App description: *** In honor of our new Verizon users, Xenome is now on sale! ***

NEW! Support added for 2nd generation devices!

Welcome to Silica Flats. A wasteland ripe for exploration. That is, if you manage to stay alive long enough.
The land looks different from what you remember, but that's bound to happen to anyone who's been in cryo-stasis for the last 250 years. You've been reactivated during the advent of the Union-Prime war and both factions want your allegiance. More importantly, either faction would rather see you back on ice (in one way or another) than to be aligned with their enemy.

Welcome to your first immersion into the Xenome Universe. A 3D Action/Adventure RPG that will have you struggling for survival as you unravel the mystery of who you are and what your purpose is.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Xenome, Episode 1 has the right stuff when it comes to role-playing - Pocket Gamer 7/10

With a rich storyline, about a dozen hours of gameplay, and a true feeling of freedom, there isnt much not to like about this game. In fact, if this trend keeps up, the iPhones WoW may be coming sooner than we think. In other words, do yourself a favor and go buy Xenome now. - SlideToPlay 4/4

It's clear Nine Pound Studios spent a lot of time on the artwork, music, sounds and in-game graphics because they're as good as anything I've experienced in mobile gaming. - TUAW

"It begs the question of how you can manage to follow up after something this epic?" - Appspy

"One of the most robust games in the App Store." - NoDPad

"An excellent adventure with an engaging storyline... [that] managed to take gaming on the platform an immense step further than anyone else" - Gamezebo

Well that sucks, no mention of incompatibility in iTunes but it will not install on a 2nd Gen touch running iOS 4.0.

Is this game compatible with older devices (such as the ipod touch 2g?)


The app store description would indicate yes but in the preview thread there was a lot of discussion that compatibility for older devices was still a work in progress . . .

This will be my standard question for a while but: will there be an iPad version at all?

Edit: Just went over to the upcoming thread it seems we'll get an iPad one. Guess I'll wait then.

Anyone able to estimate how many hours until it arrives in Europe ? Specifically, Norway.

It's 2 PM here, on July 7. This game is scheduled for a July 8 release.
So should I be seeing it in a few hours, or tomorrow ?

Ok, deleted and redownloaded on my PC and the same problem, will not install via iTunes but it did install when I download it directly to my touch via wifi. Runs OK but not great, a bit of lag here and there.

Controls are... well at this stage lets just say that I may need to get used to them perhaps but they are not as smooth, responsive or natural as say Gamelofts and buttons seem a little unresponsive especially in battle. Character movement\animation is one dimensional and pretty basic but environment though sparse is nice.

A little bug, at one point I put my touch down for a minute or 2 and it went into sleep mode, when I returned to the game background music played but all sound effects were gone.

Off to kill some Scorps and Loungers more in a while.
