Recently we were working on another update of Neuroshima Hex. It’s now officially ready and was sent to Apple for approval. It’s now officially ready for D.O.W.N.L.O.A.D! Exactly 50 hours – that little time it took Apple to review this update!
This version is a feature-rich one. First of all, we made Neuroshima Hex an universal app. This means all iPad owners who already bought the game may now launch it on their iPads and enjoy the native, full screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels! We also changed the UIs design to make it more “iPadish”, so now you’ll have easier access to all in-game features like in-game help view (embedded in Popover view!), manual and undo. And to make it even more fun when playing against your friend, you can now put the iPad between both of you and use the button with both arrows to flip the screen, so everyone will see the board with correct orientation on his or her turn!
Another this we added is the Retina Display support. We’re aware that many of you have new iPhones and iPod Touches with cool 960 x 640 pixels resolution. To let those of you to enjoy playing Neuroshima Hex even more we prepared special set of graphics and made every element of NS Hex’s UI to look great at this resolution.
And last but not least is the Game Center support! Starting from version 1.2 all of your battles fought against AI opponents will be awarded with points and will accumulate in 3 different leaderboards made to hold points from fighting three different AI’s difficulty levels. Oh, and you’ll get bonus points for making additional carnage.
Together with access to leaderboards you’ll also get 54 new achievements to gain! Those are awarded for various kinds of destruction and more you cause, the better the achievement you get. Every achievement is also awarded with points and there’s exactly 529 points to earn!
So that’s what we call a feature-rich update 🙂 Keeps your fingers crossed while waiting for this update to become available. Oh, and one more thing. Go and download it if you didn’t do so already! The price goes up starting from day one of this update and it will be is 4,99$, so if you want to save few bucks, you can buy it now for 2,99$ and have the free update in few days.
