iOS 5 problems

We recently discovered that due to a bug in Apple’s Game Center example code our games crash on devices upgraded to iOS 5 with Game Center enabled.

An upgrade fixing this problem is already on its way to Apple, but it will surely take few day to get approved. But there also is a temporal solution to play Neuroshima Hex & Neuroshima Hex Puzzle while waiting for the update:

1. Launch Game Center app.

2. Log out from Game Center.

3. Launch NSHex or NSHexPuzzle

You won’t be able to earn any new achievement or leaderboards points, but except from that both games should work just fine.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and support!

New armies for Neuroshima Hex – New York and Neojungle

Update: Neuroshima Hex version 1.30 is now available on the App Store. To celebrate the new update we put all our apps on sale! Neuroshima Hex (4.99$ -> 2.99$), Neuroshima Hex Puzzle (2.99$ -> 0.99$) and new armies (0.99$, standard price will be 1.99$)! More info on Big Daddy’s Creations website.

As many of you know the four armies of Neuroshima Hex are not the only one created for this amazing game. Today we’d like to announce two new Armies – New York and Neojungle – will be available soon as an expansion of your favorite Neuroshima Hex for iPhone and iPad.

Both armies are quite unique and totally different. New York’s HQ has an amazing ability which adds additional toughness to every friendly adjacent unit, allowing it to fortify even better and faster than Moloch. And Neojungle is no worse. It starts slowly, having only low initiative units, but with every tile added it grows stronger and faster as every connected module adds bonuses to every unit in it’s Motherland. And that’s not all. Let me just mention totally unique units like the Rocket Launcher – equipped with a… rocket launcher, Nightshade – poisoning attacked units or the Sharpshooter – picking any target on it’s line of fire. This and much more will be available soon with the next Neuroshima Hex update (sent to Apple for approval last week).

Detailed description of every army can be found on Board Game Geek website.

Every new army will be available as an in-app purchase for a promotional price of 0.99$ on the day app gets approved.
