    yeah, lack of polished games is killing me... I love my android devices (evo 3d and Transformer) but kinda miss being able to purchase little games on a whim and know I was getting something that would keep me entertained.

    Was hoping that this would be the start of things looking eaiser for devs to make good little games for the platform.

    Maybe Icecream sammich will smooth some stuff out like Google keeps telling us.

    Just to update you all.

    We are one bug away from a full release, but that one bug is a bit of a bastard and we've already wasted three man weeks on it. Not including the 2 I just had on vacation which is why I've personally seemed quiet.

    At the time of writing we were two days away from release. Sadly we still are.

    We have a nasty driver bug that's corrupting memory at random which explains some of the testers' reports of sporadic crashing in places where the iOS version worked just fine.

    Believe me, we're seriously keen to get this nailed and the game shipped. Watch this space.

    We've found and fixed our killer bug! :)

    (It was indeed a driver problem).

    We're just wrapping up the details now, but the game should be on sale via the Android Market in a couple of days for the giddy price of $2.99.

    Thanks to everyone for their help and support. :)

    Hopefully that driver issue wasn't too bad a bug to nip and we get this soon...
    got my wallet ready.

    Heh, it was a nightmare that sucked up 2 guys for a fortnight trying to get a solid repro case, then identify the issue, and then workaround it.

    That was yesterday though. The game should be on the store sometime tomorrow. :)

    Well, it should start showing up in the Market any time now. I hit the publish button about 30 seconds ago. :)

    I'm gonna need to finesse the marketplace icons/text/stuff a bit when I've had some sleep but at least it's now available.

    Get it here from the Market

    Is there any difference between the two apks? One is 47.26MB and the other is 48.52MB. The smaller one shows up in the Market but the larger one shows up when I look at "View More Applications". I'm ready to purchase but I want make sure I get the best app for my device (HTC EVO 4G). Thanks!

    In the market there is a warning message that says not compatible with your device- Droid X


    ****Update - I have a Droid X running CM7 that is no longer functional as a phone, and it does not get the error message when trying to purchase the game. But my working, GB .602 Droid X gets the message that it is not compatible and I do not even have the option to buy it.

    Not seeing it for the Desire... I fully appreciate it's an outdated phone, no hard feelings, but it would have been nice to have a post here to clarify you were ditching support for the older models if that's the case.

    Not sure what happened with the desire - it should certainly work but I wasn't babysitting the final uploads.

    The difference between apps is purely what compressed texture formats are supported, so customers should go with whatever the market recommends. It was either this or make the download 4x larger. :)

    I'll get back to you about the unsupported stuff, thanks...

    Now that GLWG has been released to the Market, I think this topic can be closed.

    All discussion/questions about the game should now be posted here.
