Request for Great Battles Medieval on the iPad

Post by vicco » Mon Feb 28, 2011 1:54 pm

Now that there will be a version of this game for the Android system, any chance for an iPad version? I know that some developers are turned off by the great bad Apple. But, us iPad users are hungry for some real wargames for this platform.

A similar request for the Battlefield Academy.

Our first iPad release will be Egypt Engineering an Empire so no decisions on what is next yet!

Someone must have paid Slitherine to bring this game to Android tablets. I mean, analysts expect 28 million iPads to be sold in 2011. How many Android tablets have been sold? :roll: It will take years to match 28 million.

28 million iPads = :idea:

I'd buy GBM and Battlefield Academy for iPad -- no question. I just d/l'ed Egypt for iPad yesterday but haven't had time to play it yet.

I must dig this tread up since I fully support to port GBM such a great game to ipad device. I dare to say ipad 2 will change the ecosystem of RTS and war game as it has really powerful dual CPUs and pretty touch screen, and more importantly, pointed out by triari, a huge number of users. You can see more and more RTS games will be ported to such kind of tablet in coming few years. Don't be too late to follow this trend, alternatively, to be the pioneer of the trend, you will earn what you expected even unexpected very soon!! Sincerely to look forward GBM and other great war games produced by your company appearing in ipad.

It is something we are looking at but it is a bigger job so we started with the easier port first. We'll have to see if it throws up and significant tech issues as we investigate.

The developer has been tied up with other tasks and not had time to look in to it yet. We certainly hope so but dont have a time line yet.
