Longest Day for Android: Fatally Bugged

Post by Seleukos » Thu Jan 01, 2015 3:51 am

Without dwelling in detail on the other things like phantom or indestructible German unts here and there, and all the nutty stuff that happens when you reload a saved game, here's the game breaker:

Gold Beach. Purchase Unit command is broken. You need to buy a unit like the antitank infantry which can execute the March special ability victory condition. Therefore the scenario can't be won and no further scenarios can be unlocked. I've also seen it posted elsewhere the scenario can't be won on the other victory condition of eliminating all enemy units because one of the German units can't be seen or killed. Given the other bugs, there's no reason to disbelieve it.

Come on, 88mm. Please patch the game to the version it should have been released as in the first place.

From all the comments, this game appears to be very buggy. This, coupled with the developers being non-existent on the forums, really turns me off to this company who makes Frontline.

Slitherine has a very good reputation, but they should think twice about supporting games by this developer. They are sub par, and I will really be careful when purchasing from Slitherine in the future, and make sure they are strongly supporting a game before I buy.

I've got 30+ hours into FL:RtM on PC with absolutely no issues. Sounds like they might have rushed the second release, but who knows?

So this past weekend I noticed that Frontline: Longest Day had moved to the front of the queue on my Kindle Fire. Opened the game, went back to a Gold Beach save and yes, an update: can buy units now ! I got my AT guy, made him execute the March command and voila, since I'd already captured all objectives, looked like all I had to do was mop up the remaining pockets of Germans with the scenario as good as won.

Wrong. I had some things to do this morning, saved the game 2-3 times and came back to it. On the last save, somehow Fog of War clouds rolled in over map territory already previously cleared by capturing the Signal objectives, meaning I can't see or move troops to kill the remaining Germans.

Thus I still can't win Gold Beach and damned if I'm going to waste any more time on this game.
