El Alamein - 2017 Checkpoint - Worth Getting?

Post by DonCzirr » Tue Jul 11, 2017 11:33 pm

I'm on the fence atm.

I've always been on the verge of getting this game and then hesitated after seeing some mixed reactions. (technical / balance issues cited)

Now with the App-ocalypse in progress and Slitherine moving away from publishing significant war games on IOS, I guess it's now or never.

Any final thoughts on this game that will receive no more support?

Is it worth 9.99 USD as an orphaned app?

Sadly this game is not in Unity and porting it is prohibitively expensive so it wont be updated to Unity & 64 bit and we're unable to even make the slightest code changes as its a code base we have no knowledge of and even if we did, Apple don't accept updates unless you convert to 64 bit so the game is what it is and is not going to change.

Yep - I have become crystal clear on Slitherine's updated IOS stance Iain. :wink:

Thanks for the confirm on El Alamein's status however.

As the outlook for future war games with "meat" to them on IOS seems quite grim, I am reviewing all existing titles that I might grab before they vanish and then tuck them away in my secure IOS 10.3 vault forever ....
