When is the iPad release?

Post by FroBodine » Thu Nov 13, 2014 5:49 pm

The store page says the game is aimed at having cross platform multiplayer functionality.

Is the iPad version also released today? I did not see it in the Apple app store. If not, when is it expected to be released?

Thanks!

We generally launch on iPad after the desktop versions, as the update process is elongated by the Apple approvals delay. I don't have a solid date for it as yet, but I would expect it to be early in the New Year.

Cheers

There is this http://www.slitherine.com/coming_soon

But there has been no official thread for Hell launch and there has been for '65, so not sure that it is gospel.

Hello All,

We do not yet have a release date, but we have submitted the build to Apple. Hopefully it won't be too much longer, but it is now in the final stages and hopefully there will be an official announcement soon. Sorry for the delay.

The game map is randomly generated so is not a specific place, but rather captures the feel of the war. You have to deal with the kinds of issues the US Army had to cope with back then and to do this we need to randomize it so you don't know where the enemy is coming from. Each game will have the Ho Chi Min trail in a different location, giving lots of replay value and meaning you have to learn how to cope with an insurgent enemy rather than learn where they will spawn.

think you meant to post this is the Vietnam ’65 thread, as this is the forum for Hell, but yes you are correct in what you have put :wink:

A couple of bugs I've run into on my iPad Air 2. During the last tutorial mission, with the priest on his way to his annual blessing, if you don't move your guys to the exact spots asked for (easy to over or undershoot by one square if you aren't looking at the screen exactly right), the enemy turn never processes once you've ended your turn. And in the first campaign mission, with you investigating reports of disturbances in some village, the game locked up during the demon turn. Froze right up and I had to kill the app.

Other than that, this is a very appealing and even humorous game.

Hey Wombat,

I was playing on mission 1 last night and didn't see a crash, could you let me know what turn this happened on and how you made this happen?

IIRC, I had hit next turn and was watching the demon side when it froze. What's weird is that when I minimized and then reopened the app, the screen was frozen on the earlier tutorial mission which had also locked up; it's almost as if it never fully recovered from that or something. Very odd.

Could be; I didn't know that was even possible! iOS is sort of a black box to me.
