Did you ever think about smuggling candies? ‘Cause that’s what we’d like to offer you to do in the AppStore version of Underworld.
After our survey on the AppStore friendly commodity pack was launched last week, we have got a lot more suggestions than we could imagine. It’s so exciting that the game isn’t even distributed officially and the community is already so big and active and ready to help. Thanks a lot, we appreciate the support very much!
We examined the whole bunch of ideas scrupulously and have finally chosen the "sweet" setting. The logic behind this is that we don’t want to wait two more months to get rejected by Apple and want to make the game much more fun instead by letting all the AppStore people join it. Good point, right? Many UW players have put the same idea to the suggestion box. So, this is our decision on the commodity pack.
Due to a large amount of participants we are going to award not 10, but 25 of you (randomly chosen). The winners will get a special bonus in the AppStore version of the game (you’ll be informed).
Finally, two more things you want to ask probably. First, we intend to maintain Cydia’s version of the game after the official launch. Second, AppStore launch is scheduled to happen in the middle of March. Yay!
yeah I am wondering the same thing…. Personally I do not want to trade candy, so if am “forced” to do that I *might* rethink playing this game.
So maybe jailbreakers could still see drugs? Or have a downloadable
skin or something so we could choose? Please?
I’m thinking that if you have Sweet Underworld installed, and you open Underworld then you can see the Sweet Underworld people, regular underworld people and drugs instead of candy. Basically it would do a search on startup to see if Sweet Underworld is installed, and if not, they would not be able to play with sweet underworld people.
Also, to add to my above post, will our accounts be reset? I am at level “7″ and will probably be able to upgrade tomorrow to level “8″. I know I an not that far along but I would not like to start back at the beginning if it could be helped… I installed this game on the first day of it’s release on Cydia. (if I remember correctly) and I would hope that you would not do this to to all the beta testers…. I do realize that it wouldn’t be “fair” to the rest of the people that buy it on the app store, and of course you are the devs and can do whatever you want. Btw I would gladly buy it on the appstore if it meant that I would not have my account erased and reset.
let me hear if you think its time to get the translation on. where can i post my email that only you can see it?? i think the best would be you send me textes you wanna have translated and i`ll send them back in german. or do you have a better idea how to do it? im waiting for your answer =)
Can’t say for sure how are we going to treat both worlds - will they be connected in some way or not. We understand it’s important though, so I’ll let you know the details as soon as we come to the final conclusion.
you should see if there is a way to convert the candies or whatever into the drugs, so that the cydia version works with the app store version.. just different names, same game and money and network, if possible
Hey I had a question, up until yesterday I was running 2.1 software on my phone. I updated to 2.2.1 last night and reinstalled underworld but for some reason it won’t open. It just keeps going to the loading screen then flashes back to my home screen…tried removing and installing but same thing. Any ideas?
Carlos, this is a known problem, the game doesn’t launch on some phones. Very strange issue that we can’t even reproduce on our devices at all Although we are pushing an update to Cydia soon, with many improvements and bug fixes. It might help.
Hey guys, I figured seeing how I’m one of the top dealers in the US I would say some things. GREAT APP. Can not wait to see the Candy Version of the game should be more fun for the little kids too. Carlos I just updated to 2.2.1 and it’s not working for me now. Let me know if you find a fix. Thanks
cmon guys first the bots now the servers
could you please throw us a little bonus for the wait and make it so bots bought all our stuff when we get it back? i’ve been stuck with some ecstasy for about 4 hours and need that space for more coke. lol
Great Game! Looking at the voting page gives me pause though. A few of the items would definitely be a help in terms of making the “world” seam more real. My only concern is that if you take things too far we might as well be playing GTA-4. Keep it up! I hope the server problems don’t eat you alive. When you launch 1.1 will it load automatically or will it be a manual upgrade? Also, will all of inventory disappear? I’m hoping that when the servers come back on-line that all of my money and drugs will reappear. Details, Details…
Good Job /:0>
paulie44: As far as the server goes when it comes back up all you info should still be there, as this is not the first time I have not been able to connect to it, but it always comes back with everything I had before.
I think having the Underworld we play now co-exist with the AppStore version would be essential to this game exploding. And all of the beta testers would automatically be rewarded, as we will be higher levels thananyone to begin with, and there will be alot of them.
If not possible, you would have to find a way around it. Have servers separate, but at least have current version overide Appstore version, a skin, I dunno because I’m not a programmer, but I know its essential
I have been playing this religiously over the past ocuple weeks and have seen myself raise levels 5x faster than before. I would support this in the app store but I would like for a few bugs to be fixed first.
Do you respond on twitter? I know that this isn’t the place for that.
Grego, yes, I’m answering in twitter.
What comes to the commodity survey rewards - I think we will have to stick to the players who left their comments right in the game. This is the only way we know the exact player to give the bonus to.
Great weblog right here! Additionally your web site rather a lot up very fast! What web host are you using? Can I get your associate hyperlink to your host? I desire my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol
