Zombie Attack! Second Wave XL

Like many other developers IUGO has promised iPad versions of many of their iPhone games. The current list includes:

  • Zombie Attack! Second Wave XL with enhanced graphics, new UI, and new character
  • Cliffed XL with same device head to head, new characters, improved graphics and new background
  • Implode! XL with iPad-only editor, new UI and new levels for both iPad and iPhone users
  • ESCAPE: Norm’s World XL - brand new game for iPad and iPhone

IUGO, however, revealed yesterday that these new iPad versions will come as free updates to their existing iPhone games. That means the same app will work on both iPhone and iPad and support the iPad-specific features. This should be welcome news to existing iPhone/iPod Touch owners.

    Kudos IUGO, I won't have an iPad but I wish all the devs would do this for their apps that are merely updates to their iPhone ones.

    Nice way to build brand-loyalty. Good PR and a nice way to maintain a user base. And awfully decent of them, too.

    definitely a wow move. was disappointed by the first wave of "HD" copy/paste money grabs by the airport whatever app and fieldrunners.

    Perfect IUGO.
    Much better than the money suckers devs that are trying to make more money.
    This is definitely the way to treat customers!

    Cheers,

    Bravo! I was hoping more developers would go this route or just provide a slight in-app purchase to get the iPad XL/HD version instead of charging full price. Hopefully will start a trend.

    Double Kudos. Listen up developers. Take a cue from IUGO.

    Finally, one of the bigger developers doing it right. I've lost a lot of respect for the other iPhone developers with their ridiculous overpriced separate iPad versions of games we already paid for...having to repay for the same game on the same OS is utter ****. Big kudos to IUGO, I'll definitely be buying more games from them.

    • Adams Immersive

      But the developers do—in some cases—have to do significant work to make the iPad-specific graphics/UI/whatever (and then maintain two versions into the future).

      I’ll be glad to get ZA2 for free of course, but I won’t complain about paying a couple bucks for an iPad version of other titles. We’re not talking a ton of money here, compared to any other gaming platform.

    I have a small correction on the pricing... Cliffed XL, ZA!SW XL and ESCAPE: Norm's World XL will all be priced the same as the iPhone price and will not change. If you already own these games you're good to go on the iPad.

    Implode! will have an increase of a dollar (US) for the iPad and iPhone (as it is a universal build). Again, if you already have Implode! you do not have to pay anything.

    So in other words, GRAB Implode! NOW if you don't own it!!!

    ^^ Just bought it. Thanks.

    It's great to see a dev doing a good deed for it's fanbase, I'll support you too by buying a few more in a few minutes after I check the threads on the forum.

    Just bought Cliffed due to this announcement. Other iPod Touch / iPad game makers w/ their HD crap can go suck it

    • MrMuesli

      Warning: Make sure you are within range of a cardiac treatment facility. Cliffed is intense: 0
      And again, well done IUGO. A very sensible approach I would think.

    clearly their iPhone games haven't sold as well as hoped - otherwise they wouldn't do this

    I'm sure they're glad to get the 15 fans forever (above) from this gesture

    Don't listen to menom, some people are just generally bitter. This is something the other companies should have done when the iPad was announced.

    Anyways, if it's going to be all universal apps, why make a separate XL app for each game?
