Rebuild [$2.99] for iPhone and iPod Touch is actually happening -- and soon. Tomorrow will see the debut of the post-apocalyptic strategy title on smaller devices, courtesy a big-time Universal update for the iPad versions of the game. Developer Northway tells that the update will also roll in retina support, too.

This is easily one of our favorite strategy games on the App Store this side of Civ Rev [$6.99 / HD], and we're stoked that a "maybe" porting scenario as of a couple of months ago has become a reality. If you haven't read anything about Rebuild check out our review. Or just pick it up on the App Store at its sale price of $.99 starting tomorrow through this Sunday.

    Are you constant crashes going universal as well?

      I have seen no crashes with this game on iPad 2 running 5.0.1

        It would crash nearly every turn or every 10 turns. But I am going to give it a try.

        I tried hard to fix the iPad 1 crashes with this update. I'm pretty sure it's related to running out of memory, so closing other apps should help as will disabling in-game music and attack animations.

        It is hardly your fault regardless, the original iPad is a piece of utter garbage.

         From what I've seen so far the game appears much more stable on my iPad 1 AND you seem to have addressed those occasional text corruptions as well!

      • Sarah Northway

        Yes! Those text glitches were a huge b*tch to fix. We can blame Adobe for those though, not Apple. :)

    I'm actually excited about this. I wanted to try it and was bummer when it was iPad only. I tried it online and I liked it but I'm not a fan of playing games in my browser. And a sale too?? Definitely getting it tomorrow!

      It's ridiculous. I've been checking back periodically by whatever means possible and it still says that.

        Same problem here. Grrrr.

      Same, I've been trying to buy it all morning...

    • Sarah Northway

      It's an issue on Apple's servers that they say they're trying to fix, and there's sadly nothing I can do but wait. I hope having zero sales on iPhone launch day isn't as big a disaster as it sounds. :/

        Well, Sarah, I'm buying it either way.

        I had a feeling it was Apple's problem... It said that this app and twelve other couldn't be purchased. Que lastima...

    Please update app description when it works again. I will buy!

  • http://twitter.com/MapleMeringue No-no

    Going mad trying to buy this! Didn't even know it existed, argh!

    It is now the day after tomorrow and purchasing it still doesn't work.

    Sarah,

    I would call Apple and raise the undead to their doorstep. It doesn't take two days to clear a file lock. They should waive their cut on sales for at least two days after the issue is resolved.

    TA loves this game, see if they will post a one sentence update to this article when the issue is fixed so the news gets to everyone who is waiting.

    • Sarah Northway

      Hah, as if! I can't get anything but auto-replies from Apple. Their iron wall of apathy is too high.
