Universal Banner Saga (by Stoic)

Discussion in 'iPhone and iPad Games' started by PeteOzzy, Oct 2, 2014.

  1. Thanks guys! Someone just play it for a bit and tell me if it controls / runs / looks good. Just the general idea. I know some ports are just sloppy copy paste jobs. I'm sure they wouldn't but I'd rather not have to ask for a refund.

    I think I'm one of the only ones here who didnt know this game before, but I bought it on the basis of your positive feedback + I needed a good game to get me back into iOS gaming again, as I didn't really play that much in the past few weeks.

    Tablet only? No iPhone 6 plus support?

    It plays beautifully on iPad Mini2. Such epicness. It feels like a natively developed app, sporting a parallax effect within dialog and scenes.

    Yup, everything looks absolutely beautiful and I think the strategy in the battles will be pretty deep. Just played through the part before chapter 1, which is sort of the tutorial, and I'm already very impressed, especially by the artwork.

    Tried to instabuy it but it says that it requires >ios 7.1 . I didn't update my stable running ipad back then and now that 8.0.2 is still a bugfest I don't want to upgrade either.

    If Stoic guys could remove this requirement I'd be a happy camper...

    Does this have side bars as the images suggests on iPhone 5?

    Same here. I was going to buy it but I need jailbreak for Xbmc and I have ios 7.04 for that reason.
    I can play it in my iPhone but I prefer the big screen for detailed games

    You chose to stick with an earlier ios version. That isn't the fault of the devs.

    Wow, I always expected this to be iPad only, but now that I see it's also for the iPhone I'm definitely buying this.

    Hmm...I have IPAD Air and Iphone 6 and using IOS 8.02, didn't come across any major bugs. IOS 8.02 is a lot better than 7....

    Does this run properly on an iPad2 (7.1.1)?

    Double-dipped and proud of it. Damn, this game looks amazing on the iPad Air and really can't recommend it enough. Seriously high production values and, so far at least, looks stunning.

    There have been reports of battery drain, no battery charging and frequent crashes on ipad air. I also use an ipad air and those things are quite worrying.

    And even if I get lucky like you, the torture of doing a clean restore (backing up savegames manually, etc) just gives me shivers.

    What could possibly be different between IOS 7.0.x and 7.1 that they added the requirement anyway?
