    Playing this on 6+ and I can confirm that it does NOT have bars on the side. Wow, this game is gorgeous!

    iPhone support? Not sure how this is gonna work but I'll take the dive for this incredible game. Will post about the bars existence/nonexistence as soon as it downloads.

    Edit:this file is HUGE and I'm on my works wifi so I'm not sure how long this is gonna take! Just a heads up.
     
  3. Okay bought! I hope this game last me a while because I just used up the rest of my free spending money on it. Now I can't buy anything else for a while :l

    Instabought even tough I can only play at night. I just don't understand why on App Store it's not THE Banner Saga.

    I've read in review that the difficulty spike for the final boss is so steep that it is almost impossible if you don't have the right team with you. Does anyone know if the difficulty has been adjusted for the iOS release?

    Yes of course but that's not what I meant. I know it's my problem to not have 7.1 and I will buy the game for sure but not yet. I will wait to the devs changing that or I will upgrade when I can
     
  7. Sanuku where are you !?

    Should I get this if I already have it on pc? Wondering if it controls better.
     
  10. Just started and tbh, how it looks on a non-ipad is not good. I appreciate they allowed iphone users to install it but they didn't really do anything to optimize it for the iphone. All the interfaces are ridiculously small and I noticed dialogue buttons are placed in weird spots (probably because they're supposed to be big buttons on an ipad). Looking the stats nearly makes me squint my eyes.

    The game looks good but that's still to be determined. As far as the interface goes for iphone, I'm not impressed.

    I'm running 7.1.2 jailbroken. In my case it's for Controllers for All. So you could upgrade from 7.0.
     

  13. Thank you. I'll get this as soon as i can.

    Yes I use that for the dualshock too but now will be hard to upgrade to your version. I think they will change the required firmware.
    I have problems to play fine in my iOS 8 iPhone like Lawliet said.
    I bought card dungeon and I can almost read tutorials in iPhone
     
  15. Yeah unfortunately I can't recommend this game to anyone except ipad users and iphone 6+. The interface is pretty much the exact same as the ipad version of it, meaning that the scales are all the same. If you can squint then I think you can handle it. You also need tiny fingers (I have very small fingers and it still bugs me). Oddly some menus were overlapping each other on the tutorial so I had no idea what was going on. I do love the tilting effect but there isn't much else. It definitely could be playable if they rescaled the interface and the text. The gameplay tapping is fine.

    I'm NOT saying the game is terrible since I can't judge that but I'll be asking for a refund because it's just too much of a pain for me to try to play this on the iphone 6. But if you can deal with it, don't let this opinion stop you.
     

  16. Of course it's an ipad game. If you don't have one then you have been ####ed.

    My guess is that they made it Universal so it was compatable with the 6+. Yea, it works on other iPhones, but it's probably not ideal.

    Same here! Otherwise, I'll probably have to pass. I won't be upgrading my iOS until I get a new phone probably. It's not their responsibility to cater to my specific needs. I'm only one potential sale out of a lot. But the game does look amazing.

    Î've got the same message this morning, "not compatible with ios 7.02". So, i decided to upgrade, and now it works like a charm. I'm a bit afraid of my music apps (the korg ones), and i'm not used to upgrade so quickly, but this game seems really good. I've try an hour, and i like it a lot. It's in french (and other languages), so it's easier to understand.

    I'm seduced by the atmosphere, the story about the vikings, and the art.
