    i was just wondering if there is any chance of an update? how have gameloft been in the past regarding updates?

    because i think the although BIA is really fun on foot; the vehicle modes are unbearable for me, and it seems likes it really needs a fix...

    also is there any way of contacting the developers or something? :confused:

    thanks!

    I contacted their support regarding Asphalt 4 being unuseable after the latest updates (car drifting far to easily) and I've gotten several replies.

    Some canned responses like "thank you for contacting us...please try to restart your device...re-install...etc".

    Then when replying that, THAT is not the problem - a more personal response saying to wait for the next update which should be out in "a few weeks" - mind you this was before Xmas !!!

    Asked then again in the first week of january - same reply - wait for the update in the next 2 weeks - yet still not update in the app store.

    So, YES you can contact them - but whether you'll get anything usefull out of that is another question ;)

    I have roughly 5 or 6 games from Gameloft, and I don't believe I've ever seen an update or don't remember. That's what happens with the big players. Don't get me wrong I'm not bashing them, most of there games are well done but they also charge alot. That's why it's important to support the small programmers when a good game comes out. Just my 2 cents.

    Another thing that I've noticed is that smaller games from less big-shot developers tend to get more updates. For instance, Spawn Illuminati and Rebel Onslaught. Spawn just got a huge makeover, and Rebel Onslaught has just received some major improvements to it's gameplay. But all your big games, like HoS and BIA never see any significant updates besides bug fixes. Perhaps this can be justified, but it just goes to show that smaller devs really pay more attention to their community.

    I think you're totally right there.
    Gameloft makes lots of good games, but almost never gives them an update :(.

    The only GL updates I can remember off hand are Guitar Rock Tour stability updates

    There were like 3-4 the last one making the game ipodtch compatible

    GL will not update there games unless they get reports of crashes.

    I wish they made that vehicle (not the tank) easier to move. That's really the most frustrating part of the game

    I pretty much stopped playing once I did one of the vehicle levels. I wish it were all on foot. I like that gameplay a lot better.

    Did the Spawn update disappear? I went to bed planning on updating this morning, but when I got up, all it apps were up to date. Weird. My spawn illuminati game is the same as it was before so ididnt accidentaly update it.

    If you're talking about the Jeep, on my iPhone it seems to only want to turn one direction! It's way too...nimble almost and kinda stutters around the map.. Just try to pound through those vehicle levels.. they are the worst, but usually there's some running around mixed in!

    hmm. how about we start a protest! and everyone gives the game a 1/2 star review, telling them to improve it, and then maybe it'll happen! lol.

    I thought it was the opposite actually, although I had problems with both the tank and vehicle. The only good thing about driving the truck is that is actually has analog controls....

    why don't they keep releasing new expansion packs? It seems like it would take like a day to make a new level... give them a few weeks and you'd have a whole new campaign! they already have the engine ready, you would think they'd want to drive new sales!
