    Sometimes it take some time for the App Store to show up the pending update. You can try closing the app store app and opening it again if you haven't try that already. Just give it some time and it should eventually kick in I think. Sorry :(

    Definitely do not remove the game before updating cause you will lose your progress. Once you get the update and open the game for the first time your save will be synced and save in your iCloud. :)

    Hello!

    I just wanted to let you all know that new update just went live!

    What's New in Version 1.3:
    - Support for iPads without Retina displays - Yes you can play even on those older devices as long as you have iOS 9!
    - Tweaks to the iPad touch controls - Now it should feel even sharper.
    - ??? - Do not miss it...

    Also there is someone on the leaderboard that beat more than 500 levels and still playing :eek: I've checked it out and it's legit. To give you some context it's about 40 hours of playing! Is that anyone from here? would be nice to talk to that person :)

    Thank you all once again! :eek:

    First.... thank you Gregory Pykacz for your kindness of a code to try your new game. I've only scratched the surface with about 1 hour of gameplay and am very pleased so far. I really like the no instruction approach and big blue finger help. I really have enjoyed both figuring out how things work as well as being surprised by all the twists and turns the game takes. Definitely requires thought but allows progress without penalty so nice to keep moving on in the game. Good game... sure to keep me interested for a good while. Thanks again for the code.

    Great game. I’m slowly moving through the levels. You should update the tags on this thread to reflect that it is Universal and add iPad screenshots. Looks great on my iPad Pro 10.5. Thanks.

    Thanks for kind words it always helps ;)

    Also I've updated the thread post and on a preview it was saying universal but on commit looks like it doesn't pick up the latest data from the App Store :confused: It's my first game thread so I'm probably doing something wrong here :p If you have any suggestions please let me know ;)

    Thank you! :eek:

    AWESOME!

    I tried for few days as well and finally beat it again. I was going to post the video here because it was tricky af but now since you beat it as well I'll probably just keep it in case someone else has problems :p So if someone here wants the solution just let me know here!

    Thanks for not giving up! I really feels awesome to see people keep playing ;)

    Hey All!

    If you've been following this topic you know that I made follow.trail using 9 year old MacBook Pro. This year Apple decided that all new app as well as new updates have to be build with iOS SDK 11 which is not available in older versions of Xcode and newer versions of Xcode are not supported on older machines like mine. So I decided that now is the time to pull the trigger and update my old Mac to something newer. And here it is:

    [​IMG]

    I know that this sounds silly but you have no idea how huge deal this is for me. Now I can finally add iPhone X support to the follow.trail as well as some of the new features that I had in mind for a while. Plus I can continue my work on the new game but shhh it is not ready to be shown yet. Maybe later this year, who knows, but since I’m doing this after regular day job hours I can’t promise you anything.

    But I wanted to talk about something else here. So I have prepared update with iPhone X support and I just wanted to share with you that I’m going to have a little beta available here on Touch Arcade forums, once Apple approves Test Flight build. I know that this is not most exciting thing ever, but if you are interested in, keep your eyes open! I’ll post a link to the new topic here.


    Aslo I just want to say THANK YOU! This would not be possible without you.

    :)

    I’d love to beta test new version.

    I DID buy the original version, but never got too far.
    I have an iPad Air 2, and an iPhone 7

    Maybe I should mention that the only new feature in this version is the support of iPhone X. So if you played game before it will not be different. the beta is to make sure that this version did not break anything else :rolleyes:

    BUT! I would love to hear some of your ideas for the new features. Last time ppl wanted the level selection and after some struggle I was able to add it to the game :) So I'll happy to hear your ideas again and maybe even add them to the game if I'll be able to :oops:

    I have plans for updates containing support for haptic feedback and achievements. I was also thinking about adding something like a dark mode but that would be harder to implement.

    Any other ideas? :confused:
