This is a thread where you can list the games or apps that you're still waiting for those developer-promised updates. All too often a developer publishes a game on the App Store with promises of "forthcoming features" that are not included in the current version, but are attractive enough for customers to buy knowing (hoping) that the promised update will come. What is sometimes a delicate situation though is where we're still encouraged to buy the "feature-crippled" version that is currently available now, rather than later when the update comes, as it is on a limited-time half-price sale, or suchlike. Personally speaking, I haven't found myself in one of those situations, yet, where I've been blatantly lied to by a developer, but maybe others have. So I personally don't intend my post to be viewed as a "name-and-shame" type of thread (although others might want theirs to be), but rather a helpful gathering of titles where people can list the games that they're waiting for updates on, for one of two reasons: (a) so that hopefully someone can provide further info on the game in question, or (b) they can let everyone else here know the info that they have since learned when trying to find out further info themselves. So, list the games, and where possible/relevant, please include: - a link to the game. - when the promise was initially made. - when the update was promised for. - what the update you're waiting is supposed to incorporate. - the actual quote the developer said. - any URLs that support the above. - whether you have contacted the developer or not. Then if anyone — especially the developers themselves — can respond with further info on these expected updates, I'm sure we would all appreciate it. Here's my list: High Speed Chase The developer says on the App Store game-page: I don't know when this text was added to the game description, but the game is still at version 1.0.0. I have just sent an email to the developer and also sent him a link to this post, so that he has the option of replying to more than just me personally. Update: Just received an auto-reply from the developer saying "We have received your support request and aim to get back to you within 1 working day". Loopy Laboratory The game originally came with 50 levels, but a lot of people found those initial levels too quick and easy. In an email from me to the developer, dated October 17th, I said: "Do you have any plans to add more levels, over and above the original 50, in any future game updates?" He replied shortly, saying: "If the game does well I might consider releasing an update that adds new levels and/or perhaps some kind of mechanism where people can create their own." Then on October 21st, the developer promised more levels, here: http://toucharcade.com/2008/10/21/sales-on-loopy-laboratory-venger-nanosaur-2/#comment-5186 He concluded his post by saying: "On a more cheerful note: I can confirm that additional levels are on the way." I haven't heard anything about this since then, so I have no idea what the status on this is. I have just sent an email to the developer and also sent him a link to this post, so that he has the option of replying to more than just me personally. Neverputt ME The initial release of this game, although showing a lot of promise, was quite buggy, and seemed half-finished, and when I enquired on the forums here if anyone knew of any forthcoming updates to the game, the developer himself replied — http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=1667 Although he did say "Hope the update will be ready for xmas", which has since come and gone... I have just sent a PM to the developer and also sent him a link to this post, so that he has the option of replying to more than just me personally. FLOverload I didn't buy version 1 of this game, based on the reviews I read, but instead decided to wait for the developer-promised version 2 of the game. Having exchanged a few emails with the developer, he said development of the game had been put on hold while they were moving offices, simply saying that the 2.0 update "will likely be after the new year". Pipes The developer says on the App Store game-page: He hasn't said when these are coming, and I haven't heard anything about this anywhere else. I have just sent an email to the developer and also sent him a link to this post, so that he has the option of replying to more than just me personally. .
