    I don't know if it's big or not (e.g. bug fixes or new content) because it doesn't show up on the HOS page, just in my applications folder, but it is Hero of Sparta's first update (1.0.1)

    They say it's a "HD" sound update. I'm curious to try it out.

    It's kind of weird because the update is dated 12/3/08. Plus it seems to come and go in the updates list on my iPod Touch.

    that date is the appsubmission date, not the update date.

    It was submitted on 12/03/08 and released on 12/06/08.

    However the appstore does list 1.0.1 as the lastest version.

    Once it's in appshopper you can see when it came out if it's brand new it'll take an hour or two to appear, but I didn't see it listed yet only the release and the price drop

    For me, the game is in dire need of a sound effect update. Everything else is great, but the weapon sounds are just poor.

    Next time, read the original post. I said that I didn't know what the update was for, just that it was the first update for HOS. Besides, at least half my posts aren't begs for promo codes ;)

    That's what she said!

    Anyways, they did say they were coming out with an update for the sounds since that was one of the biggest complaints of the game.

    Has anyone else played this since the update? It seems like there have been some other small changes too... at least things i didn't remember since playing it through the first time.. Now even the smallest of the bad guys can get you into a headlock or whatever that you need to press on screen buttons to get out of, and there seem to be some new camera angles.. can anyone else back me up?

    Yeah I have noticed some changes - sound quality, strangely, not being one of them. A change that has really been annoying me, however, is the fact that they changed the music on the level steamrock, which I constantly replay just to listen to the awesome music, so that the first track only plays through once before changing to the second track. Arrrg!! Frustrating! I used to always listen to that track in endless replay, and now I can't unless I want to constantly restart the level. Is there any way to un-update??

    If you haven't emptied your recycle bin on your computer, the original ipa file would still be there. You could delete the updated version and drag this file back in.

    Couldn't agree more. So much for replayability.

    I wish they could do something about the game's slowdown when they are lots of monsters fighting.

    One of my biggest gripes with the game was the sound, so I was excited to see if it had been fixed.

    Nope. A perfect example is when your character swings his sword in a combo there isn't a sound for all the hits, just a few of them. It makes it hard to know if you're connecting or not.

    Oh well...maybe sometime soon they'll release another update. At least they ARE working on making the game better.
