Small World for iPad grievance (loong)
Mon, 15 October 2012 22:49
I understand this post technically belongs in the iPad forum, but sadly that forum has all but died along with the Small World app. I'm simply trying to get somebody's attention up at Days of Wonder who will actually do something about the app. You would think that a company that makes $20 million in revenue could afford even a small, temporary development team to update the Small World app.
This game is too great to go to waste! If anybody else feels the same way, please send Days of Wonder an email about it!
Anyway, here's a copy of my email to Days of Wonder and their response:
> *Problem Description*
My problem with Small World for iPad is that it's been left to rot in the App
Store graveyard of abandoned apps. It's been more than 2 years now without an update.
I played Small World frequently on my iPad until about a 9 months ago; it's now
deleted from my iPad because I got sick of destroying the weak AI on non-retina
I'm willing to hand over stacks of money to you guys for any of the following features:
- Online Multiplayer
- 3 to 5 player Pass n Play.
- More Expansions!!!! (Underground, etc.)
- Retina display
I understand Ticket to Ride is the cash cow, but please just put even one soul on Small
World development, if that's all the personel you can spare. PLEASE DON'T LET THIS
I love your games.
Thank you for your request.
We are aware this app needs some refresh.
Our R&D Team is pretty small, that's why we did not have time/capacity to update
this app, while focusing on our other app Ticket to Ride.
Just to make things clear: we did not abandon Small World. We plan to update it but
we cannot announce yet any availability date or features set.
