Has anyone noticed if any of the ported software works better in one environment (Android, iPad, PC) over another? Or are the software issues identical on all devices?

I could potentially use any or all three of the above devices and wanted to know if I should give preference to one over another.

Thanks.

They are all built off the same Unity environment. iOS is usually the latest to update so you will get fixes slower. Otherwise the only platform specific bugs are likely to be interface (touch screen/mouse/keyboard) bugs.

Currently (V1.00 and V1.01) I am experiencing the same error in Escape from Innsmouth on all 3 platforms. Some people have claimed to have work around but as is, it is game breaking (you can't finish).

I have certainly managed to win the Escape from Innsmouth scenario, so it can't be for all devices.

For what it's worth, I use a Nexus 7.

Wow you're the first person that I've heard of that's done that! Do you know how many turns you took? And no lockup to deal with at all?

No, I can't remember unfortunately. And no, the app didn't lock up at all.

Ahh, you're a playtester! Which build were you using as clearly something has broken between that build and the current public releases?

I've also finished Escape from Innsmouth, on both a Samsung S6 and an iPad Air, I'm not a playtester so I played the recent builds.

I used an iPad,Samsung S7, and my pc. Perhaps it has something to do with what map tiles,search tokens,or investigators are used?

Oh rats! While its great to hear about successfully completing #2, I guess it'll be trickier for them to hunt down the problem.
