The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

I think they left out some of the alien types. They are included now. Though that might have been the updates prior to this one.

Yep, Thin men, for example, are never chosen in 1.02. A bug.

I haven't been able to find anything else different. If you are on iOS where 1.03 is not not yet available, don't let that stop you. 1.02 is perfectly playable, it's just not the whole game.

So... what about those topics about people using arc throwers against Thin Men and how difficult it was to deal with Thin Men. What were they doing?

1.0.2 was missing Thin Men (and, I think I heard someone say Ethereals too). 1.0.3 appears to have all the aliens in the pool, but has taken different amounts of time to get into the various app stores.

There are also some minor wording changes in the rules in the 1.0.3 version - the one I know for sure is in the Mission rules, where 1.0.2 says "if one or more soldiers assigned to the mission task are not killed" and 1.0.3 says "if one or more soldiers assigned to the mission are not killed"

It was broken in version 1.02, on all platforms.

It's just that 1.03 has shipped for Android, PC, and browser-based platforms. But 1.03 hasn't shipped for Apple yet.

As soon as it ships on Apple, you get the same fixes. If the Apple browser can run the in-browser version, you don't even have to wait.

Does anyone know whether there will be 1 app for all languages, so all languages will have the same version/ rules?
