I'm a little confused...I've thought an Android version was confirmed but if I'm reading the forum here, it seems not sure yet, that one is released?

Would be great if the devs could do a statement regarding this.

Hi Marco,

Unfortunately an Android version is not in the works. There are significant technical and artistic difficulties in supporting multiple screen sizes and resolutions.

However, we will be releasing the iOS game on the Mac App Store and as a Windows application (available from DVG.com).

Hi Kevin,

this is sad news.

Frankly, I do not fully understand the reason...since there are a lot of Android apps, which do resize. And on Windows there are different screen resolutions as well ...so I guess there is not enough budget to do it all ?

And why do you not just support two screen resolutions (e.g Nexus-7 resolution and Full-HD)...this would be IMO fully ok.

This app is anyways not consumed by casual 'I focus on good graphics' gamers and the fans surely would accept graphical inconsistencies...

Any thoughts of putting it on the Windows App Store for Win 8 RT/Pro?

Yes. The game engine we have developed on currently does not target Windows 8. Once it does our game should run on it. In the meantime this will be a downloadable executable from DVG.com.

I just found out there's an iPad version of this so I rushed over here to see if there was an Android version I could play on my Nexus 10. I'm sad now.
