iOS5 Crashing Game

October 31, 2011

We are aware of the new build of iOS crashing the app when you play the game. I apologize for taking so long to fix this. We’ll work on it as soon as we can. Thanks for understanding!

Yup, You’ve Been Banned

October 8, 2011

There’s always a few bad apples in a basket – it’s a fact of life, it seems. I did not want to spend the time building a user-banning system simply because the time would be much better spent working on actual features/improvements. However, we’ve been forced to actually spend the time and do it because some players don’t understand their vulgarity is not welcomed.

There might be some additional features such as flagging users. Whether it’s implemented or not will depend on the amount of additional complaints we get after the current batch of bans – hopefully we’ve thrown out all the bad apples.

If you were banned, congratulations, you deserved it!

Update Woes…

September 4, 2011

I apologize if you updated your game and lost your awards. In the new update, the awards are now synchronized with the server (they used to be only stored locally). All your statistics should remain intact so getting most awards back should not be that hard (hopefully). Also, for those of you who were worried about changing your name and losing your stats (to get the “I’m Somebody award”), don’t worry! All your statistics are kept with your account even if you change your screen name.

To change your screen name, go to Options (the ‘gear’) and then tap on your name there. Please send us an email if you are having any issues.

Modified Word Arena Published!

August 26, 2011

We’ve finally been able to resubmit our modified version of Word Arena and it is now published. It has a lot of fixes and changes.

One particular feature that we wanted to point out is the awesome ability to switch back and forth between the board results and the rankings after each round. Although our previous version allowed you to go back to the results from the rankings before the next round starts, this version took that even further and lets you go back and forth between them!

Another big addition is in-game awards. This will encourage players to try out all the different features in the game in a fun way.

If you are still playing the first release, please download the new one. Don’t worry about the fact that it’s a different game on the marketplace – all your scores and statistics will be transferred over. Also, we’d really appreciate it if you rate the game again if you already did for the first game.

Thanks and see you in the game!

Corruption in Leaderboards

August 15, 2011

Just wanted to add a quick note to let everyone know that we’re aware of the issues on the leaderboards (missing profiles, scores and duplicated entries). We’re working on addressing this issues and we’ll hopefully be back to normal soon. Once they are restored, we’ll post an update here and if you are still missing your profile, drop us a line and we’ll manually take care of your individual case.

In other news, we’ve submitted a modified version of “Word Arena” – stay tuned!
