I am really excited to have the initial release of Racing Demon in the App Store. This version is for two players and iPad only. There are lots of improvements that I want to make and the next version is my main focus at the moment.
Here is the list of changes that I am considering:
- A universal app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
- Play against up to four opponents
- Play a match over multiple hands (first to 100 points or the best score from five hands)
- Game Center achievements
- Audio chat between players
- Alternate card design
- Improved sound effects
I don't guarantee that all of these will necessarily make it into v1.1, or that this is a complete list.
Racing Demon currently supports iOS 5.1 and later meaning that as a universal app it could run on a huge range of devices (I am currently testing on an iPhone 3GS and a first generation iPad among others). I am resisting the temptation to go all out iOS 7, which would restrict the supported devices.
If you have any suggestions or feedback I would love to hear from you. Feel free to leave a comment here, or contact us through email, Twitter or App.net.
Version 1.1 on its way
Racing Demon v1.1 is complete and is currently in review with Apple. I hope that it will be in the App Store early in the week starting 4 November 2013.
Version 1.1 turned into a major update. All of the items listed above made it in with the exception of Game Center achievements. The update also includes improvements to the help and settings functions, and to the overall flow of the game.
Game Center achievements and leaderboards are on the candidate list for version 1.2.
