Recently we released a long awaited update to Anodia that have a proud 2.0 version signature. There are some fun and happy parts of that process that we would like to share with you.
First of all, I think we are all fed up with the term “huge update”. It’s very common on the App Store to add one character, two costumes, 10 levels or something like that and call it a huge update. I sometimes feel that all updates on the App Store are huge . But what to call a really huge update? Enormous update? Brobdingnagian monstrosity? We really don’t feel that freely using English language to be too extravagant, we stayed with the safe “huge” for now. Yet I must say, “Brobdingnagian update” was reaaaaly tempting .
It also somewhat funny that every time when we were getting near being ready to release 2.0, something new came up. For example the new iPad’s Retina Display — after we saw with our own eyes how much of a difference it made, we had to rework all the levels to make them compatible with it. In my opinion it truly is amazing (I actually wrote an article about the Retina Display on our devlog)
After releasing such a substantial update it’s hard to concentrate on anything else then refreshing comments on the App Store, rankings etc. We read every single rating you’re posting and I must say that some of them are truly fantastic. It’s always nice to read something nice about your work, but we received so many great comments that we’re literally stunned. I’d like to paste here a couple of them:

They managed to make a visually stunning, challenging, fun game that is truly one of the best games for the iPod ever made!

One of the most fun and addicting games I have ever played. I can play the levels over and over again and still enjoy it.

I’ve had this game since darn near its inception. I’ve never kept a game on my device as long as I have this one, and I always wished for an update but had long given up hope. Still the replay value alone has kept it in my casual games folder. The recent update has more than surpassed my desires, and it truly feels like Xmas in July. Thank you for all of your hard work.
All those ratings and comments make me smile whenever I read them. And there are tons more I would love to quote here but it’s time to refresh ratings . Have fun bouncing that little ball and say hi to Trevor from me!
