Play big ! Alchemic phone comes to the iPad (and iPhone)

Hi guys,

After loads of requests and encouragements to port Alchemic Phone to the iPad and iPhone, I finally did it !

Free as always, you can now play on “the big screen” and also have your iPhone friends enjoy the game too. I think they have been teased enough after a year 🙂

You can find it on the AppStore here:
Download free from the AppStore

Keep in mind that having more players (from iOS) will allow me to devolve more time to update the game, on WP as well, and keep it growing.
So, please consider downloading and rating it positively on the iPad/iPhone, even if you already enjoyed it on Windows Phone !

Remember, five stars keep the game growing and evolving !

Thanks
Andy

Finally…

… managed to update the game !

Thanks everybody for sending suggestions and comments. I’ve had barely time to check the suggestions so I developed a tool that sorts and aggregates them to quickly find the best ones.

For the comments in here, again, I hope I might be able to check them more often. If you have something important to communicate, send an email, please. For now, enjoy the update !

Back on track and freezing bug

Ok, after a hectic week with problems publishing “Logic Games” I can go back to Alchemic.

Please note I’ve found a bug (thanks John): if you enable ‘Roll Realms’ and ‘Don’t loop Realms’ in the settings together, you will get an apparent freeze on Realm open. I’m posting an update where you can’t enable both together. For now you can ‘unfreeze’ it by scrolling the place where elements should appear.

And thanks to everybody downloading Logic Games and rating it ! It’s back on track on the US market

Alchemic Extras !!!

Finally after a very long work, Alchemic Extras have been published !

(Please don’t forget to review it !)

Promotional FREE launch ! Alchemic Extras 7 will become a paid app in the future

Alchemic Extras 7 is a separate app that you can download from the Marketplace (click here), coupled with the last version of Alchemic Phone 7 (out now) gives you these new cool features:

– Live Tile
with score, game progress and leaderboard position

– Online Backup
Afraid to lose your 1000+ elements found ? Sleep well, got you covered

– Extended Riddle Hints
Once a day, you can ask a riddle hint for an Element !

Please note these are online services which require a network connection on your phone. Also please read the troubleshooting section for Live Tiles if you have problems with them.

Enjoy and let us know what you think !

[PLEASE NOTE:  if Live Tile doesn’t work when enabling it, try to reboot the phone and re-enable it. (Microsoft fault 🙂 )

If you have problems with Live Tiles please follow this instructions:

* Reboot the phone

* Pin Alchemic Phone 7 to the start screen

* Open Alchemic Extras 7. Disable and re-enable Services with the switch

* Open Alchemic Phone 7. Post your score online, if you haven’t done it already

* Go into World Page. Tap the gift icon and open the Live Tile page. Disable and re-enable Live Tile there with the switch

* After 30 minutes maximum you should see your score on the Live Tile. From now on you can just post your score online.

* Please note Live Tiles update every 3 hours to save battery

 

(Volume slider added !)

Houston … Alchemic Phone 7 has a problem !

Long story short: the new WP7 platform is not very reliable in the backstage. Due to
multiple problems with the marketplace (Microsoft even sent me a handwritten apologies note ! Unbelievable !), while the game is doing fine (it’s the 3rd best rated worldwide !), it’s also falling down in raking, which means it’s losing visibility.

The worst part about this is that, if the game falls down too much, it won’t be feasible for me to keep updating it, adding new elements and generally support it. Please remember it’s free and I do it in my spare time !

In order to help, you can do either of these things:

  • Tell your friends about the game and ask them to install it.  It won’t cost them anything and it will make Alchemic Phone 7 climb the rankings !
  • Have a spare phone ? Or a friend’s phone handy ? 🙂 Install Alchemic Phone 7
  • Share the word online or not, the more people know about the game, the better it will be, naturally
  • Upvote us on Reddit here (click). If you don’t have an account, it takes a second to register (it’s free) and it’s also an interesting website ! Upvoting means pressing the up arrow and expressing preference, but you can also leave a comment.

Thanks a lot for supporting Alchemic Phone 7 !!

 

Helping it means I will be able to spare enough time to add elements and new stuff, like the upcoming version with:

  • Live Tile

  • Online backup

  • Riddle Hints

If you’re interested on what caused the marketplace problems, please email me.

Thanks again.
