Any plans to bring us PocketPC users up to version 4?

I'll do an update on the Pocket PC version when I've got the lobbies working in Slay, Conquest and The General. Promise!

Hey it's okay. :)

No, as far as I can remember I just tweaked the Undo system. The maps are all still the same though.

Update for Pocket PC??

Post by frquixote » Thu Nov 12, 2009 8:34 am

Any idea when we're going to see an update for the Pocket PC? You promised one after you got the Internet lobbies working.

I'd like to add the improvements I've made to the game in the iPhone version to the Windows and Pocket PC versions. Pocket PC has moved on a bit since the last versions I did so I'll need to spend some time getting used to the latest tools etc... for that.

iPhone update

Post by SpiraX » Tue Aug 31, 2010 1:26 pm

Hi Sean,
First off I would like to thank-you for making the game Slay. I bought this back in the nineties for the Pocket PC and haven't been able to stop playing since then. I must add great work as it was the best money I have ever spent. At times I find myself playing when I shouldn't!! There is always time for a quick battle.

I am upgrading to the iPhone 4 and one of the reasons that sold the iPhone for me is that fact that slay (and of course Conquest :D ) was available. I am trying to find the version history for the iPhone but seem to have missed it. I was wondering if you could put it on your site with the PC & Pocket PC history?s (unless I missed it looking through the apple sites.)

The main thing I am looking for is an update to add your own themes, custom islands and multiplayer. I have been waiting patiently watching the PC version get all the glory 8) . Can you confirm that you will be adding these features into the iPhone game (Even the Windows Mobile version :D ). I think the main one that I couldn't live without would be the custom themes as it adds to the overall longevity for me in the game. (I must admit I have also been dying for a custom map option in the game for awhile now). I did read that you were looking at adding the Multiplayer but just wanted to ask again.

Oh and thanks again for the great customer service it?s too few and far between these days.

<I can't believe that this is the longest I have ever played a game! At least once a week since the nineties.. that's over ten years of service (Closer to 15) and still loving it!!>

It would be great to get the Windows Mobile version updated - even just the graphics.

It's really hard to play now on my HTC with capacitive screen.

Would happily pay again for this!

Cheers - Adam.
