Yet another game in which the Pocket PC is lagging behind.

Update for Pocket PC?

Post by frquixote » Thu Nov 12, 2009 8:43 am

Sean,

We're coming up on three years since the last Pocket PC update. Still don't have the customization features in the Windows version. Don't know if the AI was ever upgraded to the same level as the Windows version ... but now there is an iPhone version. I keep hoping for enhancements to your three Pocket PC games to bring them up to the same levels as the Windows versions, but no joy ... I'd also like to see VGA support for Pocket PC since I have one of the last PDA-only Pocket PC devices, the HP iPaq 210.

So, are you abandoning the Pocket PC platform or can we look for some enhancements?
