Don’t wait!

Now the wait is over, the Fish! 1.2.2 update is out and the AppleTV version is waiting for approval I can keep everyone up to date on what else we’re doing 🙂

Firstly, time to reiterate our policy on pricing and sales. Having realised that paid apps are probably our only chance of actually paying the bills, we decided some time ago that we’d focus on them and stick with a “No sales” policy.
The philosophy behind this policy is that we don’t want to mess our players around with variable prices for games and set a reasonable price for them.
So there’s no point waiting until one of our games goes on sale. If you want to play it, buy it now. It won’t get any cheaper and if they’re not selling early on, we can’t afford to update them and may even have to drop them entirely.

 

What’s next for Fish! ?

The next big update will be in the new year. We’re going to be adding quite a bit more cool stuff in this update. Now I’ve got the UI rewrite out of the way, we can focus more on content. There’s going to be more classic Flick Fishing features returning too!

Also, I’m dabbling with the Mac version of Fish! If you’ve got the macOS version of Fast Fishing from the Mac App Store, drop us a line as we’d love to set you up with a free copy once it’s up and running as a thank you for your support.

 

Download Fish! Now from the App Store! (Fish! is Universal Purchase, so buying the iOS version also gets you the Apple TV version)

If you do want to try a fun little free game of ours by the way, we do have SpinnYwings on the App Store for you to play. Give it a go!

APPLE TV!!!

Phew! After a month in crunch mode, I’ve finally submitted Any Landing as the third of our games for the new Apple TV App Store. SlotZ Racer 2 and Tiny TrackZ are both on there already, although thanks to the somewhat soft launch of the App Store on the Apple TV you have to manually search for them to find them.

Please, Please, Please, do the search for Tiny TrackZ, SlotZ Racer (and when it’s released) Any Landing and buy them on the Apple TV as without the feature visibility we’re struggling with them being practically invisible on the store.

The good news is, if you’ve already bought one of our games on iPhone, iPad or even iPod Touch, we’re making all our Apple TV games what Apple calls Universal Purchase. This means that the tvOS and iOS versions of the game are covered by the same purchase. So for instance, if you’ve bought Tiny TrackZ on the iPhone, you already own it on Apple TV and just need to download it.

Even better, we’re implanting iCloud synchronisation between the iOS and tvOS versions, so you can carry on playing your saved games from the iPhone (or iPad etc.) on your Apple TV. We’ve got this in SlotZ Racer and Any Landing already and the next update to the iOS version of Tiny TrackZ will cover that too!

We’re also big fans of the MFi Game Controller so all our Apple TV games support them. That means SlotZ Racer 2 can now be played in 4 player mode with your friends sat around your TV! (great fun for parties!)

The update to SlotZ Racer on iOS got a little delayed by the sudden appearance of Apple TV developer kits, but it’s benefitted as we’ve realised we can use the uprated graphics we did for the Apple TV version on the iOS version too for the new iPhones and iPads, so that’ll be out soon too!
