Droid Odyssey… early results from the front line

November 23, 2010 Leave a comment

So it’s been two days since we launched the BETA version to the market, and the response has been fantastic.

So far we’re tracking at around 7,000 downloads, and our current average rating is steady at 4.5 stars.

Many people have volunteered both feature requests and bug reports, as well as many many positive comments for which we are all very grateful.  We are working hard to resolve the issues reported and plan to do regular updates to the BETA until all the major issues are ironed out.

Meanwhile we are also straining our brains to create an amazing set of puzzles for the levels to be included in the full version.

Thanks to all the people who have downloaded so far, and particularly to those who have posted comments on the Market and provided direct feedback from within the app.  Rest assured we are listening!

Stay tuned for more updates on the official release date of the full version.

Project Renamed… Droid Odyssey!

September 24, 2010 Leave a comment

It has recently come to our attention that the name “Robot Odyssey” is already attributed to an old Apple (and PC) game published in the mid-80s:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot_Odyssey

Although our choice of this name was completely coincidental (honestly!), we don’t want to create any confusion in the market.  From all reports the original Robot Odyssey was (is) a fantastic game and we wouldn’t want to be seen to be trying to trade on their good name.

So from here on, our little game will be called Droid Odyssey!

Fortunately we caught this just in time and can easily rebadge the game.
