Lately LuckyWheel has been seeing wonderful growth in a couple of markets as I am able to see on Applyzer.
That was enough reason for my partner Michael and me to give the UI a major pimping and add a couple of bonusses some of users have been wishing for a long time.
- Fixed: Continue Button might not get enabled even though continue is possible
- Fixed: If player finishes round the bonus and score would not be shown correctly
- New: UI Look redesigned
- New: Play now against 1 or 2 AI opponents with random difficulty level
- New: Question language can now be chosen from inside the game
I’m especially proud of the latter two. Inventing a good AI that is a challenge to play against is really hard. And the language selector is a scroll view which you can switch either with two arrow buttons on either side or with your finger.
It’s been submitted to Apple today, let’s see how long they are taking now to approve updates with the 3.0 rush going on.
We have one more thing planned for the update after this on. I want to redo the score screen and show this after each round. So if you hit the bankrupt field you only lose the current round’s points. Also I will to some more animations there. As usual let us know what
UPDATE June 16th
Of course I missed something that Apple could use to reject the update.
Thank you for submitting LuckyWheel and LuckyWheel Lite to the App Store. We’ve reviewed LuckyWheel and LuckyWheel Lite and determined that we cannot post these versions of your iPhone applications to the App Store because of an Apple trademark image. We want to remind you of the importance of following Apple’s posted Guidelines for Using Apple’s Trademarks and Copyrights: <http://www.apple.com/legal/trademark/guidelinesfor3rdparties.html>
As an example of my trademark infringement they attached an image similar to the one above with the new player setup screen. Can you guess what their problem is? It’s the icon symbolizing a computer player! Apple does not like that it looks like an iPhone. We’ll have to think of something more original to symbolize switching between human and computer player.
UPDATE June 26th
After 10 days of waiting (probably Apple being swamped with 3.0 updates) LuckyWheel 1.1.0 finally got approved.
