I think that it isn't concidence that Dreamfall Chapters and The Longest Journey iOS released at the same time. Funcom and RTG are still in good relations. Its great, just great!

I'm totally not into mobile gaming but would buy Android version if it will be released eventually, just for the collection :)

I am so incredibly excited about this. I can't wait for this to be released here in the UK - I even tried changing Apple Stores to see if I could sneakily purchase the current version, but no luck. I would absolutely love to have this on my iPad because I haven't been able to make TLJ work on my Mac at all and i miss this game so much.

All I wanna know is why IOS devices..this seems to be the new fad these days. They did this for Tomb Raider 1 also but that actually got remastered for real..this doesn't look like it was really touched.

The why is simple: money. It is a huge, unexplored market.

Statistics show (or that is what I read at least) that the profits from the Apple store are many times greater than from Google's store, not to mention that in the latter you have to test and optimize the game for a huge variety of devices.

I would like an android version as well. But if they started 4 years ago, Apple was quite ahead of the rest of the tablet market, I think. I don't think Funcom will go ahead and make an android version unless they earn a lot of money on the iOS one.. Although I don't know the programming differences between the two OS's, so I don't know how much work (=money) it will take for them. Because I do feel that Funcom will need "proof of profit" before doing anything more.

Hoo boy! I've pushed it up to my Apple TV. The Guardian's wang in all its intended glory!..

It's not as big as I remember.

Excellent wandrew! So, are there any noticeable differences in the iOS version?

Not really, just what we've seen in the AA Patch. Font for subtitles is more vanilla, but the diary font is the same. Oh, and Ragnar's intro and outro, do course.

Backgrounds look good on my TV, though.

Have to finish the game first! Rather nasty bug with the rubber ducky. Appears to stay inflated but isn't really. Have emailed Funcom, May have to start over. *sigh*

As if that puzzle wasn't hard enough already.

Well, that depends on how they did it. If they just updated the engine to run with OpenGL ES, and kept the interface code is still cleanly separated, then it wouldn't be a huge problem to get it running on Android as well. But getting it running well on all major brands? That'd probably cost more.

I have it (I'm from Australia) and it looks great and plays well but unfortunately there is a game breaking bug. :(

 

When April first travels to Arcadia the conversation with the Priest of the Balance doesn't work. There are only 3 of the 5 conversation options shown, and the one you need to choose isn't one of the first 3. There are two little diamond things at the bottom of the screen I assume are meant to switch you to more coversations options but nothing happens when I click. I've reported it to Funcom though their help form, but got a "TSW" auto-response.  It also looks like I'm not the only one who has the issue.

 

Hopefully they'll fix it soon.  I've had a few other little issues which I've reported as well, but that's the big one.

The diamonds indicate you can swipe across. Alternatively, you can eliminate the options one by one, clearing room for the later options.
