  1. This is a disgusting scam, you haven't even bothered to zoom the camera out or make bigger maps, you've just added high resolution graphics.

  2. graphics could be one of the most expensive parts to do in high resolution games...

    ReplyDelete
  3. Thanks for the emails, we really hope you enjoy the game! There's still chance to get the free update if you're quick.

    We'll let you know and update the blog post once all 50 copies are gone.

  5. I didn't realize you had to purchase today. Just thought the contest was today. I won't be getting my iPad for a few weeks. So although I'm a winner I suppose you can pass it on to someone else...

    ReplyDelete
  6. You expect us to re-buy the same game for the ipad? I support good games and developers but this is such a scam... I'm not buying anymore games, and I'm spreading the word, greedy basterds!

    ReplyDelete
  7. We all agree the dude above this comment is a f@ggot, reterd, and a basterd.

  8. @CaptainManiac1: You can purchase Minigore HD in iTunes on your Mac or PC and transfer the game to your iPad when you get it.

  9. I don't have a PayPal account, but I have had Minigore since the beginning, I'm zamzarvideo and (I have two iPods) ZamZar on OpenFeint, is there any way to gift the app if I provide you with my email address? :) I can post my highscores if you want, or you could check my account to verify that I have the game.
    Minigore HD looks great though.

  10. ok look @ the people complaining its the same game etc. etc. they actually went and remade everything from the ground up JUST for the iPad so they can get the most out of it. now your getting the 2DLC's for FREE in the iPad version, your getting more details, better graphics, extra graphics not in the minigore normal and itll continue to get updates just like the minigore we have now.

    sure its based on the same game but every single game currently in the appstore for iPad is doing what MS are doing. their remaking their games and selling it in the iPad store for the same price as MS

    its not like its a conspiracy, go check out the store and you'll see hundreds or thousands of apps doing the same.. even then its like what? $4

    ReplyDelete
  11. Interestingly enough I JUST purchased it for the $4.99 price. I'm doing this even though I don't get my iPad for another month so I can buy it at this reduced price and to promote future updates at a faster speed.

    Kimmo or Timo can you tell me whether or not all characters will be unique by Episode 4?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't care about the iPad or anything else...I just want VERSION 3.7!!!
    I've been waiting all day for this update and they disappointed me!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I know this game is ment for the Ipad but will it run on the iphone 3GS?

    If I don't win this contest I will buy its anyways if only to support mountain sheep.

    And to that annoying anon, if your going to spend 500-800 dollars on the ipad why do you care about spending 5 more dollars on a HD version when you can still play the old one if you want to.

    ReplyDelete
  14. damn apple.. hurry up :(
    if we dont get it today (going by australian time) we have to wait till monday.. hopefully it makes it in by midnight

  16. April 2nd my ass

    ReplyDelete
  17. i don't care about HD apps

    i want 3.7 to be released by today!!!! APPLE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Is there any chance that it will be updated to 3.7 over the weekend???

    ReplyDelete
  19. The update has been rejected

    ReplyDelete
  20. @anon above
    it hasnt. unless MS say it has, it hasnt

    ReplyDelete
  21. april 2nd? dont make me laugh, it's already 3rd and no update for "minigore" not HD. i'll call it mini"shit".

    ReplyDelete
  22. Erm April 2nd was only ever a guess. MS never said it was definately coming out by then, besides the wait for approval depends on apple, MS can't do anything to speed it up. Blame the iPad for the delay of approval

    ReplyDelete
  23. this is the best game on the iPhone Platform, Thank you guys.

    Keep up the good work

    ReplyDelete
  24. Guys, Guys, Guys, please calm down, did anyone say you had to buy the game??? Are they making you??? Please leave them alone, they made an iPad version (just like everyone else) to take advantage of the higher resolution, the stunning screen, and the way more powerful processor, I guarantee you that game will run like butter and it will never ever crash. I can't to play it, (well as soon as I get my iPad).

    FYI: Minigore development won't slow down, because this isn't a different game, for the most part its copying and pasting code (with respect to the different resolution)

    FYI: The Minigore Update and Minigore HD were submitted at the same time. Apple has put alot more focus on the iPad right now (huh huh wonder why, maybe it launched today huh).

    I am also a developer, and I know this from first experience, when I submitted my iPad game, it wen't into review within 2 min, and my iPod / iPhone game is still waiting for review (Apple has put alot more focus on the iPad right now, not without cause though)

    (when you submit a game to apple they have to review it first and if it passes review it will go onto the store)

    So the update will be out, when its out, its not like they've lied to you or anything, if you want to complain to apple about long review times go complain to them (I wholeheartedly endorse that, because I would also like my update to come out soon also)

    Sorry about that, my ranting is over :)

    Can't wait to play the update MS!

    If you would like to check out my games: (not that anyone would after that long post haha)

  25. What The Chosen One was trying to say is:
    The update has been rejected.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Anon above: You're an idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @thechosenone
    please dont advertise your game here go to touch arcade for that

  28. Go to the Unofficial Minigore forums and join at http://minigore.pro-forums.us/

    (This includes Timo and Kimmo)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yah Timo/Timmo please join we have some really good ideas please join

    ReplyDelete
  30. I wasn't advertising, I was proving that I was a developer and there is touch arcade thread (I think there are still some promos, if you hurry up)
    well maybe I was advertising a little bit, but I'm sorry about that and I won't do it again, my bad.

    No the update is not rejected, it'll be out soon, :) sometimes you just have to be patient.:D

    ReplyDelete
  31. yeah dont worry guys the update will come out sooner or later and it hasnt been rejected. Why would it if the 3.7 update is out for the ipad? It's pretty much the same update just with high resolution and graphics

    ReplyDelete
  32. The update has been rejected. I just contacted Apple.

    ReplyDelete
  33. @anony above

    I hope you're lying...
    This update has kept me on the edge of my seat all last week and this weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am happy with Minigore! Nice game and graphics. Too bad i Live in France so i won't get any iPad like everyone here in US..
    Whatever I'm eagerly waiting for the update on the LD minigore!
    What are you doing Apple? there ain't no sex content or something special. The update just adds a few improvements, I can't see the point in taking that much time to approve it...
    Whatever, I'll be waiting!

    ReplyDelete
  35. don't believe anon above

    update will be released by April, 5

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm telling you Apple rejected the update

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  41. I won this contest and this is so confusing, the HD graphics are great but its soooo annoying cause watching it makes it harder for me to play the normal version

    ReplyDelete
  42. @all the complainers

    The update HAS NOT been rejected, I'm now a beta tester and I can CONFIRM this. Apple is just SLOW.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Apple is slow? Like Special Olympics slow?

    ReplyDelete
  44. worse then Special Olympics

    ReplyDelete
  45. Just want to inform all of you. The update is out.

    ReplyDelete
  46. minigore when 3.7 will be upgraded?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thanks for the continuing work on a great game but PLEASE dont give up on the original for the stupid iPad version! And as far as Zombies go, we want to FIGHT them, not play as one of them! I've seen the shots of John battling the undead and it looks amazing. Please give this to us!

    ReplyDelete
  48. @Django
    Dont worry Zombies are planned for Episode 5. If were lucky it will be out before the world ends.

    ReplyDelete
  49. "Upscaled graphics look great, but the controls actually take a hit on the larger form factor of the iPad. The developers have added touch screen controls as an alternative, but we still prefer playing this one on our iPhones."
    -T.A.

    Glad I haven't upgraded.

    ReplyDelete
  50. the controls would be preference really, if you have bigger hands itll be easier to hold
    iPad wasnt made for gaming, hence its large size. its more for entertainment like books, movies, web browsing

    ReplyDelete
  51. Come on apple!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. sorry is 3.7 out or not? cause i cant find it

    ReplyDelete
  53. everyone will probably think this is a dumb question but...... do we have an estimated release date for 4.0 yet?

    I believe either a beta tester or 1 of the devs stated that they were close to completing of the features for 4.0.....

    are we talkin weeks or months ???

    ReplyDelete
  54. dude i was on holidays and after a week there are 2 more posts with lots of comments. how should i underestand whats going on? i just asked whether the stupid update is out or not. can you tell me?

    ReplyDelete
  55. @ ftousougamwto

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. also all my achievements are reset as well... lame ps for in app purchase, just rebuy it for free

    ReplyDelete
  68. All of my recently bought character, kill count, and high scores are all GONE!!!! what in the he'll happened? It took me forever to get to that point!! Openfeint: Giambroni

    ReplyDelete
  69. My OpenFeint is DavidChu. Do you guys think you could store the progress somewhere? Is it possible through OpenFeint?

    ReplyDelete
  70. For me it worked, and I'm really glad about it, beacause I got Sensei :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. The second time I opened it, all my progress is gone, I had all characters!!!!
    THAT'S SHIT :((((((
    Sorry, but I can't believe such a big Bug came into it within this long time!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Sorry, my Openfeint ID is: Cool-Fool

    I'm the Guy above -.-

    ReplyDelete
  73. I've heard that the graphics are still the same on this update for the iphone. The maps still look the same and everything. Is this true?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Great all this time waiting for a bug. Now how long are we going to have to wait for a fix?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  75. This is bull...O can't believe I waited all weekend for a bug!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. no shit! it doesn't save! what a stupid bug

    ReplyDelete
  77. Well this sucks, all my unlocked characters have been relocked and the worse thing is my kill count got reset as well. Timo and Kimmo, you guys probably have a lot of pissed off people to pacify now.

    ReplyDelete
  78. It's true - the second time you play (after exiting the game), your unlocked characters are now locked. Score is reset. And OpenFeint doesn't seem to be connecting.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Also it doesn't save after that either.

    ReplyDelete
  80. oh thank god i looked at this before i played the update :P
