It will now keep your best score for 24 hours only, except if it is 500.000 points or higher. We may switch to Openfeint for Android one day, as we did on the iPhone version.

On 18 March iPhone developers got an email from Apple titled “Now accepting iPad Apps”. That was a provocation to us since the device was only available in the USA. Anyway the beta SDK shipped with an iPad simulator and our lead designer Julien began making textures for a coming HD version of our best-selling product Space Buster.

My friend Michel was back from a trip in Hong Kong and told we he got one device there. The game was running well on the simulator so I sent him beta binaries by email using ad hoc distribution. It failed to launch on the device and I didn’t catch any clues about why it won’t. I was jealous and frustrated so on 21 April we decided to buy one device on eBay: 16 GB wi-fi priced 650 €.

While I was debugging I figured out there was some kind of memory overflow after loading half of the textures. I had to compress them using PowerVR Texture Compression at 2BPP resulting in a 4 times lighter memory footprint with reasonable quality loss. What’s great about PVRTC is the textures get stored in compressed format on memory and the GPU does natively decompress them on the fly.

We wanted to ship many levels so we included all the original levels from Space Buster (166) then Julien designed 50 new stages.

The iPad then became available outside the USA on 28 May and the game went on sell 3 weeks later.

Last week we pushed the first update (v1.2) including 8 more levels for free and premium users to celebrate the first 300.000 free downloads.
