Update 2.1 and the Bugs
Belinda here =) In the next few days you can download an update for the Android and the iOS version!
Problems with Android
Unfortunately there are currently problems with the Android version. It can happen that you lose your previous score and saved data. But I'm currently working on a solution so that I can give you back your levels, skill points and cheaty items. Additionally you will get a little extra reward for your patience! If you are interested in what kind of problem exactly there is, you are welcome to read more about it at the end of the article.
What do you have to do when you've lost your old score and want it back
If you lost the old score, you now have Poker Tower Defense installed twice on your machine. Once the old version under "PokerTowerDefense" and once the new version under "Poker TD". In the old version your score is still there.
Send me a screenshot of your levels and cheaty items to my email (contactTesiGames@gmail.com). If you watched ads for extra cheaty items, please send me a screenshot of your statistics.
As soon as I release the next update, you will have the possibility to get your old stuff back via codes. But for this I need to know which level you had in order to send you a matching code. You'll get the codes at the end of January, when i also release Version 2.2.
What is new
- When a mob reaches the end, the tree shakes
- The reward for watching an advertisement is no longer random. You decide what reward you want
- You will get one of each cheaty item every 11 hours! Every second time you get an additional skill point.
- Removed a bug, where sometimes the game stops, when you kill the mobs to fast at the span
- Removed some more smaller bugs (The skill points haven't updated correctly every time you leveled up. On some devices you haven't seen how much an skill upgrade will cost)
- Reduced the maximum armour of the mobs by 50%
- Reduced the health of the boss mobs by 30 %
- The cheaty items now have their own icons.
- Added a new skill: You can get some extra gold at the end of each round
- Some minor visual adjustments
Why are some scores and game data lost?
This is a more technical explanation of what happened. I have released the game with the product name "PokerTowerDefense" for Android. A few weeks later I have released it with the name "Poker TD" for iOS. When I worked on the next update I have changed the product name back to "PokerTowerDefense" for the Android update. But when I tested it on my Android device, the ads aren't working. I guess the problem is with the Ads Framework I'm using. If you are more interested in the Crash Report you can look here. When I change the product name to "Poker TD" the ads are working, but the player score ist lost, because the App uses an other path for saving the data.
So I had to make a decision:
1. I release the game with the product name "PokerTowerDefense". The player will not lose his score, but the Ads don't work and lead to a crash.
2. I release the game with the product name "Poker TD". The player will lose his score, but everything else works fine and I can work on more updates.
I decided on two and created a work around for the lost player data. Because the product name changed, you will still have the old version. So you can send me screenshots of your old data. I am working on the next update and implement the possibility to enter codes. So you can get your experience and skill points back with the next update.
If you have any feedback for the game I'd love to hear it. Also, if you found any bugs, please tell me so I can fix them.
