Hey everyone, we’ve released Osmos version 2.2 on iOS! Here are the details:
(note: for those of you on other platforms, you can see what we’re up to here.)
iPhone 5 support
Osmos now takes full advantage of the iPhone/iPod 5’s bigger screen! More motes, more zen.
Game progress saved in iCloud
Do you play Osmos on multiple devices, or have you migrated to a new phone or tablet? Well, your progress is now seamlessly propagated from device to device via the magic of the cloud! (Note: if you have a device with progress you want to propagate, you need to run Osmos 2.2 on it at least once to get that progress into the cloud.)
iPad – iPhone interplay
iPad players can now send Game Center invitations to iPhone players, and vice versa. We’ve also merged achievements and progress across the two versions.
iOS 6 support + Facebook integration
You can now give a multiplayer shout-out on your Facebook wall in addition to the existing Tweet button. We’ve added some other secret voodoo iOS 6 support under the hood as well.
We’ve added a simple in-game news system that’ll allow us to let folks know about fun multiplayer events, tips and tricks, interesting news, etc.
Steps towards multiplayer rankings
This is another “under the hood” feature. Nothing to show yet, but we’re now gathering all multiplayer session data on our server, which will allow us to authenticate tournament games, rank players in a more interesting fashion, etc. More to come on this topic in the future…
(Oh, and we’d greatly appreciate if you “refreshed” your review on the App Store. Reviews reset on every update, and we work hard on these things! :))
Thanks and happy Osmoting!
