Both devices have a new taller screen (or wider in the case of how most games are played on the device).
As Nitrome are making games for iOS we would want to support these devices and so we follow this news closely.
While we are a little apprehensive with the variety of screen resolutions that are starting to appear within the iOS ecosystem we are happy to say that this news was fairly expected and that it will not cause any considerable impact to the development of Icebreaker – a Viking Voyage. We would also say that we will relish having our game playable on the shiny new devices and can’t wait to give them a go.
We will have a proper update on just how it affects the iPhone and Ipod versions of Icebreaker coming your way soon!
