What's New in Version 2.10
oops, fixed iPhone rendering bug
Maybe it's only my iPad, but there's a... Game breaking glitch. I'm very new to the series, but I had heard multiple rave reviews, especially for the Mac. I opened the app, heard the little whoosh, but then, when it was supposed to show the quote, it only showed it for about half a second, so not even a reader of the highest calibre could read the text in that time. Not game breaking so far. I decided new game would be the best option, and I was pretty excited! Then, as I went to pick easy mode, the option highlighted, but nothing happened. I tapped back, but that was in vain. Doing so crashed it, and I was pretty upset. I, not being one to give up easily, bravely opened the app again, but alas, I found the same result. I proceeded to try each difficulty (results hardly varying), and each of the other options. Those other options had a slightly strange affect on the main menu. When I had attempted to select 'info', I did succeed, however, when I chose yet another option, the page that tapping info brought up was identical. Of course, I tested this some more, and I got the same results. I'd LOVE to play this game, and I'm sure this is a very enjoyable and immersive experience. I look forward to the day I can play this game!
Perfect Port Just a Few Changes
This is definitely the Marathon I remember playing on my old Macintosh. The port is great but the textures on the weapons should be changed when buying the HD version. The walls and liquids look great but the weapons should be improved. The other thing is there needs to be the ability to change frame rates. 60fps is way too fast. Maybe I just had a super slow computer but back in the day the game played at a comfortable speed. On the iPad all movements seem rushed and it's hard at times to keep up with your movements. Other than that perfect port.
Great game but will NOT work on iPhone 6 plus.
I grew up loving this series on PC and when I saw it in the App Store I was thrilled.
On my iPhone 5 it worked perfectly, no bugs or glitches that I could find and gameplay was excellent. However when I upgraded to an iPhone 6 plus the game loads, and after selecting the difficulty the first level begins loading and immediately goes back to the difficulty setting screen before the app crashes and sends me back to my phone's home screen.
Great game but there are some bugs to be worked out.
