iPad vs. Simulator

I still don’t have my iPad yet (accidentally sent it to work instead of home) but a friend came over on Sunday with his shiny new iPad. We tried Castle Tiles on it and it was a blast! But we also discovered a few differences between the actual iPad device and the simulator:

  • the iPad can handle up to 11 touches at once!
  • it’s about 66% the size of the simulator on my computer monitor
  • it’s a lot faster than the simulator
  • the transparency trick I did to render the background doesn’t work!

So if you’ve purchased Castle Tiles already, you’ll see a black background for now. But not to fear, I’ve already fixed it and submitted an update, which you’ll get for free whenever Apple approves it. As a bonus, I’ve tweaked the AI and added alliances so you can play in teams!
