Games finishing too early on IPAD running IOS 5
« on: February 21, 2012, 06:38:31 AM »
Hi,

I have noticed on the higher levels >20 ish the game finishes before all the planets are conquered.  Sometimes this can be as low as 40% not conquered

It was very noticeable on level 21 - Event Horizon - in the PC version you build up through the planets and then get a back lash which you need to have built up a large colony to survive - it is quite trickey

The IPAD version completed at the point when I should have gotten the back lash, i.e. I had just gotten to the planet that triggers the backlash when I was informed I had completed the level

This is happening on all of the later level and is a little disappointing as I have whizzed through the levels in a matter of minutes with very little challenge,

Please can you investigate.  I have the latest version (i.e. ITunes says there are no outstanding updates) and an IPAD 2 running IOS 5

regards

Steve

Only some of the levels require you to take over all the asteroids.

Check the level goals.

AFAIK all the levels end correctly (but we'll double check if you're definitely not seeing that).

agree, however ever level from 19 onwards is doing this for me.

In particular level 21 as I mention in my original post - the whole point here is that you get 2/3 through it and then there is supposed backlash with a swarm of hundreds come back at you (as in the original PC game) - it even refers to it in the help.

The swarm isnt happening as the game finishes pretty much on the point where the swarm is meant to start.  i.e. you build every thing up go to the astroide in the upper left corner and then it says you have conquered

I wonder if there are multiple trigger points (i.e. to signify something new is to happen) during a game that the first trigger is causing it to finish early

Is this in challenging or relaxed mode? And is it the normal campaign? (not DMM)

Have you tried:
   -Rebooting your ipad?
   -Replaying a level that works properly (see if it still does)

hi

its challenging mode on normal campaign

I did a hard reset and re did level 21.  This time I did get the message that there was a retailliation (or something similar i cant remember), and the huge wave of enemies came onto the asteroid - only problem was after about 10 seconds the game was over, but i think this was because i had over 1000 seedlings and therefore they mopped up the enemy seedlings very quickly

thanks

Steve
