App likely submitted today/tomorrow for potential release next week.

Gobang Social 1.7 Changes

Once again we’re back with another update! This version has quite a few fixes and provides an alternative way to login to the game and challenge your friends.

NEW: You can now login to the game using your email address instead of Facebook. Now you can login even if you don’t have a Facebook account!

NEW: Invite your friends by email address. Whether you’ve logged in via email or Facebook, you can now invite your friends to play using their email address.

NEW: You can now browse a list of active random opponents to play. You can use the list to find a random opponent who you have not previously played before.

IMPROVED: The bomb placement crosshair also highlights existing bombs on the grid to make it easier to see where your bomb will go.

IMPROVED: Sending chat messages is now much faster and reliable.

IMPROVED: Match download time. Some people have many matches which took a while to download. We’ve taken steps to improve this in addition to all other interactions between client and server.

IMPROVED: We’ve tweaked the App Store icon to be more visually appealing.

V 1.7 now live. So you don’t have to use Facebook and can connect for games by email.
Plus lots of other improvements.

We are really trying to polish the whole turn based game using a server thing because the mechanics for these elements in Gobang Social will be carried forward into our other turn based games now under development. For this reason Gobang Social 1.8 is under development and brings a whole pile of further improvements. Many based on your feedback.
