Yeah, an update!

I just released version 0.9.9 a second ago, recent changes are:

- Added a Calibrating-Function, this should fix the bug that it's not woring on the moto xoom, if it still doesn't work, please sent an e-mail asap!
- Added an option with which you can align the buttons on the left or right side of the screen -> improving one-hand playing
- Fixed the character-selection bug on HTC Hero (yes you can stop giving bad ratings because of that now)
- Added a new Character!

and we even made the cat unlockable for the free version!

Enjoy! I could upload some screenshots of the new character now but the screen-capture function of my phone somehow bugs around, I'll probably add some of those later! Oh and it's a sheep, btw.

Future Updates.

As you might have seen, piggy drop doesn't have a 1.x.x version number. That's because it's not finished yet. There are still a lot of features that we will add in the up coming weeks.

1. Some new gameplay possibilities. You don't have to use those but if you do, you might get a better score.
2. Improved graphics.
3. Sounds.
And we will add new game modes from time to time. Like "classic" or "disco".


Piggydrop does have an online highscore! We added scoreloop support as a easy to use and decent leaderboard. Try to get to the top of the list!

This night piggydrop was updatet to version We added a mole for the full version and some bug fixes, graphic improvements and new highscore layout for both, ad-supported and full game.

Screen of the new PowerUP

A simple red arrow pointing upwards, nothing special atall.

Improved the platform shrinking and extending powerUps

I updated those two powerUps, because it had almost no effect atall in the last version, I also added some colorfull glowing effect to those platforms
(click to enlarge!)

Green PowerUp: Increases the distance between the platforms

Red PowerUpDown: Shrinks the holes

Other things I did: Imrpoved performance, doesn't allocate that much memory anymore, hope it works better on some weaker devices now

Hint to unlock characters

I added a tiny note about how to unlock the characters
I'll also show a screenshot of those hints here, so you won't have to wait until the next update to see them:
