On December 1st, ChAIR Entertainment released Infinity Blade II. The sequel is billed as a major improvement over the previous version, especially the game’s new combat system and revamped graphics that take advantage of Apple’s A5 processor and Retina Display. However, older devices running Apple’s A4 processorՇsuch as the original iPad and fourth-gen iPod touch—experienced problems within hours after the game launched at the App Store. iOS users flooded the forums at the iTunes store review page with reports of “Keeps crashing” and “Can’t even start it,” warning prospective buyers that the game had a critical bug that causes unexpected crashes accompanied with choppy frame rates.
The developers acknowledged the problems and posted at the Epic online forums that restarting the Apple devices may resolve the issue with the memory constraints. Immediately, Epic vice president Mark Rein responded by saying, “Infinity Blade II issues on iPad and iPod Touch devices, we apologize for any inconvenience you may experience, and are currently working on a fix that will be deployed as quickly as possible.”
This weekend, the v1.0.1 update was issued to iOS users that purchased the game upon Thursday’s launch. The updated version makes some improvements to the game while fixing the bug crashing issues that many users experienced. According to the note posted at the developer forum, it will also fix the slow frame-rates that older generation devices suffered due to older A4 processor hardware.
