Sorry to report that iOS 8 seems to have broken Pawns, at least on my iPad. I decided it would be best to take it down from the iTunes store. I hope to fix it at some point (and add support for larger screens) but I don’t have an ETA.
A kind reader recently let me know that A Tack! for Mac was crashing under OS X 10.9 “Mavericks”. I have fixed it– go to the A Tack page to download the new version. Still free, still fun. Enjoy!
I forgot to mention here that Pawns was updated back in May. The main change was to remove OpenFeint– I blogged about the reasons for this decision earlier. But I also fixed some graphics glitches that were bothering me. And the keys glow now, making them stand out better on small displays.
I just had a look, and I see that 22 people have now earned the Grandmaster achievement (that is, they have solved all the puzzles.) Congratulations!
(If you solved the puzzles but were not logged into OpenFeint, then you are not included in that total. But congratulations to you too!)
