Happy 8th Birthday BATTLE BEARS - Important iOS 11 news

SkyVu_BenSkyVu_Ben CEO Posts: 261 SkyVu Employee
8 years ago, we launched our first game on the App Store. It was called BATTLE BEARS and was later titled BATTLE BEARS ZOMBIES (BBZ). Little did any of us know what an incredible journey would follow. To celebrate we've made all the BB TRILOGY GAMES (BB-1, BB-0, BBZ) all free on iOS this week. Grab them while you can because this next paragraph:

IMPORTANT NOTE: Because of iOS 11 no longer supporting 32-bit apps, BB-1, BB-0, and BBZ will not run and will not be shown on the iOS 11 App Store. This is a strict policy handed down by Apple, we apologize for this and will revamp the games for iOS 11 if we are able to step away from BBG/BBO to do so. Because BBZ has a special place being our very first BB game, we've been trying to get BB ZOMBIES updated for iOS 11 with a little surprise. I'll have more details if our coder is able to work their magic on BBZ's ancient code.

PS: I love the updated forum icon! The 8 YEARS looks great with Oliver and it happens to be his favorite number. Thanks to those who worked on it.

    perhaps BBZ (as long as the other 2) can have updated graphics due to the advancements of mobile technology?

    The old 3D assets seem to hold up pretty well on iPhone 6s and 7. Maybe a stretch for the newer iPads. So we'll try but I'd rather focus art efforts on BBG/BBO.

    Wow... 8 years already. A long journey, but hopefully it won't end anytime soon.

    Whatever you will do, I hope to still be able to play these gems if forced to update the iOS.

    I'm liking the news. Thanks daddy Ben.

    Also I have a question. When will they get on android. I need these old relics on my phone.

    @SkyVu_Ben well one thing you have to do is remove openfeint from BBZ and BB-1 since it's not functional anymore, i recommend replacing it with a button that links to either the forums or the wiki

    The team just showed me BBZ running on Android! Still needs QA but it's looking more likely we'll be able to get this gem to Google Play soon. For iOS users that download the app for free, they'll just get the update for free when we make it work for iOS 11.

    Great to know it worked! May it work the same for the other titles of the trilogy as well!

    We're just about done with upgrading BB ZOMBIES code to 64-bit for iOS 11 and putting the final touches on AR Zombie Survival mode. We're trying to get Apple to feature it sometime in October as we think BBZ is perfect for Halloween. Here's the updated main menu and the mode select menu where I added a special note for all of you.
