Haven’t had a minute to scratch myself lately. That’s because we’ve been hard at work preparing to exhibit at PAX this weekend. We’re showing Square Off on Windows Phone and OUYA, but most excitingly we’re unveiling Square Heroes to the public for the first time! Check out the press release for more info.

The 1.4 update for Square Off is now live on the marketplace and is available for both the paid and FREE versions of the game. The update has increased the performance of the game significantly and also added support for fast resume. We have another update in the works already with a much requested feature, but it is still early days and I would prefer to keep it a surprise Thank you all for your marketplace reviews which have been overwhelmingly positive (click here to see reviews and comments from our many users around the world).

Read it here. No, really do, it’s a great review. The support that Hyde13 has shown us in the last month has been outstanding. First he posted about initial press release here. Then he sniffed out the news that we were about to release and posted about it here, with multiple updates. Not long after we released, he featured us in a piece about how some non-Xbox Live enabled WP7 titles were better than some that are Xbox Live enabled (read: ours is!). And finally he posted the wonderful review linked at the top of this post. Thanks WP7Connect!
You can read the full review here. I recommend you do as it’s very thorough, but also fair. Paul also gave us some extremely valuable pre-release feedback that has led to significant improvements in the game. He raised things like improved ease of bomb throwing, more varied enemy colours and general improvements in the controls (including a critical bug). Much appreciated. We posted the video review that goes with this review before, but here it is again:
The original post contains a short review which can be read here. Thanks M. Daou for doing the review. One little correction though: it’s a port of a Xbox Live Indie game (not Arcade). Also, you can hold your right thumb down if it gets tired doing the Rocket Riot style shooting for every bullet
I recommend reading the full review here. Thanks to Saijo George of BestWP7Games.com and 1800PocketPC.com for putting in the effort to do the thorough review including a long video!
Here it is… great review. Thanks to Paul Avecedo of WPCentral!. They will have a full text review live soon.
Get your hands on the product, hot off the press – just clicky here (requires Zune install). We’re all really excited to see how it goes on the marketplace and we appreciate everyone’s support so far. If you have a WP7 device, get it, play it and please take a minute to leave a review.
