OddPlanet, a Limbo- and Oddworld-inspired application that became available earlier this month, has just received an update adding iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and iPad optimization. In addition, a small number of changes have also been made to the first levels of the app, meaning players should now benefit from a more seamless and fluid gaming experience. As outlined in the app's release notes, here's what users can expect from OddPlanet:
OddPlanet is a side-scrolling adventure game inspired by Limbo and Oddworld. You will guide a lone little girl through the hostile environments of an alien planet and help her survive. She will share her feelings and thoughts. Prepare to experience atmospheric sounds, music in stereo and meet fascinating creatures in this beautiful, hand-painted world.In version 1.2 of the app, however, developer Piotr Krol has added performance improvements for the game when running on an iPhone 4, and has improved the application's mechanics. Furthermore, OddPlanet is now optimized for the iPhone 5 and the iPad, meaning the game will run on both iDevices without displaying those annoying black bars at the side of the screen. At the moment, OddPlanet is available to download in the App Store for $0.99. Take a look at the recently updated application now, or check out the below video trailer.
