Default Awesome work

Awesome rendition of classic game!
I love playing it on my Galaxy Note Pro.
There have been many good suggestions for improvement, but NO COMPLAINTS from me.
I think a "Help" menu or FAQ file might be helpful.
I am having a little trouble figuring out how to resupply..
Thanks for a great game! Whiners just need to look at what else is out there for tablets.
Answer-not much with this level of graphics.
Have fun!

Latest update with sim mode is pretty good. It would still be nice to have a clock displayed, and probably sunrise and sunset times available for reference. I'd still like to have a better sense of convoy contact information while submerged. Sometimes a dive could pick up a convoy sound when visual contact is lost. Thanks for developing this game!

Version 1.2.1 is now released for Android and iOS.
Changes:
* Added 16x time scale.
* Added encounter timer.
* Made Time Scale buttons larger.
* Added notification on depth charges splashes.
* Sim mode: Start further from Convoy.
* Sim mode: Hide notifications that you shouldn’t know (torpedo/sub/periscope spotted).
* Torpedoes don’t always get spotted by enemy (scales with difficulty).
* Added Custom game mode (no leaderboards).

Happy hunting!

-Scott

Bought it for my Nexus 10 and played it. Nice going! Finished my first war patrol on easy with a meager 250K ton sunk. I did take down the Repulse and Renown for what its worth

On to more difficult missions...

No plans at the moment. Every time I look into making one, I decide that I'd much rather spend my time adding features to the full game than making a demo version.

Speaking of new features...

Version 1.3.4 is now available in all markets.

The biggest change is a redesigned War Patrol mode:
  1. Removed 30-day time limit
  2. Slowed time passage
  3. Added fuel gauge/consumption. Fuel consumed while moving; 10% consumption while stationary.
  4. Resupply also refuels (25% of capacity).
  5. Fuel range radius displayed as red ring on map.
  6. Warn player when fuel is below range to base + 10%.
  7. Reduced chance (10%) of convoy encounter when stationary.
  8. Return to base = patrol end.
  9. Run out of fuel = Roll for rescue, with better odds the closer you are to base.
  10. When inside a "convoy spotted" circle, encounter comes much more quickly.
  11. When inside a "convoy spotted" circle, guaranteed larger convoy and better "whale" odds.

Also:
  • Escorts can no longer shell you if you are hidden behind a transport.
  • Checks to see if you actually made the leaderboard before asking if you want to post high score.
  • Added loading screen.
  • Versioned leaderboards (1.3.4 has its own boards).
  • Tightened up all ship bounding boxes to reduce “hovering fires” effect.

How did you get it on your Kindle? I have a Fire HD 7", I would like to try the game on it.

Well, guess what? I turned on my Kindle Fire HDX 7", went to Amazon and yeah, the game is available and it seems to work great. I wonder why the Kindle is not listed as a platform on the Crash Dive website? I see there is a link to Amazon, but the page lists "Android" as the OS....

Just because Kindle isn't a separate platform; it's an Android device, but with an Amazon-specific front-end. So if you were to bypass the Amazon AppStore and install any Android app's APK, it would work just like any other device.

Do most people not consider Kindle to be Android? If that's the perception, then you're right, I should list it as a platform.

Thanks,

-Scott
