Retro Art Studio 1.3.0 for iOS Released – New Features

Retro Art Studio has just received it’s latest milestone for iOS. This release was a quick release after 1.2.0 to address some additional customer feedback.

Most importantly, our top requested feature was a way to purchase the app. It seems Retro Art Studio is a hit with young ones and others alike, so to stop those small hands from accidentally clicking on ads, they can now be disabled via in app purchase. We also added a way to blend colors together, by clicking on two different colors on the color bar. (Click Red then Green to get a gradient between the two).

Also a request on iPhone was the ability to have larger LED / Pixels for the smaller device. Now on all devices you can select the size of the LED / Pixel via a configuration menu.

We removed the ‘undo’ button as well to make room for the configuration, also it was not really necessary as we have a nice eraser that’s ready to use.

Thank you so much for all your feedback, and we hope you enjoy playing our games.

Retro Art Studio 1.2.0 for iOS Released

Retro Art Studio 1.2.0 has been released on the Apple App Store. This includes a whole bunch of fun things, mainly new colors! Every color now has a gradient, so you can get different shades of each color, we we went from 8-64 colors! That should unleash some more creativity from our users.

Full iPad Retina support! All the graphics have been redone to support the Retina in full resolution, we even prettied up some of the graphics for all devices. There are more dots on the Led Brite game as well.

We also fixed Facebook integration, so now it will post to your photo album (if you are logged into Facebook). Your posts are just for your wall, not ours. However we have added a link to the Facebook page for Retro Art Studio ‘Retro Art Studio Community’, where you can like us and please upload any work you’d like to share! We’d love to see what you’re able to make.

Retro Art Studio for iOS is a Free application replicating classic art toys, including Etch-A-Sketch ™ and Lite Brite ™, we also have a 8-bit pixel painting program to make cool pixel art. People seem to be using it for creative ways as well such as cross stitching pattern making as well as quilt designs. We love the creativity of our users.

If you have any ideas, issues, or suggestions please use our support page on the website, we’ll get back to you asap.

Looking forward to seeing some of your work!

Welcome to the New Year – 2012

Well the New Year is here. This year we plan on working hard to build up our brand and get more product out the door. We have some exciting projects in progress, we’re looking forward to working with some 3rd parties, and of course we will be updating our existing applications with new features.

A wrap up of last year:

March – Mojo Video Poker for Mac, the app has remained in the top 10 in Casino games on OSX since it’s release.
October – Mojo Video Poker HD for iPad.
December – Retro Art Studio for iPad.

We continuously updated our products throughout the year adding functionality and fixing issues. We released a total of 10 updates across all our apps.

We prototyped in house and for 3rd parties over 30 games and apps in 2011. Some of these ideas will be realized in 2012 as new releases, either by us or by a 3rd party publishing company. We have a lot of exciting projects lying around, and now we have to filter some out to release in 2012.

Our outlook:
We have a lot of sticks in the fire this year, and now we’re looking to move some projects ahead. We hope to pick up some new contacts and partnerships along the way. This is what we currently have planned.

  1. Mojo Video Poker (OSX/iPAD) update, this will bring new features to both applications, including auto-hold for all games. This is currently in testing.
  2. WJ – (iOS/OSX) This is a new application that has been in development for 9 months. We are getting close to the polishing stage. We are very excited for this release and hope we can get it to the finish line before end of Q1.
  3. Retro Art Studio (All) this is an update to Retro Art Studio our free to play retro art game collection. We are expanding our platforms and looking at touching new platforms we haven’t yet delivered to. This is hopefully in line for release in Feb / March. We also plan on a latter release adding new themes and art programs to the mix
  4. BS – (iOS/OSX) This is a new puzzle game we are currently developing. We hope to find the time to build up some levels to make it interesting and get it to users this year.
  5. Episode 9 – (iOS) This is a very large title we hope to do this year. This is bringing to life a popular series of cartoons we published years ago. We plan to make an interactive game / story that will take players through the adventures of our fearless hero.
  6. Finance Apps – (iOS/TBD) A collection of apps to manage different aspects of finances. A collection of tools we’ve had internally we’ve found useful over the years.

If we have time projects, these are ones we’ve started and would love to work more on.

  1. GORB – (iOS) The gravity based action puzzle
  2. The Adventurers – (iOS) A retro-ish point and click adventure
  3. TnP – (iOS/Other) A collection of musical toys for children
  4. Color With Me – (iOS/Other) A coloring program for children
  5. Money Match Extreme – (All) A revisit to our original mobile title, Money Match Advance. An fast action thinking puzzler. This is a labour of love an hope one day to bring it back.
  6. Many Many more…

That doesn’t touch on our 3rd party partnerships… All in all it’s going to be a busy year! We can’t promise it all, but we hope we’ll be bringing everyone some great apps this year.

Mojo Video Poker 1.1.1 Released

As much as we try to get every bug we can, sometimes the little stinkers slip through. An in the case of version 1.1.0 we had a big one sneak through. Due to a change last minute with the new cards we caused a memory problem on earlier iPods and iPhones. This would cause the game to crash on Devices pre 3gs iPhone and 3rd Gen iPod Touch. But with some excellent reports from users, and a couple crash logs we were able to find and fix the issue.

Now on our support page we added an option to attach a file, if you do have a crash you can send in the crash logs, which helps us get to the problem fast.

So if you have not updated, or had an issue please update to 1.1.1 now, it has other fixes in terms of memory usage which will improve the game on all devices. If you find any issues, or have any requests please feel free to submit them to us on our Support page!

As always, if you enjoy the game please take a moment to rate it, it helps us get more exposure and that helps us to find time to add more features.
