    Many thanks to the Jury.

    Again a bunch of requests implemented.
    Version 0.8.5 now available as beta download in the Marketplace.

    • variable animation speed of hero
    • transitions between levels
    • space optimizations again (for devices with limited internal storage)
    • options dialog: better readability through larger font / higher contrast
    • improved back button handling
    • pause dialog: you can continue where you left off
    • a new retry button is displayed when results are shown
      (to be able to immediately replay a level to get a better star rating)
    • version info / support email address in 'credits' dialog

    Thanks to all testers! :-)

    Further requests / reports very appreciated.
    Also more testers welcome, simply drop me a note at stephan [at] software7 [dot] com!

    0.8.7 is available for download.

    I guess the game is becoming more and more stable, don't get many requests any more.

    - like requested the transitions are now a little bit shorter
    - there is also a transition in the world choose dialog
    - fixed: sometimes it was possible to leave the way immediately after a resume

    Of course still further requests / reports very appreciated.

    Version 0.8.8 is available for download.

    I'm a bit reluctant to send an email for every little update, so at this point a little hint: If it is not shown automatically as an update simply click on the Marketplace link of Mombari again.

    Version 0.8.8 fixes a bug that occurred when the program was deactivated during level loading and then resumed.

    A number of testers are still requesting a d-pad option.
    No test version yet, but here is a first draft how it could look like.

    It's will be of course an option. Default mode will remain tilt control.
    (which I personally prefer).

    Test version 0.8.9 is out:
    Mombari Marketplace Link

    • all levels in world 'Island' were revised visually (enriched the 3D environment with a number of props)
    • as promised: alternatively to the tilt control there is now also a joypad option

    Feedback is always welcome :)

    Thanks for the feedback so far.

    I have provided several updates of Mombari in quick succession in the store.
    In summary, there were the following changes and improvements:
    • level 20 is finally available
    • dialog for the rating of the app
    • fixed: wrong paths of the skeletons, gaps in the target portals
    • revised lighting
    • performance ​​optimizations in the world 'Wood'

    The game is finally getting closer to release candidate state.
    Still very interested in any feedback.

    If you're registered as a tester you can simply press the link below for an update:
    Link to Mombari in the Windows Phone Apps+Games Store

    If your are not registered as tester, simple drop me a note.

    I'm always glad about new tester...

    Since Mombari is almost a release candidate, there is a really short update cycle.

    Mombari 0.9.6 offers:
    - some minor fixes in the 'Island' world
    - some credit infos were added
    - after completion of level 1 of the Island world a rating dialog is shown
    - after playing several successful levels the rating dialog is shown again
    (unless you click on "I've already" rated, in this case a 'Thank you' message
    is displayed and the dialog will not appear again)

    If you're registered as a tester you can simply press the link below for an update:
    Link to Mombari in the Windows Phone Apps+Games Store

    If you want to become a tester, send a message to me and I add you to the beta tester list.

    Relatively close to release (unless an error occurs that requires a dramatically high effort for fixing).
    So I took some time to play a little. The result is a still render.
    Enjoy :)

    Mombari Beta 0.97 is in the store:

    This is more or less the release candidate.

    I've also added an image slide show to Mombari - The Journey is the Reward

    It took a long, long time, but finally is Mombari available for download from the Windows Phone Store:

    Please remember: Should the free version of Mombari receive more than 333 really good ratings, then a fee-based extension pack will be developed with new levels.

    So whether Mombari will be developed further, is entirely in the hands of the users, that's you! :)

    Finally, a big Thank You to all the beta testers. You made Mombari a much better game!

    Launch day is over now.

    Here are the ratings on launch day:
    - 1 two star rating
    - 8 four star ratings
    -10 five star ratings

    That's an average of 4.42. Amazing! :)

    Most of the ratings came from Germany. Only one or two from the USA. Not one rating from the UK. Um...

    Anyway try it and let me know what you think:
