Just a quick update. Chris has ported Shanghai to Android, so if you’ve got an Android phone please give it a spin. Here’s the link: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-29/?action=preview&uid=33962

If you’ve played the Web version of Shanghai, you probably would have noticed that the resolution is weird! Well the story behind it is that we realized early on we were making a puzzle game and we were having 2 parts to the action; The Bund and the Puzzle Grid.

It helped emphasize the jam theme, since the grid was beneath the surface of the city… like your actions. But most of all, it just worked so much better as a mobile game. The dragging gameplay is a lot like Flow, a great puzzle game on mobile devices. Shanghai has similar line drawing on a grid, so we naturally designed for the smartphone.

Now we finally have our smartphone port available, so even if you’ve played Shanghai before… try again :) It also doesn’t seem to experience the city-not-loading bug which has plagued random players since submission.

Feedback is much appreciated, thanks!
