CorsixTH for Android v0.3.1 – What’s new

I just realised that I haven’t made a post about the changes in the 0.3.x versions of CorsixTH for Android. There’s been quite a few things that I’ve been working on since the feedback received from 0.2.2, and I’ve still got a to-do list full of things to work on over the next few weeks. (more…)

New test version available

Over the past month, this project has had a lot of attention for which I’m very grateful. My e-mail inbox has been filled with some fantastic comments and constructive criticism which I’m slowly working my way through, and there’s still comments on this blog and on GitHub which I haven’t got round to addressing yet. I’m starting to collect all the suggestions and bug reports to try to work out the best order to tackle them, but if you think I’ve missed something then I’d love to hear it. The GitHub issue tracker is the best place to put these as I can manage them a bit better.

New version

I’ve prepared a new test version in which I’ve tried to focus mainly on stability and performance improvements. I’ve squashed a few bugs that would cause problems if you tried to run the game with incomplete game files, and improved the error handling so that if something does go wrong, there’s a better chance of recovering from it. I’ve held off from putting anything “new” in there for the moment, but there’s definitely some new features I’d like to squeeze in before I’m done with version 0.3.

If you’re brave and willing to give it a go, you can download the latest test version here:
Edit: This version has been released. Check here for the latest version. 

I would recommend uninstalling the old version before putting this one on your phone. You can read more detailed release notes on the download page.

Edit (13/07/2012): New new test version available!

New CorsixTH version and video

I’ve just pushed a new version of my port of CorsixTH to Android (v0.1.7). You can download it here

I figured this was worth posting about because this is the first version that doesn’t require any manual steps in order to get it up and running. You can just download the APK and the wizard will give you the option of downloading the demo version of Theme Hospital. Of course, you can still copy over a full version of Theme Hospital if you want, but the demo version will let you play a cut-down version without the hassle.

In other news, simonjonnemeth from GitHub has uploaded a superb video of the application on his YouTube channel which shows the full process from installing to playing.
