Version 1.19 released on February 28, 2017
Thanks to all the millions and millions of Air Hockey Gold players out there! We dragged Air Hockey Gold, kicking and screaming, into iOS 10 happiness. As you know, Air Hockey's been around a while. You wouldn't believe the mess we found in there. So, we ripped off some bandages, stripped out the bailing wire, and had to melt off some duct tape - but here it is! Here's what's new: - 64 BITS OF GOODNESS! You won't see that warning about the developer needing to do an update anymore. Air Hockey, however, still runs exactly as awesomely fast as it ever did. - Added support for iPad Pro along with all the latest iPhone models & screen sizes. - Melted & reformed the menu code. (We'll add that replay button some day...it didn't make this version though.) - Taught the AI some new tricks. The computer player is now a little smarter/different and better at using the whole table. - Reflowed the goal detection logic to make sure we always catch those sneaky pucks. - Made the Air Hockey logo shiny and happy again...and it sits were we told it to. - Fixed the middle-of-the-screen pause screen double tap button placement. It was trying to get away. - Fancied up the menu background translucent coloring a bit. - New launch screen. Some devices & iOS versions saw some odd behavior in the last version. No more! - Reworked the device rotation code. You absolutely won't notice a difference, but it looks so much nicer under the hood. - OK. Would you believe that until now Air Hockey still used a modified version of the way-long-gone OpenFeint to handle GameCenter? It was messy. MESSY. We had to use a chainsaw and leaf blower, but it's all gone & replaced with sweet native Game Center code. (Please please let us know if you can find any Game Center, ummm, "integration issues" that are still hanging around.) - Did some really minor graphics tweaks in a couple places. There was a spec that was a quarter pixel off. Kicked it! - Killed some sound bugs. - So many little odds & ends that we forgot them all. We did stuff. It was good. There was much rejoicing. Secret developer note from days of old: Did you know that the goal sounds in Air Hockey were recorded by sliding a plastic air hockey puck across a granite kitchen counter top into a glass mixing bowl with a wash cloth in it? It took about 100 tries plus some editing to get the few goal sounds we use in the game. Those were the days!

Version 1.18.1 released on September 24, 2013
Tested on the iPhone 5S! This is a quick fix for a bug we accidentally sprinkled in on the last version. If you missed version 1.18, here's what was new: HUGE UPDATE! Millions of thanks to the millions of Air Hockey players across the world! You want iOS 7...you want Air Hockey...you really want this update! Here’s the low down on the awesome new stuff: - iPhone 5 support! Yeah, we know. The iPhone 5 and 5th generation iPod touch have been out for a while. We can’t tell you yet about the secret new game we’re working on, but it got in the way (big time) of you getting awesome Air Hockey action on your new widescreen device. Air Hockey’s been around since the beginning of the App Store (remember when it was the #1 paid game!?) -- it took some hammers and chisels to make Air Hockey perfect for the iPhone 5. Just in time for the new new new ones! - Completely redesigned interface! Air Hockey’s old menu system for the iPhone and iPod touch was pretty boring. Ugly even. So, we ripped it out and completely started over. The new look on the iPhone and iPod touch is fresh, shiny, and (dare we say) way way better. - Improved wireless 2 player games! You have a couple iPads around your house, right? Who doesn’t!? Grab them both and play Air Hockey against each other wirelessly. Since the Air Hockey table size changes quite a bit between the widescreen & non-widescreen iPhones and the iPad, you have to play against someone with a similar screen layout as you -- no iPad to iPhone 3GS games, that’d be silly! You can even do great stuff like play wireless games between Air Hockey and Air Hockey Gold. It’s like magic! - Performance improvements! With some more work under the hood, our testing showed a 1-puck single-player game ran at 60 frames per second on the iPhone 5 using only around 3% of the CPU. Our custom physics engine is still running at 1000Hz (that’s 1000 times a second!) for the best Air Hockey on iOS! Crazy! - Squashed some bugs & probably sprinkled in some new ones. Line 2550 in the main game file really needed some work. - New icons! Ok, this isn’t earth shattering, but we want the icon to look great on your device. The Air Hockey icon looks awesome on your device. Beautiful corners - we have ‘em. - Cleaned up some ads. Not so exciting, but we have to pay the bills (anyone else have twin babies at home?!). We got rid of some old ad networks. - Dropped iOS support for everything before iOS 4.3. This is a requirement to support the iPhone 5. We really love our players who are still rockin’ their original iPod touches, but we have to move on. (Psst! Get a new iPod touch - they rock too!). If you like Air Hockey Gold, please take the time to give us a nice review. It really helps.

Version 1.17.1 released on December 04, 2012
Ok, one more! We're sneaking in one more update that supports iOS 3 before we do the big update that will require iOS 5.0 or newer. This update fixes a problem with old devices and retires a service we've used for years. YIKES!! OpenFeint is shutting down their servers over 6 months earlier than they previously announced. This update disables OpenFeint. If you don't already use Game Center, it's time! This version also fixes a nasty crash on iOS 3 devices. Sorry about that. To avoid big issues with OpenFeint's impending demise, everyone needs this update. RIP, OpenFeint.
