MoveIt 1.5 is now available. For some reason I cannot get an information screen to pop up for the first time run when updating MoveIt from the market. The information is that you can select which time mode you would like to play in the settings page. I have not removed the locked levels so that you can choose which level you would like to start on right of way. The timer is optional for increasing the complexity of the level if you would like a challenge. If you are having problems with installations or updates please let me know so I can report it to Microsoft. As you can see by now I have changed my graphic for MoveIt. Although I like the original art I feel that new users might not stop to check out MoveIt if the graphic is not eye popping. Plus I had a request to change it too. Hope you are enjoying the game.
MoveIt 1.4 is now available. Once you install the update, you start MoveIt, and you hit the play button, a screen should come up and show you the changes. Then if you hit continue another screen will come up and allow you to choose the time mode. When testing this on my phone everything worked fine but when I installed the update from the market I did not get these pages. You should check out the time mode in settings and choose one so that you can unlock the levels. You have to have the easy time mode or higher for unlocks. Here are some of the new features.
- There are now level unlocks so that you can start from your favorite level without having to start from the beginning each time. Note that only the easy time mode or higher will unlock levels.
- There are now four timer modes you can choose from. Choose no time, easy, normal or crazy. If you are up for a challenge then play the hard level with the crazy timer. I guarantee that you will not last long.
- Now there are menus with buttons instead of the navigation bar.
- The sound and music quality has been improved and the loudness level has been increased.
- The help file has been updated.
The high scores and users feature was not in this version but is coming so keep a look out for the update.
Possible or known bugs in v1.4:
- I have one report from Canada that the game did not save. I have not seen this before but I am looking into it. If your game does not save then leave me some feedback so that I can tell if it is a single incident or a larger problem. Thanks spydahman23 for letting me know.
I updated MoveIt from 1.2 to 1.3. I found and fixed a few bugs that you probably never have noticed. I also fixed the misspelled word, first, in the in game help.
It sounds like you are having fun and I am happy to read that you are. I know that MoveIt can be challenging with the multiple paths especially with the timer but that is part of the challenge. If you think that is tough wait until you get to the multiple paths with the timer, random block radius and random angle with a ten by ten game board. All of those elements combined make it a real challenge.
Set a goal and try to accomplish that goal. For example, try to beat your highest level or increase your score average. Challenge your family and friends and see who can get to the highest level. MoveIt is the perfect game to play no matter where you are at. You can play while waiting at the airport, bus stop, on your sofa while watching TV and more. I am sure that wherever you play is as good as any place, but make sure that you do not drive and play at the same time.
Game updates are on the way and you can look forward to more functionality to improve your gaming experience. Here are a few features that will be added.
- High Score
I never realized that I had not put a high score in the stats. If you look at the stats you see Score which is the total score for all of the games you have played. Players will allow you to create a player and play with that player so that way you can keep your stats separate from family and friends.
Have you ever wondered what the bonus points are for? The bonus points are awarded when you have completed a level within an estimated time required to complete the level. Even if the level is not using the timer there is still an estimated time determined to complete that level. Complete the level before that time and you are awarded bonus points.
Have fun and MoveIt!
Added links to the remix and original videos. I would make it seamless from my app to the youtube app but I cannot figure out how to do it. Once I figure it out I will update the app. Right now there is no way to allow a user to have custom ring tones. Once Microsoft comes out with the ability I will add it.
I am listening to your comments. The looping is not by design and was never discovered in the testing. The reason the sound loops is because the media player is shared by apps including the phone and the repeat has been turned on in another app. Update 1.1 will check and make sure that repeat is off. I made the update in less than 24 hours but Microsoft’s testing process takes some time but hopefully you will see the update within a few days. Thanks for the feedback and comments and keep them coming.
