    I am playing fieldrunners, (easy, Grasslands, Extended) on my iphone and after i get through level 100 nothing happens. It doesn't tell me i won or anything; it just sits there.

    Do i need to sell everything? wait it out? Thanks.

    I had that happen to me, same thing: I was in Extended and got to level 100 and it just stopped. Nothing happened. I waited and ... nothing.

    Did you ever do anything or did you just move on to another level?

    From fieldrunners twitter account: fieldrunners Fixed in v1.2.2: the execution of the endgame routine declaring victory at round 100 for the Extended gameplay mode.

    So they said they fixed this problem....

    I think I either hit the Home button (probably what happened) or rebooted the iPhone. Either way, it worked after that. I think I got to 100 the next time and was able to go past it. Don't know what caused the freeze because I was in Extended mode.

    it has happened twice, that is why I was asking. I am sure it will figure itself out. Thanks for the help. I'll try again.

    In order to not have to buy it again, do i just delete it from the phone? After that just sync it?

    Yeah. When you click on "Buy", it will tell you that it's free because you've already paid for it. It'll then install it on your phone, so you'll have a fresh new copy.

    Son of a b!tch. I reinstalled fieldrunners and played it again and the same thing is happening. I get through the first level with no problems and then after I beat Grasslands, extended version it just sits there and does nothing.

    I haven't had time to play the game for long enough until today, and I'm having the same problem: it's stuck (frozen screen) after Round 100 on Extended mode. I'll report the bug.

    at least they fixed the bug that caused it to crash 20 times during a game

    if you like fieldrunners you should check out the final fantasy tower defense game they released, Crystal Defenders I believe. I've been playing it for the past couple of weeks and can't put it down.

    Here's their Forum: http://www.criticaltheory.net/subatomic

    It's been reported many times to them. I would guess they're working on fixing it.

    I read one of their posts that said they added the "save" of a game (pause it and hitting home allows you to resume later), but you know that.

    It appears to be a problem in Grasslands, Crossroads and Drylands EXTENDED mode. I used Endless mode after reporting on the Forum and it goes past 100 with no problems.

    Thanks. Hopefully they get that fixed. Pointless to play if I can't open up new levels.

    I was reading in that Forum yesterday and they submitted version 1.3 (or similar) to Apple on Feb 23, so hopefully that glitch will be fixed along with new improvements. The changelog is there.

    yeah this happens to me all the time. I knew it was a bug. It's a problem detecting victory after you've beaten the game on a level.

    A fix was released March 4th

    v1.2.2 has just been approved and is now available for download!

    Changes in v1.2.2:

    - Added the ability to fast forward through the game. This feature is unlocked at round 75 on a per-map basis.
    - Changed the configuration of fieldrunners that spawn in Extended and Endless mode making for a more challenging experience when playing through these modes.
    - Fixed the execution of the endgame routine that declares victory at round 100 in Extended mode.
    - Fixed audio from going silent when the device is interrupted (e.g., from an incoming phone call).
    - Fixed the ability to trap the fieldrunners in a cage of towers.
    - Fixed the deletion of save games when the device is backed up via iTunes.
    - Fixed a random crash issue in the audio engine.
    - Added a score bonus that is awarded for each remaining resource at the end of the game.
    - Increased the score penalty for selling a tower.
    - Increased the cost bubble on several of the icons so that it accommodates the width of the text.
    - Increased the speed of the goo that is fired from the goo tower.

    This caught me by surprise. On Drylands, there are now ground forces that traverse the north-south route, which means a complete rethink of my defense strategy. It's like a new field!
