    Straight from the developers.
    I know this isn't new info, but it has yet been posted.

    I am like most of you who are waiting to play this game with sound :)

    as much as I'm looking forward to the update with new maps and runners, I'm not actually bothered by the inclusion of sound. Given all that's happening in each of the rounds I would only see it as a distraction with constant guns, explosions, screams and whatever going on all the time. With games lasting 30 mins that's a lot of repetitive 'noise'. Plus it will swell the file size. Just my 2p.

    I hope he gives us the ability to mute it, unlike some devs.

    Misleading title of thread!!!

    To the op, very misleading title of the thread. The update is NOT pending with Apple since it is not complete. The dev hasn't even completed the first update according to their site so to say the update is "pending" is really really misleading, since that would imply the update is complete and is waiting for apple's approval. Which it is not.

    Not to mention i don't understand why the dev is working on v1.1 and v1.2 simultaneously when if he had focused on v1.1, i'm sure it would have been out by now. Would only make sense if he had a large team that could multitask, but that is probably not the cse.

    This was never really news to begin with, it was posted in the Fieldrunners forums by their staff back on October 17th. I get the impression that there are a few individuals working on this at least part time. So yes, they probably are multi-tasking. They did hire the sound guy, and another person is likely working on new sprites (towers and runners) and maps for the next version while the programer wraps up the first update. :)

    Who said they were working on 1.2. Maybe they are planning.

    Good game, I wish it had sound. If the update provides sound, and more levels... that'd me cool.

    I LOVE this game. Got it yesterday, been playing it pretty non-stop. It's getting in the way of my writing.
