A major update for G Generation Touch is available, and while it promises the cure of all problems and the addition of extra content at the shop, none of them is currently available for the rage of angry customers. A word of warning before updating is that your in-stage save data will be erased after upgrading, so it’s better to finish that stage before doing so.
There’s also reports that the game asks to repurchase the content, but for those who already paid the first time, it’s likely that it will only redownload without costing a buck. Hopefully, I mean.
I’ve updated to check out a few notable additions: better touch controls and extra content at a shop.
The better touch controls can be used by choosing the Touch Type B at the options screen. The only thing different I’ve noted so far is that you can move right away from touching the unit, instead of having to choose the move option, which is a good start. It can be confusing at first, but it’s manageable.
There’s also a somewhat confusing unit selection slider, used to scroll through the units on map. You can flick right or left to choose a unit, but it’s rather useless when attacking as it selects an allied unit instead of an enemy, and after choosing an enemy it still lists all enemy units instead of those in range. But as I said, it’s a good start.
The shop is still under construction, it seems. No matter the option you choose, be it Unit Blueprints, Characters, Tickets or Capsule Getter (whatever that is), they all stay at the forever rolling Haro screen with a “connecting to server” like message. There’s no cancel button, so if you get fed-up with ZZ’s theme you have to close the game and restart.
Another thing in the added feature list is Game Center integration. It’s essentially there for Achievements, however, it’s the least needed feature right now IMO.
So, as the shop remains unusable, our hope to access extra units like the G-3 and Prototype Gundams are still slim. We’ll have to wait for them to either fix what’s wrong with their server to see if it’s actually worth the wait, or just go back on playing G Generation World.
