Stop! My App is On Fire has been approved!


Finally! These long approval times are making us nuts. The biggest problem when an update takes so long, we will inevitably get the "that's it?" comments. But naturally we were excited it finally went through. But then, oops the TITLE IS WRONG. It reads "Flipping the Bird"....and not "Stop! My App is On Fire!" Ugh. So how did this happen? Well, I actually finished all the original assets for Flipping the Bird before we were able to submit the Fire update. I THOUGHT I waited until the fire update was submitted to change the title, but apparently there was some confusion and I did it prematurely.

So, to be absolutely clear.....there is NO bird (I'm sure you guessed what the title meant) in the current release. Sorry about that guys!

  16. It might be like the island update were you have to uninstall and reinstall the app. I got it though and it's awesome. BUT I FOUND A SMALL BUG: You guys still say in teh help menu that you have to use 2 fingers to slide the water. YOU ONLY HAVE TO USE 1! And my volcano glitch still works to, just put one finger in the water and another on land and then swipe across. All the pygmys land in the volcano and it erupts twice.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes! The update is finally out! And so is the Doodle Jump one! I think the approval system is finally starting to speed up.

    ReplyDelete
  18. There's a problem with the update. I can move the sky/water with one finger! You should fix that. Otherwise, great update!

    ReplyDelete
  19. OMG ive got it, it's awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  20. OMG i've got it and its awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great update. Besides the title I noticed you didn't change the thing in the help menu about using TWO fingers instead of one which is the case now. I like how you fixed the valcano tossing problem

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well, It came out just to clarify. I'm not sure about you guys but it came out at about two for me. Something weird about updates at the app store is happening. I had ten updates come within a two hour period.Maybe apple just hired some more app reviewers. It would be about time. I was having something wired happening and tapping the update thing again to refresh it seemed to do the trick. You should do 3.0 testing soon.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've got the update.

    However, I found a bug. It only takes 1 finger the move the water again. Not sure if it was intentional or an accident...

    ReplyDelete
  24. The sound disappears during the game. Is it just me?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Jeez, just because it's been approved doesn't mean that it's available!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Few more things. One other glitch [:(] when you turn off the cloud using your finger the clouds go flying. Try it see for yourself. Also How do you get "too close to the Bon fire" and "dropping kids off at the pool"??

    ReplyDelete
  27. SHOOT! I DELEATED MY APP AND LOST MY SECOND PLACE LEADERBOARD SCORING! I HATE U GUYS! not really i'm just mad.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Just played the app that is rly fun. i love burning the pygmies. I think though if u create a hurricane the fire should go out or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. you should do more with the under water map. and when you burn the pygmys...i think what you should do with them is shock them and they become zombies!!!! please comsider that suggestion

    ReplyDelete
  30. Can we get an update to make it so we can like hold down on the sun and get a solar flare that we would be able to shoot down on the wood (and pygmes too) to start the fire? Its kinda annoying to have to change the weather everytime I want to cook a fish, plus throwing fire balls would just be AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Excellence! This is awsomes!

    Red Alert!
    FairLady Media (creators of Whack 'em All)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sweet, but what does dropping the kids off at the pool mean?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Please tell me what the "Drop Kids Of At Pool" is!
    Heres some ideas in exchange:
    1. Huts for the pygmies.
    2. Being able to customize the pygmies.
    3. More insects
    4. Octopus
    5. More wepons

    ReplyDelete
  34. the new feint made my scores start over and yah but like the update hope the next 1 doesnt take so long

    ReplyDelete
  35. Any particular reason that when the app is done loading it says Ep 21: Flipping the Bird???

    ReplyDelete
  36. Someone knows what does the red star do?

    ReplyDelete
  37. WOOOHOOOO! Glad it's finally out! worth the wait though :D Can't wait for the next update! You guys are working so hard! I apperiate it! THANK YOU!

    You KNOW you like Pocket God!

    ReplyDelete
  38. My god, you tards!!! Just go to the pocket god page and buy the app again. That's one way to update it. Geez. Pay attention.

    ReplyDelete
  39. can you please make the fire available on the first island as well?

    ReplyDelete
  40. This update was 1 from 11 I had, maybe apple is going to be faster now.

    Why is the background from the underwater world changed?

    And can you both please make it possible to play Snake in the underwater world with the harpoon.

    Oogmie

  41. I've got an idea for a mini game that someone might have already suggested. Start timing how long it will take to kill the t-rex.
    Awesome game by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love to turn the pygmies into statues.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I really like that zombie idea by Zach too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow this app has truly come far since episode 1. I was looking through the archive and it's very interesting to see your progress and speed bumps along the way such as the pacific islander controversy or the rejection of march of the fire ants. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The choking pygmy is pretty funny.

    And here's something - in the feint chat... people have acheivements from the next episode. How is that possible?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I found a cool glitch.if you turn someone into a vampire then put the shark on someones head and then the vampire kills them the shark is floating in midair and you automatticly exit the app

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well I'm not complaining, I love the new update! Has anybody tried overcooking the fish..?

    ReplyDelete
  48. 2 things when you roast 6 pygmies then create a tsunami you can't spawn pigmies under water then when you go up there arnt any pygmies and then you can spawn them
    also in the instructions it still says 2 fingers for storm and tsunami

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, did the price not go up for this like everything else? Wow, good for this, to change the price:
    go to http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunesapp.html
    and put your name and email address in
    for feedback type click on enhancement request
    then on feedback topic click on buying music, movies, and audiobooks
    put subject as iTunes price
    Then copy this and paste it in the message:

    iTunes, how dare you change the price of songs. During financial times people won't be able to buy songs because it will waste money. Many people will boycott iTunes if the price does not go back down to $.99. We hope you make the right decision on lowering the price. Thank you.

    You can add a few things to that if you want. I don't care. Just make sure you have something like that. It just bugs me. Please send this on to other people.
    Please help and do this.

  50. i dont understand how to do the "drop kids off at pool","gift of dance", and "too close to bon fire" things that are in the leaderboards in feint. please tell me bolt creative!!! i hate not knowing stuff!!! btw, i love pocket god!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. there's another bug. I tried tapping on the toilet when the oog is in there. NOTHING HAPPENS! They won't even come out!

    This is a big bug!

    ReplyDelete
  52. We should have an update where your description of each pygmy affects how they act like evil would make them smile smugly every so often, prankster would pull out a funny face or emotional would start to cry if you dropped them and so on. It would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm glad the two finger thing for changing the sky and water is gone, but in the instructions it still says you need to use to fingers.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Lmao make the pygmies eat a burnt fish

    ReplyDelete
  55. Great but what does dropping the kids off at the pool mean?

    ReplyDelete
  56. The problem is the suspense builds and builds because we have to wait so long and even if it is a good update we are craving more for our wait and so it seems like it sucks......and so im left saying... (about this update)Thats it?

    ReplyDelete
  57. yayyy, this update is great!
    it was very much worth the wait- the steps to make the fire happen and everything is incredibly fun, and i'm glad it gives more than one way to torture the pygmies this time. >:)
    thank you guys so much for your hard work and dedication! i've been a fan the whole way. yay boltcreative! :)

  60. PEOPLE! Are some of you from KINDERGARTEN!? you'd think so, because some of you are kinda dumb. Just reasd the freaking OP(oh wait... that's right... some of you don't know what things mean - Original Post. and you'll see that ALLAN or DAVE explains everything. Gift of dance... HAVE YOU PEOPLE NEVER MADE YOUR PYGMIES(No, they're not OOGMIES or OOGS or PYGMOOGS, they're PYGMIES!) DANCE!? people... really... come on now... Since it's not too obvious, I will say this: Dropping the kids off at the pool is a pygmy in the outhouse, and it's a gift. But with the whole "I knocked and the pygmy wouldn't come out of the outhouse" thing... Dude... knock a few times... really... I get sick of explaining these things to people, OTHER PG-ers get sick of explaining it, and you can bet your BUTT that dave and allan get even more tired... so seriously... keep it down people... And of course you can get the achievements for the next update, if you're a Beta Tester...

    ReplyDelete
  61. I lorf this update. It really appeals to my evil side. Heh heh heh...

    I, too wish to know just what "Too Close to Bonfire" means, for it sounds fun but I can't get it to work.

    I also know what "Gift of Dance" is. It's pretty obvious.

    And "Dropping the Kids Off at the Pool"... but I won't say for fear of my comment not going through.

    Anyhaps, I like the new underwater background, but I must agree with others in saying "Where's the shark?" It ought to be down there, you know.

    Also, I has been thinking quite a bit recently, and I've wondered why the pygmies can't fight the vampire. I mean, they can take down a dinosaur, but not a pygmy that pushes them off the island. Huh?

    I second Zach's zombie idea. Or third. Dunno.

    I've been an uberfan of this app since, er, um, Episode Eight, and I'm so glad you guys over at Bolt Creative are still updating more than any app I've heard of. Thanks for the great creation!

    ReplyDelete
  62. i think the approveal system is up i got 12 updates in the past 2 days

    ReplyDelete
  63. muffin man, you just have do tap on the door often and fast. 1 or 2 times is not enough.
    When you did that and it doesn't work than you probably have to delet it and download it again

    PS: Gift of dance means just let them dance. But what means "dropping the kids off at pool" and "too close to bonfire"??

    ReplyDelete
  64. What do dropping kids off at pool means or to close to bonfire or gift of dance

    ReplyDelete
  65. lol....Dropping the kids off at the pool...everyone can blame that little joke on Dave!!! I suggested "Answering the call of nature"...we were trying to say something besides "going to the bathroom" or even grosser. When i first heard the term a long time ago "I'm gonna go drop the kids off at the pool" I laughed hysterically because its sounded so wrong. So when Dave wanted to use that, I said "people aren't gonna get it at first, but when the do, at least its funny"

    ReplyDelete
  66. is there an email or somthing that i can send a video of Flip it! (app) that i made with some good ideas for this?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm not sure if you've noticed yet but, the dinosaur egg is no longer there. also the water takes one finger to move, same with they sky either way amazing update! keep it up :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hey Bolt Creative... If dropping kids off at the pool is the little outhouse, that's been there for quite a few updates. How is it new?

    Secondly, for those who want to figure out the "to close to the bonfire", I'll give you a hint. Tapping or dragging the wood when it's on fire puts out the fire. But what can you do to the fire itself?

    Great update Bolt!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thanks for the explanation, um, whoever posted that. (Allan? Someone else? Perhaps the little-mentioned Seth?)

    If you guys want to get too close to the bonfire, try tapping the fire. Not the logs, but the actual fire. Heh heh heh...

    I've been wondering for a while now... How do you become a beta tester? Do you have to be important like mister SaintsAlive (nGen Games)? Or live close to wherever Bolt Creative is stationed? I painstakingly read through... erm, most of the FAQ and it didn't clarify. If there are any openings, I'd love to help out.

    Sorry about my posts, I tend to ask a lot of questions, so my supposedly short questions like these usually turn into essays.

    I'm glad there are more gifts for the pygmies now. I hope people will complain less often about the cruelty of this game. It's not cruel-evil, it's, um, fun-evil.

    Looking forward to the bird! (chicken?)

  70. "Too close to bonfire" I can also understand - Tap the fire(not the logs, the upper fire) to make it flare and set pygmies on fire :D

    ReplyDelete
  71. Only one glitch that I've seen. The bathroom sometimes freezes. You tap it like 9 times, and the pigmy doesn't come out. Otherwise, great work guys.

    ReplyDelete
  72. @walter I'm important? \:| Really? Thanks...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Cole, the same thing happened to me...

    ReplyDelete
  74. Well, yeah, sure, saintsalive, you created teh marshmallow song!
    And you're not just a person like most of the rest of us, you have some kind of organization that you represent (nGen Games). That's important, right?

    To whoever deals with glitches, I had an odd one recently involving fishing. I moved the fishing rod, and as it fell into the water, somebody picked it up. Then the new rod fell, somebody picked that one up and started fishing, and the one who picked up the falling rod slowly slid offscreen towards the bottom-left corner. Then he died. I got a couple of screenshots, but I don't know that I can post them here.

    I've also had the fish shadow appear swimming behind the land. Then it was caught and pulled from the water.

    I too have had my bathroom freeze.

    But considering the size of your app, I'm impressed there isn't more. Yay! Good job! *clapclapclap*

    Oh no, another huge post. Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  75. for the stop my app is on fire update; it said ep 21: flipping the bird?

    PLEASE NOTE!1!1!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Specifically to cleeh, mason, walter, and well, everyone else. I thought of the idea back before there was even a vampire in Pocket God when I saw that the bat came from the moon I thought of aliens. Although I thought of it so soon I had no idea that there was a Pocket God Blog until my friend told me about it like months later. So I checked out all of the posts and comments to see what other people around the world thought of Pocket God and saw that you could share your ideas. It was then that I decided to tell about my idea since no one had voiced it in comments. Therefore, I took it on as my own and decided to bring it up whenever possible in comment sessions in every post I thought could relate to updates and so on. (not fan videos or fan art) I did, have and will until there is either no me or no Pocket God check their blog whenever I can for comments back about my ideas and thoughts. Imagine the gratitude and happiness that I felt when I was commented back by one of the creators of Pocket God about my idea. I have thought of it as my own because no one else took credit or thought of anything to do with it. People were commenting about other things like boats, octopuses, fire, vampires, where-wolves, and so on. If you think about it, I would consider it my alien idea legacy. I just over reacted when someone else, PocketPlayer64 to be specific, came in on that 'legacy'. (if you don't like the way I worded it I'm sorry if I'm making it seem like such a huge thing, but it is huge) I'm sorry for the way I came off on PocketPlayer64. I apologize to Dave and Allan (The true Gods of Pocket God), PocketPlayer64, all fans of Pocket God, and anyone else I may have hurt in my mad exclamations. This just really means a lot to me. It has from the time I thought of the idea, even more when I was recognized by A God of Pocket God, and even more when I found out that the red dot in the sky was the beginning of what could be my idea. I was and am overcome with happiness for making a change in the world of Pocket God. I know that people are skeptical of my actions as of writing this comment and sharing my feelings and facts about how I came up with aliens for Pocket God, and about how cheesy this may sound to many of you, if not all of you. I just ask that you try to believe me if you can. I want to say again that I am deeply sorry PocketPlayer64 for my angry remarks. Thank you PocketPlayer64 for your apology in the comments section of that one post. I also wanted to say that I have made a post on my blog that you can all look at and reveil anything that you want to say to me that you would not like any other Pocket God fans to hear. Just click on PUPPYLOVER#1 above this comment. Thank you all for reading this and listening.
