Whitaker Trebella’s Polymer has gotten its first big update since its release back in May. The game is now universal for the iPad, supporitng retina resolutions, to go along with its new icon. Content unlocks will sync across devices using iCloud, ensuring no lost progress when installing on new devices. The developer recommends launching the game on the original device first and letting it sit for a couple of minutes to ensure data is properly uploaded, then it may take a few seconds for progress to synchronize on the new device, but it is confirmed as working.
Several changes and additions have been made to gameplay. Game Center online multiplayer has been added, where two players compete on the same board to try and make the biggest polymer in 2 minutes. The Two Minutes mode is now available in 5 and 10 minute increments, configurable from options, with individual Game Center leaderboards for each mode. A stress-free endless mode has been added.
