news-uw-premiumA Premium version of Underworld just got into the AppStore.

  • In-app purchase support
  • Map screen bug on 3.1 firmware fixed (incorrect positions)
  • Interface improvements (‘stock value’ in Money screen, dealers’ profiles in Recent Deals, etc)
  • Ability to choose how much stuff to dump in Stock controls

If you know what the Premium version is, just go download it. If you don’t, read on!

What is Premium version?

It’s a version of Underworld supporting in-app purchase mechanics, that was brought to the AppStore by 3.0 firmware earlier this summer.

Underworld has always been free, why paid now?

Underworld is still free-to-play and it will always be. However, currently existing UW Points distribution scheme is neither convenient nor intuitive; this is why we decided to switch to in-app purchase support.

Right now, only paid applications can feature in-app purchases. That is why Premium version is paid after all: $0.99 in US iTunes Store. For this minimum possible price, UW Premium grants you:

  • 4×1 hour of full police protection
  • 4 days protection from the loan shark
  • 1 Supply & Demand info request
  • 1 Carry Space 30% boost for 4 hours

All the stuff you get is placed into your Inventory (a new entity in Underworld screen) and is activated/used any time you need it.

I still have some UW Points left, what do I do?

No worries! If you still have UW Points left on your account, there is a subsection in Underworld screen, which allows you to spend them.

  • If I buy this app will it merge with all the info that I already have from the old app?

  • Viviane, your character data, cash, stock and everything that is stored on server-side will load up automatically in the new version. The only thing that won’t merge is your messaging & deal history (stored locally). But you can always come back to your current version and check out what you need.

  • Glad to see you taking advantage of all the new 3.0 items! Push notifications have been a big plus. Hopefully we’ll continue to see more great things.

  • Ken, yep, I’ll make a review of some things we are working on soon.

  • Feedback on the Premium version is very welcome!

  • Hey I love the new ideas and the game, shame we have to pay though. Can’t you work around that??

  • Hey guys love the game, I was introduced by a friend and now I’m hooked!!! I have tried to install the drug lords theme and it hasn’t worked…do you or anyone know how to resolve problem? Either way I’m addicted but would like to convert over to drug references. Cheers

  • I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been utilizing? I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more secure. Do you have any suggestions?
