In the previous post, we’ve announced the update of Underworld: Traffic that will fully support Android Froyo. The release was scheduled for September 27. Now, even though we have already fixed the game’s issues on Android Froyo, yet it can’t be released right away.

After fixing push notifications for the AppStore version of Underworld, it is time to announce some good news for Android users as well: the upcoming update of the game will include Froyo support.
As many of Android players have noticed, the currently existing version of the game isn’t compatible with the latest version of Android software: OS 2.2, codename Froyo. Due to few changes in the OS subsystems, the game has lost the ability to communicate with the server properly. Sorry, everybody, for not getting back to the problem earlier: the past few months were hectic and we had very little time to commit to improving things in Underworld.
Better late than never though. We have finally freed up enough time to fix the incompatibility with Froyo and few other annoying bugs. An estimate on delivering the update is September 27, if not earlier.
The game will be temporary removed from Android Market until we roll out the shiny updated version. Stay tuned, folks!
