Oil Rush: 3D Naval Strategy

  1. Dead Trigger 2 requires iOS 7 to be played. i don’t feel like having to upgrade to an iOS that i have no interest in just to play this game. fail.

    • Hang on. Because you don’t feel like upgrading to the iOS to support the game, it’s a fail? Methinks the jokes on you.

      1) No one really cares about your upgrade preferences
      2) Regardless of whether the game is good or not, a requirement to upgrade to the latest OS is irrelevant. Or are you writing your comments on a PC running Windows 3.1?

      • Hey chuck Finley, congratulations for winning the Bitch Of The Day award. This award goes to most butt hurt poster of this article. You, my man, are its grand recipient. Kudos. Now go back under the rock you crawled out of and move along.

        • Well Nekked (sic), in light of your whining and bitching in your opening post, I think I will have to wait for you to give it up.

          Right after you finish collecting Hypocrite of the Day.

          • Chuck, why not grow up a bit and act like an adult instead of a complete tool? Instead of offering any kind of sound advice like a good example above (loading) you choose to become the opinion police. Bonus for taking 2 posts to continue your nonsensical banter aka bitching.

          • Well I managed a workaround. A little skill and ingenuity will get you places. I guess some ppl just choose to sit there and go “um derp” and talk about forked tongues instead of try to figure things out.

      • Thank you for restoring my sanity. I was beginning to think I was in the twilight zone with comments like above. I’d also like to point out that, upgrading your iOS is inevitable. So you can bash all you like, but it’s a reality of software.

        • so you think that choosing Not to upgrade to iOS 7 is considered bashing? i’m pretty amazed by you two actually. i don’t think i’ve ever encountered any other over sensitive individuals. and on the internet no less.

          • This has nothing to do with sensitivity. It has much more to do with my sanity being restored thanks to gold ole chuck up there. You saying the game is a fail because you choose to not update your device to the supported version and calling it a ‘fail’ is a gigantic fail in logic. I don’t argue with people who fail in logic.

          • If you actually Read my first post I never said the game was a fail. Only the fact that its running on an OS that I prefer not to use. Couldn’t say that about a game I hadn’t played at that point now, could I? Now going by Logical terms, if both you and your good little buddy chuck actually Read my post you both wouldn’t have come up with the same illogical thought process. Now THAT is a fail. Bravo.

    • just sayin’, I wanted to play dead trigger 2 but only had ios 6.x.x. BUT. if you know how to plist edit a little and have a jailbroken iphone, you can actually play it on ios6. that’s what I am doing, and suprisingly, no bug or whatsoever so far. try it if you can

      • That might be worth a try. Yep my 4s is JBed. I’ll have to research a bit about plist editing. Hopefully I pull it off. Thanks.

        • А в чем проблема просмотреть файл .plist ? :) Я с этим за час справился, скачав игру с какого-то ресурса и открыв ее обычным архиватором в файле я поменял ось с 7-й на 6.1.2 и все пошло! :)

          • LionHead,

            I had to translate what you said, but thanks! hahah. i found another way to make the game work and it looks good so far. thanks for another good piece of advice anyway. some other people tho would rather sound like cry babies rather than be helpful :D
