Some users told me that Eyez should support gamepad controls. And I heard you. This weekend the UWP (i.e. Universal Windows Platform) version of Eyez is finally available on the Windows Store. This new version can run on all Windows 10 devices, has HD graphics, and most importantly supports keyboard/gamepad controls! Check it out via the link below:
The Android version of Eyez is now on Google Play! And it is completely free! You can get it via the link below:
Actually the Android version has been fully functional for a while. But for the sake of compatibility test and debugging I’ve been delaying the release date… Anyway, hope you all enjoy it! And please let me know if it doesn’t work properly! 🙂
So after I got a stable version of Eyez (iOS) up in the App Store, I started integrating all the new changes into the WP8 version. And today, WP version 0.9.0.7 has finally become available!
From this version on, Eyez is a native WP8 app, and has the new playable character Hooded Girl that is available in the iOS version. Among all the tweaks, one big improvement is that the jump button control now works more responsively. I am also keeping the last WP7 version (V0.9.0.4) available in the WP Store, just in case some WP7 users still need it.
It’s been almost half a year since I released the 3rd chapter of Eyez on Windows Phone, and today the game is finally available on the iOS platform! Aside from what is available in the WP version, there is also a new playable character in this new version: the Hooded Girl. When she uses her Eyez ability, the flow of time will slow down… So if you find levels later in game too hard, you might want to give this new character a try =)

So this major update is finally here! It’s been delayed for a few months, and I think the wait is worth it, because now the game is localized into 6 languages other than English!
And I can finally take my time and play some Dark Souls 2 after work haha…
Below is the updated WP Store app description:

* If you experience any problems, please send me an email. Be sure to include your phone model and system version, and if possible describe what happened. I will try to deliver a fix ASAP. Rating this game 1-star without explaining why won’t help solve any issues. After all, I’m only one indie developer… Thanks very much for your support!!

During the release of Eyez v0.8.0.0 I mentioned that Chapter 3 will be available by April, but now it seems I have to hold it back for a few more weeks… Believe me, I am trying my best to make this new chapter ready asap. I am so busy that I don’t even have time to play Diablo 3 ROS and Dark Souls 2 T_T
Life’s been busy but I’m still working on Eyez, though very slowly =/
…Honestly I was planning on releasing chapter 3 by the end of February, but the lead artist Yang is too busy to finish the new art assets in time… Anyway, this update brings in many bug fixes, level tweaks and other improvements. Consider it a preparation for Chapter 3! =D
