My, what marvelous matching!
Thanks so much for your positive response and insightful suggestions for our newest With Friends game! This update puts together a slew of bug fixes and enhancements to smooth out your play experience and make it better than ever:
-You can now see your friend’s Facebook profile pic when it’s their turn, reminding you exactly who you’re color-chaining into oblivion.
-The piece placement in the tutorial is now more forgiving for people who haven’t played it a million times like us
-Small hints and reminders were fixed (they were broken) and now should explain various parts of the game as you play. Think of them as a stern but lovable mentor who chastises you all the time but secretly thinks you’re his prize student.
-Changed the paid icon to read “”Matching”” instead of “”Matching Paid””. You no longer have to ask yourself, “”Matching paid who?!””
-A bushel of bug fixes! Yes, they’re measured in bushels.
