With universal support already built into Bit Blast, it should be painless to release an update that makes use of the imminent iPhone 5’s announced features.
We expect (based on all the rumors) that the iPhone 5 will have a new screen resolution of 1136×640, which is not far from the existing 960×640 used by the iPhone 4 but is taller. What this means for Bit Blast is that we’ll be able to fit more bits in the vertical space before growing horizontally. This means ‘Levels Ups’ will occur twice vertically before occurring horizontal.
For you, the player, this means more bits to blast and creates opportunity for even longer chains at lower levels!
We’ll see what apple announces today, but in the meantime here’s a preview of what Bit Blast looks like at the new resolution.
