    First question might be is it already?

    Second my phone is possibly going to be replaced this year (GS8 so no rush).  3.5mm jacks seem to be going out of fashion and fine with me.  I am no audiophile and do not know the difference between Spotify over BT v Deezer FLAC wired.............I wonder how many "audiophiles" could really spot a c sharp from a c if tested.....

    Games do take up power and the 3.5mm jack going south does suggest that most are simply not using phones for games.  This leaves tablets mobile wise?  I don't own one and no great interest in changing that for a mobile solution (phone or windows based something for me).

    I have tried WGT on mobile but fail to see it's appeal.  I am never going to be a 3 hole person (keep it clean please).

    Obviously Flash will be as interesting in a few years to the 20s coming of age in 2040 as VHS is to the millenials, just that Flash does not have that long.

    I wish this game well, just wondering what I might be missing with the mobile version?  How do people play it that use the platform?

    iPads and tablets. You'd be surprised at how much easier it is on a tablet vs the little phone screen, I was. I won't be switching anytime soon but after seeing how the game plays on an iPad I can see why so many are moving in that direction.

    The tablet is just a larger version of your phone. They both use the same platform.  :-)

    We're not taking the PC platform away at all. 

    And mobile is already big. But we fully understand that our players have preferences and some certainly prefer the PC game. 

    No matter how you enjoy WGT, the game isn't going away.

    Wasn't really meant to hint anything or hurt any feelings. We have a lot of players. Some prefer PC, some prefer mobile, some play both.

    I will reply to this just so I have that statement in my own history, and I certainly hope it is right - it's about time someone clarified, maybe they did but I didn't see it.

     

    For me phones are for making phone calls - call me old fashioned but only just this morning I was having my usual hell trying to copy over photos and vids from my partners dreaded i-phone - in the end I just had to take the damn storage card out and do it the direct way - but was thinking phones and PC's just don't get on do they, but at least PC's don't control every facet of my life - I will take a PC absolutely any day thanks, I guess it stands out more where I live, you probably don't even notice it but I thought putting a compilation together of people on their phones in their everyday lives.... to this old 60's spinner.....

    You might notice it as a CC owner........no one speaks here deena luv, every post on the forum is yours - they have all gone to the moon!!

     

    I am currently battling to re-salvage my girlfriend from them, they only have her up to her armpits at the moment and I am furiously intent on dragging her out of the evil jaws of that creature that stole mankind away from the physical world and turned them all in to living 'bots'

    ***shivers***

    I suppose the next step will be the 'download consciousness' app and then they have totally and utterly won haven't they!!

     

    Not this one though - the last living 'person' on earth....

     

    deena.

     

    and out.

    Ever? Not sure. 

    At this time there are no plans for a version through Steam.

    Jim I have a Mobile Emulator(Bluestacks) on my laptop. I can play Mobile on my PC.

    I just hate mobile, so I haven't really played it.
