Thanks to everyone who helped build levels for the app! It really helped us get the job done! However, we are going to have updates in the future with more levels, so if anybody still feels like they want to build more, that would help out a lot. Send in whatever you have, even if it's just one level.
The price is 2.99 for anybody who has an iPhone or an iPod Touch. If anybody here knows anyone who has one, please let them know about the game. Thanks again for all your help!

As you can see, we had to make changes to the graphics to get everything to fit on the screen of the iPhone. However, we are currently making an update that will have the PC version of the graphics in the game as well, so players can choose which one they prefer. The PC graphics look better but are much smaller.
So far people seem to be enjoying it, which is always a good sign! :)

I am LOVING the iPhone version. Thanks guys for designing it. I wrote you a review for iPhone as well...
Are your updates going to be free updates or are you designing additional packages of levels for purchase?

I did see your review and it is very much appreciated. Thanks! I am glad you are enjoying the iPhone version of Rich Diamond. Lots of other people are commenting to us that they are enjoying it too, so that's a good sign. It was a lot of fun making it!
We are planning on having updates in the future that are free and include extra levels. The goal is to keep expanding the level sets until they are more full. If there is demand for it we may even make a way in the future for customers to build their own levels and send them to their friends!
We may at some point have a new set for sale that would be several hundred levels, but as it stands currently all updates will have some free levels included!
I haven't played the game in quite some time. My computer crashed over a year ago and I thought I had all my levels backed up but for the life of me, I couldn't find them on an external drive or CD anywhere. It's tough when you lose that many files. I lost my original Rich Diamond file from when I played the game over 10 years ago! I remember that those original 80 levels were beyond tough and I'm not sure I could complete them again let again manage the high scores I once did. And I did a lot of work on the Labyrinth Level Set and I can't imagine doing that one all over again! Those levels were huge! I got an iPhone this past Christmas and one of my first apps that I purchased was the Rich Diamond game. It's fantastic! I love playing it if I'm riding a bus, subway, airplane, etc. Or when I have a few minutes to just sit down and relax. I've finished the 130 puzzles in the Easy Level Set and have mastered all 130 of them. (I managed to beat the High Score on 4 levels - Puzzle 60 (1 step better), Puzzle 76 (28 steps better), Puzzle 109 (6 steps better), and Puzzle 123 (8 steps better). One thing I really love about this version of the game is the 'Undo' feaure. It's so nice being able to just take one (or more) step(s) back when you realize you made a mistake instead of constantly having to save your game and restart it. It's the feature I utilize the most when I'm trying to 'blue" the levels. I play the game in 'perspective' mode because I'm used to it after playing Rich Diamond for so many years. The 'top down' mode just doesn't look right to me! I'm working on the Medium Level Set now and while I've managed to solve most of the puzzles, matching the high scores are not easy! There are a couple of them that I've played quite a few times and just can't find the missing steps. Anyway, great job on the game design and everyone who created these tiny but challenging levels. It's a nice way for me to get back into the game!
