I think there's always a way to use the pixelation to advance the tone of the game, whether funny or serious. In Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, the art was hand-painted before the inevitable conversion into pixels, and it really stood out. A lot of the backgrounds are very beautiful to look at, even after being pixelated.

The Indy films are action comedies, so LucasArts made Fate of Atlantis an adventure comedy. Sometimes a character's eyes would bug out when startled and it was funny without coming across too cartoonish. This only worked because of the pixelation; it made the animation more subtle. They chose NOT to enlarge the heads of the characters to make the facial expressions more visible (like they had done previously in Maniac Mansion).

You couldn't say Fate of Atlantis was an all serious game and you couldn't say it was an outright comedy. But if they had enlarged the heads, it would have been more cartoony and comedic, and if they hadn't thrown in a few slapstick moments and a lot of witty dialogue, it would have felt much more serious.

Rambling. Point being: I think you can always work the retro graphics to whichever tone you like, if you're smart.

Thanks for the message. It's a bummer but I guess Apple's got to stay up to date. Thanks for really being on top of things! You guys are so quick to reply to posts and I think that's great!

Hey, thanks for the quick reply,

No worries. I enjoy the game a lot, so it will be fun to go back through it :)

Separate question though: is there any way to share save files between two devices? For example, if I'm playing on my phone and want to continue playing later on my iPad?

I get this message whenever I try to load my saved game on my iPad:

Error: wrong script module count; cannot restore game

It comes up every time I press "Continue," or if I select either of my two save files under "Load Game."

I'm trying to avoid starting over at the beginning of the game because I've gotten pretty far. I checked the App Store and saw that the update for the game nullifies all previous save files. My iPad updates apps automatically and did so today with Gemini Rue. Is there any way to get those save files back???
