Not only a great deal but "Pure" is apparently a much better version of the original game updated in accordance to criticism of the orginal game!(this update is free for those who purchased the game already)

This plus a drop to 800MSP bargain!

"Dark Energy Digital is delighted to announce Hydrophobia Pure - a comprehensive title update which overhauls many of the games systems and introduces a number of enhancments, according to the feedback we received from critics and the community.

Hydrophobia Pure will launch on Tuesday 21st December as a free update for existing Hydrophobia owners and coincides with a price drop to just 800 Microsoft points
.
We'd like to thank everybody for their valuable feedback and hope you will enjoy the results in Hydrophobia Pure."

Here is a vid of the game and the list of updates. There was a massive series of updates so props to the guys for doing so much and listening to fans.

Doesnt seem that different to me on 1st impressions. The update is only 4mb btw.

looks pretty good for 800 points.

need to buy some points first...(_;)

Agreed. A lot of people could learn a valuable lesson from the team here. Listening to your fans can never really be a bad thing.

looks ok but im sure i would get bored quick

No, its a free update if you already paid 1200. 800 points for newbies.

Nope... the price has been cut to 800 points for the whole package, including the updates. For people who already own the update is free. It is only 4mb but our game engine InfiniteWorlds is procedural which allows us to do a huge amount of updates in a small file size. The full list of updates can be found here:

Really delighted with all the support for the gaming community. Merry Christmas everyone hope you enjoy

I love that if you paid when it came out, you got a crappy game and paid 400 msp more than if you bought the better version now! And by love, I mean... well, let's just say I'm glad I didn't buy it first time around!

Yes but Dark Energy Digital (blade interactive) HydroEngine uses a condensed file transmitting programming, meaning they can send over the same amount of data is a smaller file size. Take a JPEG to GIF
