Yes, great news! Have you tried to play on a 7 inch screen, or is it too small?

We've tested on 10" and 8" tablets. It should be playable on 7" screens as well, it might be a tad fiddly - but there's a bunch of selection logic to try and "guess" what you meant to click on.

Sounds great. I have tried to play DD on my android tablet via remote desktop and I could imagine it working at that size but the controls were way too clumsy, so it might work with the interface for touch devices. Can't wait to try it!

This seed will be different on each of the mobile platforms, so while you can only play the daily once per day on PC(inc. Mac and Linux) you’ll be able to play a second hypothetical re-enactment on your iPad and then a third on your Android tablet. Each with their own leaderboards.

For some reason I thought that there would be one daily, and you can play it on any day on any device, thus bringing the same content to all regardless of platform. I'm surprised to see three distinct dailies and leaderboards, is this because of some limitations on the workings of the mobile platforms, i.e. is using the game faster / easier on PC and comparison of the results would not be "fair"? :o

Why? You have the same profile accross devices, no? You can already buy two copies of the game and create a separate profile and use one to scout the daily and the other to ace it, though it's not normally needed to do so thanks to the usually generous difficulty. Or you could just use some cheat console. But that just takes the fun away, doesn't it?

Yeah you are right... if logging in on one device kicks you out in the other this is true. I never understood cheaters, that get lvl 1 on a highscore list by cheating. Do they feel proud?^^

Some people like to see them selves on top of the leaderboard, regardless wether they cheated or not.
