    Anyone else having problems with it? I ran it once fine, then later all I got was a white screen.

    I'm finding it takes a little while to load each time. But once the white screen disappears and the little loading meter pops up it works fine.

    Hello,

    Please bare in mind that this game is not owned by me and I am not affiliated with the owner.

    For this reason, I do not have the source code and cannot do great deals to make the game better on PlayBook.

    The white screen is usually due to loading issues - make sure you have network connection on first load!

    Any issues, feel free to PM me.

    Thanks!

    thank you so much for taking the time and bringing this over to the playbook. It's highly appreciated by many of us!! It runs great just had a little trouble with the white screen but if you reboot the playbook it stops. Thanks again

    Hello again,

    By request of the original developer of Canabalt, my app has been removed from BlackBerry App World.

    I will soon be contacting some other popular game developers and see what other games I can put on this platform.

    I'm sorry for any inconvenience this has caused, but I had no choice.

    Thanks,

    Interesting. I thought it may have been ported without the permission of the original developer but remembered reading that he had made it open source so I didn't think much of it.

    It's unfortunate and I'm sure you had the best of intentions. Looks like I won't be uninstalling it for a while :P

    I'm sorry, if I could have it any other way I would. The law is not on my side I'm afraid!

    Enjoy it and don't uninstall it. If you need the bar file at some point, I can sort it out privately.

    Excuse me? I never did anything wrong - I never claimed the game was mine, the app even said when you opened it that the game was not mine and that the game was by semi-secret software!

    I spoke to Adam, the creator, he didn't threaten me, or hold any grudges. Let me quote him...

    "Hey thanks! I appreciate it. Normally it wouldn't bug me that much but... "

    The rest is private, I'm not going to leave any more of the email.

    Don't hold grudges against me, I didn't steal anything.

    Its ok its completely understandable. I did see your disclaimer so you covered yourself its not like you were making money off of it. If I recall correctly I thought this game was made open source?? no?? It will make it eventually to the playbook, lets hope Adam is reading this and sees that people love this game and would love to see it on the playbook and future BB10 phones. Lets keep it positive

    If I am unable to download OS 2.0 before leaving for work tomorrow, you can bet this is what my escape from the office will look like as I race home to download it once work is done!

    This is a top notch game. It is really a shame that it is not available to everyone. Maybe the author can rethink the position and add it to AppWorld for 0.99? I'd be more than willing to buy it!

    Me and my friend made the app. It was removed from App World at the creator of the original games request. The app was made by me and a friend, but the creator of Canabalt requested I remove it.

    I'm sorry it was removed, and I wish it didn't have to happen, but it's only fair on the creator, because, afterall, he might want to make it for this platform himself.

    Thanks,

    How can the original dev. retract open source? Is that like an Internet Porn Star wanting all of their pictures pulled down from the net?

    I have Canabalt on my PB but it will no longer load past the intro screen where you are told to tap once to jump and tap twice to go to full screen. I looked for it on App World to see that it was gone.

    What is Open Source anyway if it is not OPEN? Doesn't that mean no restriction to what ever platform it is ported to? Or is it open source as long as it is only on Platform X or Platform Z but not Platform Y? I remember that happening to Virtualization, Microsoft tried to limit license use to the processor and native hard drive partition but got thrown out of court and laughed at, now anyone can have Windows on a Mac as long as they have a valid license; a license is a license regardless of platform and all of the case history proves that out!


    I would have told the guy OH WELL you made it OPEN SOURCE so sue me and let a judge decide and he will be told by the judge OH WELL just like all of the other cases that tried to retract OPEN SOURCE!

    Let the cows out and they will eat grass
