After much thought, we decided to drop support for some platforms and discontinue some versions of Dogfight. These are:

1) Dogfight (pre-paid) on Android. The only difference with the regular version is that it has no ads. This version was created because some countries do not allow in-app purchases, so they couldn't upgrade the game even if they wanted. But it has created several issues:
- Many people buy pre-paid believing that they will have more airplanes or more stuff in general and then get dissapointed.
- Some get the pre-paid version and when purchasing a new phone they download the free version. They see ads and believe that they have to buy it again without realizing that they are two different programs in the store.
- It is hard to also keep updating both versions at the same time when they are essentially equal.

2) Dogfight for Windows 8. Notice it is Windows 8 and not Windows 8.1. Microsoft fixed many things on Windows 8.1 and some features that essential to game playing are only available on Windows 8.1. Therefore, since Windows 8.1 is a free upgrade from Microsoft and it adds many improvements, we will drop support from the previous version. You can easily upgrade to Windows 8.1 by going into the Store icon of your Windows main screen.

3) Dogfight for Ouya. We were very excited about porting Dogfight for Ouya but the experience has been horrible. Less than 20 people play Dogfight from that system. Ouya is slower than a Samsung Galaxy 2. It is not intuitive neither user friendly. It short. Our Ouya has been in the box for over 3 months and we have spent a considerable amount of resources to port it to that system. What's worse, the few people that use it to play Dogfight mostly complain about the experience. Until Ouya releases a better console or we discover a huge player community on it, we have little options but to drop support on that platform.

Now... is there any platform you would like us adding Dogfight for? We would think about it if the interest is big enough.
