Gameloft updates Tintin game after accidentally delivering 2D to devices
If you're like us, you may have jumped all over that Gameloft 99 cent deal over the past week, and if you're like us you may have noticed that the Tintin HD game wasn't so much HD as it was 16-bit. Don't get us wrong, the game was still quite fun, and since we hadn't paid the full $6.99 for the game, we didn't question it at first. But, it turns out that was definitely a mistake and one that Gameloft has corrected. 

Gameloft updates Tintin game after accidentally delivering 2D to devices
The trouble was simple, the APK read the device data wrong on some handsets and tablets and delivered the 2D version of The Adventures of Tintin instead of the 3D version that was pictured in the Android Market. This caused a landslide of bad reviews for the game, and Gameloft acted pretty quickly to fix the problem, by pushing an update to the Android Market. Although, it should be noted that while Gameloft has fixed the issue for many devices, there are some that still haven't gotten the fix. Gameloft set up a list of devices that should have gotten the update. 

If your device isn't on the list, Gameloft is issuing refunds to users. In case you uninstalled the game when having this problem, you can download it again from the Android Market, of course if you already got a refund, you will have to pay the full $6.99 for the game now that the sale is over.

I was one of those that got the 2D version of the game on my Galaxy Nexus. A few days later got the patch and the game is in 3D now.
