Polish. Polish everywhere.

Build Date

At the beginning of 00000000.app is a version string which includes a build date—the final game appears to have been built at 12:48 PM on August 13, 2012.


Development Text

The game's assets, located in 00000002.app, are gzipped. Several are text-based and human-readable.

Translation Guide

The file /data/data/translation.csv is a list of comma-separated values to use for each language's translation. The game was only released in North America, so only the English values have been filled. However, several example strings are included at the beginning. To various degrees, the non-Polish values are nonsense, so it's likely that they're all machine-translated.
