So, after what seems like an incredibly long wait, we’ve finally finished Save the Pencil 2. And by finished we mean completely finished, tested and ready to submit to the Appstore, which we’ll be doing shortly. We’ve had people asking us almost every day for the past year, and we’re incredibly sorry it’s taken so long, but we really hope you all like what we’ve come up with….
We don’t want to spoil the surprise too much, but Save the Pencil 2 brings a host of new features….new levels (of course!), new dots, enemies you can interact with and more, all packaged up in a far more graphically advanced format. There’s new playable characters like before, but this time they have their own characteristics and some even have super powers!!!
We’ve also worked a lot on the code behind the scenes, which should result in superior gameplay. We’ve included support for iPhone 5 and added iCloud syncing, so you can play on your iPad, then pick up where you left off on your iPhone.
As soon as we have a firm release date we’ll post an update…stay tuned to our Twitter feed and Facebook page for the latest news!
It’s getting to that time where we begin to switch our focus away from Save The Pencil and towards Save The Pencil 2, which we hope to launch later in the year. Development is in the very early stages, and there are already some significant changes, but we want to know how we can improve it further to make Save The Pencil 2 the best game on iOS!
That’s where you, the Save The Pencil community, come in. We want to know all your ideas for Save The Pencil 2. This can be anything from a totally new concept of play, to simply a new type of character or enemy. Let us know what you love about Save The Pencil, and what you don’t like so much?
Please comment below… we value all your feedback, and who knows, you may see your ideas realized on your iPhone/iPad screen when Save the Pencil 2 is released!
As always, a big thank you from Perfect Dimension for being such a great, supportive community.

Now you’re on the latest version, you should have noticed a new blue icon on the home screen. This is the P4RC button, and it controls you’re entire P4RC experience. It’s that simple. Make sure you have an internet connection, then tap the button to bring up the P4RC info page. From here, tap ‘Sign Up’ near the top of the screen which will take you to a P4RC sign up page.
From here you can create a new P4RC account, or if you already have a Facebook account, just log in directly with that instead. Don’t forget to check the Terms and Conditions check box before clicking Login. Once completed you’ll remain logged in until you log out, and all your future Save The Pencil points earned will earn you P4RC points.
So how do you know how many points you’re earning? When you successfully complete a level you should see your new P4RC points on the summary screen. If you don’t have a connection to the internet you may not see your points earned, but fear not, if they can’t be sent at that time, they are stored locally and will be uploaded to the P4RC server as soon as your connection returns! You’ll also see a ‘tap to redeem’ message and the P4RC button. You don’t need to tap the button to store your points, it is simply there for your convenience – allowing you to check your overall points total or even better, spend those hard earned points whenever you like.
The higher your level score in Save The Pencil, the more P4RC points you’ll earn, but that’s not all. Levels have been weighted by difficulty, so on harder levels there’s more P4RC points up for grabs. Master the hard levels and you’ll see your P4RC points total soar!
Note:- To change your region for P4RC rewards tap the P4RC button, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will see the region select menu as pictured above. If you’re region is not yet currently supported, don’t worry. You can continue to collect P4RC points to use at a later date when P4RC expands.
We hope you like this new addition as much as we do. It’s great to know that our Save The Pencil players are now not only having fun, but also being rewarded whilst playing! Don’t forget, you can also visit P4RC.com to redeem earned points and find out more!
