I just read the following info from the papa sangre blog. According to the
entry, those of us that have the 3rd generation iPod touches are out of
luck. All they say is they can't make it work on these devices. I don't
really understand why it would run fine on an iPhone 3gs and not on the 3rd
gen iPod touch. Guess it's got something to do with the processor. IN any
case I am very disappointed, as I was really looking forward to this game
but I do not have the funds to run out and buy the 4th gen iPod.
Anyway, here's the entry.

December 6th, 2010
We've had a lot of contact recently asking if people will be able to use
Papa Sangre on their device - so here's the coup.
First of all, you'll need an iOS device - we will not initially be
supporting Android devices at all. This is because the binaural engine we
are using in the game is incredibly demanding on a processor. Apple's iOS 4
includes a maths library called "Accelerate," which helps programmers speed
up their floating point calculations. Without this, we couldn't bring Papa
Sangre to you at all. Once version 1 is out, we're going to look at porting
Papa Sangre to Android - we're more likely to do so if you tell us you want
Secondly, you'll need to be running iOS v4.1 at least. Fire up iTunes,
connect your device, and under the Info pane for your device, check you have
the latest version of iOS.
Thirdly, you'll need to be running an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch (4th
generation) or iPad .
. to be clear, Papa Sangre does NOT support the original iPhone, iPhone 3G
or any iPod touch but the current version. We wish it did, but we just can't
make it work with stability on those devices.
If you have a 4th generation device, we're able to unlock even more audio
goodness, similar to how powerful graphics cards on computers give you
greater textures or frame rates. In our case this means 'procedural reverb'
that gives you more detail and realism about the size and shape of room
you're in. Papa Sangre is super-cool without this, but super-cooler on an
iPhone 4 basically.
Watch this space for pricing and exact release date information.
