Some updates to kick off 2020!

First, special thanks to MobyGames contributor hoeksmas, who added hundreds of lesser known Apple II games and screenshots to the database! Helping make MobyGames the most accurate and complete collection of games published for the Apple II.

Now onto site updates:

  • Optimized API queries (approx. 15x faster!)
  • Behind the scenes infrastructure work for the API (moving to a new system soon that's easier to scale and develop)
  • Improved page responsiveness for smaller screens (mobile)
  • SEO tweaks to hopefully help improve our results on Google (if you're an SEO wizard and have any suggestions, please contact me)
  • Changed credits display on combined game pages to show credits for the first release (was showing info from the first platform, alphabetically)
  • Removed critic/user score overview section from game pages (discussion)
  • Fixed combined game pages that were displaying the first alphabetical platform and release date in the page title
  • Fixed issue with forms getting improperly cached

Glad to see there's a work on MobyGames again. Hip hip hooray!!

Really looking forward to the new system :)

I have a feeling 2020 is going to be a great year... and not just because PS5 is coming out ;))

Nice work everyone. I just hope you will restore the critic/user score overview section.

Happy new decade full of happiness and prosperity.

I also noticed the Switch promoshot now get automatically grabbed when scraping, instead of adding them manually. Nice
