What's New in Version 1.4
- Bug Fixes
Not sure where my original review went but I'm glad that a couple of my suggestions were implemented (piercing on vertical/spinner shot).
Now it seems that cluster bomb is the most underwhelming powerup. It's the powerup on which I most frequently lose my combo. A slight tweak to make the first bomb shot guarantee a one shot kill on the lowest invaders would vastly improve it's reliability. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. I have witnessed a cluster bomb in slow motion colliding with a heart shaped invader only to see the invader survive and my cluster bomb disappear.
There are still times where the invulnerability fails. I'm not sure what the problem with that is.
And let's be real here, nobody actually plays this game sideways. There needs to be an option to allow portrait orientation. A notification on landscape blocks half the screen whereas if portrait orientation was being used, a notification wouldn't block anything.
I love coming back to this game once in a while. Every time I do, I play it over and over again because it's simplistic, fun, fast-paced and utterly challenging.
Wonderful retro 80's style game
Such a great game. If you liked Space Invaders : This is the more charm filled version. A must for any fan of 80's type games
