1.1 Update, and suggestions.
::: Revision :::
Think my iPad somehow downloaded the previous version when I tapped to download the update. Said I had an update a few minutes after I wrote the below.
Great updates! :-)
Love the game!
A little confused about the update.
I don't see where to set Easy/Hard mode. I can't tell the difference in the updated version.
What is a "Parallax Display"? I can't tell a difference with it on or off.
I love how the game gets harder when you beat the all the levels. Would like "hard mode" to be enabled this way, and be able to continue in hard mode even after being killed. Maybe add a badge to the stage that has been enabled in hard mode to know where you left off.
Rings should stay active until ship is destroyed regardless if the stage has been cleared.
When capturing an item with he gravity gun, it should act as a directional shield that can take a hit (and be destroyed when it does), the bigger the item the more hits it can take.
When shooting an ice meteor at a fire meteor (and vice versa), it should cause massive damage to the fire meteor (and even bulldoze others in the path? Getting smaller and doing less damage the more items it hits). Causing a fireworks display when doing so would be awesome! :-)
Would love to see a bonus item that, for a limited time, causes all weapons to be fired at once!
A beautiful piece of programming but hard to play
There's eveything to like and virtually nothing to dislike about this beautiful game. You know the genre and it is clear about what it is--a combination of Asteroids and Robotron with gorgeous graphics and power-ups. This is one high quality piece of work--I just wish that I could get the hang of the left movement control which seemed "sticky" to me. Moreover, because of all of the power-up and bomb/special ability options, the right side of the controls take a little getting used to but the left movement control gave me the most trouble. Either I need to practice hella more or the control really is sticky. After I spend more time with it and find that I've mastered that control, I will definitely raise my rating to 5 stars. Keep in mind that Meteor Blitz HD is still better than most of the estimated 50-60 games that I've purchased from iTunes over the years.
When I first got this game I felt feh about it. I was wowed by the graphics, but what I really wanted was geometry wars. After buying and playing GW Touch I came back to Meteor Blitz, and MB is by far the best version of one of these games I've played.
The controls are fantastic, the first set of onscreen joysticks I've used that have become intuitive. Don't even have to think about the controls, I got used to them so quickly.
The graphics are awesome, very crisp and vivid. I love the fire gun. The guns seem to be more about 'pick your playing style', and for me I liken up close aggressive nature of the fire gun.
Auto-pause is a genius feature and I love you for it.
All in all, this is probably my favorite single player iPad game.
