Hey all, I wrote a blog post yesterday about the changes we are adding in the second update.
Full post here: http://breachent.com/blog/we-are-just-getting-started

Quote:
In the next update that we are currently working on, we respond to some of the main criticism. The game does feel a bit too slow paced for some players. We thought about ways to make the game faster and reduce the waiting times when moving in the game world.

Here is the list of changes:

- Dash ability
- Activates on double-tap
- Transforms Dawn into a glowing ball
- Movement speed doubled
- Dashing uses energy which drains over time
- Energy is fully restored when Dawn is inside a beacon
- Dashing can be used freely when in the Hub
- Monsters are killed instantly from a distance when Dawn is in the beacon area
- There is no longer need to wait at a beacon for the monster to run closer
- Dawn and Monster running speeds increased by 20%
- Teleportation wait time halved
- Some difficulty tweaks to all levels (Dashing will be required to overcome some obstacles)
The first update is still waiting for Apple's review, but it should come available during the next week.

Amazing update I must say. My No.1 complaint was also the game felt 'too slow'. Should have a better pacing now! Also, like the guy above says rather aptly, a f*cking good new icon (which btw was my second big complaint).

Next, I am hoping for a wider array of puzzles.

Keep having trouble with the Mine level. End up getting stuck behind a door with some lasers that you can turn on but no apparent way to turn them in different directions. And whether you turn them on or off, the door out stays closed. Did I miss something?

Edit: NM, I finally figured it out.

I am stuck there too -- the one side won't turn on OR I can't figure out how to get the beam across the other side Feels early in the game to get stuck! I hope this is a fluke. I like challenging but not impossible.
