I should be able to add a relative touch option (probably as a checkbox which will alter the touch dynamic mode). My reasoning for not doing it initially was trying to keep different versions of the game at a similar balance (ie. gamepad on a microconsole being the same as playing on an iPhone) but that's probably detrimental.

Also the worm boss disappearing for long periods of time shouldn't happen, he should only be off the screen for a few seconds at most while he turns around. That's on my list to fix too

Ok, i re-downloaded and re-booted/started the game once more, but the trouble with the bosses are the same. And here i have to correct myself: Every 5th stage there is a boss fight (not every 10th). At stage 25 the latest, you will get in trouble with either control option. To dodge the homing-missiles of the boss, the lack of precision is clear. Btw, after disapearing, they are in the middle of the top screen. You see the tail but they won't take a hit. After a while they come back normal at you and for the last few needed hits, they stay again at the middle top, but this time you can finish them off. Talking about those long "snake" bosses.

Adress a relative touch control option (not the one your ship is hiding under the finger, think "Cave" shmups) and the waiting for the bosses, and then i can recommend it easily to all shooter fans out there.

Thanks Devs for looking into it.

PS: you made "Pyramus" right ? Great game.

Default Arc War Version 1.01

Hey guys,

Arc War has been updated to version 1.01 on the app store. You can now enable relative touch in the settings. I agree this is a much nicer control mode for touch screens

The worm boss bug is also fixed, so you shouldn't have to wait around to finish killing him now

Let us know what you think!

Worm boss dies as he should now and the relative touch controls work perfectly. What a difference, right ? Great improvement indeed. Thanks.

Apart from some of the not so great sfx sounds (subjective of course), i'm glad i bought your game to save me over a bit until the next big shooter appears.

After the let down of Touch Force being so short, Arc War is calling my name with its endless mode.

Are there any more impressions out there?

I really wish this could be played in portrait mode. I feel like all shumps should be.

Yeah, I saw that. Was kind of on the fence on this along with the lukewarm response here. Might have to reconsider.
