Normally I wouldn't of clicked on a game that has an avatar of a thumb to be honest but this time I did and the game looks great. Not that I have ever seen an avatar with that before lol

Hi, 0Hayes!

Having fun with this. Been trying to beat the boss that comes straight at you but I always die. Using missiles and reloading as fast as possible too.

Do different ships have better/stronger weapons, or is everything cosmetic only?

Ah yeah, mods are essentially a shortcut to the harder difficulties. Particularly useful for getting a higher score =P

I like that, Pylon didn't get too much love during testing. It's nice to see it getting some play.

Fantastic, can't argue with that! You'll have to let me know what you think. Thumbkind is relying on you after all.

Hi Mike!

Awesome news. Ah yeah the big blue shield elite, sometimes I find it easier to recruit an index finger and go pedal to the metal with that!

As for ships, their all cosmetic. Weapons on the other hand are the main variable, I'd advise trying a rapid fire weapon such as a gatling gun or cluster missile against anything with allot of health.

Best of luck in the Thumb War! Thumbkind is relying on you.

love it - completely unexpectedly so. Saw AKD tweet about it and thought 'why not'. My only small inconvenience is the reload at the top of the screen as I use my index finger rather than my thumb. Perhaps that's the point (no pun intended) but overall a neat little game.

Ok, cool! I still haven't unlocked any new weapons (that I know of), but I'm guessing they are in the Loot Drop crates?
