new patch out

Hi folks,

I'd just like to add I've released an update to planet wars that corporates some of your suggestions and also fixes a lot of problems.

The game now has dual virtual stick control options, as well as the original options (and also a stick-to-move, touch-to-fire control option if you want to mix n match ).

I also fixed the game freezes that were a large problem in the last version, and the aliens that got stuck and wouldn't die.

I'll carry on listening to suggests and if possible implement them in future versions.

New control method is much better!

But, now that controls and bugs are ironed out, I think level 7 needs some tweaking... It's just too long and hard as a result of the length. I don't mind surviving but surviving waves of enemy onslaught for 6 minutes feels too long. Shortening it to like 4 minutes would be nice.

where was this game when i had a buck to spend on the first random thing that appeared? D: (bought Jewel Fighter with it)

Once I get a new card, I'll buy this game since reading the comments seems it's a good game that deserves the money... added to my wish list... for now...

Ok, I'll see what I can do about this in the next update.

Wicked game... Stumbled across this today and love it. Reading back through this thread apparently there was some control issues(?) They must've been fixed cause the (updated) default duel stick controls I used worked perfectly. Somebody also mentioned iap, the current method of iap used is the perfect kind in my opinion, all non consumable and NOTHING that's needed to complete the game at all. Just things like 'earn double coins' or unlock all weapons' which some people might like, and others can choose to completely ignore them and play the game as it was intended to be played (by unlocking weapon parts progressively as you play) which is the reason we continue to play and come back to a good game time and time again anyway, right? For the sense of progression and the tease of 'I'll play a bit more then I'll have enough to buy that, oh and that too'. I just wanted to hopefully clarify a few things in case anyone else was turned off from reading earlier posts as it'd be a shame if this didn't get the attention it deserves. Hope this helps a little.

too bad I didn't have the game installed before the update hit... gonna have to keep a backup of the previous version on my PC (because of the extra currency, not because of added ads - I haven't seen any, just to be clear)... =oP
