Blue Attack is an absolutely fantastic game. Anyone who doesn't have it should pick it up. I spent hours playing the survival mode. The gameplay is very finely tuned, the upgrades are fantastic, the amount of time you can spend upgrading your ship in one survival play through is addicting, and the graphics are the best I've seen in this genre. The only thing that would make this game better is a story based game mode where you started with a weak ship and took it through a campain/storyline (with specific missions,) upgrading as you went. As is, though, the survival mode is more than worth the price.

Is Blue Attack anything like Isotope? I was thinking of getting Isotope until I saw this sale- now I am hoping to save $1.99 by just getting Blue Attack haha

Yes, blue attack is the same genre as Isotope. I would say the upgrades in Blue Attack have more of an impact on the game, but Isotope have more upgrades overall.

Also, Blue Attack have waaaay crazier enemies! A bunch of them doesn't fit on the screen. One I remember is like... 2 screens wide and 1 screen high.

I have both, and I actually found Blue Defense to be better. If Attach was updated with Isotope-like controls, I would love it though.

sorry, no new version - Blue Defense was already 2.0 before the price drop!

This is just a one-week promo thing... by the end of the day tomorrow, they'll be back up at $2... *gasp*

Hmm, maybe I'll have to check out this Isotope game.

yeah, some of them are ridiculous... if my graphics engine were any more powerful (which it could be... I'm still tuning it up for the next game!), Blue Attack's enemies would have been even bigger and more complicated.

I especially like the big mean guy that just sits there, with two giant claws around the mothership, staring it down. I think he's the second last level on the easy path.

ooh, or the one on the hard path that completely encircles your mothership!

does anyone think it's weird that I still get excited over my own game months after I released it? I still come back to it every now and then. I'm nowhere near good enough to be on the leaderboards anymore though.
