We here at Taptoon Games are pleased to finally show off our big update to ACME Planetary Defense. We have been working on this update for about 6 months now. We also took a couple of months off. The main reason why the update has taken so long is because the ENTIRE game has been re coded. While the old game ran okay, if we wanted to try and add in anything new we would of seen a lot of issues. Since we wanted to put in boss battles and have more depth to the game we knew that we were going to have to either tweak everything or just start over. So we started over. As I said this is an update, so if you have bought or want to try it out you will be getting all these changes for free. Otherwise cough up a whole dollar for this amazing game!

We still stand by our original intent to not have any IAP and once you buy the game you get the game. Again, the game cost a buck.

Here is a list of some of the major changes we have added

-3 Boss Battles
-Added in experience
-Added in a combo system
-New ways to control the game with analog, joystick, and tilt
-Super fast menus now, no more load time inbetween menus
-Store allows you to purchase items with experience points
-New store items to buy
-Ability to unlock planets with money
-Store is now accessed in the main menu and unlocks are permanent
-Links to Facebook and to rate the game
-2 new game types(Story, Evacuation)
-New enemies
-You can now choose which invasion you want to start on after you have reached that invasion
-POWER WEAPON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gameplay is still the same spin, shoot, kill, collect. We have updated all of our graphics and have polished up all the explosions. Most of the graphics have been redone or reworked for a more refined and professional look. We hope that you guys enjoyed the game before because it is only going to get better.

If you would like to be opted in to our beta please like us on Facebook, there we will be giving instructions on how to get to into beta once we open it up.

The game now runs in our website vs dropbox so it should speed up the download process. There is now a quick and fast comment block to be able to leave feedback for us if there is anything you like or dislike. We just ask for an email and name so we can respond to each person with great feedback for us. There is also some changes but mostly optimizing changes for mobile.

Change log:
- new text image effects
- fixed rockets coming in backwards
- increased the amount of damage the power weapon does to bosses by 200%
- fixed the rockets from the 1st mini boss coming in backwards
- changed the super weapon effects for the 1st and 3rd planet
- added in a comment section to the bottom of the webpage for quick and easy feedback

Hope you enjoy!

Sorry to go off-topic, but that reminded me. There should be a good Roadrunner game around here!

So we have decided to change up the game play a bit. Now as you progress through the game you will unlock new weapons and items to use. This makes the game feel so much better and rewarding for playing into each new planet. Each planet will give you 2 new unlocks but the first will give you 3. You can also purchase the unlocks sooner with in game credits.
