Many, many months ago, an update with a new zone was supposed to come. I hope this update doesn't die in the same way as the last update did.

Hi VirtualBoyFreak,

yes, you are right, in that moment I just started a new job in a company and I left completely my own games.

Now I have established myself like a independent developer and now I can continue with new and old projects.

I can assure you that this new update will be available soon ( I am working right now on it), not new scenario, but like I said in the post, new aircrafts, new obstacles, GameCenter support, etc....

But of course new scenarios will be in future updates.

I hope clarify your post

Best.

Hi Qwertz555, thanks a lot, I am really happy that you enjoyed a lot with the game.

This is an update, not new app. I hope that you enjoy again and now with Game Center Leaderboards we can challenge between us .

The 1.1 version is from Updated: Jan 07, 2012, and yeah, is long time, but like I explained in the previous post to VirtualBoyFreak, I started to work in a new company and I left completely my own games.

Thanks again friend.

Best.

Loaded and fired it up again, yeah still a fun game. Though it's not iphone5 screen size, it doesn't hinder me to enjoy it again. Even tilt controls work fine in this game, but i definitely stick to the top-notch relative touch.

While playing now, the fire button gets in the way badly, even the big one on the bottom. Wasn't too bad back in those (ios) days, but...will we have the option to customize it, to place it where we want ? Auto-fire option ? (People gonna ask if you don't have it, i guess). Can we go beneath obstacles ?

Ok, i stop and go back to play some more. Very looking forward and hey, it's 2014, so there are iap's, please don't forget to implement a coin doubler, so i can support you again.

Hi,

christopherrocs:
The version 1.1 (the one that is on Apple Store now, works in iPod Touch 4th Gen), I can record a video for you if you want to see that works. With the new update I am trying to keep that runs in the same devices, but of course, without new filters and visual improvements , but I am trying to optimize a bit more the game for old devices, I hope everything will work correctly, I will post here the advances in that field if you want . You will need to have at least iOS 5 to play.

Qwertz555:
Hey man, I am glad that you enjoy the game again, thanks!!.

About your questions:

- Now the gameplay scheme controls has been simplified to only 2 schemes ( TILT and Small Shoot Button controls, the most used by the people) BUT with the option of AUTO-FIRE if you want .

- You can not to position the button where you want, sorry . But if you choose AUTO-FIRE, the fire button will not appear, of course.

- About going beneath obstacles, the answer is NO, but, in this update, in the next one, who knows

- About IAP, really I don't want to use IAP in my games, I am a developer from long years ago, and I grew up playing the arcade machines, and I believe in players that want to pay really small prices ($0.99) but have a complete game with free updates, I don't know if I will need to use IAP in the future, but for now, I want to avoid them if is possible.

Thanks again for your support friend, much appreciated.

Best

(Holding my breath and typing with shaky fingers)
...and the second will be relative touch control as it is now, i hope !?!
Don't change that!, please.
At least here on Toucharcade, most people prefere relative touch and definitely not tilt, imho. Doesn't matter how good they are.

Nice to have auto-fire. Depending on the game (scoring system/bullets management/etc.) i like to have this option. If you didn't change anything in this update, i put them on, for sure. A button less.

And not being able to customize the buttons...it's one thing on an iphone, but a lot developers forget about the ipads. I read a lot of times how awkward they are set, specially on the big ipads. Like they were never testing their own game on different devices.

To all Devs who read this side note:
Is it a matter of difficulty, MB size or just lazyness ? Buttons customization should be given in any game that uses them, no matter how convinced the Devs are by themselves. Make your paying customers happy.

Sent to fast...great to hear about the three most hated letters in gaming history - iap. None here.
