Update!

I've been working hard on Shooty Space, and I thought I'd share one of the ships I added last night. If you're curious what the early stages of the game looked like, I've added "Proto Shooty", which recreates the art I used in the very first prototype.

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for the offer to help me out. I've just pushed out the new iOS version. Unfortunately no Android update just yet.

You'll notice the name has been changed in the latest build to 'Astro Attack'

I'm very keen to know what everyone thinks

Ok,

I've been playing it. If you could t tell from my blown up Twitter feed. Lol. I do have a question with the random ship pulls. I've gotten the same sloth ship 4 times in a row. Has anyone else experienced this? I've been playing like crazy but I've only unlocked two different ships. The retro and the sloth.

Other than this I love the game. I love the old school gameplay. Really fun!

Hey Billy!

It's all together possible you've just been very unlucky. Don't worry though, I do keep track of how many times you've missed out, and eventually make sure you get something new. There aren't that many ships at the moment, which also would be making it even more likely to get a double up. I'm planning to have about 40 ships at release, so there should be plenty of new ships to get

If you keep getting the same ship, let me know, because then it might very well be a bug!

I absolutely loved the game! The crossy road like business model is very nice and I can tell that everything I see is 2.5 d (the wakka ship tilts when I strafe) keep up the good work! I hope for the best
