A major update for Storm Attack is on its way. The update is free and includes, among other things, 2 new game modes. We’ll be releasing details every day through Saturday, November 14th, when we submit the update to Apple. Each new piece of information will be brought to you by an adorable little dog. Details below:

New Game Mode #1
3-Color Mode
Play with 3 blocks instead of 2! A bit harder than 2-Color Mode.
Goodie #1 (fan request)
Customizable Colors
You can now choose your own block colors from within the 'Settings' tab.
Goodie #2 (fan request)
Advanced Difficulty
Players can now begin at level 10 in any game mode.
Goodie #3
6 New Awards
3 for each new game mode.
New Game Mode #2
Bomb Mode(of all the additions, this one is my personal favorite...)
A bomb falls during the middle of each level. Defuse it, or face a massive storm.

Easter Egg Opportunity (Note: Requests must be received by 10pm CST on Friday, 11/13)
We’re also sneaking in an Easter Egg that everybody can partake in. When unlocked, the game will give a shout-out to a list of people. If you’d like to be on that list, just post here or send me a PM saying that you’d like to be on it! We’ll use your TA user name unless you specify something else. Once the update is out, I will PM all participants with details on how to unlock the secret. Non-participants may receive a hint or two...

Other Notes
Two of the above features, as noted, made the cut for this update due to fan request. Additionally, a crash bug was located and fixed with the help of a user review. I like hearing from fans! If you have any feedback or suggestions for improvements, feel free to post here, send me a PM, or email mike_w@rnrstudios.com - I promise to respond quickly!

Additionally, if you own Storm Attack and really enjoy it, please consider nominating it as a "Monthly Hidden Gem" in this thread and/or for consideration on "The List" in this thread.

I've received a lot of support and positive feedback from TA members - thank you all! For those of you who have Storm Attack, I hope you're still enjoying it. This update should make it even better.

Custom Colors


Choose your own colors!

Introducing: customizable colors! Players can now choose their own block colors, even while in-game. Personally, I've become a fan of a purple/light-blue color scheme, but that's just me.

Remember, if you want to be listed on the Easter Egg, you must submit your request by 10pm CST on Friday, November 13th.

Bomb Mode!


KA-BOOM

Introducing... Bomb Mode! I've spent more time than is healthy playing this.

Here's what's up: a bomb falls during the middle of each level. If it's not defused in time, you'll face a massive storm. You can defuse a bomb simply by tapping on it, but you'll need more and more ammo to do so as the game goes on.
