Blue Defense! 2.0 is Coming...

http://sprite.digitalseraph.net/inde...y=200901271810



I just submitted my App to iTunes, and I'm pretty proud of it. If you already liked Blue Defense, this update will blow your mind out of the water.

Here's a sneak peek at what's new:

-Sound & Music
-Level Select mode
-Quick Start mode
-Global high scores


I've also put some challenging new levels in the game, and the UI has almost everything that people asked for since its release.

you can
-turn off vibration
-retrieve your old high scores from the internet if you needed to reinstall for whatever reason (will also help for people going from Lite to full version)
-clear the local high scores list if you want
-open up a mini strategy guide that explains scoring, enemy names, and basic strategy
-look at high scores in the MIDDLE of a game


Quick start mode allows you to start the game from the random level area, rather than the agonizingly slow first-four level progression in the original Blue Defense.

Level select mode allows you to practice any level in the game, and keeps track of which levels you've beaten in a color-coded way. Red is not beaten, blue is beaten, and green is if you've earned the "medal" for that level.


The update ought to come out early next week, and the Lite version should be out shortly after that.

If you didn't try Blue Defense before, next week is your perfect chance - Go get the Lite version when it comes out, and give it a chance!

Blue Detente, it's more of a koi pond kind of game.. just the red and blue ships milling about each other..

Either there'll be Red games... or they'll join to become the Purple when the scourge of the Green appears to attack them both
