Retro Update (1.2) + Promo Codes

Hi Folks,

Retro 1.2 has gone live with a number of core updates:

Version 1.2

New / Improvements:

+ Added "EASY" Mode (for laid back funsters!)
+ Timers no longer kill, only add bonus score
+ New responsive controls/physics mode added (heavy/fast) (in options)
+ Collision "Deflection" (bounce) reduced
+ Landing now requires Landing Gear to be extended
+ "Safe" angles for landing adjusted according to difficulty
+ Fuel Burn Rate reduced slightly

Bug Fixes:

+ Sadistic Teleporter in Mission 22 removed
+ You can no longer thrust into deep space.

The price of Retro is set to rise back to 1.79 / $2.99 in a few days, but quick fingered readers needn't be concerned with that as I've got a few (40) codes to give away to the first 40 PM's.


Remember promotional codes can only be used on the US store at the moment, and they expire in 4 weeks.

Finally, we're in the concept stages of planning Retro 2, and are open to suggestions from any and all. We already have a substantial wishlist, but it's always fun to have participation

Retro 2 will be taking the action out of the ship (and away from the Cave Flyer genre) to something that will be more familiar to fans of Exile (the Amiga classic, not the RPG).

Consider (I've already wrote about it):

- in-game arrows or just a full view of the map before the mission starts that includes where astronauts are

- please put back the first Retro game icon!! It was one of the most beautiful in my iPhone and now it's just OK... Old icon, please!!!!

Great update!
