Played it, and the game has just become from above-average to outstanding!

It's amazing how such a little tweak can make all the difference. Manual laser fire gives me a greater feeling of control, and also improves gameplay as it reduces all the clutter on the screen, I can dodge enemies easier!

Continuing from last level should have been added in the first place.

I'm happy now!

Thanks for the fast update!

This has to be one of the fastest updates ever, completely addressing fans requests, and it isn't even a bug fix(As there were no bugs to be fixed).

Rebel Onslaught update 1.1

Yep RO just got a nice update: Barrel rolls, manual firing and better level progression. (you can progress from the last beaten level) Well that's pretty much what every one was asking for. Haven't tried it yet but I'm stoked. Ah by the way I'm a new member. I've been a bit of a lurker, checking in 4 times a day. Anyway, what do you guys think?

P.s. Written on my phone so I apologize for any mistakes.

thanks redstar for moving my post and a warm welcome. So I played a bit I think it all was implemented well. It felt pretty natural doing barrel rolls. It's one of my favorite games.I like the starfox similarities. I would like to see some midlevel bosses or some midlevel events like a rival aircraft maybe a bit like starwolf or perhaps saving an ally. That would make this even better.
