Now that I've actually played it, some feedback on the 1.0.3 update:
- Survival mode I always start out with the uber-laser, and it doesn't go away unless I stop shooting. Kind of an unfair advantage. (Bug with the new laser-not-going-away-with-new-weapon code?)
- Where did the sharks go? I'm all for new content, but I kind of miss that level, despite the inordinate amount of frustration it could cause. Granted, Tron makes more sense for that villain...
- Tron kind of gives me a headache. It's so incredibly bright
. I suspect I'll get used to it, but initially at least I was overwhelmed.
- I approve of the mines as a bonus weapon (pick up so many of them). But laying the mines while simultaneously shooting? Maybe I just think it's weird because it's new, and it works balance-wise better. Haven't played it enough yet.
I wish I hadn't replaced 1.0.2 with 1.0.3. It would be nice to be able to play the different version when I'm in the mood for the different content/weapons. Fortunately, I figured out how to download the old version from Freeverse's download server, so life will be better in 10 minutes or so.
