Winter Wolves recently released an updated version of Supernova: Galactic Wars, their space based strategy game for both PPC and Intel-based Macs. Version 1.1.3 features several bug fixes as well as the introduction of a new Survival Battle mode which requires players to survive as long as possible against an unlimited horde of enemies.

Featuring Story Mode, Quickbattle and Survival Mode (registered users only). In Story Mode you'll lead your faction to the conquest of the galaxy, destroying the opposition. In Quickbattle you'll be able to setup a custom match choosing from 5 different maps (each one with different playing strategy) and build your own fleet ship to ship. In Survival Mode you'll have to take control of the faction Mothership and survive as long as possible vs unlimited enemies.
