Everything was going fine in the campaign until I got to the Calypso mission. It takes me so long to kill the big ships that by the time I shoot one down, two or three more have spawned and are firing at and/or colliding with my colony. The only way I can survive for any length of time is by intentionally colliding with them when they spawn, but this leaves me with too little life to survive the second half of the mission. My special can help to take a few ships down too, but it doesn't take long before they spawn more and I'm stuck with the same problem. I try to lay down a ring of shields around my colony, but it doesn't take them very many shots to punch a hole through it. I tried starting over with a Defender, but the ships just collide with the turrets I set up and destroy them before they do any good. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Caine, yes. You can play the campaign mode "solo" or co-op and also you can play all the unlockable modes by yourself.

Thanks for tracking!

I updated today and it works now for me. Thank you for fixing the bug, but i have to agree with Logan2002, it really took a long time. Anyways, thanks again, good luck with the game.

I cannot get it to work on XBox 360 either. It crashes before it even starts. What's up with that?

That's weird, I got it on xbox 360 too and works perfectly and a few friends of mine also got it and works fine too.

What version of xbox do you have?

I'm uploading a new version (I believed the crash was caused by a Gamer Services component in the initialization), meanwhile if you want it to work you can install the developer version of XNA (instead of the redistributable version, which is what the setup install).

Can't really give it more than a 1, as it won't even load on my machine. I know, it's 'bad form' to do that, but if I can't play it, I can't give it a proper rating.

I think it's abismal that it just doesn't seem to work, and I don't know what's going on.
