Squids with guns! Pink Robots! Devils from the 4th dimension! Shopping Trolleys and Lasers. When 4 worlds collide, only SYNSO (he's a squid, not an octopus!) can save the day. Psychedelic arena shooter action with visual and aural overload. Just the way sir likes it. Critically acclaimed and star of the Eurogamer Expo 2009 Indie Games Arcade, Squid Harder is an arena shooter like no other.
The first official release of SYNSO:Squid Harder for the PC. See description and readme for changes.
Changes since the beta version:
Changes in scoring: The faster you shoot an enemy, the higher the score. Clear them off before they score low points.
Backgrounds: New background images. Can be turned on/off in the options screen.
New title sequence and game end. Just a little bit flashier.
New enemy: The chaser. Rides the edges of the screen bringing death and destruction to anyone it touches. Ok, it's just a blob but it doesn't hurt to make it sound grandiose. Does not appear in practice mode.
More Motion Blur Options: From none to silliest.
Closed Captions: On screen display of audio cues.
Various misc. bugfixes. Lots. And lots.
Stuff that didn't make the cut in the end:
Extra levels. Sorry. Ran out of ideas and the will to live.
Alternate controls. Tried. Didn't work. Broke the game design. So no go.
Colour blindness support. Broke at the last minute. Took it out. Will patch in at a later date after a small break.
