Super Mega Bob is a reflection of my childhood – an awesome childhood fueled by games like Mega Man, The Legend of Zelda, Adventures of Lolo, and Kirby! A 16-bit style 2D shooter filled with enemies, levels, upgrades, and awesome bosses, Super Mega Bob is a combination of all the stuff that make classic games so rockin’ along with some newer concepts that help gameplay seem completely smooth. Super Mega Bob has been in development since Fall of 2013 with a projected release date some time towards the Fall of 2014. What are you waiting for? Join the BOBOCALYPSE!
Super Mega Bob version 0.2.1 has just been submitted to Desura for approval, and I must say that I'm very excited about this particular update. For one thing, it's the first update through Desura - and it will be the first of many to come! If you haven't already downloaded super Mega Bob Beta for free, make sure to grab it now!
SMB Beta 0.2.1 brings a few new things to the table that should prove quite enjoyable for players. Perhaps the most notable feature is the beginning of the in-game weather system. As of now I've managed to add some very nice looking rain, which works beautifully with the already existing day/night cycle in the game.
The second change is the addition of some more story material. I've added some new in-game movies which play at the end of specific levels. If you've already completed the game, don't worry: a special "Story Movie" tag appears on the mission select screen, so you can replay levels that have stories at the end. The stories will keep the same simple, childish "story book" look of the intro movie. I feel like it fits the best with the overall theme and feeling of the game, and reflect Bob's innocence.
The final part of the update is something I know everyone will enjoy. . . five brand new levels to challenge your 2D shooting prowess! One of the levels in particular is quite challenging. It's the first one that I feel like has really nailed the action/puzzle combo of the game. You can't just go shooting willy-nilly through the level, but instead have to really observe the patterns closely and come up with a set course of action. I found only one good method of getting through the level, and missed the bonus coins at that. Pretty darn fun!
Please connect with me through Twitter while you're here and I hope you enjoy the update!

@joeb3219 Call of Duty developers received death threats after changing the reload time on a gun. Ridiculous!

@joeb3219 I totally understand why they can become that way, I just don't want to be that way. Ever! ;D lol But I know what you mean :)

On a kind of random note. . . I hope that if I ever succeed as a #GameDev I never come across in the mean and jerky ways some others do XD
