We've been working hard to get two demo levels available for free so we can get some feedback on the game concept and gameplay.
The battles between the Hero and Aliens has been improved to be very fast and furious with four weapons available to use; rifle, spray gun, missile launcher and a remote mine.
We've also added some detailed map layouts for the levels so the player can more easily deploy their defence assets. The player can view the whole play area and decide where different weapons can be placed to best defend the critical assets on the level;
The player can return to this map whilst fighting a wave of aliens by getting to their nearest terminal in the game scene. The map will show where the aliens are in relation to the critical assets. It will also show the current location of weapons on the level - auto cannons, missile launcher, laser cannon and mines. More new weapons to be added soon - including a Suicide Cannon! A weapon that detonates on a large scale when its regular ammo is depleted.
We've also completed the initial version of repairs and upgrades;
The menu system allows you to fix destroyed assets - if you have enough funds! Funds are added for killing aliens but also taken away when assets are destroyed.
Upgrades allow the weapon assets to have increased ammo and power. The auto cannons can be improved by upgraded to spray rounds.

Keep watching out for the FREE demo available on the 30th November!
