Alpha 4 (v1.0.5080) of PewPew has been released!
There are some specific changes based on feedback in this release, but mostly it's UI stuff. The biggest addition being a new screen where you can see information about a star system, as well as it's planets. The store screen has also received some love and you can now see descriptions of items before purchasing them.
Missiles are now fired using the CTRL key and they also only fire one missile at a time. This should help avoid the field being flooded with missiles. Note that they also do more damage now, so be careful.
A new shield has been added, and the two the existing shields have been tweaked. There's a generic all-round shield that provides decent max health and decent recharge. Then there's a rapid recharge shield with low max health, and a high health shield with slow recharge.
Any and all feedback is welcome!
