What's next?

As the Apple developer license costs about 99$, you won't see Mac version any time soon, EVEN I said I would publish it now! When I managed scrap enough money to buy that damned licence, I will release the Mac version with the next version. I've also started to code two bosses and atleast one of them should be available with the next patch. I'm still trying to kill all CPU hogs and do everything to get this game run even on the most rubbish systems. However, things are looking pretty good in overall.

Any feedback will be appreciated. Something about graphics? Express yourself! Found a bug/glitch? Tell that to me! Don't hold that valuable piece of information for yourself!

There's also a subreddit dedicated to this game!
