New Content

4 New Modes have been added to the game!

To unlock the new VS Modes, you need to complete the Story Mode.

VS Battle

VS Enemy Battle

Playable in 1-4 Player Modes

If you play in 1 Player Mode, you see how fast you can defeat the set number of enemy ships.
You can choose between 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 & 1,000.
You can also choose the spawn rate of the enemy ships from 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 seconds.

If you play in 2, 3 or 4 Player Mode, players compete to see who can defeat the set number of enemy ships first.

High Score Battle

Playable in 1-4 Player Modes

Play through 4 levels with a boss every 2 levels.

If you play in 1 Player Mode, you go through the set number of levels to see how high of a score you can get.

If you play in 2, 3 or 4 Player Mode, players compete to see who can get the highest score at the end of the levels.

Endurance

Playable in 1-4 Player Modes

Endurance Mode is an endless Wave style mode, with 5 Waves per Planet.
When you complete all planets, it starts back at the first planet, but the enemies in each wave increase and the enemy spawn rate increases.
There is a point where the mode will stop getting harder.

Boss Rush

Playable in 1-4 Player Modes

In Boss Rush Mode, you play through all bosses in the Story Mode in the order they appear and see how quickly you can defeat them.

There might be a secret at the end if you complete it.

Player Experience Changes

Steam Achievements have been added!

Play through the Story to see how many Achievements you can earn and unlock!

With the addition of the new modes, Steam Leaderboards have been added to show your friends you’re all that and a bag of chips with the high scores! Just like in the arcades where people competed for the high score! Now you can too!

The crew at StarSpace Nebula has gotten moody!

Now some character dialogs have moods.

Instead of enemy ships just appearing on screen, they now gradually appear.

Hear that rumbling?! No, it’s not thunder. It’s your Xbox One controller!

In different parts of the game your Xbox One controller will rumble!

Other X-Input controllers should also rumble as well. Although other controllers have not been tested.
As a reminder, Direct Input Controllers are not supported to play the game. For a list of Direct Input Controllers please search online.

Also, the PDP Arctic White Wired Xbox One Controller doesn’t work well in the game. The analog joystick cuts out and makes a stuttering effect with the player ship.

As another reminder, it’s best to use the Official Xbox One Controller by Microsoft.

Changes

The Multiplayer Input Selection Screen has been changed to a more simple input selection.

For example,

in 1 Player Mode, even though player 1 automatically has both Keyboard and Controller inputs enabled, if you select Keyboard as your input, the Controller will be disconnected from gameplay. But, if Controller input is selected, the player will have Keyboard input, and the Controller will stay connected.

When choosing 2, 2 or 4 Player Mode, you have to option to choose from:

P1 Keyboard, P2 Controller
or
P1 Controller, P2 Controller

and so on.

As a reminder, only the first player can use use the keyboard as their input method.

How the game saves has been updated to accommodate the new modes.

The checkered flag markers are being brought back. The game will now save when you cross a Checkered Marker. Progress will also save during certain cutscenes.

As a reminder, do not exit the game or power off your device during these.
