Starfire - Ares Assault, Version 1.01 Released

I spent some time over the last week rebalancing the difficulty of the game, following feedback. Largely this has made the bosses move more slowly sideways, allowing easier escape and reducing enemy damage and speed on Easy and Space Slug settings.

Hopefully this will make the game more accessible and remove the frustration factor when fighting the first boss.

The latest version of the game can be downloaded from here:

(if it doesn't say v1.01 on the download link, you will need to refresh your browser)

You can read the full release notes in the 'Suisoft / Starfire - Ares Assault' Start menu folder (under Windows). The release notes are in the resources folder in the APP file on Mac.

The work for the next release consists of:

  • Screen resolution choice
  • Performance settings - nebula density and shrapnel density

  • I also need to spend some time on the website to make it more attractive and show off the game with videos and screenshots.
