WEAPONS

The game starts with three weapons available and each of which can be used simultaneously. These are machine gun, flamethrower and grenade launcher.

Machine gun is a universal weapon that uses .308 ammo, but does little damage to certain enemies unless upgraded.

MGunUpgradesP

Flamethrower is good for dealing with organic lifeforms and pretty useful as a shielding from the swarms of enemies.

FlamerUpgradesP

Grenade launcher does a lot of damage, very efficient against armored enemies, but requires experience to use, the ammunition is scarce and heavy to carry.

Shotgun, powerful at close to medium range against groups of enemies, can be unlocked with the in game resource - Moon Resources Corp. points (MRC points). It also can be used to break through the weakened structures.

ShotgunUpgradesP

Three more weapons and ammo for them will be available to unlock with resource points in game - hand cannon, minigun and rocket launcher.

UPGRADES

Every weapon, its ammunition and astronaut equipment has up to 6 upgrades, 3 upgrades minimum. This brings amount of upgrades for only weapons and ammo to more than 50. Carrying capacity of ammunition can also be upgraded and will have 12 levels each.

UpgradeCards


Astronaut has 18 equipment upgrades - fuel tank, jets, and augmentations. These upgrades will reduce fuel consumption, movement efficiency and resistance against certain enemies and environments, and unlock ability to carry heavy weaponry, such as minigun, hand cannon and upgraded machine gun.

Hi Everyone!

There was a bug, which is fixed with this version, with a 3 switch puzzle when the switches were activated too fast, it was much harder to solve the puzzle and open the gate on 4th level.

The game performance is increased by optimizing protagonist’s number of animation frames and reducing the number of collision polygons of numerous game objects. This will free up some resources used to calculate physics.

List of updates included in this patch:

  • Incoming transmissions now require closing before they disappear;
  • Incoming transmissions bug when consecutive messages appear fixed;
  • Killing Moon Rose is no longer required for enemy cleared level bonus;
  • Fixed 3 switch puzzle on 4th level bug when switches turned on too fast;
  • Reduced number of collision polygons for many objects in the game, which increased performance;
  • MRC Trooper wont freeze before dying anymore;
  • Small ammo containers won't disappear without adding ammo to player;
  • Game now saves all applied settings;
  • Fixed rare bug when if new game started after MRC Punisher M1 fully supplied, it cannot be supplied again.
  • Improved targeting with controller;
  • Other minor tweaks.

Best!

Not that the teaser trailer was bad or anything, it's just a lot more atmospheric when playing it.The art style comes out more too. Perhaps a small intro/teaser to the story would have been nice, set the tone. Good work!
