ORANGE MOON UPDATED TO V0.0.3.1 ON STEAM

New significant update for Orange Moon V0.0.3.1 released on Steam today. In addition to new level with puzzles and a new enemy, game mechanics were slightly adjusted, added and improved.

Astronaut can now use a survey bot that will help to explore unreachable due to the dangers or tight space areas. New environmental hazards such as proximity mines and toxic fog added. The new hovercraft vehicle can be used to pass the fog area on 6th level. Bots, mines and toxic clouds encountered on the 6th level.

Multi directional targeting is now available for machine gun and shotgun. However, the flamethrower, hand cannon and grenade launcher one directional targeting remained unchanged. There is going to be another original game mode with one direction targeting for all weapons and tougher enemies for hardcore gamers in the future.

The machine gun is now fully automatic. That means one doesn't have to spam fire button.
