After playing through LoM Alpha 1, it became obvious that the weapon tuning was a bit off. A level 5 weapon was many times more powerful than a level 1 weapon. This meant that upgrading from the CatBoat (a single weapon ship) to the Sloop (a dual weapon ship) was a difficult transition as two level 1 weapons were far less powerful than one level 5 weapon.
I have retuned the weapons so that a level 4 weapon will be about double the strength of a level 1 weapon. I look forward to hearing your feedback for this change in the Alpha 2 release (which will be available on TestFlight September 20). The game is iOS 7 ready and I cannot wait to give it a try on the iPhone 5S.
