We got word from Merdian today that Alive 4 Ever [App Store] had its first major content update submitted to Apple for review. They seem to have listened to some of the criticism that forum members had in the Alive 4 Ever thread and implemented quite a few changes.
Two new game modes are being introduced, "Survival Battle" and "Horde Battle". In survival battle, you try to stay alive as long as you can through endless streams of zombies. If you survive for ten minutes, a special golden Desert Eagle pistol will be awarded. Horde battle has you fighting waves of zombies, and a P90, golden AK-47, and a M4 Super 90 will be rewarded for clearing waves 8, 16, and 24.
Some interface elements have been improved. You can now change the transparency of the dual sticks, and on the scene selection screen a small icon will indicate whether or not you have completed the challenges of that level.
Meridian provided us the following trailer showing the new features of Alive 4 Ever 1.1:
We really enjoyed Alive 4 Ever in our review, and with the news of this upcoming patch, we highly recommend all fans of dual stick shooters to give the game a try. The 1.1 patch is coming soon, and should be available inside of the next two weeks if all goes well with the approval process.
