Chaotic Box’s Frank Condello, developer of SHREDD (Free) (nee Dextris), is returning to one of his earliest releases for a big, re-done iOS and Apple TV edition. Silverfish DX started as an simple port of Silverfish ($1.99) to the Apple TV, but along the way, the game kind of spiraled out of control and became a way to revisit the original game. Here’s some footage of it in action on the Apple TV with the Siri Remote:
The big changes beyond new, HD graphics? The game is faster, with a bigger playing field. Enemy behaviors have been changed and new ones added in. And the biggest change? Movement is now free range, instead of fixed to cardinal directions, a la Pac-Man. You can move when and where you want, and nothing will stop you except for all those enemies! The original Silverfish was a fun game, and I’m interested to see how the new tweaks and changes will work out for Silverfish DX. This will be a separate, new release from the original game, but it will be universal for iOS and Apple TV when it’s ready, expected in January. There’s a forum thread if you’re interested to chat about the game.
