    I love/"hate" @Valryon. (No real hate, of course!!!) xD

    I knew about january's upcoming update and I've been super hyped ever since I learned about it. Then 2019 arrived and I knew Steredenn's update was around the corner. Then I grew impatient and started checking TA's forum and AppStore for available updates, and here we are... it has a release date!!!

    Love: A small team has provided one of my favorite games on iOS (I still launch it from time to time, trying to get past that 5th or 6th boss... man, that's hard).

    Hate: Now Val comes and tells me I have to wait 6 more days. You picking up a fight? Come at me!
    (ง'̀-'́)ง

    IMPATIENTLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS UPDATE!

    January's killing me, and Binary Stars is one of the reasons. xD

    You should consider the coop with 2 mfi as it is the case in some other games.

    Interesting!
    Do you have some good references of games using 2 MFI controllers? :)
    So we could check how it works.

    Death road to Canada now actually supports 4 players simultaneously with MFi.

    Also 10tons' Crimsonland and Butterscotch Shenanigans' Crashlands. I think "land" makes games become coop; Steredennland...

    It’s “supported” but no fullscreen, and that would be my only complain. It’s boxed, but black areas are receiving touch input. Maybe something more colorful rather than leaving it all black would look better.

    Nonetheless, an incredible update. Can’t stop playing, finally beat the game, now I’m exploring the tactics of Specialist ship.

    The thing is, the game was designed for 16/9 screens (back in 2013 :eek:).
    We can't change that without completely changing the game, we can't just display a bit more of background: it would have a deep impact on the gameplay.
    So as bx59 said, we enlarge as much as possible and you can use black bars for inputs.

    Lots of games are designed for 16x9 screens and get updates. As bx59 said, you can easily just add a frame at least around the gameplay area. Wouldn’t affect gameplay at all. It would have zero impact if it were just framed. Makes the game look more modern and less distracting than black bars. There are TONS of examples on the App Store where this has been done without affecting gameplay.

    All I am saying is that there are a lot of people who will open the game and see it not filling the screen then immediately close it. It may not seem like a big deal but it is a turn off to many people. Most people would not even know the black bars are part of the gameplay area.

    I personally am drawn to play Black Paradox over this game because of it.

    I am one of the biggest advocates for iPhone X full screen support, but I understand certain games weren't designed for it and it would basically break the game or make it look extremely ugly with stretching the pixels. Super Hydorah is in the same boat. The main thing that matters it that the game plays well, and this totally does. I don't even notice it's not full screen when I'm so focused on the game. And I absolutely HATE decorative borders, so if you did implement that, please make it just an option.

    Fantastic stuff though, the update is incredible. This is one of the best games on my phone.

    Anyone still playing this having control issues? Every once in a while the movement and/or fire button will become unresponsive for a few seconds(touchscreen). Just wondering if this is happening to anyone else or if it’s my phone.
