Waves 1.4.1 Patch Notes

Some bug fixes for the most common problems that aren't hardware or driver related.

  • 4k Resolutions supported in Video Settings.
  • Optimized Trigger Area in Hold mode.
  • All Ingame Music should now peak at the same volume.
  • "Needs More Gun" Achievement should now unlock reliably.
  • "Stop Touching Me!" description now matches unlock conditions.
  • You now have an option to launch the game in Windowed mode.

I've also changed how the Redists are handled to use Steams newer system. This is the first time I've used this system so I'm not sure what issues it may have. Hopefully none. The one thing to keep an eye out for is if you have to agree to a UDK EULA when starting the game. In theory this shouldn't happen but if it does please let me know.

Informazioni sul gioco

I fan dei giochi "sparatutto" meritano di più. E quelli che non hanno scoperto il piacere della distruzione via "twin stick", si meritano un punto d'accesso. Ecco Waves, un twin stick shooter che può essere giocato da chiunque, ma con una soglia di abilità abbastanza alta da intrattenere anche il più intransigente dei fan.
Waves è stato costruito per essere completamente accessibile e al contempo richiede una gran dose di abilità per essere padroneggiato. Sfalcia le banalità e riduce tutto a ciò che è davvero importante: i Punteggi Migliori.
L'obiettivo è sgomberare l'arena dai nemici ottenendo grandi Combo con uccisioni veloci e Bombe ben piazzate - e se la situazione diventa troppo complicata puoi usare il tuo Time Buffer per rallentare l'azione e trasformare una sconfitta in vittoria. I Giocatori possono competere attraverso cinque modalità di gioco differenti, con tabelle dei punteggi online e Achievements (Risultati) alla ricerca della perfezione.

Funzioni Principali:

  • Rallenta il tempo a volontà attraverso il Time Buffer.
  • Decima i nemici con bombe ben piazzate.
  • Concatena le uccisioni per combo schiaccianti.
  • Batti i punteggi dei tuoi amici con le classifiche online.
  • Crunch Time – 3 minuti per ottenere il punteggio più alto che puoi.
  • Sali di livello e sconfiggi gli spaventosi Cubi per estendere il tuo tempo in Rush.
  • Modalità Sopravvivenza - 3 Vite e più cattivi di quanti ne puoi immaginare, ma fa' attenzione alle imboscate!
  • Bombing Run è un'esplosione unica. Niente pistole e un mucchio di Esplosioni. BOOM!
  • La modalità Sfida mette alla prova la tua abilità con 20 livelli e solo 30 secondi per ciascuno - cerca di ottenere il punteggio massimo (5 Stelle) per tutti.

This is a fun take on the twin stick shooter genre that of course feels a lot like geometry wars, wich, is a good things to be honest. Your objective in all the game modes is to earn points. You will have fun doing it, the game have been created by someone who cares. It shows.

Good, simple, arcadey fun. I have to make the inevitable comparison to Geometry Wars, which is plays very similarly to. Where that game has more diverse enemies, this one has more diverse game modes. Also, where Geometry Wars's control scheme really was optimized for dual analog sticks, Waves plays just as well with a mouse & keyboard.

It's a 'twin-stick shooter' i-i

Nice game to pick-up and play for when you have that spare 15-30 minutes to fill.
Heaps of different game modes (including not shooting, just dodging) and achievements.
Also, Steam Friend List scoring leaderboards! xD

Since your ship is spherical in shape and creates ripples in space as you move the movement is similar to rolling a ping-pong ball around on a plate of jelly (especially when trying to make sharp turns). So, it is unique in that respect and you do get use to it.

I quite like the gameplay, it makes you think fast and works on your timing and reaction skills.

Recommended if you have a twin-stick controller!

Waves has a bit of a learning curveyou wouldn't expect from a twin stick shooter but is a very, very, very addictive game. Does it have a story? No. But it makes up for it with really pretty explosions, an interesting slow-mo mechanic and a killer soundtrack.

Not the shovelware BS that plagues Steam

Waves is an arcade inspired shooter.

You control a ball and move around an arena dodging and shooting at enemies and collecting combo increasers. The goal is simple. Stay alive and rack up points.

There are a number of game modes here, from simple wave based survival where each level you progress gets harder and crazier, to "Hold" where you can only shoot from within a slowly moving bubble around the arena, to bombing run where you have 5 seconds to touch random red bombs around the arena, just to name a few.

As you kill enemies you'll gain the ability to slow down time in short bursts and gain the ability to use a bomb attack which wipes out anything in a short radius. It's simple arcade fun and the game feels good to play and feels responsive.

Visually Waves is nice, lots of flashy effects and sparks, without becoming too cluttered or chaotic. It's very nice to relax with this game and it feels awesome taking out the entire screens worth of enemies. Color choice is lots of blues, greens, reds and purples with yellow flashing sparks dancing everywhere, and I enjoy the sort of wavy effect on the floor behind your ball's movment.

Sound wise Waves delivers punchy explosions, robotic sounding announcers (the female voice sounds straight out of Portal), and the music is actually really good. I bump a few of these tracks even outside of the game. Very trip-hop kinda bass & kick electronic music, you can also switch it in game for more ambient sounds.

In short, Waves is a tightly designed, good looking, good sounding package. Easily worth the money if you're into that sort of thing and definitely up there as one of the better games in this genre that are all over Steam.

It is a bit difficult to find truly great twin stick arcade shooters on PC. There are quite a few of them around, but my search has been to find something as close to the PSN great Super Stardust HD as possible. A truly amazing twin stick shooter that many of us even got for free after the infamous ApocalyPS3 where PSN got hacked a few years back. Our reward was free games for not being able to login for a month! I ended up with Super Stardust HD, Little Big Planet, and inFamous as mine so I did well, but Super Stardust HD was the big surprise of the lot and I have been searching for a similar twin stick shooter ever since.

Waves may not be the same as Super Stardust HD, but I am very happy with the similarities and this style of twin stick shooter regardless. So my search for similar games to SSHD actually DOES result in finding some other greats now and then. In SSHD you played on a sphere where you orbited planets and destroyed asteroids and enemies with bombs and a boost. This spherical type of Twin Stick I have yet to find another one worthy of mention unfortuantely. In Waves you are inside a flattened circle, but it does give me the close-quaters bombs and instead of a boost it gives us a "Slo-mo" feature to get out of sticky spots.

Waves is easily one of, if not the best twin stick shooter on Steam imo. It has a similar graphical style of Geometry Wars where everythng is minimal, but that is perfectly fine and works well. It serves up massive combos like most shooters should have and has a great deal of different game types you can play. In fact I was very impressed by the amount of different game types avaialbe in Waves, and these have been doled out for free over the course of its life.

The main game type, however is Survival, and it means what survival means. Stay alive as long as you can and try to get the highest score possible. Unfortunately, the game has a max score limit of just over 2.1 Billion. It's not particularly easy to get here, but it is there. There are only a couple hundred Waves experts who sit a top the leaderboards with this max score so you aren't going to get to it without A LOT of practice and time played. I am not one of these experts who has achieved the score...yet.

Other game types include Bombing Run, which you play with just bombs. Hold, which was just released in March, is a mode where you can only use your weapons when you are inside a designated area of the screen. So no flying all over the place to avoid things, you must get into the attack zone to keep yourself alive. Crunch time gives you quick events that you must beat from other game modes. This is just a few of the game modes and there are 6-7 total if I remember correctly. All with their own Steam Leaderboards for the community, friends, and Local. The Leaderboards actually work too unlike many of the other shooters on Steam right now. (ie. Scoregasm, although Scoregasm is a pretty fun TS shooter for a cheap price)

Waves is definitely a GREAT twin stick shooter for any fan of the genre and I would highly recommend it. If you are one that wants to get massive scores and are willing to put in the practice and play time you can get there. With all the game modes available, and the time it may take to reach a score you can be proud of, you will be able to play for dozens of hours, if not 100+ hours. Waves is now a staple of my Steam gaming library for when I just want to jump in a game and start shooting things!

Steam Achievements are plentiful and are broken down to each different game mode so you can only get them all by trying all the modes. They aren't particularly imposible to get, although your skill level must increase greatly as well as your undestanding of the mechnics to achieve most of them.

Gamepad support is fine (BTW...TWIN STICK Shooter means they are meant to be played with...TWIN STICKS, not a keyboard and mouse...lol) with the XBox 360 gamepad, although I use a PS3 Dualshock 3 Gamepad with the DS3 Tool. For me, I wanted to flip the buttons around for bombs and slow-mo so using the DS3 tool made that very easy to do without having to go into an .ini file to change it up. There aren't control bindings in the game options so you need to do it manually, or with something like the DS3 tool. DS3 Tool is faster and easier for me as it is just changing the buttons up in the 360 emulation config rather than having to update the .ini file anytime there is a patch, which could replace that .ini file.

Waves 2 is now in the works as well and looks to be taking community suggestions of adding many different weapon types and other game styles. From videos I have scene it looks like it has some sort of "maze" style to some of the modes where you maneuver around walls and fight enemies this way. Oh yeah...Waves 2 also has a co-op feature it appears. It had a kickstarter a while back, but didn't get funded unfortuantely, but it's still being develped, however and you can find a lot of gampelay videos of it on Youtube. I am lookign forward to that as well. It looks different enough that Waves 2 won't actually "replace" Waves as a game I will play. :)

I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Geometry Wars. The gameplay and graphics are very similar.

The scoring and combo system took me a while to get used to, but once I did, it was pretty fun.
Perhaps some more effective tutorials would help ease players into the mechanics.

My only real complaint is that gameplay sessions lasted a bit too long. Geometry Wars was fun because the sessions were short, and you always wanted to play "one more time!". Here you get a bit too many lives.

But still, a fun experience overall.

A really fun shooter, which is best played with a controller, and is perfect for a very quick game of a few minutes, to spending hours just trying to up your score, or get to later levels. It consists of an 'arena' in which you can move about freely There are several different game modes each of which have leaderboards, so you can compete with your friends and world. Has achievements as well.
very nice game

Overview: Twin Stick Arena Shooter

The Good:

+The game has an interesting premise. Killing enemies levels you up. Upon leveling, a score multiplier is randomly placed in the arena. Collecting this increases your multiplier by 1 permanently. Killing lots and lots of enemies in a short period of time also increases your combo meter. When your meter reaches 10 you get to drop a bomb that kills enemies in the surrounding area. You can also slow down time for a brief period if this get a bit too crazy. You add all of this together and you get a fun fast shooter .

+ The game has plenty of interesting modes to keep you engaged. Each mode is vastly different from the last and offers plenty of different ways to play the game.

+Great music

+ This game is the definition of pick up and play if you are looking to kill some time. Lots of replayability

The Bad:

- Some achievements are very hard to get

- Can be frustrating at times

Conclusion

Considering I got this game for one dollar, it probably is one of the better purchases I've made. If you love the genre then this is a fantastic game to add to your library. If your just a casual fan like myself then you will also find it enjoyable.

This game is both nerveracking and delightful at the same time. I love the music and the CONCEPT of the game is easy. That's about all. Getting high scores and surviving in the multiple modes is addictive. I've just played for a total of 2 hours and my brain feels like it's gonna explode! I would definately recommend this game for everyone with a gamepad. I haven't tried playing without it yet, mostly because it's hard enough WITH a gamepad.

Pew Pew Pew!

Shooting and avoiding obstacles is the basic of the game. Really nicely done though. Colourful effects. Many modes to opt from. Personally, I like 'hold' mode the most. Although the concept of the game is simple, the creativity with different modes make the game more interesting. The devs have a sense of humour. You can see for youself in the option menu. This is always a welcome.

Overall, nice casual game. Recommend.
