Update 1.3 - 10-02-2014 Kickstarter Promo

February 10th, 2014

As part of the ongoing Kickstarter campaign for the sequel to Waves I've released an update to coincide with it.

Update 1.3 includes two changes:

  • A Message screen on the titles telling you about the latest update.
  • The default weapon has been changed to the Beam Laser from the Sequel.

You can switch back to the original weapon by unchecking "Promotional Weapon" in the Game settings screen.

This promotion will only run for the duration of the Kickstarter campaign after which the weapons will return to normal.

About the Game

Waves is a twin stick shooter that can be played by anyone, but with a high enough skill threshold to keep even the most hardened shooter fan entertained.

Set in a Neo-Cyberspace arena your system is being overrun by bugs, errors and viruses and the only solution is to kill every rogue process before it kills you.

Clear the arena of enemies while racking up a big fat Combo with swift kills and well timed Bombs. If it all gets a bit too much you can use your Time Buffer to slow down the action and turn defeat into victory. Players can compete across seven different game modes with online high-score tables and Achievements in their pursuit of twin-stick perfection.

Key Features:

  • Slow down time at will with the Time Buffer.
  • Decimate enemies with well timed bombs.
  • Chain together kills for massive combos.
  • Battle against your friends scores with the online leaderboards.
  • Crunch Time – 3 minutes of intense action every time.
  • Level up and defeat the fearsome Cubes to extend your time in Rush.
  • Survival mode - 3 Lives and more baddies than you can eat but watch out for ambushes!
  • Bombing Run is all about the Boom. No guns but lots and lots of Boom. BOOM!
  • Challenge mode puts your skills to the test with 20 levels and only 30 seconds each – Try and 5-Star them all.
  • Feel the adrenaline pump with only 5 seconds to live in Chase.
  • Your Weapons are Useless! Unless you stand your ground in Hold.

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.

i have found this game to be increadibly fun and relaxing to play, yet still a little challenging at times. its the kind of game you can load and play for 5-10 minutes and still feel like you've had a good gaming experience.

intense fun game with good music. I love playing this game and enjoy the feeling you smash your space button, wishing you could do a combo to make an explosion in order to save your ♥♥♥ from those evil little chasing balls :D. This game is easy to play and hard to challenge.

If you like dual joystick shooters, this is a good game in short bursts with enough unique mechanics to differentiate itself from the crowd.
