This update has been long long overdue. There were some problems with both 1.51 and 1.52, so I decided I would skip those and go directly to a major update called 1.53. Unfortunately moving to a new place and life in general, prevented me from doing that as fast as I would like to.
So what has happened to 8BitBoy? The core mechanics of the game has been optimized all-round and the game-engine has been updated extensively in several ways. This should decrease lag and increase performance for PC users. This is especially true for Nvidia users who used to experience problems with lag and changing framerate.
Still no good news for Linux users i'm afraid. 8BitBoy is based on Node-Webkit and it's still not working properly with Linux. So I really hope there is a solution soon. No would like 8BitBoy to be on Linux more than any other platform.
Mac users aren't missing out on this update, because 1.50 runs splendid already on Mac.
I hope you enjoy the new tweaks and find the PC version of 8BitBoy more fluent than earlier builds.
Have fun guys!
