Patch 1.0.6 is live!

Hey folks, thanks again for keeping me posted on bug reports! Patch 1.0.6 fixes a few recent crashes and bugs reported by players in the later stages of the game.

The biggies:

1) Fixed a few sneaky bugs that were throwing crash errors during base 5 / the final boss level.

2) Re-fixed the firewall cards sometimes not clearing single hack cards on the conveyor in base 4.

Both of those were tough to sort, as they're fairly rare and were hard to replicate on my playthroughs. I was able to update the code, test it out a bunch, and we *should* be all set, but please do let me know if you run into any more issues with those two problems or any other bugs~

Side note: While it shouldn't impact things at all in this PC build, update 1.0.6 includes a handful of UI room positioning and behind-the-scenes tweaks for an upcoming iOS port -- these shouldn't impact gameplay at all on the PC version. BUT, that said, if you see anything weird or if pop-ups appear in unusual spots, please let me know, too! :)

Thanks again everyone! Really appreciate your support. If you're enjoying the game, don't forget to take a quick sec to leave a review! Appreciate it!

Nice surprise! PC Gamer just posted a really positive write-up of Missile Cards! An excerpt:

"You'll need to play lots of hands before you can become a Missile Cards powerhouse. But it's easy to play a lot of hands: each round only takes a few minutes, so it's perfect for short and mostly sweet gaming during your breaks, at lunchtime, or when you've got a few minutes to kill."
