In this release of Invasion Imminent I have done the following:
- Added Google Play achievements
- Added Google Play leaderboards (and removed my leaderboards system)
- Improved player controls for tablet users
- Added title screen background
- Added new UFO type: DeathStalker
For those of you who don’t like reading, here is a YouTube video showing the changes I’ve made to Invasion Imminent.
I’ve removed the leaderboard system I made, and replaced it with the Google Play leaderboard system. There isn’t any real reason for this other than ease of use to be honest. I also added Google Play achievements as well which I thought was pretty awesome. There are currently only 4 achievements, and all can be achieved through the game.
I have also updated the UI for the title screen so that it doesn’t give you that “blank canvas” feel to it. I’ve added a moving background to the title screen, and I have also added an achievements button at the bottom left corner of the screen. I have also made a few other minor adjustments with the title screen such as the title font size and some positioning with the title and buttons.
In-game I have also added a new UFO type called the “DeathStalker”. The DeathStalker is basically a UFO that moves and shoots faster than a normal UFO. But to counter-act these effects, the DeathStalkers lazers are slightly less powerful.
That just about wraps things up for this update. I hope everyone enjoys the game. More updates to come some time soon.
