Space Grunts 2 update v0.7.0: We got Leaderboards!

 

Polish till it shines! This week’s update comes with a lot of polish, from simple things like centering text on the screen, to complete new screens like the “Continue game” screen or the Statistics screen.

I’ve also started on some big re-balancing sessions, as I’m pretty sure the game is TOO challenging at this point, so you’ll find that with this update the game has gotten slightly easier and you should be able to get deeper into the space base.

Finally a big feature this week are the Leaderboards! It will now track your best time/level combo and place you in the various boards based on your Character and in the Overall boards.  You’ll also notice there is a 4th character leaderboard, and I will write up a newsletter soon with the information on unlocking that character, so sign-up if you want it!

In this weeks vlog I talked a little bit about the code that goes into making the aliens move and run around the levels, so if you’re interested in that, check out last Thursdays video:
