Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Space Mercenary Defense Force » Mothership rework, Death animations – 0.9.3

This update brings in a full rework to the final boss fight, adds transition animations upon winning/losing, includes 5 new achievements, and fixes some bugs.

Mothership rework

The final boss mothership fight has been reworked with new attacks, and a new death animation upon killing it.

  • The corners above and below the mothership will no longer be safe.
  • The laser beam attack no longer sweeps across the screen, now only firing directly forward
  • Bullet hell focused attacks to push you away and out of attack range
  • Increased down time between attacks to get damage in
  • New mothership death animation instead of the game ending abruptly

Death animations

The game no longer suddenly ends after dying, once you lose all your HP your ship will explode and break apart in a short animation.
