The game is great, a real throwback to the original space invaders. There is one minor suggestion I had so far and that's if there's any possibility some color can be added?

Hey - thanks Letobrick! Sure - I can add some color... let me think about it... I’m working on it tonight so probably sooner than later...

Thanks for considering! Thinking even something similar to original space invaders (

) with the shade of green and red would be great, but I understand if copyright becomes an issue here. End of the day, gameplay is what counts and I think this delivers, cheers.

I’m working on it - Give me a few days! I think we can do better than the original :-)

Hey, quick quesiton.  I can't get the game to recognize my Xbox controller.  Any suggestions?

Hey! Try running  the control settings EXE After you have the controller plugged in. Click on a joystick control function (e.g. fire) and then press the button on the controller you want to use. Settings will be saved automatically. Get back to me if this doesn’t work...
