This update packs a punch. I’ve fixed the load and speed issues seen on the iPhone. Unfortunately it was the font causing the problem. The iPhone cant handle drawing custom fonts. So, no font for you! The bonus system is back and I’ve tweaked the timing, number and grouping of boss zombies. There’s also quite a few UI changes. So, enjoy!
I've been doing some investigation into the speed issue on iPhones. I've found that adding the background image added 20 – 30ms to the draw routine which pushes it up past 70ms. For a game trying to hit 30fps (a frame every ~33ms), that's kind of big hit. I'm having trouble getting down that low as it is!
Ok, so I’ve finally implemented the menu. You can now pause, restart and reload LMS from the game screen. In this release I’ve also added a simple background to spice things up, and also tweaked the game speed, although that doesn’t seem to have worked how I wanted, so look for more changes to come in that regard.
LMS:AZP has always been a work in progress. Every release has been the minimum viable product. If it works, adds a little something and doesn't crash, I'll release it.
So, with that, I give you… LMS:AZP 7.04!!!!!
7.04 features, web fonts, help(!), a new and shiny HUD, and a Sniper Rifle!
