What a difference an update can make to an application!!!!!!!!

I was ready to review this application yesterday. It was going to get a less than glowing review. This morning, however, I notice that there was an update available. I decided to give it a shot and see what was different. Wow! It went from being an absolutely awful game to be an absolutely phenomenal one.

So what were the issues? Originally the application was impossible to control. Originally it was difficult to know where the controls actually were. Originally when you tapped what you thought would be a control it might do what you hoped… but then again it might not.

So what changed?

First off as soon as you’ve started the game it now displays two buttons instead of just one. The "Start Game" button does what it says, while the second button invites you to define the game’s controls. One tap on an icon (there are five in total) and you can move that icon around. There’s the "rotate left" button, the "rotate right" button, the "fire button", the "fire engines and move forward" button and the "warp to another location on the screen" button. You can move them around the screen and, in effect, create your own game pad with the controls were ever the most convenient. (This is not only a good feature for this game but I wish it were future on every game going forward as well. Well done!)

Second, those buttons that we just defined remain visible throughout the game now so you always know where to actually tap the screen. It makes playing the game actually possible!!!

With the new controls in place this is effectively the best version of Astroids I have seen! The graphics are excellent. The sound effects are good. The gameplay is great.  It works really well!

I felt like I was a kid again back playing asteroids but on a color screen. At $.99 this is an absolutely fantastic, highly recommended, I thoroughly love it game. 

All I can say is- Wow! What a difference an update makes!!!!
