Astro-Slug Dev Blog #3

Did you know that the Sun contains 99.8% off our solar system’s mass?  That means Mercury, Venus, Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, and the Asteroid Belt make up only 0.2% of the solar system’s mass.  The progress of Astro-Slug is a little more fair: 30%!  I may have pulled that number out of my asteroid, but it’s still exciting!  As always, you can read the changelog below.


A new Pickup!

Enemies can now drop a shield!  When picked up, the player will be immune to enemy lasers for a whopping 6 1/2 seconds!  Each new shield picked up while a shield is already active will add 3 seconds.
