Overall it is good but with twp problems: 1) It occasionally freezes; 2) It is supposed to have all nine planets, but I only see three listed. Also, is it possible to play the hidden planet? If this item is resolved I will upgrade my rating. On the positive side, it seems faithful to the original, and it works with my bluetooth keyboard as long as the keyboard is connected BEFORE I load the app.
The previous iterations were unplayable due stability and playability issues. This most recent version addressed both so thank you very much for making this as true to form as possible!
The issues that plagued earlier versions have been remedied. The game will no longer suffer a frame rate drop with a crash after a while, and the controls no longer lag. I do wish for a sensitivity control since I'd like to turn my ship faster sometimes. Compared to the original DOS game, this one has a higher draw distance for objects so they will no longer appear as black dots far away. It also has increased visibility for terrain, and the depth buffer has been improved so objects don't appear fully visible through the haze. The field of view has been increased, and the graphics are now in widescreen resolution with proper aspect ratio. I don't mind the software rendered graphics as there are no source ports at all available elsewhere, which could have introduced texture filtering and MIP mapping. Lastly, as for this game's successors, Fury3 and Hellbender, they were published by Microsoft, which I believe would they are hard to negotiate even for their old products unless it's for a huge amount of money.
Save game on stage 3-1 became corrupted and glitches out for a few seconds, then the game crashes...
My all times favorite I have original, boxed PC version of TV since it was released. I have deep love to TV. I still wait for proper sequel (i don't count Hellbender, it was different), or modern remake, or "spiritual successor". Of course i give 5 stars to my old true love. That being said, i would like to see here accelerator (phone tilt) controls. Thanks for game! EDIT: when can we expect Tilt Control, please?
Nostalgiagasm! This brings me back :) Controls surprisingly well with or without the touch screen. Only one improvement that I can think of, how do you open the full screen terrain map? I can only get the overlay with dots. Also is there any way you could get Fury 3's license?
