Haven't downloaded it yet, Seon, but I will fairly soon.

As an aside, petty thing I know, but the announcement on your main forum calls it "Rurret Wars"

imo, even better then Turret Wars, but others might disagree.

I'll edit this post later and let you know my impressions.

Coming soon from Sector 3... Ferret Wars.

Congrats on the update. Looks like there's a lot of cool new stuff in there. Good to see that people who have already handed over their hard earned are getting an unexpected update.

Actually, he's mentioned it on the sector3 website that TurretWars 1.7 was being released soon, before they released it.

You know, it's then, but now, but then but now as well.

Anyway, he announced it in the past for it to happen in the past for us to talk about it in the present so he... does something in the future. Not 100% sure what.

But practice mode is kinda fun, just... you need 'em shooting back, but that's why the other modes exist.

But man, the homing missiles should be fun to use. And we're getting closer to 2.0 and, in my opinion, a party for the bean counters a few days after it's out.

Keep cranking out the updates, Seon and the other as-yet unnamed people there.

1Eevee1... are you smoking something?

As with all of our game titles... we plan a full set of free updates for all customers in each version life cycle.

So when you buy a 1.x version, you get all 1.x updates (prob about 5 per version number)

So... the StuntMANIApro customers will be getting a 1.3 update soon... ;-)
