- The Chiptune Soundtrack has been replaced with synthesizer sounding virtual instruments to give a 16-bit game sound.

- Flying Objects have been added to certain Worlds for the player to avoid.
- The rate at which Power Ups spawn in Boss levels have been adjusted.
- A new save system has been created. Older save files may still load as they are still the same files. But if they don’t or you get any errors, please start a new game. If there are still errors, please file a bug report. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Player Experience Changes

B: Fire Bombs
N: Advance Dialog
- Some text now have an outline to make viewing on white backgrounds visible.
- All Leaderboards that have multiplayer reference to them have been removed as it doesn’t really make sense to display the leaderboards of a multiplayer game, when only one user would be shown on the Leaderboards.

- Clone Ships can use all other Power Ups.
- It takes less time for the Auto Scroll to start moving
