Hello crashers. It's been a while since I updated Crashed Lander, but I've dusted off my project files to make a few additions. I'm (finally) adding Global Leaderboards and Steam Achievements to the game.
These have been the most requested features ever since bringing the game to Steam. I've tried several times in the past to add these features, but my coding skills were not up to the task. Guess they are now, 'cuz I finally figured it out. I had to switch programming languages to get it done. Still not really comfortable in C#, but I'm getting the hang of it.
I've posted a new build to the Beta branch that has global leaderboards for all 50 levels, both Normal and Hard difficulty. Leaderboards are displayed after finishing a level, or you can peek at the leaders on the Pause screen. The local best score is displayed before you start each level. Achievements are working, but not included in the current Beta. They should be active in a few days.
Not many people actually playing the game these days, but maybe this wil spark a little renewed interest and attract some new challengers.
You can acces the Beta build by right-clicking on Crashed Lander in your Steam library, choosing properties, clicking the Betas tab, then choosing v3Beta from the dropdown menu.
I'll also be cleaning up a few bugs and re-jiggering a couple of the levels that I'm not happy with - llike the Overwatch Rings level which is WAY to hard. If you have any suggestions or bug reports, now would be a good time to let me hear 'em. I'll start a Forum Thread for anyone who wants to comment on the Beta, too.
