We have continued our work on Battle Squadron ONE and will soon release version 2.0 on iOS with loads of new features… further increasing the fun.
The feedback for Battle Squadron on iOS has been fantastic and reviews have soared (see post July 26). This has kept us going to make the game even greater and more fun to play.
We are putting the final touches on the various enhancements now, but can reveal some of them below:
– Game Center Achievements… bringing a whole new dimension to playing Battle Squadron.
– Enhanced controls, even better than version 1.0.
– There is a new difficulty, “Air Commodore”… where even the toughest players will succumb.
– All new pre-game animations to create the right atmosphere before your battle.
– Battle Squadron will now also run on iPhone 3G and iPod 2nd generation (see post September 6).
Besides all this there will be a grand surprise, which we will reveal in a short while… so stay tuned…

I can’t wait for this update, though an update is not needed as the game rocks as much as is did on the Amiga…
I have to ask, who did the art work on the actual box art of the game Hybris, was that sorted out by Discovery or is that something you guys did yourself?
Long long Amiga fan, and true longer fan of Martin, Torben, Paul Van Der Valk and Ron Klaren, yeah you know who you are 😛
Hi Zro Dfects, Very nice to hear, both that you already like BS as it is on iOS… and that you are looking forward to the update 🙂 We are putting the final touch on the game these days. Torben was part of making the artwork for the HB box, but also somebody else for some parts.
Thanks again 🙂
Nice move to name it Air COMMODORE 😉 I suppose this is no random coincidence?
Thanks 🙂 No, it is not a coincidence. It is of course to honor the Commodore Amiga… while still being a valid air force rank that supersedes Squadron Leader… 😉
You were definitely right when you said I’d need to think a bit more “elegant” when I made my guesses about how you’d name the new rank 🙂
Happy you think so 🙂
come on come on come on! can’t wait =)
Guess you want to show off 😉 Very nice to hear you are ready. Putting the last few hands on the Achievements – which will also be another highscore list for you to excel at 😉 Then a bit of beta-testing and ready for release 🙂
yeapp! and I usually keep my eye on appstore just for this!
I sure hope “Enhanced Controls” includes the long-awaited and highly-anticipated iCade support 😀
Hi Ali, It is one of the things we very much would like to include 🙂 It is however also one of the things we still need to work out… and hope will not require too much work, since version 2.0 needs to get out soon. But it is surely not forgotten 😉
I love (good) surprises 🙂
… And we hope you are up for some testing of in particular the new Achievements 🙂
