What coming in the next update of Alien Scumbags? (V9)

 I am hard at work improving Alien Scumbags for it's next big update, take a look below for a full run down on what getting added and what improvements are coming.

o Hell's Waiting For Ya! 

A new even harder difficulty level which adds fall damage to Alien Scumbags and even more enemy to kill, this version changes in a few other ways too.

o New level in development

The next level will have you battling alien nasties as you take a lift deeper into the depths of the Nostami.

o More parallax

All levels will have far more depth now with full background making the environments look far more polished.

Grenades now travel further and explode if they touch an enemy before they land making room for some awesome kills, but also making the Grenade Launcher even more dangerous!

Eyeballs and brains and more are on the menu for the next update

o The game has been made brighter, especially the brightest setting

o Objects that can be used now flash white or red to show how they work
