The Alien Commander character in Double Star is making a guest appearance in the upcoming Rocket Rascal game from Brian Sowers at Animal Farm Creations. Rocket Rascal is expected to be out in early July. It is an action/arcade style game that features characters from other games.
Here’s what the Alien Commander looks like in Rocket Rascal.

The Alien Commander of Double Star, as it appears on the Defeat screen in Double Star, looks like this.
There is a lot of information about the new game on the Rocket Rascal Tumblr page, so check it out. Here’s a link to one of the game play videos there.
If you are having trouble finishing the really difficult levels (5, 9, 11), the new version of Double Star should help. Changes:
(1) your ship starts out with 10% more energy and stronger shields;
(2) your ship starts out with 12 photon torpedoes;
(3) the time to complete a mission is longer;
(4) a problem with the enemy tractor beams was fixed.
Get version 1.1.1 from the Google Play Store. See https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wglxy.starship
With so many games out there, you have to hook players right away. Double Star has a setting that let’s you choose between short and long training. My hope was that the short training would get players into the real game faster. Any thoughts? Did it work for you?

Many of you know that I have been working on an Android game. Well, it took me almost 4 years, but it’s finally done. Yay!
The game is called Double Star. It is a space war game — you against the aliens. The game is turn-based, which means you get a turn, then the aliens get a turn. It’s not a game where your reaction time matters. Here’s a little preview video:
Double Star is available in the Google Play store, if you would like to try it. Here is the link:
It’s free so don’t worry about money … just worry about those pesky aliens.
There is new code for the Java version of Super Star Trek. The latest changes include improvements in the way events are handled.

The latest update of Double Star fixes Level 6. For fun, for those of you who already finished that level, you might want to go back and try again. You can get to some of the alien starships, but not all of them. So you have that to figure out. And watch out if the tractor beam gets you and pulls you into the the cluster of alien ships. Certain death awaits.
