Bullet Candy 1.5 updated
Charlie's Games and Macgamestore.com have announced the release of Bullet Candy 1.5, a major update to the fast-paced arcade shooter for Mac OS X that adds game pad support and much more. "Viewed from a top-down perspective, Bullet Candy allows for a true 360-degree shoot-em-up experience. With all of your enemies in view at all times it's easy to see and, more importantly, shoot them into tiny little pieces," according to the developer. Version 1.5 adds support for digital game pads, splits the main screen into two sections: Arcade and Extend, makes changes to the bonus menu, adjusts the difficulty with some levels, and fixes a bug in which levels with lots of generators and green homing bullets would crash if you get the laser shot. The game requires a 1GHz G4-based Mac or later is available as $20 digital download.
