Black Inc adds more direct control system and adds new features

Ion Assault – the first German-made game to be released on Xbox Live Arcade – will undergo an automatic update as Cologne-based developer Black Inc looks to revise the title’s control system and add new features.

The top—down Geometry Wars-like shooter will offer more direct controls, with the Xbox’s right thumbstick now used to directly align the player’s ship.

And Black Inc have released a new gameplay mode to reflect the more immediate, rapid gameplay. A new high-score-based “survival mode” pits players against a rising tide of enemies, demanding faster reactions and greater stamina.

The game became Germany’s first CBLA title when released in September last year.
