All Input Devices Cooperate
I am pretty happy with horde overall and I wanted to be able to play it with friends. Well now I can, and you can too, because horde mode is now available for 1-3 cooperating players.
It works pretty much like before, except that all player spawn circles are shared, meaning they will alternate between spawning player teams units as soon as it is captured by one. The score is shared too, and the team will shared a spot on the leader-board together. So work together to claim the top position!
Touch support has been in the game for a good while now, but it did have still have the "experimental" label tagged on. Now it's now longer experimental and finally fully functional. You can even use the new split move modifier using multi-touch. The mode switch wheel can be opened by flicking the mode buttons upward. To make things easier, single taps now select groups of nearby units when nothing else is selected. To enable the new control mode, just touch your device - the game will automatically switch control modes!
In addition to touch controls, abstractanks now supports the steam controller which is a surprisingly efficient alternative. Like touch controls, this mode is optimized for that input device and fully functional. The right touch pad is used as a replacement for the mouse. You can box-select and point-select units using its cursor and the left trigger. The right trigger is used for move and power-up commands - hold it to use formation drawing. The left shoulder button can be used to activate split-move and send units to multiple locations.
