It's a rewarding thing...
...Dodging them bullets. I look down at my buffed out droid at the end of a fire fight and I'm like "Danng!! yo chassis ain't even scatched!?!!" I really hope that's an achievment (with the question in there.) Not getting hit is the best strategy of the game, and you're rewarded, or really, not punished for taking the time to do so. Evading does favor faster droids, slower ones get shafted there. A quick sidestep/edvade button would be cool, a perpendicular action to you and your targeting cursor which "jumps" you back and forth out of the way of fire (yeah I know there are speed power ups, I know. It still would be awesome: HUUGE tiny-jumping robots. What's more Puppy-Dawwg than that!?!)

One thing that's bothering me: When I right click to take over a new droid, and then try to quickly beam back to the original droid, ocasionally transfering doesn't work. I think maybe because I'm not releasing the right button bewteen multiple transfers (which is what I'm use to doing). I'm not sure if that's what's going on, or If there's a glitchy thing with transfering. Anyway, regardless I'm coming after those score boards :) tearin' it up! I would have been dropped a score deuce but my computer alerted me to a non-negotiable forced shut down in the middle of an unsaved game! Hope that doesn't become a frequent thing :/

So I answered my own question after playing it again. You do have to let go of right click between multiple droid transfers :( do not like that. Messes with the flow.

Also the bomb stays present a little bit after the explosion. On level 40 I used a flame bot to reduce the health of the boss very quickly but he kept trucking along on fire with no health for a long time.

I had to force it to stop the right-click from starting another transfer because transfers between your own droids happen so fast you'd almost always instantly transfer straight back again afterwards (because the mouse would be in exactly the right place, of course).

Just going to release a patch for DA in the "test" branch on Steam for the Mac. It will be "buggy" in that your mouse pointer will be visible, but it's a step forward - it should work on any Mac without any trouble from 10.5.8 up to 10.8 and beyond.

Yeah it was fast, that's why It worked! After waiting ten years to grab a powerful droid you could quickly beam back to your first droid and let the new friendly clean up shop. But now this has totally effed my game strategy! :) I'll get over it.

I'm lucky enough to have multiple macs, computers that is, I'm not describing my pimpin' game. But hopeful my old laptop will vibe with the new patch. Thanks for all the hard work.
