That's a big improvement right there.

I also noticed a feature, I don't know if it's new or not. When you hit the other guy in the head (I don't know if it's dependent on hitting the head or not) it knocks their hat off instead of killing them! Is that new??

It's pretty cool.

The faster arrows really make them a more effective barrier now.

Let's have a poll, how many people out there like playing slow bullets?

In my opinion the slow bullets are too slow. It's pretty hard to get hit by the slow bullets unless you get caught in a ricochet or something.

I would also spend some further time honing the AI. Do you support multiple levels of AI difficulty right now?

It seems like the AI is a bit too dead-random for experienced players.
