“Black Hole” Gets Patch, Discount

Twin-stick space shooter Black Hole got its first content patch today, just in time for a 33 percent off discount in the Switch eShop.

The patch is supposed to address some bugs along with other quality of life improvements. Here’s a complete list of the changes, which can also be found on their website:

  • 4 separate save slots
  • Exiting to main menu will always save your game, no more accidental save loss.
  • After Game Over the save file is not deleted and you can load your last save point
  • Added a tutorial to the first level
  • Shoot straight with Y, auto aim with X
  • Reworked options menu and added volume controls
  • Unlockable option for game speed multiplier. Play through the game once to unlock it
  • Crosshair option
  • Permanent current level display
  • Slightly changed third boss encounter
  • Adjusted Falchion speed upgrade
  • Slightly increased Falchion hit box
  • Adjusted Falchion Hyper Attack damage distribution
  • Reworked Falchion Hyper Defense: Now affects all enemies on screen, except bosses, instead of only those in a fixed radius.
  • Slightly reduced enemy count in levels 5 and 6
  • Small visual upgrades to some shots
  • Fixed infinite score bug from mine layers in fire world. High score entries that have obviously exploited this bug will be removed.

Dufgames also shared a small graphic for future plans, revealing that two-player coop and survival mode are on the way.
