Hard mode Invader:  Increase the shot speeds of EVERYTHING (about as much as the incredibility "It all happens so fast" does but without the move speed increase).  Then give it the ability to spawn more bugs faster and from the start. 

It all happens so fast made that boss a death trap for me.  :)

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Thanks.

I've sent Misery a draft of Hard Mode. We'll see.

I'm pretty sure you can't. I didn't see the spawned units providing any XP at all.

The first release version did have xp granted for the Invader Minions, however that was quickly fixed. The current version 1.005 gives no xp for the Minions.
