GearHead Caramel v0.120: Getting Skillful

I’m happy to announce a new release of GearHead Caramel: Winter Mocha. The enemies are now smarter. The repair skills work. Module attacks have been added, so if you run out of ammo you can at least go down kicking. Configuration can be edited in-game, and there’s an option to disable the music (which was causing problems on certain computers). The Thorshammer has its flame cannon, and there are a number of new mecha.

There are precompiled binaries for Linux and Windows, while the source distribution should run on any computer that supports Python 2.7 and PyGame. See below for the full list of changes.
