Release Notes 1.3

Done! The Christmas release is pushed to the Google Play and Apple App Store!

Don’t forget to visit the Black Market the weekend after Christmas. A free legendary item will wait for you there!

There’s a lot of other new stuff in this version:

Improved card deck usability

No longer swipe until your fingers bleed! Win every drinking contest. And get rid of unique items you do not need.

  • Double tap to transmute stack of cards
  • Long press to drink stack of potions
  • Transmute unique cards to dust

You will find notes from the developer explaining how to use the new deck features:

A mini tutorial item added to your stash.

One of three mini tutorial cards.

Dust cards

Two unique cards of any kind can be transmuted into a random dust card:
Potion-23-cardPotion-20-card

I’m very excited to hear your opinion on this! If it works well, I shall add more of those quests! Right now there is a quest for one unique tower of each element.

    I am so ready for this.

    Also I forgot to ask originally, but do we have to unlock the new item set with the forge? Or is it unlocked automatically? Same question with the Stonecutter Temple.

    Also, so stoked for the smaller changes added in. Electric Chair was a cool concept that never seemed fun to use, this sounds much better. And the indicator could be crazy useful, if I’m picturing it correctly.

      Hehe, I’m super excited as well! Hope everything goes well and there won’t be any technical difficulties.

      All uniques are directly available to play with (new set, temple). Only the legendaries need to be unlocked.

      Oh, and I love to see the Electric Chair becoming a more frequently used carry!

        chair is my favorite metro carry haha, awesome.
        Andy, this is nothing short of amazing. Thank you for all that you do!
        so it’s safe to say scepter of Time can be safely used in bonus round now?

          Thanks! Very happy to hear that 🙂

          Not yet… I only corrected the display part. Plus, the cooldown cannot get below the min cap anymore. Which should be fine with Scepter @60fps. Scepter @30fps with minimum cooldown should still have an impact.

          The proper way for this would be some kind of “physics” loop that calculates hits much faster than the rendering loop updates. But this is going to require a lot of work on the game mechanics internals..

    Hi Andy! Nice update and nice to be back. BTW, a while ago, i found that when i go to ladder then to developer’s inn and go to my wizard in seconds, my mazebert crashes. 🙂 FYI.

      The version was submitted to both platforms on December, 18th.

      The Android version is already live since December, 18th.

      The iOS version is still in Apple Review. As Apple Review has Christmas holidays from 22nd-28th, it will probably be next year for iOS version to go live 🙁

          “Holiday ruined.”

          That’s hilarious. For what it’s worth, when you get to play it, it’s an awesome update.
