Game Update #3.1 (1.0.51 Android & iOS): 1/21/14 Edit

More Stuff! Client version 1.0.51 (both Android & iOS) (Be sure to get the new client when it becomes available in your platform's store!)

Updates

  • Improved game performance and stability

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue with Room and Trap swapping that previously introduced an exploit that allowed Rooms to be totally enclosed/blocked off from the rest of the Dungeon
    • For those Dungeons that currently include inaccessible buildings: when raided, paths will be created/revealed, connecting all Rooms in a manner consistent with normal connectivity design parameters.
  • Fixed an issue with the guild training perk (Leg Day) which caused training times to display incorrectly (appear completed when they were not). The displayed training acceleration values have also been restored to their correct values: 2%/5%/10%)
  • Fixed an issue with some donated guild Minions "disappearing"
  • Removed a rare crash that could occur while using the Dragon Breath spell during the Tutorial.
  • Upgrade timers will now display units of time (minutes, hours, days, etc.) properly for normal and modified values.
  • Fixed a few miscellaneous issues with Guilds to prevent potential crashes.
  • Quick fix to ensure that during dungeon design, the visual green placement area more accurately and consistently matches valid placement location.
  • Restored the ability to properly visit dungeons (for viewing purposes) using Leaderboard and Guild interfaces.
  • Fixed an issue with two campaign dungeons that would sometimes render with no Dungeon Heart.
  • Resolved a crash that could occur when moving a building with an active timer.
  • We also fixed an issue where time measurement units were missing from the Room/Trap info screens.
  • An issue with guild leaders being unable to kick some members has been fixed. Associated with this particular bug, there was an issue with numbers of guild members being inaccurately calculated. This, too, has been fixed.

Game Update #3 (1.0.49 Android & iOS): 1/02/14 Edit

Happy New Year! Client version 1.0.49 (both Android & iOS)

Features Guilds! - What better way to celebrate the recent holidays, than with a brand new feature? We’re pleased to announce that players can now band together to form Guilds, bringing a wealth of benefits for members to enjoy… so join (or start) one today!

  • Guilds require that a Dungeon has a Guild Lair (new Room), which can be built once a Dungeon Heart has attained Level 3.
  • Once a Guild Lair is completed, a user can join a Guild, or create their own.
  • To join a Guild, enter the Guild menu to search for one that piques your interest, and ask to be invited. Alternatively, you could accept an invitation to join, should one have been preemptively issued to you.
  • To start a Guild, simply press the ‘Create Guild’ button, name your Guild, pay the required fee, and then seek out some like-minded Keepers to join in your domination.
  • Invite your friends via the (new!) friends list, which pulls in friends from Google Play Game Services or Apple’s Game Center, respectively. Make your Guild public, invite-only, or close it off to new members; each Guild’s leader decides!
  • Guilds can gain access to perks that can be unlocked that will provide bonuses to all Guild members. From “more mana” to “increased gold and stone production”, there are a plethora of perks available to aspiring Guilds.
  • To unlock a perk once it becomes available, all Guild members may donate resources to the cause until the goal is met. Once unlocked, the perk becomes available to all members of the Guild.
  • Guild members’ actions will contribute toward Guild achievements, and completing these will raise the Guild level, granting access to more perks to unlock via donation.
  • Members can donate Minions to the Guild Lair which will then be used to defend the Lair during Raids. Additionally, anyone that donated Minions may withdraw those Minions, if need be.
  • Chat with your Guild via Guild chat at any time to coordinate your actions, talk smack, or just shoot the breeze!
  • Each Guild’s success will be reflected on the Leaderboards, so get those members in line and get to raiding!
  • Finally, Guild Leaders can choose a banner to represent the Guild.

UI Overhaul – We took an in-depth look at all the pretty UI bits in the game, took them all out and then put them back together in a more useful and streamlined fashion. Plus, we threw in some improvements regarding how the UI behaves, and tweaked the information available to you at any given spot. So be advised that you might find a few of the buttons or menus you were used to slightly shifted or displayed a bit differently, but it will be worth it!

Updates

  • Treasuries and Warehouses now hold the majority of Gold and Stone to be plundered.
  • Evil is as Evil does. Evil points are now gained from actions performed in Build Mode, rather than via Raid Mode.
  • Raid Mode now provides Trophies as the reward for battles and is tracked on the Leaderboards, instead of Evil points.
  • For those times where you might want (or need) to move a few things around in the design of your dungeon, we’ve made it a tad bit easier to do so! Players can now swap between previously-placed structures (rooms or traps) that are the same dimensions (3x3, etc.).
  • Check out the competition (or your conspirators!) by visiting another Keeper’s Dungeon via the Leaderboards, or the Guild roster.
  • Imps now perform additional animations when slapped around. That’s right, it’s even MORE fun to slap them around now!

  • Fixed the tier 10 achievements for the quarries and mines.
  • We’ve made a number of changes to the Tutorial to make the flow easier to follow and to get you to the action quicker!
  • Achievement announcements will now wait to display until unlock banners cycle, meaning they won’t overlap each other and look silly.
  • Added an effect to show that a building is ready for leveling up
  • Adjusted the backend to prevent disconnects in rare cases when building a structure.
  • Added systems to help achieve interruptible simultaneous asset downloading, meaning “more stuff quicker” with less problems, as well as recovering from interruptions more gracefully.
