SPOOKY UPDATE - October 18

For a special limited-time Halloween promotion, we’re unlocking the Halloween and Boo! worlds right away eliminating your need to earn all the loot items to unlock them.

Difficulty Warning - not for the faint of heart. Face off against bats and ghosts in 40 spooky Halloween-themed levels. Claim your treats (gems!) without running into tricks (bats and ghosts!)

As a reminder, all of these ghastly Halloween level elements are also available in the Level Editor if you find yourself in a creative holiday mood.

Other things new in this update:

  • Added Steam Cloud Save Support – Record your level progress to the cloud and continue as you left it on any device. Resolution and difficulty settings still remain locally controlled.
  • Removed Powers-ups in Hardcore mode – Bringing the game even closer to its classic level of difficulty.
  • Added Flat Cam Option – We’ve tweaked the camera slightly to make the game look more like its original classic perspective. If you hate it, we also added a toggle in the Options menu to go back to the 3D perspective view!

Thanks!

More Dynamite/TNT - Sep 19

Good evening Boulder Dash community!

We have continued tweaking the Dynamite/TNT rewards found in the treasure chests, and as of tonight's update, there has been an virtual "explosion" in the amount of TNT compared to before! Or, roughly 50% more likely than the other powerups, when the treasure chest spews out a powerup.

Let us know what you think - too much? Need more? TNT seems to be the most popular powerup (we admit it is our favorite), so we would like to know if this makes the game more fun, or less fun, in your opinion.

Thanks for your ongoing support and feedback!
