Nova Nukers! Free Content Update - Patch 1.2.0

New Features

  • Use Emotes to show your opponents what's up! We added 15 different animated emotes, 3 for each of the 5 characters! Use them in game and find your favourites!
  • We also added emotes on the scoreboard! You can react with happy, sad or angry emojis to show your feelings, in online and local matches.
New Planet!

Mykoloss is an exotic planet, overgrown with with dense moss and various types of mushrooms! Jump across the raised caps of the Lavatops and attack your opponents from above while listening to the planet's awesome new soundtrack! Bounce high on the spore-spraying Jumpshrooms and dash through wooden roots, Twinshrooms and Poisonarcs. Long matches on Mykoloss are especially exciting because all of these mushrooms regrow over time!

Planet Mechanics!
  • The ice on Glazios is now really frozen and slippery! Be careful to not slide into craters and the dangerous core.
  • Barrid is now occupied by a rude Sandstorm! Get too close and you will be sucked inside and flung across the planet.
  • The lollipops on Dolcaneta have become explosive! Don't stay close for too long or you will get stunned by a chain reaction of explosions.
New Game Modes & Modifiers!

Super Brawl
Super Brawl is a modifier for Catch Match. It's like Catch Match but you can respawn after you got caught!

Flag Chase
Capture the flag! Catch the flag objective and prevent your opponents from stealing it by running away. Catch Point is still in the game but is now a modifier for this game mode!

Coin Rain
Catch them all! Coins rain from the sky all over the planet, collect sets of 8 to gain points. You can also steal the coins from other players!

Cursed Coin
Cursed Coin is a modifier for Coin Rain. It's still raining coins, but one of the coins is not like the others. Collecting the cursed coin will curse and eliminate you after a short time. Stun an opponent to get rid of it and pass on the curse to that player!
