APE OUT 1.2: THE FAIR PLAY UPDATE

Hey all, this new patch is aimed at making the game more fair.

-Increased size and accuracy of no-spawn zone around starting point
-Removed flamethrowers and bazookas from the harder indoor areas of Fugue and Adrift
-Removed behavior where guards fired extremely quickly when approaching corners with guns aimed
-Prevented guards from shooting too quickly when grabbed (and hitting the player in some cases)
-Slightly increased machine gun guard's reaction time (they take longer to react)
-Slightly increased guard reaction time when lights are out (they take longer to react)
-Prevented explosions from chaining through walls
-Flamethrower guards' now must ready their flamethrowers before shooting
-Audio Improvements
-Fix for the game running too fast on some systems
-Fix for fugue ending playing at the wrong time in arcade mode.
-Possible fix for guards sometimes being inside closed containers, and occasionally pushing themselves up against closed doors.
-Possible fix for some crash bugs.

A quick note about leaderboards: as a result of some bugs at launch there were some impossible scores posted to the leaderboard. Thos are all fixed now, and I've gone through and pruned all the outlier scores. I can't tell when the scores were posted, so I don't have a great way of culling. If you guys would prefer I totally cleared the leaderboards let me know in the comments

Thanks for playing!

About This Game

APE OUT is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom.

Stylish Escape: Embrace bold colors and a dazzling perspective as you rush through tight corridors, open areas, and twisting labyrinths on a mad dash for freedom. Overcome all manner of human opposition, nefarious traps, and breakable obstacles to find each exit and escape captivity.

Grab and Smash: Unleash your primal instincts and incredible strength to overpower your captors. Hold them steady to create a human shield, smash their feeble bodies into walls, or throw one into another in a violent explosion of humanity.

Dynamic Soundtrack: Find your rhythm in the chaos as a dynamic soundtrack of drums, cymbals, and decapitations drive the action to the edge of mayhem.
