SWOOOORDS! 1.3.1

News 2 comments

I made a quick bugfix release. These bugs are pretty annoying, so I would suggest you download it. Here's some gifs to entice you!

Play the Web version on Kongregate

GAME OVER MANGAME OVER MANGAME OVER MANTrue Doom Murderhead

== 1.3.1 CHANGELIST (Mar 16 2013) ====Bugfixes only... but important bugfixes!

  • Fix : A bug in joystick detection code made it so that keyboard-controlled co-op players would always attack towards the mouse pointer if no joysticks were connected
  • Fix : Elite enemies (depth 5 and lower) were much less elite than intended. They now have x2 the hitpoints and do x2 the damage of normal enemies.
  • Fix : If a new player joins mid-game, they will no longer join unarmed.
  • Fix : Origin of bullets for special attacks would sometimes be in the completely wrong direction.

You just have to come close to the sword you want and then just swing with your current sword :)

I've actually already been working on one! I'm about halfway done and just need to stop getting distracted by other projects.

What is the maximum level of the dungeon? The maximum I've ever got was at level 7, so I'm really curious about how far I can get

The dungeon goes on infinitely! There's no end. According to my stats, people have gotten as deep as Depth 12.

Say, does the difficulty increase again? The highest level I too have reached is 7. I noticed an increase in the enemies' strength after level 5. Does this occur at a later point as well?

Also, does progression in sword strength cease at the trio of Finn's Sword, Terminus Est and the huge one that makes explosive skulls (my favourite, though I can't remember its name!)?

The difficulty keeps increasing indefinitely, but not in the same way as the level 5 upgrade to "elite" enemies. Those are indeed the final swords. The sword you are thinking of is TRUE DOOM MURDERHEAD, a term borrowed (with permission!) from the Barkleyverse: Kickstarter.com

I like this game, but I have some problems. When I unlocked levels 6 & 7, it wasn't appear in start level menu.

You're not supposed to start any deeper than 5, so getting messages for unlocking lower depths is indeed an error.

Thanks for the bug report!
