Post news Report RSS Release #12. TURBO BULLETS and FINGER OF GOD!

Feast your eyes on this new Friendship Club release. We've added a new game mode in this version called TURBO BULLETS. These fancy new bullets are bullets that get BIGGER and FASTER when they are caught and refired. They're harder to catch, but the reward outweighs the risk... it looks and feels AWESOME when one of these knocks your opponent's head off.

We've also implemented the first 'catch the leader' modifier, prospectively called FINGER OF GOD. The first player to die gets to become the finger of Timmy (or is it Timmy, who knows?), which has the ability to squish the other players still in the play space. The finger can never win the round, but it can affect the outcome.

Can you guess what these icons are for?


Whoops. What is Chud falling in to?
