Beta 2.1.10 Released

What's New

  • New stuff
    • Levels up to 90
    • New enemies
    • Ice teleports
  • Gameplay changes
    • Boxes now fall down holes
  • Massive performance improvements
  • Minor graphics, sound & UI improvements
  • Bug fixes
    • Fixed mouse cursor disappearing on Windows
    • The protector item now protects against being squashed by boxes
    • Hardballs don't come back once you've collected them
    • Might have fixed the savepoint/replay bug for good
    • Fixed the game sometimes forgetting what levels you've done
Steam support is coming along nicely too. What I haven't decided is whether to release the Early Access version on Steam, or wait until the game is done. In either case, the Steam page should be up fairly soon — but I need to do a trailer first. I hate doing trailers! I'm bad at it and it takes ages. Oh well, gotta take the rough with the smooth.

Enjoy!

    1. No, I thought I'd fixed the cursor. One day I'll figure out how to write Windows programs properly :)

      I'm glad the performance fixes helped you! Optimization is a lot of work, but quite good fun, at least if you're weird like me. Might do a blog post later on exactly what I did.

    1. I'm really pleased you like it!

      Sorry to say the blue follower isn't available in the Level Pit yet, because it's possible to construct levels where he behaves weirdly. I know you will build some crazy levels, so I want to make sure things work right in all situations :)
