BioBeasts Patch Notes - 1.3.29
21 April 2016



Download for Android
Download for iOS



Features
Beast animation revamp
  • We’ve moved to a new animation system for all the beasts, greatly smoothing out their animations and leading the way for some interesting stuff in the future. It also reduces their filesize/memory usage by up to 75%.

    New Mutation: Healthy Hearts
    • Effect: Max Health +2
    • Max Level: 1
    • Tier: Advanced

    Challenges
    • Six new types of Challenges
    • Challenge Rank leaderboard
    • Can now be completed after each wave, instead of only on Escape/Capture
    • Insane Challenges now worth an extra star
    • Challenge toasts will now be queued and play in order when completing multiple Challenges at once


    Changes
    Mutations
    • Bulwark
      • Since the shield activates at critical health, we want to make sure it provides a solid amount of protection, especially compared to Hallowed Bastion’s shield at the beginning of every wave.
      • Duration: 15-35 → 20-45 seconds

    • Total Rampage
      • The increased time limit was making this mutation a bit too good at granting Scrap, basically making it a requirement for top scores. By removing it and increasing the Scrap increase, it’s still super useful, but less of a must-have for the leaderboards.
      • Rampage Time Limit: 10-50% → 0%
      • Rampage Scrap Increase: 20-100% → 20-120%

    Other
    • Health Bots now spawn in early Survival waves
    • Lowered memory usage of several enemies
    • Title screen now shows a loading progress bar and will automatically load into the game when done
    • Can now pause and quit during “breakout”
    • You may now be prompted periodically to rate the game. Please do, it really helps us out!


    Bugs Fixed
    • Fixed the display speed of Plink’s chat on certain devices (is now much faster)
    • Leaderboard on game over would sometimes never report your rank
    • [iOS] Leaderboard on game over would incorrectly display your social rank instead of global rank
    • [iOS] Fixed link to rate the game
    • Tutorial on game over could incorrectly be skipped when waiting for leaderboard rank

    Currently the game is mostly luck based when it comes to mutations. I mean wouldn't it be great if you can pre-select the mutation that should appear when you're playing... More strategy and less luck dependency. The order in which the mutation appear can be set too for more/better strategy. The pre-selection of mutation can be 20?? Already mutated mutation can re-appear on next level, but cannot be selected obviously.. So? Feedback??

    Hmmm, that sounded a bit . . . how to put this . . . less exciting, as "mutations" are supposed to be pretty random, biologically. Sure, I'd like to be able to preselect mutations, but to me, part of the excitement in playing is not knowing what mutations are coming up next, and then having to make do with the choice given.

    But preselecting the order of the mutations to appear is actually a pretty good idea. If you make it halfway through a round only to find out that you made a mistake in the order . . . well . . .

    Or simply make a new gameplay mode where you can pre-select your beast mutations. Ofcourse such mode must be harder since you are using your finest mutations and powers.

    Just a side note, still pretty disappointed that the iOs bug I reported hasn't been fixed yet, where when you reach 10%/20% of your battery bar and you receive the notification telling you so, and while having an active gaming session, that means you will lose all of your health points and getting your beast captured. Really annoying especially if you are in an advanced stage, and also because iPhone batteries run out really fast.

    Remove this and you have your excitement. Hitting high score once in a while because you were lucky enough to get the right mutations isn't exactly the coolest.

    Anyway.. As Machaar said this could be a mode. Just like the other modes. Hard, insane etc...

    In regards to being able chose your mutations, I can see both sides. We do want players to feel like they have more agency then they currently do. We also have to be careful as not to allow the player pick the perfect combination of mutations to where they just own the system. There has to be some flavor of luck, especially in a PvE. But not so much that it feels like unless you get a perfect choice, you wont have the best run you possibly can. So its a bit tricky to balance and have that feel good element.

    We have been talking more recently to allow the player to choose a starting mutation for certain modes of the game, for instance on Insane mode, starting out can be very rough until you gather enough mutations by completing the waves.

    We also want more ways to customize a beast then you currently do.

    The current flavor of the game isn't final, were still experimenting with it as we play and hear feedback.

    We've been looking into this. I've seen this come up in discussion a couple of times. I'm curious if it happens in other games for you as well? In all other scenarios like a call or message dose the game pause like intended? It seems to be hit or miss depending on the iOS version you have.

    It's iOs 7.1.2.
    Yes, sometimes, the game stops as intended. Although that happened only once in many many times where the problem has occured. Sometimes, the game even stops, but you still end up losing all of your health points.
