Release 1.2 "Shayla's Broom" (2023-09-13)

  • We included a completely new, halloween-themed map.

Release 1.1 "Daemon Curse" (2023-08-18)

  • We slightly modified the leaderboard point distribution so that the places 4-7 get more points, and it feels less frustrating to come in at 4th place.

  • We changed the logic of how the effects of attack power gems stack: Now, their duration doesn't add anymore, giving you a shorter slow-down effect when being hit twice. This also increases the skill and tactic component since it makes less sense to target another NANO with a power gem that is already slowed down by another power gem.

  • Moving item boxes no longer give slow-downs so you always feel rewarded if you catch one.

  • We adjusted the item probabilities in item boxes for 7th and 8th place.

  • More small UI adjustments to make the game look even more awesome.
