Gauntlet of Power v1.1.0 is here!

Hello Adventurers!

It’s time for the first update to the game! Based on a lot of your feedback in discussions and over on the Discord a bunch of tiny balancing and gameplay tweaks have been made and a few bug fixes here and there are solved in this update.

BUT! The dungeon also received a host of new inhabitants, new creatures, new enemies, and some of the existing enemies and bosses learned a few new attack patterns and skills .. so be ware!

You’ll run into the Summoner, who will be summoning a bunch of creatures and won’t stop until you kill him! Also say hi to Blobby : he looks happy and cute, but looks can be deceiving !


Key changes in this update:

– Weapon evolutions at higher levels will create a higher-level evolution (never more than 2 levels below the weapon you are evolving). So you can still evolve a level 6 arrow into something new, and not worry about it becoming a level 1 Evolution, it will be a level 4 evolution! (and Evolution weapons are stronger than the base weapon by nature).

– You now have a max-amount of heart containers available to fill from the start. So you start with 3 hearts, and you have a max of 6 heart containers. BUT you can find a Gold heart to increase the maximum amount during your run!

– And the only real big bug is now fixed, some players were “randomly” losing weapons at later levels of the game. This is now resolved!

What’s next

Next on my plan is to add more “NPC” like areas, comparable to the monk. Already got a few interesting ideas for that, and the aim is to add alternate dungeon area’s for special items or weapons.

I also plan on designing some Character-specific weapons that can only be unlocked and used by a specific class.

If you got ideas, don’t be shy and come hang out on the Orangepixel Discord, and I’ll see you there!
