To speed things up and make the game more exciting, a new mechanic was put in place to make the ball accelerate towards the shield if things are lined up properly. Some other changes include refactoring the sounds to go through a global mixer. This paves the way for more granular sound options. Level 3 has been redesigned slightly to require less ice and more iron for a win.
