Patch Notes 1.5


  • Fixed an issue where if the Robin Egg took more meters than you had, the meters would go below zero (still displayed as zero) and you would have to make up those lost meters before it would come up above zero.

  • Fixed an issue where your meters wouldn't be paused when coming out of pause mode.

  • Fixed an issue with the track limits not being set up correctly when in Snowflake and Flying mode.

    • While in Snowflake mode, you won’t hover over the edge.
    • While riding Johnny Pterodactyl, you can no longer ride the edge of the track to avoid geysers.
  • Fixed an issue where the Wilhelm scream and High Score audio would be cut off it you immediately hit ‘play again’.

  • Fixed an issue where scores from the Ghost Zone wouldn’t carry over towards distance related achievements.


  • Added a mini game, The Box Game. Spend virtual Pancake currency to play this mini game where you’ll be able to pick one of three boxes. Whatever is under the box, be it a hat or a marble skin, it will be added into your inventory.

    • Added a Wardrobe where you will be able to select the hat you want to wear and what type of marble you want to use.

      • Selecting the Black Top Hat icon will put the hat that changes color depending on leaderboard rank onto your player.
    • Pancakes are used as a virtual currency to play The Box Game.

      • A free Pancake is awarded every 8 hours.

        • The timer will not start again until you run out of Pancakes. It, however, will not stop if you get Pancakes while it is already counting down.
      • Can be found as a rare collectible on the lava track.

      • Can be purchased from your Steam Wallet.

  • New game modes:

    • Added a game mode, Volcano!

      • The track is cleared… except the Volcano is erupting. Look out for falling Lava!
      • Default speed multiplier set in the settings menu does not affect the speed of this game mode.
      • Bottle Rockets are not available in this mode.
    • Added game modes Classic (Normal) and Classic (Expert)

      • No collectibles spawn in these game modes. See how far you can get with just distance.
      • Has no meter multiplier (same as other normal game modes).
  • Collectibles:

    • Added a collectible, Wave Rider. Collecting a Wave Rider will summon the ocean. You can keep your inner tube infinitely, as long as you go through the golden rings. If you miss a ring, the ocean will disappear. Rings get closer and closer together as you progress.

      • Wave Rider is available in all game modes except Firefly.

        • Can only collect Lava Rocks, and Robin Eggs while in this state.
        • Speed multiplier of 7.
    • Added a collectible, Pancakes. Finding one of these rare stacks of pancakes will allow you to continue a good game if you die, or can be used once you return to the main menu where you can exchange a Pancake for a go at the Box Game to win hats and marble skins.

    • The Bottle Rocket now has an equip animation.

      • Reduced spawn rate from 23% to 19%
    • Collecting a Robin Egg can now only add meters if collected with a magnet.

    • The Thunder Cloud that comes from collecting a Thunder Bolt now travels 50% faster and can travel 200 to 350 meters. Previously 100 to 250 meters.

      • Increased the spawn rate from 15% to 25%
      • Thunder can be heard when collecting this item.
  • Added a second chance feature:

    • When you die, you will now be prompted with an option to finish the game or continue for the cost of one Pancake.
    • If you die after the second go, you get no more chances.
    • This option can be disabled in the settings menu.
    • Press ‘Space’ to quickly exit the prompt if enabled (enabled by default).
  • Achievement changes:

    • The ‘10M Only the Best’ achievement is now ‘5M Only the Best’ and requires 5 million meters instead of 10 million.

    • The ‘75M Record Breaker’ achievement is now ‘10M Record Breaker’ and requires 10 million meters instead of 75 million.

      • If you already had this achievement unlocked, you will be granted the Purple Stars marble skin for free.
    • In an effort to make the ‘Grim Grinning Ghosts’ achievement more attainable, when using a Ghost Jam, which can be found in the Ghost Zone, you can now collect other Ghost Jams to reset the three second timer. Ghost Jams can now also collect Lava Rocks, Thunder Bolts, and Robin Eggs.

  • The frames per second debug is now available on the main menu.

  • Added a separate sensitivity option in the settings menu for high speed power ups, such as the Bottle Rocket, Snowflake, Ghost, and Wave Runner. This will default to 2. (Normal sensitivity defaults to 1)

  • Leaderboard changes:

    • Your Steam Friends now show up on the leaderboards as a blue color with “(Friend)” besides their name.
    • Leaderboards now show progress when uploading scores. (There is a timeout if you’re unable to upload scores within a duration of time).
    • Added the new game modes, Volcano!, Classic (Normal), and Classic (Expert) to the leaderboards. See how your stats compare!
  • Performance improvements:

    • Lava tiles used to be cubes with 6 sides (what other type of cube is there). Now lava tiles are flat planes (only 1 side). This means the camera will have to render less polygons and will, therefore, slightly increase performance. Slightly.
    • Improved particle system for the clouds in the Thunder Bolt effect. This should reduce lag spikes for some users when collecting a Thunder Bolt.

Developer Notes

  • If you want to avoid the loading process of getting the leaderboard stats every time you load a level, go into your wardrobe, and switch out the top hat for another hat or disable the hat altogether if you don’t have another hat. Levels will then load immediately.
