Do I even need to write anything here? Just marvel at this glorious picture above for a second. RBM is a great game, we all know that, but one thing that was missing was some really cool environment, well, not anymore, with this update you are about to experience this tropical pleasure!
And which map won the "first-to-be-redesigned" award? Lemon! That's right, one of the most fun and beloved maps had to be the first as it represents the tropical vibe the most. Build up momentum, collect lemons and throw them into the huge mixer, that is the concept in a nutshell. We have added one new cool feature - the conveyor belt. If you figure out how (it is not rocket science) you can turn it on and spawn a few extra lemons!
As if this update wasn't packed enough we included a few hidden statues which you can search for on the Lemon Island. We'd like to expand this concept into something like collectibles on more maps, so we are testing the waters to see how you like it. There are 3 hidden statues in the Lemon level, once you find them take a screenshot and post it to our Discord so people know you are the real deal!
The jump is essential to the game so that is why we decided to give it another pass. You can now brake if you press the oposite direction, the character no longer turns when you brake which makes it easier (especially for casual players) to make tight jumps as it it less confusing. We have also ramped up the visual turning speed mid-air so you no longer feel the character is rotating from a wrong pivot point - this doesnt affect the gameplay at all, but boy can you feel it.
We are constantly improving the game in all aspects and there are always updates down the line which work with these kind of updates, we have more plans for handles and that is why we have improved the looks and feels of handles as well as created some new fancy platform materials - I personally love the sun reflecting on the rubber pads - let me know what you think on our Discord!
Yep, that is about it for this update, we are extremely excited to hear your feedback for the Islands and cannot wait for your screenshots with the hidden statues, now go break some records maniacs!
