We are back with another major update to Tubetastic! Version 2.3.0 brings a lot of new exciting stuff, so make sure to read this post to find out what we've been working on.
King Of The Pool
King of the Pool is a fun game mode, and we've made it more fun with the addition of crates!
No, EA didn't get to us. They're not loot crates; they're random fish crates that float in the water, and give you points when you break them.
The crates aren't alone! We also added barrels, which are, honestly, very satisfying to break!
Now we have levels! and XP! RPG stuff! Cool!
It's simple: after every match, you get XP, based on your performance. Get enough XP and you level up!
You also unlock in-game features as you level up. So game modes, pool rules, and characters can now be acquired through leveling up.
"But wait, I had access to everything before this!" And you still do! Existing players have already been given a high level, with everything unlocked.
Now, you can't just have levels without competition! So we've added a separate leaderboard for the levels, which can be accessed in-game:
We've created a shiny new tutorial, for players new to the game. Our boi Fishard takes you through moving, shooting, boosting, and everything awesome about Tubetastic!
The game now supports cross-platform with mobile devices. But wait, Tubetastic, on mobile?
Yep, that's right. We're working on mobile ports of the game, for both Android and iOS.
And honestly, we can't wait to release it on mobile devices. The unique control scheme makes it super fun and very easy to play, because you can play it with just one finger!
- Added fish swimming underwater
- Changed the internal save system for the game. The previous system broke when you used the same saves on a different computer. This system is also more secure.
- PC users always point with the mouse, but now, if there's no mouse input, it automatically switches to the WASD/Arrow keys. This should help laptop users who play without a mouse.
