So glad this update came out tonight being that all of the new releases today (except for "candy boy") didn't catch my interest at all. Thankfully this makes up for it.

Glad the developers kept their promise!

Again, fantastic level design, especially the last couple of levels. Collecting all coins and finding all axolotls now is really challenging. Music fits perfectly again and it's nice to see a preview of the third world (good move). And I really love to hide the control arrows.

Fantastic update, will keep me busy to some days. Thanks!

Picked this up as well as Hot Shots Golf 3 tonight and am enjoying this one thoroughly. I had waited until new levels were released and it's such a worthwhile purchase! Great game and can't wait to see more additions (i.e. - Please keep new levels coming!)

If the difficulty increase from world two to world three is the same as the increase from world one to world two, I will be bald by the time I beat the wizard when the game is said and done. There were many occasions where it was sheer trial and error that got me through. I'm not complaining. Winning felt great. On a side note, the music is great.

Hello all! We are the developers that worked on Beans Quest.

We are happy to see some of you have already downloaded the new world!

World 2, AKA version 2.0.0, brings quite a few new features in addition to World 2 itself:
  • Game Center support, we heard TA users asking for it, so weve added it.
  • D-Pad support, a few people requested a D-Pad option so they could play one handed, so we chucked it in there!
  • 3D Audio, sounds actually relate to where they come from in the level now, its subtle but awesome.
  • Improved performance on the older devices (i.e. iPhone 3G and earlier).

Bean completed crossing the Grasslands in World 1 and now hes adventuring in The Crystal Peaks, an icy mountainous region! The world has new gameplay elements, new enemies and new visuals to explore. This world includes 9 stages in total, 1 more than World 1 provided, this boosts the total number of levels currently on offer to 17!

Weve begun work on World 3 The Sky Ruins, some more promotional materials, and new features as well. Our plan is to continue with 9 stages per world from now on and additionally we have decided as a team to expand Beans Quest to 4 worlds in total!

If youre interested in hearing more about us and our development, please check out our website at:

We also did an interview with an Australian gaming news site, after completing World 2, called MMGN:

And if you are interested you can like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, just check out our website.

Wed like to thank everyone who purchased the game last month and verified our belief in our game. It was really great to hear the good (and the bad!) feedback we received from everyone in reviews and especially here at the TA forum.

Lastly, heres the box art of World 2 and some screenshots
