The TestFlight team did great work actually! They reported a lot of bugs which could be fixed long before the game launched.

The problem with this particular one is that it's a snowball effect: low health, big monster, lever that breaks your save game...

At the risk of repeating myself: it's already taken care of. I'll make that section of the game a bit smoother, and then nobody will ever remember it caused a lot of commotion!

So are you happy with sales? Still thinking about trying myself to get a little game out.

To be honest I don't think it would be appropriate to discuss sales in this topic, but please feel free to send me a PM or a mail at dylan@dwarfquestgame.com . And what kind of game did you have in mind?

Do you have the second axe from level 4? Are you using Focus and Warcry Battle Cards to boost your attack damage?


The update is coming along nicely, I'll post the list of improvements later on. I hope to submit to Apple either tonight or tomorrow. Cheers!

Just read this thread, only because i too was stuck on the level with the minotaur and wanted to see if others were having the same problem. I was quite pleased by the responses from the developer. looking forward to some time with this game. And yes, i would also love a port of Cadaver. Will certainly buy any future Dungeon crawlers from this developer. Greetings from Denmark.

Here's the promised list of fixes and improvements for the upcoming update, v1.1:

* Fixed minotaur / lever bug, meaning if you die, you will spawn just outside of this room and can try again
* Nerfed minotaur weapon range from 2.5 to 2.0
* Moved second axe and altar in level 4 to better locations
* Improved overall collision detection for all levels
* Added Restart Level option for when you're stuck (shouldn't happen anymore) or want to try again using different tactics
* You can now buy extra Battle Cards at altars for 300 gold apiece
* Active Battle Card effects are displayed on screen, just below your healthbar
* Focus and Warcry, and Stoneskin and Deflect now stack correctly
* Bigger collision box for the dwarf, meaning fewer misclicks during combat
* Bigger collision boxes for cabinets, altars and crypts
* Tutorial texts only trigger once, as intended
* Fixed trap behavior in level 8
* Disabled autosave during end boss fight, resulting in a bigger challenge

We're currently testing everything thoroughly. With a bit of luck we can submit the new version tomorrow, otherwise on Friday. If all goes well, you can simply update and if you're currently stuck somewhere, restart your level from the in-game menu. Being able to buy extra Battle Cards at altars will certainly help you to beat the game.

Thanks again for your patience everyone!

pka4916: Just sit tight and wait for the update! You'll be able to restart that level and get extra Battle Cards at the altar.

Theda: thanks!


Alright, we are doing the final tests on the update today. Looks like we'll be able to submit for review in a few hours, and have it available to you as soon as Apple approves.


Also: friendly reminder that Dwarf Quest will switch to regular price tomorrow. So if you've been holding off, today would be a good day to get it!
