Hello, you cool cats. Thanks for stopping by.
Updates are approaching at an ever increasing pace, but this week we've only got a bit of Bloons Monkey City action for you to sink your darts into.
Bloons Monkey City - Bloon Beacon!
An interestingly mysterious, crystalline object has appeared. It's the most glorious and royalist of purples and there's sweet artwork telling you it's something called a Bloon Beacon. You approach it, cautiously at first, and then notice a large number of bloons gathering around it just outside your city limits. As lord of all you purvey you force a lowly farmer over the fence to go and see what's up. Before long you hear a monkey scream and the farmer is running back with singed bloomers and quite a tale to tell his grandchildren.
You venture forth with your forces, sure to never actually be in harms way yourself, and you attack the bloon menace surrounding this so-called Bloon Beacon. There's more of them than expected but they seem a bit dazed and you manage to capture the area, expanding your city. You walk forward to get a close look at the sparklingly majestic, crystalline object. You flick it with your monkey cane and it rings out with an echoing buzz and you can all but perceive an almighty roar. The glow intensifies. The beacon fizzles and spits pretty purple particles and disappears before your very eyes. At your feet, as if by magic, sits a lovely package of Monkey Knowledge.
You go back to your life, beat up some pesky bloons to expand a bit more, capture a territory or two and the Bloon Beacon returns some hours later and you capture the tile again, earning another Monkey Knowledge Pack. It's all so mysterious. What does it all mean? Surely there's more to all this...
Questions from the Comments:
Does Rohan actually work at Ninja Kiwi?
You better believe it! Though he's far away across the room from me.
Was that a deliberate xkcd reference...?
... or are you actually a spider and the 'cat conspiracy' is actually a conspiracy created to distract us?
Haha, what? What a silly thing to suggest. Haha. Ha. Ahem. Next question.
Do you play Starcraft, Aaron?
I do (though not much lately)
Was it really necessary to remove the dislikes?
Perhaps not necessary, but we agreed it was better overall to remove them.
Do you prefer hot chocolate or hot tea?
You may as well ask what the meaning of life is!
What if I have medium sized hands?
Then you need medium sized gloves.
Any news on Battles for the Galaxy web version?
It's there now. It's out! Have a look for it.
Will Battle for the Galaxy get AP?
No it will not.
Why "Fortress Destroyer"? Why not "Battleships", "Fleet Commander", ...?
Love your formatting. The turrets and buildings are kinda fortressy... It's a name that's been around from the beginning (2+ years ago) and will hopefully be explored more in future.
If someone bullies another person on this site, can they be banned?
They can be. This is taken on a case by case basis. Bans are usually only temporary if we do get that point.
And that's all! Leave your questions below and having a great weekend!
