Questions from the comments:


Can you give us more Bloons lore?
Once upon a time, there was a Bloon and a Monkey. You’ll never guess what happens next...

What type of government runs the monkeys?
“I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what botherin' me” - All hail King Louie

Where do monkeys come from?
Madagascar, Indonesia, Brazil and Democratic Republic of the Congo are home to two-thirds of the world's primates. Roughly two-thirds would come from somewhere in one of those 4 countries :)

How many spectres does it take to equal the power of a flying fortress?
Roughly 3 - 4.

Happy tacking Anniversary to BTD6, if this comment gets into next week's blog. Simple question: if BTD6 and BATTD monkey heroes collide, which ones do you think they'd get along best?
I think Sai and Ezili would get along best! They both love the shadows.

In BMC, where does the monkey king live? What is his favorite food?
In his castle and slightly roasted bananas

The real question is, why does it cost upwards of three grand just to get a trained pilot to fly closer to the ground? He should already know how to do that!
Flying close to the ground is a whole new cereal bowl of fish. If something goes wrong you have less time to react before crashing, you have to be fully aware of your surroundings and obstacles that may come into contact with you while flying low and you have to learn the power of your blades and just how close you have to get to the ground before bloons are blown back.

Will there be more Bloons? Like Orange Bloons?
Maybe one day! Who knows what nefarious secrets the bloons have?

Will there be another update for BTD5 PS4? It's kinda boring after unlocking Mastery..
Sadly, not at this stage.

What can Bloontonium be used for?
It’s used to coat bloons and turn them into extra lethal weapons worthy of taking down not just monkeys but anything that stands in their way.

Have you guys considered a map editor? I think that would be cool. then the game would turn into the mario maker of tower defences.
We have considered it but we have no plans to do it at the moment.

what is everyone on the team's favourite tower based on anything like design, strength, usage, etc.
Honestly, it changes week to week! At the moment, I’m really enjoying Monkey Ace and ground zero. - Sav
Can’t go wrong with Perma-Spike Spike Factory! They’re like normal spikes, but Permanent (mostly). - Immy
Tack shooter and Mortar Monkey. - Tarn
Archmage. Just always found it really fun to use. Has been my favourite since launch.
It's not a master of everything that will win you the game, but it has to be placed well to make its unique firing pattern function well - Rohan
The most fun tower to use for me is any crosspath of the 0/0/2 Druids with also spamming the 0/3/0 Druid. Then using Ezili to get dem lives down. - Zach
From any Bloons TD game? Dartling Gunner, guide the destruction.  - Eli
Probably Alchemist, I always have one. - Hayley-Belle
2/0/5 Spike Factory - Raz

 

From everyone here at Ninja Kiwi, thank you for your continued support and we cannot wait for the year ahead!
