Version 3.6.0 Available
New version to start the Easter event. As with other events, there's a new skin for the AppX crab, some sets to purchase, and what has become a normal "prize tree" to get goodies as you collect the event butterfly every five minutes.
Also, the logic for Queen Autobuy seems to have been adjusted a bit -- hopefully no more queens sitting at level 1201.
Version 3.5.0 Available
Some changes to the early game as well as Quality of Life for the veterans available in 3.5. All reptiles, but especially those under 2000m now have less health than they had before, and you can unlock abilities sooner, including Ecdysis at 550 now instead of 650.
For vets, after you pass 10km at least once, you unlock the ability to auto-buy your queens on the next ecdysis. This can be toggled off in the options.
In Land of Reptiles you can now choose to go down to a lower Tier of difficulty in case you have advanced too far.
All good stuff.
Version 3.4.0 Available - Welcome to the Abyss
Version 3.4.0 brings a much needed change to Land of Reptiles, and introduces a brand new aspect guaranteed to make tournaments more stressful for players that want to tie for 1st.
Land of Reptiles is no longer limited to 10 difficulty levels. After defeating the 10th difficulty you are promoted to a new "Tier" with 10 more difficulty levels. If you had previously beaten all 10 levels in the old Land, you will start in Tier 13 with this update.
Each tier adds power to the new visitor to the riverbed - the Abysswyrm. Abysswyrm has a chance (2.5%) to appear in place of a boss. If you defeat the boss you instantly warp forward a distance. Every Tier in Land of Reptiles adds +10m to this warp distance. Tier 13 (where most veterans will start) is +140m.
Claw of Midas buff now also increases Abysswyrm's chance to spawn in addition to the + to reptile gold. If you watch 2 additional ads your Abysswyrm will gain +2% chance to spawn.
The concern in tournaments is getting an Abysswyrm when you are trying to tie and leaping 100+ meters past the tie point and causing chaos.
In addition, a new event has started for Carnival (south american festival) that is identical to most other events. Collect special items from the event butterfly and unlock a prize tree, including a new skin for AppX crab. As usual there is also a promotion to buy gem sets, conches, and additional skins.
We moved all of the silly mini-games into the Butterfly Arcade (under the Info menu) so they can be found easier. At the same time we added a new game specifically as a thank you to school sponsors: Benny For Hire. Ever have a desire to turn the tables and help the reptiles? Consider supporting the school.
A couple people have said we should have a Donate button. We do. Visit the Info menu to go to our information page where you will find an option for a one-time donation as well as becoming a Supporter through Patreon for recurring donations.
