Need to stay inside? No need to despair. Silversword (and Lootbox RPG) is on discount for the next days so that you won’t get bored while occupying your sofa.
I never understood why the very first quest – the one with the rats in front of the armoury – caused so much trouble for so many players. Tonight I’ve (hopefully) finally found the missing piece in this puzzle. And with the next update, these troubles should be gone forever (fingers crossed).
Well, in this case, a seemingly simple string to integer conversion just didn’t work out. And because this fight seemed to be like the others, I always overlooked what was wrong right in front of me. Now I know better – this combat is interestingly the only one in the whole game that does things different. Maybe it’s because it was one of the first combat scripts I’ve ever written for Silversword. Being a programmer can be hard… 😉
The satisfying dungeon crawler is here for your grinding pleasure.
Lootbox RPG is a classic dungeon crawler. At first sight some of you may say “oh no, another rogue clone”. But it is not. I hate rogue, because when you do something stupid, you die. And the game is over. Very frustrating.
Lootbox does things different.
“Oh no, an incoming call!”
no real time decisions, you can safely interrupt the game at any point.
“So late already?”
no need to exit the game, a real world clock can be switched on optionally.
“What? I AM DEAD?”
No permadeath, this is no rogue-clone. You can load/save at any time, or return to safety without losing all your money or equipped items.
“Damn! I died and I forgot to save!”
The game is autosaved every level, don’t panic.
“If I only could teach those damn rats what I’ve learned…”
You can come back to your old friends and show them your uber gear.
“Nice game, but my smartphone is over 5 years old…”
The game runs well on older devices, happy playing!
“Where can I buy money?”
Nowhere. This game is OFFLINE and there is NO Pay-To-Win mechanism. Sorry.
“Where is the chatroom?”
There are enough messengers already in the world, right?
“Where do I have to register?”
Register what? This game is OFFLINE. I don’t need your data, thanks anyway.
“Where is the premium version?”
There isn’t. Buy once, play endless.
The cold season is approaching. How about a visit to warmer places, like The Inferno? The kind demons there will surely have means to end cold feet and freezing hands. And if all else fails, perhaps a flying visit to Maruziel will cast a smile upon your… ehm… someones face. Hot battles and lots of lava will make you longing for a cooling, promised! Right now, the game is at version 2.7.0 on the App Store and waiting for you. So get ready player one!
The upcoming update 2.6.6 will contain a permanent coordinates display above the settings icon. This enhancement was made specifically for those players who want some help when navigating without the map function. In addition the cross-hair symbol in the top-right corner now contains a voice over which tells you your current position.
Silversword is on sale again. Don’t know what caused the issue. Enjoy!
The new update has hit the AppStore. Along with some bug fixes, here are the enhancements:
– you can give items to monsters in the party to improve their loyalty.
– more voice-over information for the direction you are facing (can be turned on in the settings).
– you can now turn off the chest pick lock game (can be turned off in the settings).
– new display mode for party grid. tap and drag the settings icon to switch modes.
– creature kills are now displayed on the boss kills page.
– the ending of the expansion Rise of the Dragons was enhanced.
Along with some other cool enhancements, the Update 2.6.4 will allow you to change the data that is displayed in the party grid.
Hope you’ll like it!
Dans quelques jours, Silversword va paraître en français.
And along with this update (2.6.3) there will be some major adjustments to the game mechanics:
- limited supply of armour and weapons in the starting area
- monk’s chain attack ability adjusted
- hopefully (still has to be done) the Hesitation spell revamped
- combat adjustments for groups with less than seven members
And soon Silversword will celebrate it’s fifth birthday. Still playing it? If not, join the game and join the community – it’s worth it! There are still things in the pipeline that will make it into a future update. Talking about updates, the next one (2.5.5) will be released shortly, and it will contain some bug fixes.
