Report article RSS Feed Megabyte Punch Update 10

Megabyte Punch is updated! Again! As fitting for an update in Beta, lots of fixes and tweaks next to a lot of minor additions.

Posted by DionReptile on Feb 20th, 2013

In this update, we've added a little home in the village which contains your part collection and all the colors you've collected in a similar interface. Also nice are the Doro portals that appear in co-op adventure mode when fighting inside a closed room, which allows your teammates to join the fight from the outside.

Update 10 screrenshots

One of the minor additions is a standard forward ground attack. Previously, doing this just gave the neutral ground jabs, so it will certainly take some getting use to. It can however be very useful as a quick follow up and even as finisher on high damage, so please give it a shot. To allow more actual combo's (as in a sequence of hits during which the opponent cannot escape), we've increased the duration of stun by hits and decreased the gravity and fall speed while stunned. We'll still need to add certain speed enhancing and combo breaking techniques later on, but it's a start. Shield mechanics also changed, removing the shieldbreak knockback, keeping the shieldbreak damage, adding shielding and stunned animations.

There really are too many small changes to discuss, so I suggest just trying for your self and maybe you'll discover something new. Remember that nothing is final yet, but we still like to know what you think!

Whenever I touch a wall I turn around... And I used to use special+up with a direction, and it would use the special+up ability, now it does the special+side... But the rest, is amazing. I really like the new subprogram deadlands visual update, the skeleton wearing headphones made me chuckle. The new color change feature is incredible! The names are actually my favorite part...
