Yotunz!

A brand new update is here! Will you conquer the Tainted Throne with your new Mutation and Symbiont? It’s time to find out. Only the strongest will open the gates to the new world!

Check out the full changelog below.

New Mutation: Earthtwist

If you’re tired of enemies coming your way, impale them with a new mutation. Earthwist makes spikes grow from the ground in front of Yotun, stopping opponents for a short while. The mutation is available in 6 element variations. That’s not a spike they can easily pull out of their...entrails.

New Symbiont: Whip

Whips may be slow, but they have a wide range of attack. Swing yours at close enemies to give them a taste of what will come if they stand in your way. The last taste of their lives.

This Reptilz had really loooong entrails

New NPC: Tenigax

Tenigax is a reptile and a Tail vendor. Why not use your enemies’ solutions if it can make you stronger? Pay Tenigax enough Veri to enjoy your new Tail and passive bonuses.

New NPC: Merchant

The Merchant offers Equipment in exchange for Veri. He resides in Durnar, so if you forgot to get something in the Village, you can now worry about it a little bit less.

New Boss: Reptilz King

Watch out for the Reptilz King’s claws. They are sharp, strong, and deliver a life-threatening special attack. Better stay out of their range while you whip and Earthwist the boss away.

Arboria - Tainted Throne Update

New mechanic: Mutagens

You can enhance your Yotun with Mutagens in the Lock Rooms between levels. There are three categories of Mutagens—Toughness, Strength, and Focus. The bonuses each Mutagen grants to your Yotun are chosen from a randomly generated set, different for each run.

New Enemy: Trunk

Headless Trunks may be small, but they are fierce and can be deadly. Deal with them quickly.

New Enemy: Cyfly

Cyflies are more annoying than flies. This creepy combination of Yotunz organic matter and leftover scrap found in Durnar may haunt you in your dreams even after its death.

New Enemy: Ribjaw

Do Ribjaws have brains? It remains unclear, since nobody’s willing to stick their head into their jaws to check. They certainly do have quite long and strong arms, two pairs of them, which should be avoided.
