Following on from the recent 4.2 and 4.2.1 releases, Evowok Breeder version 4.2.2 is now available to download.
This update started with the intention of adding a few new Abilities to the game (perhaps for a future expansion), but in the course of playtesting I ended up discovering a whole slew of bugs and other issues that deserved attention (sigh), so the change list pretty quickly became quite substantial!
The detailed changelog can be found in the usual place, but below is a summary of the most important changes and new features:
- Added three new area-effect attacks to the game (Claw Spin, Thunderstorm and Aura Of Confusion!)
- Ranged attacks that miss their targets now have a chance of hitting other evowok in the fight (friend or foe!), pinning attacks are now always successful against existing targets on successive turns, brain injuries reduce Psyche, and defensive excretions are shown graphically in matches.
- Abilities now have a revised and more consistent success chance calculation, and higher base success chances for all Abilities. The Tab key can be held when selecting an Ability in the fight interface to display the current relevant success chances of all Abilities instead of the raw Skill Level information.
- Made lots of little interface improvements throughout the game.
- Fixed a lot of bugs!
