  • Patch notes:

  • Playing the Funky’s Arcadium level while having the “Toughen Up” upgrade equipped no longer breaks the game at the end of minigames.
  • We fixed a location in the Goo Grotto where Zahra could fall through the ground and lock the game if falling from very high.
  • Using the Double Jump upgrade in the Firebrand Factory will no longer break the camera or certain monster closets.
  • Falling out of the caravan during the last second before an explosion in Bonecrackle Canyon no longer respawns you surrounded by invisible walls.
  • We fixed a spawn point in Bonecrackle Canyon where players could get stuck inside a truck upon respawning.
  • We fixed a bug with the camera at the beginning of Kaneda Boulevard.
  • We added visual guides to the moving platforms in the Bowhemoth in Funky’s Arcadium.
  • We fixed some camera jitter in RIFT HQ.

Boss Levels

  • We simplified the final challenge before the boss fight in Gootopia, and removed the jitter that was happening in it.
  • We adjusted the beginning of the Funderdome boss fight so that players can’t get pushed into the floor.
  • We fixed an issue where the Hanchobot’s hands would not explode properly.
  • We added a new intro to the final boss fight, which includes a terminal that lets you change upgrades if you die during the fight.

  • The Gootopia boss now properly gives you the “Nice Shot” commendation if defeated with a Fireball.
