Long Ago: A Puzzle Tale – Ver. ???

  • Release date: August 3rd 2021 (North America, Europe)
  • Patch notes:
  • adds Challenges campaign with 16 levels
  • adds 13 new achievements
  • adds new unlockable looks for the game ball
  • adds a quick level restart button
  • introduces reduced gems requirements to unlock new campaign chapters
  • adds the possibility to replay chapter songs from the story book
  • makes the in-game achievements screen also accessible from the pause menu
  • adds new move for story levels
  • provides other minor tweaks and improvements
  • introduces slight redesign for the hint system
    • Helps players earn more gems faster and even more so the players looking to earn three gems for all levels. When you finish a level, the hints bar will also be filled to match how many gems you’ve just earned – if not already filled past that level. For example, if you finish a level with two gems, the bar will instantly fill to the silver level. That means that on a replay, if you want to get hints about the three gems solution, you just need to wait a few minutes for the hints bar to charge to its fullest, instead of 10+ minutes you had to wait before.
  • Additional notes: none.
