Graffiti Games and Space Mace Games announced that Joggernauts gets a big update today that adds new guest characters, new levels and improvements on modifiers and difficulty.
The new guest characters include:
- Cowpokes from West of Loathing
He was found in a makeshift saloon, which is odd because normally space ships don’t have saloons, and definitely not in their cargo rooms. I mean, there was that one TNG episode, but… well, nevermind.
- Hue and Val from Runbow
They were discovered trying to turn a box of Switchalizer 5000s into some sort of color-based racing game.
- CommanderVideo from BIT.TRIP Runner
He managed to climb a set of stairs, slide into an escape pod, and land on the moon Splizorp. He should be easy to find in one of the new levels, though.
Additionally, Joggernauts has three new levels. These are all escape pod rescue missions where you won’t find more trophies, but you will find unlockable characters.
Other updates include:
- Update Modifiers Menu
In Joggernauts you can modify certain aspects of the game, such as the game’s speed and the number of shared hearts for your team. In the update you can now access the Modifiers menu during level play from the pause menu. You will have to restart the level from the nearest checkpoint, but it is a lot more convenient than having to go back to the world map to make changes.
- Game Difficulty Updates
Even with these Modifiers, some levels had sections that were too difficult for even the best runners. Some minor mechanical changes were made that you might not even notice visually, but that will hopefully make the learning curve not so steep.
