One of my friends Mark just released his new game into beta. The game is called mystic arena and is a multiplayer magic battle game. There are a total of 100 beta accounts in this initial first round so be quick before it’s full up.
Entering the beta will cost you 1$ to ensure that you have an insentient to check back on the game frequently.
Play the game here: http://mysticarena.com/
Yesterday, the 1st of Febuary, I released an update to the game, but did not have the time to post about it here before now. This is the basic change log:
Fixed bug the minimap would be rendered incorrectly
In the previous release I introduced secret passages / platforms, these bricks respectively looks like a black block and an empty area. Thus the passage should be fully transparent on the minimap, to implement this I just did a not so clever quick-fix that introduced a bug in the way coins where rendered. This has now been corrected. At the same time I changed black bricks back so they now render fully transparent in the minimap.
Changed how secret passages / blocks works
Secret blocks will now become visible when touched once. The hope is that this modification will remove some of the annoyance the old model where. I also changed the layout to not have the S for secret any more as people did not get why it was there.
The new look of the secret blocks
I am still not 100% sure I like the way it currently work, so you might see some changes to it over the next few days still. (This is why we have beta!)
Fixed graphical errors in the shop
The ultimate fan smiley where showing the wrong graphics, this is now fixed!
Added terminator smiley
Added a new terminator smiley. It’s quite expensive right now as the idea was to give it a special ability like the ninja. Again I did not have time to complete that part but decided to release the graphics regardless. Thus again expect updates!
The terminator smiley
So, I still think that the ultimate fan smiley is still one of the best ideas I have ever added to the game. But in hindsight I should have realized that a game that has 40k+ players every day might result in quite a large volume of physical mail. At-least my postman just told me that he do not think it’s funny.

This just goes to show that I am not a particularly smart man.

While I do not want to talk much about how magic works internally to prevent abuse, I think you will find the following information usefull.
The chances of finding a coin are secret, but when you do find one, this is the chances to find the different types.
