Undead Assault Update for Apple Users posted by Alina on


Apple iPhone/iPad players-- Please join me in an angry, frustrated roar of NOOO to let out all your frustration. When you are done, take a deep breath and be reassured by some GOOD NEWS: This bug will WILL BE FIXED in the next update. 

What Happened?

The new Undead Assault update finally went live, but its' primary new feature, the one that lets you link to AQWorlds, unexpectedly broke upon release. I (Artix) feel just like you do... because I use an iPhone, bought on day 1, and have been eagerly waiting to redeem my armor in AQWorlds too. The feature was functioning correctly in testing-- so it was a complete shock when the new update went live and the new screens were not showing like they were supposed to.. The next Undead Assault Apple update will fix this. You do not have to do anything but join me in demonstrating the steel patience of a true undead hunter. 


  • The next update will fix this. 
  • You do not have to do anything. 
  • No, there is nothing you can do to make it work until the next update.
  • Yes, we thoroughly tested this before submission. It worked. We are investigating what happened and will share this with you when we get to the bottom of it (because we know you appreciate how open we are about these things with you.) 
  • If you bought before the update, you will still have the Diamyo pet (you see him on the title screen), but the screen where you buy Daimyo still shows a price tag-- and none of the buttons work. When the next fix goes live, that screen will say "OWNED!" and you will get a redeem button. 
  • If you bought Daimyo after the update, you see the correct screen but get a 404 error when attempting to redeem. When the next fix goes live, it will simply work as you expected. 
  • Do not delete your app, you will lose all your gold.
  • If you did delete your app, you can restore Daimyo to get him back.
  • Apples app approval process normally takes about a week.
  • We are going to get on our hands and knees and beg them to push it through faster since this is a critical bug. 

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support. I look forward to liking your extremely lengthy "NOOOOOOOOs!" in the comment section below. - Artix

All New Game Releases for Halloween posted by Alina on

Happy Mogloween! (That is Artix Entertainment's in-game version of a Halloween celebration.) Time to squash, bash, and slay your way to victory in this week's new game releases!

WHAT: Join musical guest stars The CrüxShadows for the ULTIMATE in-game concert 
WHEN: Friday, October 30th, 2015 at sundown... the night before Halloween!
WHO: Join tens of thousands of your fellow heroes and the Artix Entertainment team!
WHY: Because airship concerts, explosions, and pyramids on fire in-game concert are better than the sweetest Mogloween treat!

Sunday is the Last Chance for 7th Upholder!

October's almost over! If you want to become a 7th Upholder and gain access to all of our new StarSwords, the class, and the all-new Upholder-only zone, be sure to upgrade your account before Sunday night!


See what the rest of our game teams have planned for Mogloween when we update this post tomorrow!

Absolutely love it! I downloaded this as soon as I woke up this morning and I haven't stopped playing it since. It’s addicting and can be quite challenging at times. I love it. 5 star rating from me :D - Justin Serina 

This game is awesome!!! It's about time we have a running game that also does other things instead of just running lol! - Julio Miranda 

Good ol' Undead Slaying Fun I was ecstatic when it was announced that Undead Assault would release this afternoon at noon; "I can get it before I go to college!" Boy, I wasn't disappointed. Explosions, Undead Dragons, and TONS of rad unlockables! I'm pretty confident that I'll be playing the heck out of this between classes. :') Thanks for another great game, Artix Entertainment. - Z.

Undead Assault: Day #2 BUG SLAUGHTER posted by Alina on

Yesterday we launched our newest mobile game, the infinite runner - Undead Assault! Get it at now and let the undead slaying begin! Then share the game with your friends and give us a 5 star review on the app store if you like it! (Buying the 3X Gold Multiplier also unlocks the Daimyo pet in the mobile game and the Artix's Golden Paladin gear in AQWorlds!)


While YOU take on legions of the undead, Kraken (the lead coder) is wielding his battle-axe to slaughter some of the bug reports we have received.* 

If you have been experiencing any bugs while playing Undead Assault, read on to see what will be fixed in the next patch:

  • Pressing the purchase button causes a delay and the screen doesn't pop up fast enough (on Android devices)
  • Daimyo running in place when you die or playing in an armor other than the Golden Paladin
  • Gold respawns leading to Daimyo sliding along behind you 
  • Getting stuck in the special ability animation
  • Clicking too many times during the starting cutscene causes you to become stuck in place at the beginning of the stage

These patches should be out on Android devices tomorrow if all goes well and on Apple as soon as they put the patch live. **

For everyone on Tab and Note devices, we haven't forgotten you!  Kraken is addressing core bugs first, and then he has some ideas for how to optimize the game to improve your performance. That will take time but he DOES have ideas on how to give your game a boost!

* ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: Undead Assault had the fewest bug reports upon release - AWESOME job by the alpha testers! (If you would like to help us test our mobile games in the future, keep an eye on the Design Notes to see when we are hunting for more testing help!)

** As with all updates to our mobile games on Apple devices, we cannot control how quickly Apple publishes the updates, but we will let you know as soon as we see they are live!
