Battle the Bug – Marble It Update

Battle the Bug
– October 13 –


October is upon us – ’tis the month of witches, candy, ghosts, and zombies!

And a welcome back to the newsletter, players! This week, we wrestle with a nasty bug, engage with the week’s challenges, see a boom in speedrun world records, and monkey around with some custom levels.

Let’s a go!

A Challenge with Weekly Challenges

Last week, we started receiving reports of Mayhem players getting stuck on start-up of the game. We discovered that the game was getting confused at an error with the Mayhem weekly challenges and refusing to cooperate.
The current workaround is to launch the game with airplane mode on until getting to the main menu (no microwaves necessary). We appreciate the reports, the help, and the patience on this!

We’ve submitted a fix and are awaiting approvals and rollouts – we’ll keep you posted on the stubborn start-up!

Weekly Challenge: Offroad

This week’s challenge takes us back to the days of roaming free without the pressure of picking up those precious gems. No responsibilities, no changes to physics, no other shenanigans. Just get. To. The. Goal.

Simple and easy!
