Man, Apple is getting so quick with approving these updates that we can barely keep up with the blog posts! Some of you may have already noticed that Episode 3.6 is out which introduces Hook Champ as a new playable character:
...and adds special traits for three characters. Here is one of them, Sensei Evan, blasting away with dual grenade launchers:
Sensei gets these right from the start. The other specialities include Gangster Gore's dual-wielded machine guns and Ninja Man's speed boost when receiving damage.
Other changes include improved environment and character animation - all the characters breathe and bushes and trees sway in the wind.
Finally, the bug with in-app purchase characters having been unlocked by default when you updated from Episode 3 to Episode 3.5 is now addressed. After you update, all premium characters will appear locked and as the info screen advices you, YOU ONLY EVER NEED TO PAY ONCE for the characters. If you purchased them before, just tap the "buy now" button and log in with the iTunes account you used the make the purchase with originally and it will unlock the character for free. If you didn't purchase the character before, then you have to pay for it.
In short, in app purchases in Minigore work just like the App Store - after purchase, you can download the characters for free over and over again. Episode 3.5 can be considered a "free preview" of Kid Gore and Gangster Gore for anyone who experienced the bug. :)
Also, Episode 4, the multiplayer episode, is constantly in the works and we are likely to submit one or two more smaller updates like 3.6 before it hits the store.
