The X-Mess Update is here

The newest content update is here. This time we focused on adding more content and balancing existing features. We did consider your feedback after the last update and hope the changes we made reflect that. There were also tons of bugs fixed – too many in fact to list them all.

We also added the abilities for Camille and El Cazador. Camille now unleashes a hail storm of rockets on to her enemies. It’s not targeted, but it covers a huge area, annihilating everything that is unfortunate enough standing in the area of effect. El Cazadors super shot is more precise, as it should be for a marksman. His Striker Bullet is a powerful piercing shot that will bounce off of objects and kill everything in its way.

We’re still working on the other characters’ abilities – expect them to be included in the next update.

Unfortunately we couldn’t get the new bosses into this update. But we’ll give you their images instead, because we’re nice like that. 🙂 Boss-Encounter-DARTH-MATTER Boss-Encounter-SHARK
