Patch 1.2.6 is live on Android, and iOS Patch Information

v1.2.6 is here, Android users! It includes some great new content and some some bug fixes and tweaks for you. Here's what's new:
  • Added Bonus System: Now, collecting gear or spells can boost your stats
  • Added support to increase spell max level to 6
  • Added 5 new Key Items (Ancient Grimoire, Gladiator's Coin, Sorcerer's Mark, Medallion of XP, Shield of Favor)

  • Added saving of gold/epic coins after each area complete; if, for whatever reason, the game crashes, you won't lose all currency acquired
To our loyal iOS players: we wanted to give you an update on what's up over on the Apple side. As we've mentioned before, the app submission process with Apple is lengthier and frankly, a bit of a headache in some respects. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to resubmit our 1.2.5 patch. 

Because Apple won't allow a new build to be submitted while a current one is in review, we had a tough choice to make. Complicating matters is the fact that Apple's app submission team is on holiday vacation from Dec. 22-29, during which time app submissions are disabled.

With those factors in mind, we chose to cancel submission of 1.2.5 in order to submit the build for 1.2.6. We did so yesterday, and our hope is that it will be available before the Apple team takes their break. We're extremely grateful for your patience and know the situation isn't ideal, but we ultimately felt this was our best chance to get you a bigger, better update sooner, with some issues addressed that were detrimental to the play experience for many players.

As always, follow our development blog at http://dashquest.tinytitanstudios.com. We'd like to thank our players for their support over the past few months. Have a wonderful holiday season, and happy dashing!

There will be 4 pets at launch and more in the future. You will be able to have a pet fight along side you in battle. Pets can perform special abilities, boost your stats and more. Pets will also be able to level up and have accessories added to them for even greater boosts!

Take a look at the Dragon here:


In addition to Pets the other major feature we are working on is a new game mode, called Hero Mode. Full details on this are to be determined so stay tuned for more details.

Happy Dashing all, and if you enjoy the game and haven't yet rated us, please do so and share with your friends. It helps us indie devs a lot!
