Update Notes

Version 1.18 will address the following issues:

Bloodless Playable Character

 – Name a new save file “BLOODLESS” to access the new playable character. 

Randomizer bug fixes 

 – Fixed the algorithm so it wouldn’t create invalid seeds 

– Implemented safety chests and lamp, so previously invalid seeds can now be completed. These safety chests will contain the required item to complete. 

Randomizer number of possibilities 

1152 combinations from settings: 

    • 3 GOAL x 2 KEY ITEM x 2 SAVE/WARP x 3 ITEM x 4 ENEMY DROP x 2 CRAFTING x 2 SHOP x 2 QUEST = 1152 combinations 

65,536 combinations per set 

The seed consists of 31 bits. 15 of those bits are used to store the settings generated by the initial choices the player makes. The remaining 16 bits are used to generate the randomness in the seed. 

    • 2^16 =  65,536 combinations. 

Total number of possible combinations for the entire mode: 

    • 1152 settings x 65,536 seed combinations = 75,487, 472 total combinations. 

Other Changes 

– Fixed issue with clan names showing in Save File Selection Screen 

– Fixed an issue with clan names in credits 

– Fixed minor audio issues 

That’s it for this title update that adds a free character to the excellent action game. Check out our review of it here.
