Freeverse Updates Kill Monty!
10:05 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Freeverse has announced that Kill Monty!, its hit arcade-style game has been updated to version 1.0.2. Here's a list of games:

The enemy sprites for the cards and sharks are different- making the enemies easier to pick out among the chunks.
Fixed a bug that caused certain unlockables to be extremely hard to unlock. (It was just the final locked level, but since it's required to unlock several others, it caused a domino effect.)
Prefs now save, and play nice with CFPreferences.
Sound no longer fades away after a few games.
Command-F toggles fullscreen.
When you earn a high score, the High Scores title changes to "Enter Your Name", making things a little more obvious.
Also, the last name you entered in high scores is automatically input for you on subsequent high score entries.
Fixed a graphical glitch in the wave number display.
The Enter key on the keypad now accepts a high score name entry along with Return.
To download the latest Kill Monty!, head over to our sister site, Macgamefiles.com.

Spiderweb has recently uploaded two new scenarios for Blades of Avernum, one of its many old-school RPGs. The first scenario, titled "Lord Putidus," is recommended for lower levels, and is described as a horror scenario in which "an outer province faces a mysterous threat."

The second, named "Bahssikava," is rated Mature for violent descriptions, and is a "quest for the souls of the slithzerikai." This one recommends that players be from levels 35-45 for play.

Both scenarios can be downloaded directly from Spiderweb's site. Players are also encouraged to submit personal reviews after trying each scenario out.
