Magic Stones Update Adds Challenging New Quest
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In celebration of five years in indie games Winter Wolves Software has updated Magic Stones. The update brings the game to version 1.2.7 and introduces some changes to the combat system as well as a new quest featuring three challenging opponents.

To celebrate my 5 years into indie games, I've made an update to Magic Stones game. It includes a small new free quest called "Three Challenges", and several fix/improvements.

The new quest will see your druid face against 3 opponents only, but really powerful ones. You'll have to use all your skills to defeat them!

Other changes were made on the combat system, which now relies more on math calculations and less on random numbers.

You'll now be able to see an estimate damage before attacking each opponent. Now are also displayed the hit chance and the critical strike chance (expressed in percentages).

The hit chance is calculated based on avatar defense and speed, adding new value to quick avatars and another tactical element to take into consideration.
