It's Vacation time! 12 of the Egg Breaker Monkeys are packing their bags, and getting ready to set off on their annual summer vacations - there's just one catch; None of them can actually afford their airfare!

You'll need to help these poor, unfortunate monkeys raise the funds to achieve the vacations of their dreams! You're going to have to work hard and use those multipliers to earn enough gold to get the monkeys where they want to go! Thankfully, you have the Vacation Blitz Buff in the Vacation Monkey's stages to help you increases your chances to find multipliers and gold.

Summer Carnival Fun in BW2 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.


Summer Carnival Event 2015

The Carnival has returned to town! Get ready to play some games, help some Bushwhackian residents and win carnival tokens which you can exchange for cool prizes at the Carnival Event Vendor!

The Carnival Games:

A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.

- It costs 4 carnival tickets to play each game, and you can whack those tickets out of the bushes, or purchase them from Timmy in the Event area for Bush Bucks (30 Salvaged Tickets for 30 Bush Bucks)

- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games in your favour! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)

To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!

New for 2015
The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....

Introducing The Crusaders of the Lost Idols! 


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Victoria, British Columbia, July 23rd 2015 - Codename Entertainment is excited to release a brand new IP today, Crusaders of the Lost Idols! From the studio that brought players the worlds of Shards of Titan, Egg Breaker and Bush Whacker, comes a new and unique incremental game.

Crusaders of the Lost Idols is an idle game of heroic awesomeness! Players join their Crusaders to fight monsters, win gold and create the perfect formations for clicking or idling. Over time, players reset and see how many Idols they have earned.

In Crusaders of the Lost Idols, players can:
  • Fight waves of monsters as their Crusaders march through an endless world.
  • Help out by completing quests and defeating terrible bosses.
  • Unlock chests to find awesome loot and equip their Crusaders with epic gear.
  • Arrange their Crusaders in the optimal formation to maximize gold, DPS or click damage.
  • Progress through 100+ area levels at launch.
  • Get bonus power and gold from all the achievements.
  • And much more!
“It is great to launch Crusaders of the Lost Idols.” says Eric Jordan, CEO of Codename Entertainment. “Our company makes games which we like to play. We played Cookie Clicker when it was first released. We have enjoyed many of the idle games which followed as the genre developed. Crusaders of the Lost Idols is a unique addition to the idle genre which we are proud to share with the gaming community.”

It is currently available in early access on Facebook and will be accessible from Kong Plus Beta shortly.

ABOUT CODENAME ENTERTAINMENT: Codename Entertainment was founded in 2008 in Victoria, B.C. by David Whittaker and Justin Stocks with the successful launch of their first title, "Egg Breaker". Egg Breaker's success hatched three successive games, Egg Breaker 2, Egg Drop and the current title in the series, Egg Breaker Adventures. Created in 2010, the classic Bush Whacker appealed to adventurers who were looking to smack some shrubbery and see what popped out. Following its success, Bush Whacker 2 was released in 2012, and celebrated its third anniversary earlier this year with much cake. It was not a lie. In 2014, the company launched Shards of Titan for players looking for an epic role playing adventure through a fantasy land shattered long ago by a terrible cataclysm.
