Introducing Missions! 

Today we launch an ambitious update to Crusaders of the Lost Idols that adds an even deeper layer of strategy - and it's completely free.

Now you can:
  • Unlock event Crusaders you may have missed!
  • Win missing gear for event Crusaders!
  • Earn enchantment points, jeweled chests, additional buffs and more!
How do I do all that, we hear your cry. Well, if you can spare the Crusaders from your formation, you can send them off on side missions for awesome rewards! However, there's a trade-off which will make you think carefully about your decisions.

How Do They Work?

You can find the Missions in the Daily Quests tab. Each mission will have specific requirements for you to meet if you want to ensure success. For instance, a mission might require you to send a male Crusader and a female Crusader, or a buffer and a DPS, or require having a certain amount of enchantment points or specific gear pieces on a Crusader to increase your chance of success. The more requirements you can fulfill, the more likely you are to succeed.

Each mission has specific Crusader requirements. Match the requirements to increase the chance of successfully completing them.


You'll have to make tough decisions managing your Crusader roster to beat the missions while still being able to complete the main campaigns and events. Not only is there a chance your mission might fail, but dangerous missions have a chance to incapacitate one of your returning Crusaders for a period of time, making them ineligible for regular objectives!

Missions range from reasonably short to epic voyages. Short missions include 10-minute forays for fun while other missions could take days to complete.

Missions can keep your Crusaders busy for a few minutes all the way up to days at a time.


The rewards on offer are worth it though. Some missions enable you to finally unlock past event Crusaders you have missed out on previously. Other missions will enable you to earn missing gear for your favourite event Crusader along with various other missions that award Enchantment Points, quick bounties of Gold, normal Jeweled chests, and temporary buffs that activate right away.

Rewards for successfully completing a mission include unlocking past Event Crusaders, their gear, jeweled chests, Enchantment Points and buffs.


To celebrate this giant new feature we've awarded a weekend buff to 5 Crusaders and there's an exclusive new jeweled chest available until Monday May 30 at Noon PDT! Don't miss out!

Check out the new Missions in-game now!

Summer Sport Fun in the Sun

It's time to help the Bushwhackia Pee-Wee league coaches! They need supplies to help whip their various teams into shape and take home the AAA championship trophies! Whack them up in the bushes, starting with soccer balls and water bottles! Plus, the first coach needs some Jerseys!

Claire, the clerk from the Town Hall, needs your help to discover information about a local sports Legend! The stages of this quest will unlock throughout the event. If you completed this quest last year or the year before, different quests will replace the original ones, sending you out in the world to find more sporting memorabilia.

It's not just about supplies to keep the kids going: the parents and coaches have quests for you to embark on as well! Look for those interspersed with Claire's quest!

Introducing Generation 6 Pets! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Gotta find 'em all! A new selection of cute and scaly critters are now available to be your companions!

Those weirdly random abandoned eggs scattered all over Bushwachkia have been switched up and all new pets are ready to hatch when you accept the "Find an Egg" quest from Misty. She will also have all the Generation 6 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.


Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 6:
  • Misty will no longer let players abandon Gen 5 pet eggs that they are hatching (they're now too rare). Only current generation pet eggs can be abandoned during hatching. Please note that if you're in the middle of hatching a pet, then that egg will still hatch into whatever pet it would have been before.

  • Generation 5 pet eggs can now be found in Quester's Satchels (with the same limitations as the Generation 1, 2, 3 and 4 eggs, which will still be available in satchels as well). Generation 5 pet eggs are now more expensive to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store.

  • Hank now sells a random assortment of Generation 6 pets (instead of Generation 5) for Bush Bucks.

PAGAS changes for Generation 6:
  • Generation 6 pet eggs are now available to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store, however you cannot buy any of them until you have at least five (5) Generation 6 pets.

  • The Pet Progress dialog now includes Generation 6 pets. 10 new pets that all players can unlock!


And now, without further ado, the information you've all been waiting for:

Generation 6 Pets:
  • Chinchilla
  • Pelican
  • Orange Dart Frog
  • Porcupine
  • Koala
  • Triceratops
  • Grey Squirrel
  • Forest Fairy
  • White Swan
  • Lobster

New Event! A Song of Thrones 

Our new event, A Song of Thrones, sees Queen Siri's throne of pillows under fire from enemy factions. They'll stop at nothing and no one to depose Queen Siri, so the band must recruit new Crusaders to help defend the crown.

New Crusder:
Leerion, the Royal Dwarf

New Crusader:
Brogon, Prince of Dragons

New Crusader Leerion is the youngest of his siblings with a face only a mother could love on his large, knobbly head. However, what he lacks in physical features, he makes up by being a silver-tongued charmer and a capable treasurer.

Until recruited from the first objective, he'll put his charms to use distracting any female Crusaders in the formation and debuff their DPS by 50%. Once recruited he'll use his wily intellect to increase your gold find.

The second new Crusader is Brogon, a scaly dragon that is totally yoked, brah. When he's not in the dragon gym, he's downing brewskis with his bromies. So much swag can't be contained. When the Crusaders first meet Brogon in the second objective, he's a total anti-bro. He periodically breathes fire, disrupting adjacent Crusaders by reducing their DPS by 50%.

Once you've completed the second objective, it's all bropacetic from then on, and he'll heal non-adjacent Crusaders before he brings the brocalypse by slowing the furthest enemy with his Molten Shoes ability.

The remaining three objectives include Minifinger's Debts, where the Crusaders must escort the Master of Gold to are 150. Every 1-5 minutes he randomly spends all your coins paying off the kingdom's debts requiring you to intercept the cash for upgrades or lose out.

The Flaming Lady objective is another escort mission. The night is long and full of terrors, so it's important to bring along suitable lighting. The Flaming Lady and three braziers (that's *braziers*) take up four slots. She peeks into the flames periodically, buffing and debuffing Crusaders as the flames prophesize.
The final new event objective is The White Runners. These immortal wintery monsters can't be killed. Instead, they stack-up until you're overwhelmed and wipe you out. You'll continue to kill other monsters, but it'll require your best tanking strategies to win the day.
The event will run until Tuesday May 31st at Noon PDT.

All Good Things.....Egg Breaker Adventures 

All Good Things

Hi Breakers,

It weighs heavy on our hearts to share that the Egg Breaker series is no longer receiving enough interest to continually develop new content. After seven and a half years of egg breaking fun and over 70 billion eggs broken, we are releasing our final new content monkey: the Sunset Puzzle Monkey.

Along with the Sunset Puzzle Monkey, we will be giving all players a very special free Sunset Hat with a powerful buff. Please accept this gift as a token of our appreciation for your support over the years.

After this final release of content, we will no longer be developing new content for the Egg Breaker series. The volunteer chat mod program will be suspended and Erika will no longer be in chat on Thursdays.

However, the existing Egg Breaker Adventures game will stay on indefinitely and your progress will not be lost. We will keep the game and the chat live, so you can come still break eggs and chat with your friends. Existing events will continue to repeat each year.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you. Many of you have been with us from the very beginning and it has been an amazing adventure we have gone on together.

We cannot thank you enough for all the years of egg breaking!

P.S. This news is only applicable to the Egg Breaker series. We continue to provide updates and new content for Bush Whacker 2 and Crusaders of the Lost Idols.

Happy Smashing!

2016 Gorgeous Garden Photo Contest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

The Gorgeous Garden Contest starts today!

We want to see YOUR talented, artistic skills at gardening/art. It's super easy to get started, just start growing plants. When you've got enough, you can begin to lay out your designs in the event area. Once you've managed to get at least a D from each of the judges, you're golden for entering the contest!

How the Contest Works

When you're ready, talk to the photographer (he's got a yellow ! above his head) and have him take a picture of your fantasy garden. You can submit as many times as you would like, but only your most recent submission will get the votes. Each time you do submit a screenshot, your votes will reset to make it fair for everyone, so plan carefully! Submissions will be accepted until *Friday, May 13th, 2016, - Noon PDT.*

You Get to Vote!

YOU get to vote too! The coveted 'User's Choice' award is picked by the Bush Whacker Community, and has a prize of 50 Bush Bucks! You can vote for as many submissions as you like, and at the end of the event the top submission as voted by YOU the players will be awarded the prize.

Notes about Voting!
  • Asking to visit the contest or the voting page no longer takes you outside the game; it simply loads the contest/voting page over top it! Finished voting? You can easily return to the event area by clicking "Back to Game" at the bottom of the screen. Easy as pie!

  • Can't decide between two layouts? That’s ok! You now have a way to say "Next Please," and two new images will be loaded up for you!

  • Tired of seeing the same layouts previously? We've improved the system, you should see the same layouts repeated far more infrequently now.

You can vote until *Friday, May 13, 2016 @ Noon PDT.*

And the CNE winners are...

At the end of the event, the entire Codename Entertainment Studio will review the submissions and choose their favourites, with 3 lucky players per platform being awarded prizes of 250, 200, and 150 Bush Bucks for first, second and third. All winners will be published in the blog when we've made our decision.

Start Growing!
