Crusaders of the Lost Idols: Mobile Retirement 


It's with heavy hearts that today we announce the retirement of the mobile version of Crusaders of the Lost Idols. While its release was an awesome milestone for us at Codename, regrettably we haven't attracted the player base we need to continue to maintain it, and the time and effort we use keeping it up to date could be better spent on the PC version of the game.

But don't worry! You can still play Crusaders on a computer on Steam, Kongregate, Armor, Facebook, Miniclip and the all-new Codename Games website! Plus we'll be continuing to support the computer version with the extra development time we'll have freed up!


What's Happening and What Does it Mean?

We want to give you plenty of time to transfer your progress to one of the other platforms where Crusaders is playable. If you currently only play on mobile, you can link your progress to a PC platform by:
  • Pressing the Link button in the in-game Settings menu, and generating a code.



    Settings menu, with Link button highlighted.



    Link Dialog, where you press the Generate a Code button.

  • Load Crusaders on the computer on the platform where you wish to play. Available platforms are Steam, Kongregate.com, ArmorGames, Miniclip, Facebook and the Codename Games website.

  • Play through the tutorial for the game on that platform until you complete it.

  • Type the code from your mobile device into the Linked Accounts option in the Options menu in Crusaders on your computer.
If you don't currently play on mobile, we are no longer offering the option to link your PC progress to your mobile device. We will be disabling purchasing in-game on mobile devices with this update as well.

The mobile app will no longer be available to play or to download as of May 1st, 2019. We will however keep the app up to date with new events and crusaders until that point. After May 1st, if your device has kept the app updated, you will still be able to link your mobile progress off your device, however you will no longer be able to play.

While the era of the mobile version is ending, it does mean that the Crusaders team will be able to focus all their energy on the computer version and allow us more time to add new features and make improvements to the game.


But What About the Ad Bonus?

We'll be adding a passive 25% Idol bonus to all resets, available no matter where you play the game. That's right, no more having to click buttons or watch videos for extra Idols. They'll just happen!

Because we'll be adding this new passive bonus for Idols, we'll be removing the ad bonus system from the various platforms where it's currently offered.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the mobile version of Crusaders of the Lost Idols over the years. We look forward to seeing you all in Crusaders on the PC and we hope you enjoy what this extra development time will help us do to the game!
