Free update for Mystic Mine available

September 2nd, 2009 No comments

Our game Mystic Mine has gotten some improvements, and we are making the update freely available. Here are the most important changes:

  • The multiplayer game now tracks the overall scores for all played levels. This means that you can organize a tournament with your friends, and at the end see who won the most games.
  • Mystic Mine is now running faster, so slower machines are now better supported.
  • The first levels of adventure mode are now even more fun.

If you bought the game and want to receive the latest version, just mail me at koen@koonsolo.com and I will reactivate your download. And for those who don’t have the full game yet,  play the new demo and have fun!
