Version 1.1 of Save The Pencil will be released very shortly (or perhaps is out already!) so we thought we’d take a minute to explain the update. First the bad news however, v1.1 doesn’t feature any new levels. The good news is, we are making great progress on v1.2 which we hope will be available in early/mid March, and which will feature brand new levels, dot types and enemies, plus a few other surprises!
So back to v1.1, what are the changes? Well, the most significant change is the addition of a store. As you play the game you will earn Blue Dots. Each Blue Dot you visit will be added to your Blue Dot account, and these Blue Dots can be spent on various items such as level skips, level completions and other items such as wallpapers, unlockables, etc. If you don’t have enough time to collect Blue Dots, you can also purchase Blue Dots in the store.
To skip a level, press the new green skip button during play. This will ask you whether you want to skip or complete the level. A skip simple unlocks the next level. A complete not only unlocks the next level, but also awards you three stars on the current level. Even if you have already unlocked the next level, a complete can still be used to give you three stars!
We’ve given everyone 400 Blue Dots to start with for free! Oh, and if you go to the Store and click the like us on Facebook button, you’ll get 250 additional free dots! (Don’t worry if you have already liked us, you can still click the button and it will detect that you have liked us and give you the free dots too!).
Also in the update, a news ticker has been added to the Main Menu screen. Please keep an eye out for this, as we will regularly be changing the text, letting you know exciting updates and the latest news.
Other than that there are few minor bug fixes and menu changes.
