Editors’ Notes

In Rust Bucket, failure isn’t an option—it’s inevitable. A retro-styled puzzler from a studio that’s mastered them, this turn-based take on conundrums is tremendously fun. As you swipe through levels packed with peril, you’ll think long and hard about every move. But thanks to a generous checkpoint system, it’ll take no time to get back on your feet after the difficulty proves too much.

Reset Bucket

While Rust Bucket is an amazing game, and is probably the best example of Nitrome’s mastery of the turn system, but like all the others, I too found myself stumped. Not by the difficulty, but by the reset bug that happens every time you enter the level select screen. It really takes out of the whole game’s experience. This has happened to me twice while I was near the end of the castle world, and it’s extremely frustrating. Frankly, I’m surprised they haven’t fixed it already by the number of people who have pointed this out. Please fix it soon, so I can live to see the ending.


Listen up fellow awesome developers!!

I have a great idea for the endless update, you should give 10 coins every time when you level up for the next round. Once you earn the 10 coins, it doubles up every time when you level up, for example, you hit the door that says 1 and it grants you 10 coins and if you level up and hit 2 then it grants you 20 coins, if you hit 3 then 30 coins so on and so on, pls make this happen for the next update pls. That would be been better and awesome!! Keep up the good work you awesome developers and I hope this update idea happens. Bye and have a nice day!!
