In our first post about Weevil World on The Muddy Times, we're going to outline the changes seen in the version 1.7 update to the cross-platform game.
What is Weevil World?
Weevil World is the new expansion to Bin Weevils, the can be accessed from the Web, as well as Android and iOS devices. It's built using Unity, so is more future-proof than Bin Weevils which is built in Flash.
Included in this update:
Gameplay tips (Only 1 so far)
Players are now given tips on how to play the game. The only tip I have seen so far is on how to move - which is very confusing if you have not played the game before.
Small UI update
As you can see, the clothes option was removed since that feature has been moved to the Weevil Editor, that can be accessed through thee player card.
Clothes shop - now open!
At long last, the Clothes Shop is now open! From cool hoodies, to styling jeans and boots, the Clothes Shop is full of some pretty cool clothes! Personally, I think some black regular glasses would be a great addition, and would look better and red Weevil's faces, like my own. Perhaps a future update could bring the ability to change the colours of the times before buying, much like when Nest items are bought at Nestco on Bin Weevils.
Add clothes to your Weevil
After clicking edit on your player card, you are now presented with the clothes editor. Within the Clothes Editor, you can take off and put on all 6 different types of clothes. It's a lot better than the smaller menu at the top of the UI in previous versions. Some clothes can't be worn at the same time, which can be frustrating until you work out exactly what you can and can't put together. For example, the hoodie I am seen wearing in the picture cannot be worn with trousers, but the polo shirt can.
Change the look of your Weevil
The look of your Weevil can now be changed from Weevil World - however LOTS of features are missing, including different positions of eyes, Super Antenna and Legs, changing legs to a colour other than black, and some body shapes are missing. Hopefully this will be fixed soon, allowing full integration with Bin Weevils. Also, something to note is that changing from here is free - so if you don't have Super Antenna or Legs, or a triangular pointing down body, you can edit your weevil for free. If you have any of those features, you will loose them if you change your look Weevil World. If you have Super Antenna on Bin Weevils, you will have 3 antenna of the colour that your antenna used to be when you use Weevil World.
This kind of post will be released for each version update to Weevil World - although smaller version updates (e.g. 1.7 to 1.7.1) might receive smaller posts depending on what's included in the update.
