Summer Carnival Fun in BW2 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Summer Carnival Event 2015

The Carnival has returned to town! Get ready to play some games, help some Bushwhackian residents and win carnival tokens which you can exchange for cool prizes at the Carnival Event Vendor!

The Carnival Games:

A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.

- It costs 4 carnival tickets to play each game, and you can whack those tickets out of the bushes, or purchase them from Timmy in the Event area for Bush Bucks (30 Salvaged Tickets for 30 Bush Bucks)

- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games in your favour! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)

To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!

New for 2015
The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....

Keep an eye out for a new addition to the event zone later on, that's a splashing good time!

Event Achievements- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!

There are up to 13 possible achievements that can be picked up during the Summer Carnival 2015 event, dependent on your game history.

Achievements Returning in 2015:
Step Right Up - Win a Prize Token gaming at the Carnival!
We have a Winner - Win 8 Prize Tokens at once at the Carnival.
Carnival Ace - Win 8 Prize Tokens at all 4 Carnival Games.
Gotta Try 'Em All! - Play all four games offered at the Carnival!
Big Time Bonus Buyer - Purchase 10 Bonus Prize Packs from the Carnival!
Sweet Tooth - Help William satisfy his Sweet Tooth. Or not.
Nostalgic Whacker - Repair the teleporter and fulfill your duty…

Added/Changed for 2015
Carni-Value! - Purchase all the 2015 Carnival Event items.*
Dunk-a-Thon! - Dunk all eight unique Carnival Event dunk-ees!

* The Carnival Mini Golf piece is NOT included in the Carni-Value! achievement, and therefore it is not required to purchase it.

Party at My Place - Buy all 6 house items from the 2012 Carnival!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When will the last quest unlock?
    All quests will be unlocked by the 11th day of the event.

  • Where can I see my achievements and their progress?
    Click on the inventory icon and then click on the Achievements list (gold star). Look for the ones listed above in that list.

  • Where can I buy Last Year's items?
    There are two vendors. The one in the tent has this year's items. The other is the one with the party hat and will have all previous year items for Bush Bucks.

  • What contributes to my 100% progress?
    You need 200 plays of any combo of the games to get 100%. Just whack up tickets and turn in quests to get tickets as well.

    It helps you rig the game and improve your chances of getting 8 tokens.

Introducing The Crusaders of the Lost Idols! 


Victoria, British Columbia, July 23rd 2015 - Codename Entertainment is excited to release a brand new IP today, Crusaders of the Lost Idols! From the studio that brought players the worlds of Shards of Titan, Egg Breaker and Bush Whacker, comes a new and unique incremental game.

Crusaders of the Lost Idols is an idle game of heroic awesomeness! Players join their Crusaders to fight monsters, win gold and create the perfect formations for clicking or idling. Over time, players reset and see how many Idols they have earned.

In Crusaders of the Lost Idols, players can:
  • Fight waves of monsters as their Crusaders march through an endless world.
  • Help out by completing quests and defeating terrible bosses.
  • Unlock chests to find awesome loot and equip their Crusaders with epic gear.
  • Arrange their Crusaders in the optimal formation to maximize gold, DPS or click damage.
  • Progress through 100+ area levels at launch.
  • Get bonus power and gold from all the achievements.
  • And much more!
“It is great to launch Crusaders of the Lost Idols.” says Eric Jordan, CEO of Codename Entertainment. “Our company makes games which we like to play. We played Cookie Clicker when it was first released. We have enjoyed many of the idle games which followed as the genre developed. Crusaders of the Lost Idols is a unique addition to the idle genre which we are proud to share with the gaming community.”

It is currently available in early access on Facebook and will be accessible from Kong Plus Beta shortly.

ABOUT CODENAME ENTERTAINMENT: Codename Entertainment was founded in 2008 in Victoria, B.C. by David Whittaker and Justin Stocks with the successful launch of their first title, "Egg Breaker". Egg Breaker's success hatched three successive games, Egg Breaker 2, Egg Drop and the current title in the series, Egg Breaker Adventures. Created in 2010, the classic Bush Whacker appealed to adventurers who were looking to smack some shrubbery and see what popped out. Following its success, Bush Whacker 2 was released in 2012, and celebrated its third anniversary earlier this year with much cake. It was not a lie. In 2014, the company launched Shards of Titan for players looking for an epic role playing adventure through a fantasy land shattered long ago by a terrible cataclysm.

Summer Season and Mount Updates! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Have we got some exciting changes for you today!

Summer Season at the Theatre!

The Outdoor Theatre is now presenting FOUR all-new plays based on popular summer films! Check them out starting today! Plus, there are a couple new achievements related to this change! But watch them before they're gone! The plays will be viewable until September 30 at 11:59 PM PDT, when the summer season ends!

Going forward, the Summer Season will run from June 1st through September 30th every year!

Mount Updates!

Number 1: now you can rename your mounts! Talk to Clint in the Commons to change the name of your currently equipped mount.

Number 2: A dozen new achievements and five new titles relating to mounts!

Number 3: Mounts will only have EIGHT bonuses including the starting buffs.

What does this mean?

New mounts:
Your mount will have the Speed Bonus, its random 5% starting buff, and once it has 6 other random buffs, the starting buff and those 6 will be the ones that will level up with each new level.

Old Mounts:
For all those mounts you currently have more than 8 buffs on, the lowest magnitude buffs will be randomly removed and their bonuses distributed among the buffs that can level up until the mount only has 8 buffs.

As well, your potential next level up bonuses may change based on your new buffs because next level buffs will only include existing buffs.

Note: Because of this change, using Pristine Feed for a buff that isn't one of your 7 may waste that feed.

PAGAs Rewards for Over 100 Pets!

There a lot of pets in the game, so we've added more rewards to PAGAs for unique pets.

120 Pets: Get Unique DNA x4!!!
140 Pets: The Cloud Bird pet from Cloudland!!!
160 Pets: A Pet Controller Trinket!!!**
180 Pets: Unique DNA x5!!!
200 Pets: Level 40 Pet Treat x 5!!!

**The Pet Controller trinket turns you into your pet when you equip it! Become a Canada Goose riding an Eagle! Or a Robot on an Elephant! Or just your favourite pet ever going around whacking bushes!

Plus we've done a whole host of housekeeping updates here.

Celebrate the season on the forums!
