Hallowe'en Event & Haunted Mansion Photo Contest! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy Hallowe'en Bushwhackia!

Similar to the Spring Grow-A-Thon Event (and the Gorgeous Gardens Photo Contest), Hallowe'en in Bush Whacker is primarily focused around designing a wickedly haunted mansion with which to scare the children of Bushwhackia. It's super easy to get started: Whack Bushes! Find Pumpkins! Trade for Decorations! Once you feel you've got enough, start laying out your design inside. (You can also purchase the same decorations for Bush Bucks from "The Cop").

You do not have to place all your collected decorations on display in the Mansion in order for them to count towards "Hallowe'en Completionist," they will count so long as they are within your inventory!

The goal is to scare the pants off 8 children, all of varying levels of bravery. The more you scare them, the more candy you'll earn in return. And you're going to want that candy so you can trade it for items at the event store!

It's a doubly good thing the Haunted Mansion missed Glenda the Witch by inches; not only do you trade your pumpkins with Glenda for basic Haunted House decorations, you'll be getting several quests from her throughout the event for special "interactive" decorations. You will need all four to complete the "Hallowe'en Completionist" achievement. As you complete each of her four quests, you can request help from your friends* to increase the decoration's scariness. Each of them will start at 50 "scariness"; talk to "The Construction Worker" to ask for help from your friends to increase each of the decorations effectiveness!

*Platforms which do not support Friend Lists will have an adjusted static scariness.

Gotta Collect them all!

Want some crazy creatures to add "life" to your House's experience? Every few days, a new creature will become available which you can request from friends* from "The Cop". You'll need one of each creature to complete the "Hallowe'en Completionist" achievement; if you miss a creature, you can still purchase one from "The Cop" for Bush Bucks.

Creatures are available on the following schedule:
Black Cats - AVAILABLE at Event launch, UNTIL Sun Oct 26, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Witches - AVAILABLE Sun Oct 26, Noon PDT UNTIL Tues Oct 28, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Zombies - AVAILABLE Tues Oct 28, Noon PDT UNTIL Thurs Oct 30, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Bats - AVAILABLE Thurs Oct 30, Noon PDT UNTIL Sat Nov 1, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Spiders - AVAILABLE Sat Nov 1, Noon PDT UNTIL Mon Nov 3, 11:59:59 AM PST
Vampires - AVAILABLE Mon Nov 3, Noon PST UNTIL Wed Nov 5, 11:59:59 AM PST
Franken-Dogs - AVAILABLE Wed Nov 5, Noon PST UNTIL Event End

*Platforms which do not support Friends Lists can receive a single creature as they become available, by speaking to "The Cop."

Of course, Hallowe'en is more than decorating and scaring...

...It's also about the CANDY! And there is *plenty* of that to be found in Bush Whacker. Not will you earn it by scaring the snot out of children, but the myriad of quests you'll complete through the event will net you some significant goodies as well. And of course, starting on October 31st you'll be able to wander through out the lands of Bushwhackia to Trick or Treat in every major area! Each area (ie, "The Castle" will have an NPC standing in front of a large pile of candy. Talk to them starting October 31st, and you can earn some of their stash - 4 new NCPs have been added for the Castle, Underwater, Volcano and Mushroom areas!

New for 2014:
We've added two additional quests to the event, so be sure to keep an eye out for them, as they will unlock over the course of the event!

How the Contest Works

When you're ready, talk to the photographer standing next to the House (he's got a yellow ! above his head) and have him take a picture of your creepy layout. You can submit as many times as you would like, but each time you take a new picture, any prior votes are lost and you start over again so plan carefully!

Submissions will be accepted until *Friday, November 7th, 2014, - Noon PDT*, coinciding with the end of the event.

YOU get to vote too!

The coveted "User's Choice" award is picked by the Bush Whacker Community, and has a prize of 50 bush bucks! You can vote for as many submissions as you like, and at the end of the event the top submission as voted by YOU the players will be awarded the prize.

Based on Player feedback received after the Spring Garden Contest, we've made some improvements to the voting system:
  • Asking to visit the contest or the voting page no longer takes you outside the game; it simply loads the contest/voting page over top it! Finished voting? You can easily return to the event area by clicking "Back to Game" at the bottom of the screen. Easy as (pumpkin) pie!
  • Can't decide between two layouts? That’s ok! You now have a way to say "Next Please," and two new images will be loaded up for you!
  • Tired of seeing the same layouts previously? We've improved the system, you should see the same layouts repeated far more infrequently now.
Voting is open until *Monday, November 7th, 2014 @ Noon PDT*

And the CNE Winners are...

Once the submissions are closed at the end of the event, the entire Codename Entertainment studio will review the submissions and choose their favourites for each platform; 3 lucky players from Armor Games, Big Fish Games,, Facebook and Kongregate will all be awarded prizes of 250, 200, and 150 bush bucks. We'll post also post *all* the winners on the Codename Bush Blog!

The CNE winners will be announced the week of November 10th in the in-game news and on the Bush Blog!

Ready? Go Get Your Decoration On! The Hallowe'en Event will run until Friday November 7, 2014 at Noon PST.

Get Ready for SUGAR OVERLOAD in EBA! 

Egg Breakers, prepare for SUGAR OVERLOAD!

The Zombie Monkey has shuffled into town and needs your help collecting ALL THE CANDY to fill up his pumpkin bags. Each bag gets progressively bigger, requiring more and more addicting sugary sweetness to fill up!

Note: We are closely monitoring your event feedback after each holiday event, and are making ongoing improvements to the balance of event gameplay. Want to have your opinion heard? Make sure you send us your thoughts at the end of the event!

General Event details:

- Find Hallowe'en Candy in eggs to fill candy bags with candy earned in the Zombie Monkey's special stages to advance between the bronze, silver and gold levels.
You'll need to fill…
…6 Bags of Candy to advance from Bronze stage to Silver stage,
…6 Bags of Candy to advance from Silver stage to Gold stage,
…12 Bags of Candy at the Gold stage, as well as having won all 12 prizes to earn the Hallowe'en Event Trophy!.

How the Event works:

The multiplier buff which was introduced in the Back to School event was well received in feedback so it's back! Here's the low-down on how the buff works:
  • The Hallowe'en buff has been removed entirely, in its place is an daily upgradable multiplier buff which increases each time you feed the Zombie Monkey Hallowe'en Event Tokens, up to a buff of 8x:
    • Feed the monkey once, increase the buff to 2x,
    • Feed the monkey twice, increase the buff to 4x,
    • Feed the monkey three times, the buff increases to 8x - additional feedings past this will not increase the multiplier any further, it will remain capped at 8x
    • If you merely activate the monkey, but do not feed him, the buff will not increase. You must feed the Zombie Monkey for the buff to increase.
  • The permanent Base x2 buff only applies to candy wins.
    • The graphic for the buff itself will not change, by placing your cursor over the buff icon on the right side of the breaking screen, you can see your buff has leveled up to.
    • All normal buffs are available.
  • The base multiplier will reset every day at Midnight PDT.

Let's break down the Zombie Monkey's special event stage:

From the Zombie Monkey's Special Event Screen, you can:
  • Track how much time is left until the event ends,
  • Visually watch the mountains of sugary goodness grow with each bag filled!
  • See your progress towards your current candy bag,
  • See the current cost of the supplies which you are working towards,
  • Easily track your progress towards bags filled, Prizes collected (Click the Prize button to see which ones you've earned/are missing), Progression Ribbons and the Hallowe'en Trophy!

Can be displayed in a Trophy Room.

Ribbon and Trophy (if earned) are awarded after the event finishes on November 5, 2014. The highest ribbon earned will be awarded.

Stretch Goal:

Pumpkins! After you have earned the Hallowe'en Trophy, you can refill the largest candy Bag 3 additional times and one of these pumpkins each time. (You can continue to refill the largest bag past the three pumpkins, but you can only earn 3 pumpkins!) Can be displayed in a Trophy Room.
