Haunted Mansion Photo Contest in BW2 2015 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.


Hi Whackers!

The Haunted Mansion Photo Contest is now live!

Get your scare on and decorate up your Haunted Mansion! It's super easy! Just whack bushes for Pumpkins and buy decorations to make your mansion look super gruesome! Once you've achieved at least 250 Scariness, you can enter your house in the contest!

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 6th, 2015, - Noon PST*, 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.

Notes about the voting system:
  • Visiting the contest page simply loads the contest/voting page over top of the game! 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? You can say "Next Please," and two new images will be loaded up for you!
Voting is open until *Monday, November 9th, 2015 @ Noon PST*

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 Addicting Games, Armor Games, Big Fish Games, Games.com, 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 9th in the in-game news and on the Bush Blog!

Good luck everyone!

New Halloween Event! 

Halloween comes early this year with our second limited time event. If you've ever wondered why Emo Werewolf is so emo, you'll have the chance to learn the legend first-hand.

You'll discover the shaggy Crusader's tortured past that includes lost love and a feud with a dead rival. And it's all set against the backdrop of teenage angst, at a high school.

Starting today and running until November 4th, the Halloween event campaign features four new objectives and two brand new Crusaders. Once you've convinced them to join your party by completing their respective objectives, you'll be able to include them in your formation.

"liek dis if u cry evry tim"



To enter the event, you must collect candies dropped by monsters when you destroy them in any objective. The first of the Halloween objectives costs 100 candies as the price of entry. Once you've saved up some candy, use Nate Dragon's "Reset the World" ability to view the event objectives.

Wendy the Witch is the first new Crusader you'll unlock. She draws power from her enemies and deals more damage the more monsters there are on the screen. Once she's on your side, she can be swapped with Prince Sal, the Merman. The second new Crusader is Jack O'Lantern, a tank that pairs well with Jason, Master of Shadows to bust down boss levels and tank up a storm. Each monster attacking him, trying to knock out his bonus health, will add a 10% DPS boost to your whole formation! He can be swapped in for Natalie Dragon.

"My enemies think to overwhelm me; they only make me more powerful"



However, it's not going to be that easy! When attempting to rescue the witch, she'll debuff the DPS of every Crusader adjacent to her for every extra monster on screen. Jack O'Lantern will make the two columns in front of him take more damage until you've recruited him to your side.

"Not so gooey after all"



One additional change we've made is to make those surplus Event Tickets more useful. If you manage to stockpile an extra 15,000 candies you can trade them for a Jeweled Halloween Chest! As a reminder, these special chests contain the exclusive gear for the two new Crusaders once you have added them to your roster.

However, take note: You can only trade surplus candies for Halloween Event Chests while the event is running (but you can continue to buy the Jeweled Halloween Chests two days after the Halloween event has finished).

Break out the holy water and stakes, dig out the pumpkin carver and silver bullets, Crusaders. You'll need to this Halloween.

The event will run until Wednesday November 4th at Noon PDT.

Trick or Treat with Egg Breaker Adventures 


Braaaains! Braaaains! Caaaaandy!

The Zombie monkey is back for some Hallowe'en mischief on the Egg Breaker Adventure Islands! Help him collect his food of choice, Candy!

General Event details:

- Find Hallowe'en Candy in eggs in the Zombie Monkey's special stages to fill Candy bags 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 daily permanent multiplier buff is back! Here's the low-down on how the buff works:
  • The 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 Pacific Time.
