New Objectives & Weekend Buff 

We have a special surprise for you this week in the form of four brand new permanent objectives in the Amusement Park of Doom campaign. Plus, we have our weekly weekend buff.

The first of the four new objectives is Log Ride. Players can start the objective after completing You Must be THIS Tall and already have 30,000 idols banked. Every 10 seconds one of your Crusaders gets drenched by water, decreasing their DPS to 0 and disabling their formation abilities for 15 seconds. Players must reach area 650 to beat the objective.

Log Ride


Mauled By Mascots sees the intrepid Crusaders attacked by well-known, beloved characters, including Marty Mouse and Daryl Duck. It wouldn't be right to kill them so you must just fend off the invulnerable mascots until you can advance to the next area all the way to area 750.

Mauled By Mascots


Couples Day requires you to always have an equal number of male and female Crusaders on the field. However, we do give you some leeway to add one male or female Crusader as you unlock them (otherwise you couldn't add any Crusaders). To complete the objective, you must beat area 800.

Couples Day


The final new objective is It's Over Nine... Hundred? where you have to (you guessed it!) beat area 900.

It's Over Nine... Hundred?


We're also launching the new weekend buff, Amusing Objectives of Doom. The Bushwhacker, Veronica, the Android Archer, Gold Panda, Fire Phoenix, and Exterminator all get a boost for the weekend until 12 pm PDT on Monday, May 15th.

October Objectives! 

We don't need roads where we're going! Mostly because to enjoy this week's update you just need a computer or mobile phone. Nike Mag shoes are optional.

This week we launch four new challenging objectives for the Idols Through Time campaign.




New Objective: Echoes

In the objective Echoes you'll encounter randomly spawned malevolent versions of your Crusaders that can't be killed for 30 seconds but will still deal damage to you. If they're at the forefront of the enemy's attack, they'll soak up all your DPS until they disappear. You're going to want to clear all 600 areas as soon as possible to beat them.

New Objective: Hamstrung

The objective Hamstrung will only allow you to use Crusaders that don't have a DPS tag all the way to area 600. Time to find a new main dps'er!

New Objective: The Lost World

The Lost World objective sees you transported back to the Jurassic period and attacked by a cornucopia of dinosaurs. These beasts include ones that are invisible, tanky, super-fast, and others that will do ranged damage to your formation.

The final new objective is Atrophy where all Crusaders will take 1% damage per second until you can clear the area. Then you start all over again until you can beat area 700.

Plus, this weekend we're buffing some October-loving Crusaders from today until Monday, October 17 at Noon PDT.

  • The Washed Up Hermit - Base DPS + 400%
  • The Princess - DPS All + 100%
  • Natalie Dragon - Gold Find + 100%
  • Nate Dragon - Double Dragon + 200%
  • Mister the Monkey - Follow the Leader + 200%

Also, check out the limited-time Octoberfun Jeweled Chests that contain equipment for the five Crusaders above! (Please note: The chest will only contain gear for Mister the Monkey if you've unlocked him.)

Good luck Crusaders, you'll need it!

New Objectives & Weekend Buff! 

Summer is a lazy time of year where you get to slow down, reconnect with old friends and chill out. It's in that spirit that we're getting you to reconnect with your old friends in Crusaders. Namely some campaigns you'd love to revisit.

This week we're introducing four new objectives. There are two new additions to Mischief at Mugwarts and two new additions in Ready Player Two, most of which are on the harder side to encourage you just to kick-back and enjoy the long days playing Crusaders.

New Objective: Invisibility Cloak. Monsters are invisible!


In Invisibility Cloak monsters are invisible and won't take passive DPS until they're revealed: either when they attack your formation, or when they're clicked directly.

In the objective Fantastic Beasts, a new bumbling wizard takes up a slot in your formation and wreaks havoc with his inept summoning. Random monsters with different abilities assail the Crusaders throughout their entire trek to area 650.

New Objective: Fantastic Beasts. Invulneracorn can't be killed.


Boy and girl polkaman trainers take up slots in the objective Polkamans Go! Each area has a random polkaman creature that has to be caught before the Crusaders can continue. The polkaman can only be collected by actively clicking so you'll need to keep an eye out for these tricky creatures.

New Objective: Polkaman can only be collected by actively clicking.


The final new objective, Acme Dark Souls is the most devious and arcane of all the new challenges. The greatest magic conjurers have come together wielding their mastery of the dark arts to create the ultimate in evil sorcery, a giant anvil. Every 10 seconds an anvil will drop from the sky and kill a random Crusader.

To celebrate the new objectives we're going to give five lucky Crusaders mellow midsummer buffs to complement their formation abilities and DPS until Monday, August 29 at 12 pm PDT.

Hermit, Princess, Phoenix, Nate and Alan all get a limited time buff applied automatically this weekend. The buffs are:

  • Hermit - Base DPS +400%
  • Princess - DPS All + 100%
  • Phoenix - Heart of the Phoenix +200%
  • Nate - Gold Find +100%
  • Alan - Blinding Light +200%
Weekend Buff Crusaders.

New Event! Alien Invasion Day 

We didn't see it coming. The reduction in budgets for NASA and space exploration meant that we took our eyes off the cosmos. The result was the aliens were able to sneak into orbit and launch a stealth attack on Earth!

"We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Alien Invasion Day!"


New Crusader! Billy Smithsonian



Your first objective for the brand new Alien Invasion Day event is safely escorting Billy Smithsonian, the leader of the free world to safety. At area 100 a secure bunker awaits the president and his aides.

One plucky, smart-talking Navy pilot has managed to outmanoeuvre the extraterrestrial invaders. His wise-cracking aerial acrobatics enabled him to take down and capture an alien called Kizlyblyp (humans are unable to pronounce his real name without spontaneously haemorrhaging their brain. It's a thing.)

New Crusader! Kizlyblyp



The Crusaders must deliver her to the lab for a plethora of invasive probes as revenge for all the mutilated cows in the American Midwest. Unfortunately, on their way to Area 100, she'll debuff all the Crusaders' DPS by 50%. Once fully probed, Kizlyblyp will be brainwashed and join the Crusaders' fight back.

"It's the White House, for crying out loud. You can't just go up and ring the doorbell."

The remaining three objectives include Protect the Monuments where the Statue of Liberty, CN Tower and Eiffel Tower all take up slots in your formation. Your job is to stop the senseless destruction of these poor defenceless structures in every SciFi movie ever.

New Objective! Save the Monuments



Superior alien technology makes the Crusaders' mission that much harder in the Shields Up objective. An alien tank will randomly appear using its alien shield to protect the other monsters from attack by absorbing all DPS for a short period.

Finally, the Banelings objective sees the invading aliens resort to despicable tactics. Now special banelings will rush your Crusaders and explode on making contact, wiping an entire column. You'll have to keep them at bay to reach area 250.

The Alien Invasion Day event will run until July 12th at Noon PDT.

New Event! Trek Through the Hidden Temple 

Montana James dusted off his fedora before fixing back on his head. The frantic slide under the closing warehouse door almost claimed his hat for the umpteenth time. He was still clutching the tattered map of the rainforest temple as he picked himself up and ran for the waiting boat plane that would take him to deepest, darkest Peru...

"Throw me the idol; I’ll throw you the whip!"

The latest event takes our Crusaders on an adventure in the finest traditions of archeologists who also happen to be great at adventures. Yesteryear chic from the 1930s, an evil regime of bad guys and a race to recover ancient treasure in a temple in a jungle await you.

New Crusader! Recruit Montana James



The Trek Through the Hidden Temple event introduces our new square-jawed Crusader, Montana James, one of two new heroes to add to your roster. He requires rescuing himself after getting mixed up with a group of jackbooted soldiers.

For the first objective, the Crusaders will need to escort Montana to area 100 all the while being chased by soldiers who debuff all DPS and abilities for Crusaders in ever-shifting slots.

“Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?”

The second objective sees the Crusaders pitted against a scaly new antagonist called King Draco. Draco intermittently summons his snake minions to attack a random Crusader, again debuffing all DPS and abilities for 30 seconds.

New Crusader! Recruit King Draco



The remaining objectives include Daddy Says So, where the Crusaders are saddled with the daughter of the Crusader's benefactor (the guy paying for the expedition). Unfortunately, you're also weighed down with her luggage taking up valuable slots all the way to area 150.

New Objective! Daddy Says So



Watch Out For Booby Traps will see a random slot fall foul of the classic pit-and-spikes trap. Every 10 areas different slots will lose all the DPS and formation abilities making reaching area 200 a challenge.

The final new objective is Mali Ka. Evil spirits (or maybe some dodgy local food) is turning the Crusaders against each other. Until you reach area 250, you'll be attacked by your own friends! Crusaders not in your formation will launch themselves at the other Crusaders intent on stopping them from finishing the objective.

Good luck, Crusaders, and before you undertake this epic adventure, take inspiration from the immortal words of Montana himself: "Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory."

The Hidden Temple event will run until June 21st at Noon PDT.

New Objectives! 

We like to think of Crusaders as the gift that keeps on giving and today we give you another update. We've added two new objectives for the Mischief at Mugwarts campaign and two new objectives to the Ready Player Two campaign.

In Accio Monsters, the Crusaders accidentally cast an Accio charm, and now monsters move 10x faster than normal! You're going to have to create your most effective tank line to block the onslaught of monsters all the way to area 450.

Monsters are 10x faster in the Accio Monsters Objective


If you thought that was rough, it's going to get rougher than a sandpaper-covered loofah in The Final Battle objective. Deadly magic is flying everywhere, and death curses will randomly spawn and one-shot your front-most Crusaders until they wipe your formation. Good luck reaching area 500.

Death magic one-shots your Crusaders in the The Final Battle objective


Making games isn't as easy as you think. Sometimes bugs creep in. In Glitch Out, the Crusaders will experience a whole host of random glitches that will both help and hinder your progress to area 450. Some will temporarily boost your DPS by +400% while other gremlins in the code will deactivate all your formation abilities. It's going to be a digital roller coaster.

Glitches randomly affect Crusaders on this journey to area 450


The final new objective, Video Game of Thrones only allows you to pick Royal Crusaders for your formation to reach 450. That means you'll be limited to their Royal Highnesses Princess, Sal, Brogon, Thalia, Reginald, Siri and Leerion.

Only Royal Crusaders are available in the Video Game of Thrones objective


To celebrate the new objectives and the beginning of the summer we're going to give five lucky Crusaders white-hot buffs to complement their formation abilities and DPS until Monday June 6 at 12pm PDT.

  • Sasha: +200% Bulwark Ability
  • Natalie Dragon: +400% Base DPS
  • Khouri: +200% Koffee Potion ability
  • Merci: +100% Gold buff
  • Queen Siri: +100% Queen's Decree ability
We can't wait to hear what you think of the new additions to the game!

Easter Event: Nate's Candy Conundrum 

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin' down the bunny trail, when *blam!* Nate's reset malfunctions. Now the Crusaders are transported to a parallel universe where they are beset by demon Easter candy. It happened, alright?

Nate's Candy Conundrum Easter event introduces two brand new Crusaders who again are obtainable when you complete the first two objectives.

Alan the Archangel is kind of a big deal in certain circles. As a top level executive in his organization, he brings the big guns when it comes to his powers. Once added to your roster, you can power him up and at level 75 he'll use some of his divine power to potentially resurrect fallen Crusaders with full health while simultaneously doing 25% damage to all enemies and forcing them back.

New Crusader: Alan the Archangel



If you've ever wondered how the Easter Bunny manages to distribute all those eggs, now you know: Automation. RoboRabbit is the mechanical workhorse of the holiday season. Rated at an impressive 1,000 candy eggs per second, he's able to cover the globe with treats for kids in every garden in the world.

New Crusader: RoboRabbit



His particular skills are as unique as he is. At level 50, RoboRabbit will store up part of your DPS and then disburse it as bonus click damage when you put your clicking to the test. At level 100, he'll boost your DPS for a whopping 15 minutes, from just making one little click! Get up to 25% bonus DPS without any gear from 25 clicks, or up to 63% DPS with his Golden Epic! Just don't let him die!

There are three other objectives for the event. You need to transport all your candy haul and the 'Candy Train' is the perfect solution. However, the train takes up four slots in your formation as you battle your way to area 150.

New Objective: Candy Train



'Hurry! Hurry!' features the real Easter Bunny, who requires an escort to area 200. However, given that he's largely unemployed because of the RoboRabbit, he's somewhat impatient and will decrease your DPS by 1% for each monster killed in an area. The longer you're in the area, the more anxious he becomes up to a max debuff of 99%!

The final new objective is 'Easter Egg Hunt'. A giant egg takes over a slot in your formation and then every 25 areas another egg will appear to commandeer a slot until nearly all the slots are occupied. It'll make reaching area 250 more than a little challenging to complete.

New Valentine's Event! Merci's Mix-Up 

It's Valentines Day for Merci, but being a Mad Wizard can be a lonely life. Merci's decided to mend his loneliness in the only way he knows how: by mixing up a fix-all love potion! Unfortunately, while preparing his concoction he swiped left instead of right. The resulting concatenation of amorous ardour and wayward magic opened a portal to Super Love Land and beyond.

Just like your real life preparation for Valentine's Day, your mission is to complete five new objectives by using the new Heart formation and slaying legions of monsters. We're pretty sure that's how it works, right?

Rocky the Rockstar



Fittingly for the ultimate celebration of romance, we have two new Crusaders for you to entice and add to your roster. Rocky, the Rockstar, is a swirling ball of testosterone, whose raw sexual power is tempered only by his genuine charm. The Juliet to this Romeo is the second new Crusader, Sally the Succubus, the winsome demon who leaves an army of admirers in her wake.

Rocky's talents include boosting his DPS by having female Crusaders around him, starting at 25% and increasing up to a deafening 250% per lady with his normal Epic equipment, and even further to 350% with his Golden Epic.

Sally includes the ability increase her own DPS up to a maximum of +300%. However, beware of putting female Crusaders next to her as it'll reduce her DPS by 25% per fellow lady. However, her other skill boosts all female Crusaders' DPS by 20%. Can you find the perfect spot for her in your formation?

Sally, the Succubus



We also have three additional objectives. Broken Hearted requires 500 idols to play and sees the love-lorn Crusaders heart formation split in two with the three middle slots taken up by a crack.

Backstage Pass requires 1,000 idols and only allows you to choose Rocky and female Crusaders. Furthermore, two slots are taken up with Rocky's band equipment.

The final event objective, Dangerous Allure only allows your to choose Sally the Succubus and male Crusaders and requires 1,500 idols to play. In a unique twist, the slots in the formation will steadily be taken over by zombies the further you progress!

New Objective: Backstage Pass



Continuing our tradition of recognizing some of our more famous fans, this event we're honoring regular streamer, Tedessence. Ted has been with us almost since launch and has been producing a constant stream of Let's Play videos on Twitch which you can check out here.



Tedessence


You'll be able to find his avatar as a boss monster in the Valentine's Day event. Pass on our love for him by smiting him down in Crusaders' fashion.

Merci's Mix-Up event will run until February 23rd to give you plenty of time to woo those objectives into submission.
