Since the launch, we have received so many kind feedback from players suggesting ways to further improve the experience of Hoa, and while we could not implement all of them, we tried to include the ones that we believe will make the most impact in this first update of Hoa. Let's look through it
1. Level Selection (PC, macOS, Switch)
Players can now jump to any level they want with ease. Anybody who got stuck can now easily unstuck themselves with this. This feature will soon come to PlayStation and XBox too. Accessible from Main Menu.
2. Window Mode (PC, macOS)
This feature is for PC and Mac only. Players can now choose to play the game in a window instead of fullscreen. This setting can be found in the Options pop-up from either the Main Menu or Pause Menu.
3. Bug Fix - Factory, Red Level Room (PC, macOS, Switch)
Players will no longer get kicked into oblivion by the robot in the room with the red level. For those who got stuck here, you can get out by going to Level Selection, and choose to restart the Factory level.
4. Bug Fix - Factory, Oven Room (PC, macOS, Switch)
Previously there was a bug in which if players input more coals into the oven after the fire was lit and before they blow the fire 4 times, they won't be able to activate the robot's chains. We fixed this, and now the robot's chains can be activated in any scenarios. For those who got stuck here, you can get out by going to Level Selection, and choose to restart the Factory level.
5. Bug Fix - Underground, Entrance to Ladybug Level
(PC, macOS, Switch)
Players used to be able to use only Double Jump to get to the right end area of the cave (refer to the image below), while it should require Smash skill too. Those who managed to get there without Smash skill will get stuck and cannot go back to learn it. We fixed this, and now players will need to learn Smash skill to be able to reach there. For those who got stuck here, you can get out by going to Level Selection, and choose to restart the Underground level.
Those are the main features that has been updated in this patch. We hope they will help improve your gaming experience. Have fun! ^^
All the best,
