The new update is here!

Kick overhaul!

Kicks have been made a lot more straightforward to use.
Simply right click to kick in whatever direction you're moving to unleash a kick.

Tip: Try it while the jetpack is engaged! :D

New Upgrade: Aim Time

The bow upgrade tree has a powerful new ability. Aim Time lets you slow down time to a crawl while aiming. A useful counter for things that are fast!

New Endless Levels: Spikes and Jump Pads!

The amount of unique level environments doubled in this update, to a total of 22!
We also introduced spike pads and jump pads to make the levels more interesting.

Matt Olick joins us this update as a contract artist!
The beautiful new environment assets are all his doing.

Endless Difficulty Adjustments

Endless Mode is supposed to be difficult, but some levels were just too hard.

This update we removed over 40 levels that were either boring or ridiculously difficult (2.5 deaths/victory). Bronze Difficulty was also made a lot easier, making the levels very quick and satisfying.

The Mark 2 Jetpack Bots still appear in Titanium, but not 5 of them with 10 other enemies present. :)

Other Changes

  • Performance Increased: Cutting things is now a lot more performant, which also improves the accuracy of cuts!
  • Rotate Arrows: Using the scroll wheel you can now rotate arrows to any angle!
  • Shoot People on the Ground: Arrow deflection no longer works when you're knocked over!
  • Jump while jetpacking: Now possible! A small but useful improvement.

The Road Ahead

So, what happens now?

Here is a rough forecast for the next few updates:

  • Dec 16: Twitch Mode! This experimental crowd interaction mode is coming soon in a smaller update.
  • January: Story Mode Returns! We finally return to story mode with some fresh new levels and drama. This is likely to coincide with a Steam Greenlight campaign.
  • ???: Sandbox Mode? Things get a little more uncertain out here, but one of the big new features in the pipe is Sandbox Mode, letting people design and share their own levels.

I hope you enjoy this update!
Let us know what you think in the forums! :)

how do I download the update

(+2)

Look for the email you got when you purchased it. It has a link to a page where you can download it.

If you use the itch.io app it becomes even easier to get new updates!

(+3)

Thanks,in endless mode can you make so you can create your own character or player

(+2)

i don't know how to get it on either account or itch.io

(+2)

https://itch.io/t/49527/how-to-update-the-game

(+1)

I had another idea we should start with,our fists nit a sword and you can upgrade your punch power or get the sword or bow

(+1)

i lost the email where is said that i purchesd the game so i dont know what to do to get the update any thoughts?

(+1)

Try this: https://itch.io/docs/buying/already-bought

(+1)

I already have the game downloaded on my desktop how do I download it on itch.io app without buying it again?

(+1)

This link is your friend: https://itch.io/docs/buying/already-bought

(+3)

I have some ideas you guys should add kick power it makes the kicked stronger and attack speed with the sword soon you can hit faster.I was thinking of something like a boss on story mode hope this was helpful BTW I love this game.

(+2)

Kick power was an update before! I removed it since it wasn't actually that helpful.

A lot of the time you want to kick someone over in order to slice them on the ground. Having them fly far away from you makes this harder!

(+3)

ohh what I ment was make the kick still push them back far enough to slice them up and stuff but make the kick hurt them and possibly kill them if it's strong enough

(+2)

scroll down to my post https://itch.io/t/49405/new-enemy-ideas#post-76303

(+2)

yeeeeaaaaaah, kick upgrades would be cool. Have to think about what they are. :)

(+2)

make the kick have 3 upgrades one is where the kick gets a bit strong where it can hurt them second upgrade is where your attack speed gets faster with the kick third is were it can kick off a arm or leg hope this was helpful

(+1)

I found A bug where if i die and move onto the next human when i press spacebar it changes human

(i press space and it restarts)

(+1)

thats not a bug it does that so you can change your persons color and stuff

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

no it is actually a bug: https://itch.io/t/49509/endless-mode-space-next-human

(+1)

hey that 3rd gif

it showed that the player has more than 5 lives

(+1)

An astute observation. ;)
It's from Jonathan doing some testing, so he's cheating!

(+1)

Can I do some testing? pretty please

(+1)

Π°Π°Π°

(+4)

i love this game it is the best

(+1)

hey do we have to pay again to get the updates to download or no????

(+1)

Nope, check your email for the purchase confirmation. It has a link to the page where you can download it. Or use the itch.io app to never worry about that again.

(+1)

were is it on the itch.io app????

(+1)

Check this out: https://itch.io/t/49527/how-to-update-the-game

(+1)

um i'm using the itch app and below it states "[Download Symbol] Downloading update..."

And it's been like this for like 20minz. How can I update this correctly?

(+1)

Try restarting the app!

(+1)

i dont know were the update thing is for clone drone in the danger zone for the itch.io app.

(+1)

https://itch.io/t/49527/how-to-update-the-game

(+1)

i have it from mega clone drone so how do you get new update?

(+1)

What's mega clone drone?

(+1)

I think he means he got it from MEGA i.e. a source other than itch.

(+1)

how do you update

(+1)

https://itch.io/t/49527/how-to-update-the-game

(+1)

Where are the instructions on how to play???

(+1)

i got that app after i purchased the game and its telling me to purchase it again to get the email. Also i never got an email from when i bought the game.

(+1)

sorry, replied in other topic you posted in. Send me an email at erik (at) doborog.com and we'll sort it out!

(+2)

Guys seriously can you read he/she has answered the same question like ten times now xD just scroll up.

(+1)

he didn't answer mine

(+2)

To be fair I answered the same thing after they all asked the question. :)

(+1)

I really like the app you guys made it's really smooth so thanks. :)

(+1)

I have the game but the site and the app say i need to buy it again

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

Sounds like you didn't link it to your itch.io account! Find your original purchase email with the link, and make sure to claim it to your account.


It should say something about claiming it on this yellow bar if you're logged in.

(+1)

I couldn't find it do you think you could send me another copy of the game please.

(Edited 1 time) (+2)

Send me an email and we can look into it! Erik (at) Doborog.com

(+1)

Wooh! There's been a ton of great youtube videos today!

FerociousToast has a really neat summary at the start of what the new things look like! Check it out:

(+2)

WOOOOOO!

(I may or may not me excited right now)

(+2)

Can't wait for Jan Story mode update.

4th Jan is my birthday so that would kind of be like a present for me *w*

Thanks Senpai :3

(+1)

i still cant update the game

(+1)

Have you read https://itch.io/t/49527/how-to-update-the-game ?

If you have and it's not working email me at erik (at) doborog.com and I'll help you.

(+2)

This is a NOICE update. Good job!

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

I got from mega downloader clone drone in the danger zone and it does not let me get it?

(+1)

wait, mega as in the youtube video (already taken down) where there's a mega download link to the game in the description? Yeah, first of all, that wasn't a legit copy. It's pirated. You can't update it. Buy the goddamn game and support the developer, or don't play it at all

(+1)

yo pyro calm down he dident know

(+1)

And? Im A pirate too. But I always buy games I enjoy, especially indie games

(+1)

It sais I don't have the game on itch and I do and that means I cant update it so how do I register it to itch???

(+1)

Look for the email you got. The link will let you link it. If you don't find the email contact me at erik (aaat) doborog.com

(+1)

wait... did the game update or not? because my itch.io says it is up to date but it still says 0.3.1

(+1)

Not yet! Will make it live this evening.

(+1)

:D

(+2)

Now that I think about it, how am I supposed to use my bow for the vertical arrows now, if right click is kick?

(+2)

You can rotate the scroll wheel, which rotates the arrow to any angle.

I'm not 100% happy with the current implementation, since instantly getting them to be vertical was pretty nice. Will probably revisit it in a future update.

(+1)

since the game doesn't have any use of the crouch button (albeit it could be useful to dodge sword swipes and arrows), you could set control as kick instead

what button is crouch?

(+1)

on the update guide the check for update button is not there on my itch.io app

(+1)

sry nevermind

(+1)

hey Dogorog Games. I bought the game without making a itch.io account and I cant seem to find the upadate link in my emails. could you suggest any ways to fix this or do I have to buy it again :(

(+1)

Email me at Erik (aaaatt) doborog.com and I will investigate

(+1)

Espern que sigan actualizando a si de rapido que buen juego si seΓ±or :)

(+1)

muchos gracias amigo! :D

(+1)

When I lunch the game its says I could update it when I go on the site I have to buy it

(+1)

https://itch.io/t/49527/how-to-update-the-game

(+1)

some problem

(+1)

Same answer. :)

(+2)

really? it only does that when I breakfast the game xD

ha.

ha.

ha.

(slow clap)

(+1)

As much as I appreciate the work and love being put into the game, I'm not enjoying it as much as I used to, and that's because of some way overpowered enemies. I'm talking about, of course, the jetpack bots.

There are various levels of fun mixed with challenge. In order: casual fun, challenging fun, headache fun, migraine fun (also known as dark souls). The "fun" portion subsequently decreases. The game is currently somewhere between headache and migraine, but only on levels with the jetpack bots. The aim time upgrade does not help, owing to the fact that it still takes energy to use (why couldn't it be like skyrim?), and it drains fast. The level with only 4 Mk I jetpack bots and I wanted to smash a hole in my monitor. Some people might enjoy getting angry, but me, and I'm sure many others, think the jetpack bots are way too overpowered.

I can understand not wanting to remove them, but could you atleast add an option to disable jetpack bots in the settings? This has become way too much to actually enjoy anymore.

*braces for hate*

(+1)

I see where you're coming from!

I think where I want them to be is to be the enemy players love to hate, but they might be too close to something people just hate still. They probably need even more tuning down!

One thing I've found very effective at countering them is a simple forward kick as they approach. If you get them on the ground they don't get up very quickly.

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

won't they just slice through you if your timing is off?

(+1)

why not make it so that they can only go in a straight line while jet packing? Or make the turning slower

(+1)

or simple not make more then 3 at a time mk1 or mk2
like that one lvl with 5 mk1 just comes out of nowhere (was not ready for that still beat it tho)

(+1)

trying to get update and sadly i cant find the email in my gmail account. can you just tell me the name of the email so i can look it up and download the update =(

Thanks

(+1)

Your purchase of 'Clone Drone in the Danger Zone'
from itch.io <postmaster@itch.io>

thats what mine is saying

(+1)

plz add a kick update where if you get kick then get the upgrade when you kick then it might kill/chop off a limb

(+2)

People seem to want to kick robots to death! I'll think about it! :)

(+1)

the humans like murrdering everthing

(+1)

yeah we do

(+2)

even there own clones

(+1)

true

XD

(+1)

oh yeah, I have a YouTube channel, if you want to see it then search up mineboss01 on YouTube, some of my old videos are only 360p sadly, I haven't made any videos on clone drone in the danger zone yet because my demo version of the recording software broke, I probably won't be able to make any videos till after Christmas.

If you want to gmail me here's my gmail: realmineboss01@gmail.com

(+1)

plz message me if you make any more games or update clone drone in the danger zone or if you want me to test out an update for feedbac

(+1)

a bug I found is that if I die then press space it starts a new human for example: I kill a robot and press space to jump, it restarts as in says Joe citizen and i start agai

(+1)

i had that happen to but someone already found this bug if you scroll up

(+1)

totally abusing this bug to always get a black swordsman


They just look too cool

(+2)

I have fallen in love with the new kick sound. I giggle every time I kick a robot now. Does that mean something is wrong with me?

(+1)

Yes. The correct response is not to giggle but to shout HIYYYAAAAAHHH!!! in a high pitched voice.

(+1)

(robotic voice) but your human voice will hurt ha ha ha

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

but doborog, how do I do that without getting a voice crack? xD

(+1)

(robotic voice) you be a robot like me

(+1)

so I can have better robot voice experiences xDl

(+1)

(robotic voice)yes

(Edited 4 times) (+2)

sandbox mode sounds cool as i was thinking that to it looks and feels like the type of game where player build maps really can help the fun

i just really want a map with no traps and 30 or so mk1 swords to have fun with

but a side note windows mode plz dont like fullscreen cant check other stuff same time

the kick can be hard to use as u move as u do it most times i end up missing as he moves past the enemy then kicks left right and back front kicks are easier to do as yeah u can se whats there long befor u try hit it


there has been some miss used lines from the duo

at silver there is a lvl where spider-tron-5000 is not there yet they say it is

and also silver they say no traps no obstacles just pure combat yet the map had pillers all over and blades at the walls

diamond lvl they say jetpack bots are back yet it was spider-tron-6000 and some mk1 swords and archers

(+1)

nuovo aggornamento

(+1)

This is an awesome game that will 100% be a succes. Keep staying awesome!
I really like the new update, too!
Oh, and I think it would be really helpful if you could just do three little things:
1) Remove the glitch where you can go to Main Menu when playing endless mode and being fixed completely (for ex. you lose a leg in endless mode, you go to main menu, you go to endless mode again)
2) Therefor adding a fix option that costs 1 point and cn be used when you lose a part of your body without wasting your clone
and
3) Fixing that glitch where, if you press the space bar when you are built to start the endless mode, it litteraly restarts and gives you a new human (so just go to endless mode, press space and see what happens. maybe it is just for me but I dont know)

(+1)

Thanks! I plan on fixing all of those.

Nr 1 with next update and 2-3 in some future update. :)

(+1)

You COULD make number 3 a feature, so you sorta get to change your robots color and name. Just sayin'

(+1)

Oh man... I really thought the spin was going to be added, oh well :)

(+1)

what spin

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

jacksepticeye made a new video on clone drone

(+1)

Ummmm, you said there would be a new update today. Where's it at?

(+1)

Fixing the last things! :)

You can see a preview of it here if you're quick: https://www.twitch.tv/gateway2drillbit

(Edited 1 time) (+2)

0.4.0 is live!!!!! But I'm too tired to write a blog post about it tonight. Look forward to all the info tomorrow. :)

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

yeah I was wondering what it is can you at least tell your followers ( but mostly targeted to me ) just one detail of this update please.

:.(

(+1)

Don't be sad! The blog post is up now! https://itch.io/t/52479/update-040-twitch-mode

(+1)

oh twitch mode umm

fun

i thought you are going to add player custom mode where you pick

-name

-colour

(Edited 1 time)

that is not a bad idea, but we are gonna need to get more enemy's and sandbox for it to fit in perfectly

*insert Analysis-bot voice* ha. silly humans. they only ever feel sadness and dissapointment. no qilsnib

(Commentatron) Analysis-Bot, your voice synthesizer's broken, it's qilsnod, not qilsnib, also, that EnderWitherX guy FINALLY updated his page, what a wait, I mean, I'm not interested at all, because I'm a robot, actually, he has some good robot ideas... I mean, I'd not get ideas from a silly human, obviously

(Analysis-Bot) Commentatron, are you trying to tell me something?

(Analysis-Bot) ur wright, me voice synthicisor iz broken. i'll ged id fiksed

(Commentatron) Ummmm... maybe the humans have good ideas? HEY, PUT DOWN THAT ENERGY SWORD, I PUNCHSTARTED THAT!

(Edited 1 time)

i have a feeling your gonna make us get 3 humans out of the place in story mode before we can get to new stuff

and there will be a giant robot boss waiting outside.

just something i thought of

Edit: don't add lots of spider-trons 5000 or 6000 to the campaign. its already hard with mark 3 bots and lots of mark 2's.

i was also thinking about having an arrow speed upgrade to help players hit more. i usually get blocked or have my arrows get jumped over frequently.

I haven't got the new update. tell me how i get it
