In a post, the dev team at Massive Monster revealed they have been working on introducing more depth to the game. For this upcoming major content update, the main focus is on combat and dungeon gameplay mainly due to player feedback.

The Heavy Attack

What are these new moves? The update introduces the heavy attack which players can perform by pressing and holding the attack button. This new sword move can knock back a lot of enemies and is a good option when being swarmed.

Each weapon type is going to have its own heavy attack. The axe boomerang throw offers players ranged choices where they can charge the axe and then throw it in a straight line before it returns to where the players are while slicing enemies on both ways. The heavy attack of the dagger, meanwhile, has multiple daggers drop in a line with each one knocking back enemies farther away.

Overall, the addition of a new attack for each weapon gives players more options for every encounter.
