New Creatures[edit | edit source]

Six new creatures were introduced in this update, three neutral and three hostile.

  • Maggot - harmless critters that just hang around in the caves. So squishy.
  • Loot Bug - big fat grub full of tasty resources. Once you Pop, as they say...
  • Spitballer - a towering, sentient plant that shoots explosive spore pods at intruders.
  • Cave Vine - inquisitive polyps hanging from the ceilings.
  • Deeptora Swarm - swarms of stinging, angry insects. Destroy their hive to get rid of them.
  • The Dreadnought - the biggest and meanest Glyphid to date. You see the Dreadnaught coming at you, you better be prepared for a tough fight!
