Hello ducklings,

The number for this patch have thus skipped a number all the way up to 0.9.4. 🙂 During this patch our focus was mainly targeted towards adding some well-needed gameplay changes. We have now added the long-wanted feature of Sudden Death, refined how Shields and Bat-hits works… oh and… we upgraded all of the Mega Bombs to level 3 by default!
