NEOWIZ and developer Team Suneat have released Zett, a new playable character for the 2D roguelite platformer Blade Assault. Zett enters in the Patch v1.2 update and brings the “DOOM” mechanical gauntlet with him.
With a cybernetic arm and the “DOOM” gauntlet, Zett is bringing a powerful punch to Blade Assault. The name alone is telling on how powerful of beatdown Zett will dole out. As his HP drops, Zett’s walloping gets faster. In extreme moments, Zett can activate a shield, helping him get to safety.
Patch v1.2 also called the Jack and Jean update brings a host of additions and changes. Two new NPCs, Jack and Jane, have been added. These two will randomly appear in Hotel Halona offering players new gear choices or a buff.
The Drone System has been updated. Players can visit Hailey to change the type of drone they wish to use. Drones come in Red, Energy, Medic Box, and Machine Gun types. Other changes include the ability to summon Randolph before a boss stage to buy a potion if the friendship level is right. Higher the friendship level the more potions that are available and the higher the quality. Friendship level for Randolph can be increased from Armstrong at the jazz bar.
A more complete list of changes, additions, and bug fixes in Patch v1.2 can be found here.
