Today I reinstalled ABT to clean up the memory (, which is something I do from time to time).
To my surprise version 1.34.2 (android) was installed instead of 1.33.11
And to my even greater surprise it couldn’t be opened.
I hope they will fix this issue soon.
Oh great, so they released another broken update…
**INCOMING TRANSMISSION FROM TELETRAAN 1***
/SPARK! New spark run difficulties available and promotions cap increased!
/NEW CHARACTER! Sideswipes brother is here to clean things up!
/NEW ACCESSORIES! “We need more firepower!”
/OPTIMISED EXPERIENCE! Repairs complete. (clearly)
Icon is showing a Chinese New Year theme. Looks like we might be getting an event with Sunstreaker and some of those old dragon hats soon.
I’m going to take the plunge and update. If it works, great. If not, I could use a break…

That sort of rhymes. :DAnonymous
Alright, just updated to 22.214.171.124. I booted up the game, it then soft-updated to 126.96.36.199. So far, it’s working well. Changes I’ve noticed:
New 3-star achievement: Reach floor 10, floor ??, and floor ?? in Shockwave’s Spire.
New bot “coming soon” in the Speedsters squad.
Gold Crates now include Chinese New Year accessories.
New Spark bonus maximum. The next levels above 140% cost:
Here’s what the new rank looks like:moi@moifirst
Seems like I’m the only one with problems with this update. I’ve tried several times uninstalling and reinstalling, hoping that this will fix the problems, but unfortunately the problem remains.
Maybe it has something to do with me using Bluestacks, because I don’t have a smartphone.
However this never gave any problem in the past.
So this will probably give me time for a break until the next update (or a permanent break of the issue remains).
Wow, 1000 spark increase per promotion above 140%. So, going from 140% to 175% will cost 73500 sparks. Glad I horded sparks. I can take two bots to 175%. :)
@partshade Any change to the Spark Run?OptimusBren@optimusbren
It’s not working at all for me either. Crashes every time as soon as I open it on Android.
@partshade Working for me. Plus there’s three new achivements for reaching certain floors in the gambling depot.
@millforce2k 5th bot slot. That’s it. And maybe more score thresholds/difficulties if you’re
interested in those.
But each spark promotion now costs an increment of 1000 instead of 500 and maxes out as 175%. Also it now gives a very pretty rose colored border. I like the color.Anonymous
@datguygamer How much does the 5th bot cost? 2000?
And yeah, the rose/ruby red color looks epic.FortressMaximus@fortressmaximus
Works for me (android 7.0). Anyone know yet how many gems to unlock the 5th spark run slot?
Did anyone update on iOS? I see update but didn’t update till now? Can someone confirm that this version is working on iOS?
It doesn’t work on my tablet with Android 4.4.3, but works on my phone with Android 7.0.
This update poses an interesting question of strategy.
Since we only have a limited number of sparks:
1. do we open a fifth Sparkrun slot and promote the fifth TF? This is more economical from a sparks standpoint, since it would appear that it takes roughly as many sparks to go from 0% to 140% as it does from 140% to 175% – of course the downside is that it’ll cost you 2,500 gems on top of that, so it may not even be an option for some.
2. promote one of our existing 140% TFs to 175% (for example EGL which would give us an immediate boost in the current Competition).
There’s already a couple of +175% (Red crowned) EGLs in my leaderboard.
I guess it really depends on how badly I want that Overpowered Blaster.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>@optimuspig Thanks. Just updated and works fine in iOS. Already have 150k sparks, so will update two of my most used bots. Probably will go for Blaster and Ratchet as they are my most used at the events. Also probably will spend 2500 Gems for another bot at Spark Run, so there will be biggest chance for full Sparks from the run. I have to wait for next day for Spark Run. Then once I collect some sparks, I will go with another one, probably will continue with Dead End :). That is my plan at this moment.</p>
I don’t think is worthing update EGL for the current event. I will try to overpower Blaster wothout upgrade more to EGL. For me wuestion for fifth bot is not standing, because already have 5 at full 140%, so I will go for overpower current to 175%.
@millforce2k That’s because support for any version below 5.0 has been dropped.
@optimuspig 175% already? Wow, those players are thirsty.
@fortressmaximus @partshade Do not use your gems unless you really want the extra promotion or the chances of survival in higher difficulties (which is my main motivation).
@datguygamer I hope they didn’t code it in to this update to simply not work below 5.0 since it was fine prior to this update. I may have to look into rooting and adding a custom ROM to my table if they say I’m out of luck. I did a couple event runs on my phone and I feel like I need a magnifying glass to see the game.
@optimuspig As a gem and spark hoarder, the strategy is simple for me. Open the fifth slot and promote two of my six purple crown bots to red crown.
