New AwesomerEdit

  • Odyssey Mode is here! Join Modysseus on an epic adventure each week!
  • Earn Trophies by completing Easy, Medium, or Hard Odysseys
  • Choose the Hero, Monkeys, and Powers that will allow you to win each map in that Odyssey
  • Uniquely themed Odyssey challenges each week
  • Odyssey badge to show off total Odyssey stars collected (find it in your Main Menu Profile)
  • Trophy Store with a ton of monkeytastic cosmetic items including:
  • Hero Pets & special Hero placement animations
  • Crazy Bloon Skins and decals
  • Awesome new Co-op Emotes of all varieties, even audio (apologies in advance!)
  • Brand new Jukebox remix tracks never heard before!
  • Signature Profile Avatars, with their own unique styles
  • Named Monkeys for Custom Tower Names & stat tracking
  • New Octojones skin for Striker Jones
  • In keeping with Odyssey, the Lotus Island beginner map, sporting some new interactive tech

Key Notes and Other New FeaturesEdit

  • Buff Double Cash mode will now apply in co-op mode for players who own it!
  • Odyssey Notes:
    • Odyssey has been a long time coming - we wanted to make it as variable and customizable as possible at launch, with extensible systems that allow it to evolve update to update; thanks, awesomer community, for your requests and patience!
    • Trophy rewards do not stack from difficulty to difficulty - the 50 Trophies from Hard difficulty is the maximum, so if you play Easy and win 15, then play Medium which has a 25 Trophy base reward, you will only get the 10 Trophy delta between those two reward levels
    • Badge stars also do not stack - the 5 stars from Hard is the maximum per Odyssey; we made both of these design calls so players do not feel compelled to play all 3 Odysseys to maximize rewards or bragging rights - play all 3 only if you’ll have fun doing that!
    • Powers can be purchased in-game up to the value that you put into your Crew loadout; for instance, you don’t have to have 5 Supermonkey Storms to allocate 5 to your Crew loadout and doing that gives you the option to buy up to that Crew allocated number if you find that you need them
    • A few things that work differently for Odyssey - no freeplay, no replays of completed maps or difficulties, and no co-op; our goal was to keep Odyssey purely focused on challenging, multi-map, single-player adventures - then evolve from there
  • Trophy Store Notes:
    • Trophy Store has also been a long time coming, ever since we introduced Trophies in Races - some of you knew they’d be good for something!
    • Races and Odysseys are the only way to obtain Trophies in the game
    • We started with a wide range of Store items so that any stockpiled Trophies could be put to good use, but for all but the top Racers there should be plenty of items to go after
    • Intent is to offer a smaller set of new Trophy Store items with most Updates
    • We look forward to your feedback about which items you’d like to see more of!
    • Remember you can mute co-op emotes if you are tired of seeing (and hearing!) them
    • The Bloon skins currently only apply to the base blimps and don't affect any fortified versions.
  • Named Monkeys Notes:
    • This Trophy Store item allows players to name the first monkey of each tower type
    • Once named you can see certain related stats for that particular monkey
    • The named monkey is always the first monkey of that tower type placed in a game and will continue to track lifetime stats even if you change the name
    • Heroes cannot be named and subsequent monkeys of a given tower type cannot be named
    • Monkeys cannot be named with inappropriate or offensive words
  • In relation to both Odyssey reward values and player feedback on Race rewards, we have increased the top Race Trophy rewards and included a new Top 50 category for more granularity between the Top 1% and the Top 3
  • The Hero Booster in-app purchase (used to be $1.99 USD for an instant Level 20) has been removed, and instead has been replaced with an option to boost your current hero up to level 10 for a Monkey Money cost (BloonjaminsIcon50 per level for base heroes, more for higher level heroes). The price of this item will be reduced if you already have levels on your hero, and is not available after level 10.
  • Towers should now record separate Damage and Cash counters & many will display both of these values in the UI now and we’ll look into adding trickier cash counting cases in future updates

Happy New Year!Edit

Bloons TD 6 had a fantastic 2019 and we'll be working our tails off to make sure that 2020 is even bigger and better! Pretty high bar because 2019 saw 11 Maps, 3D MOABs, updated Collection Events, Challenge Editor, Co-Op, Co-Op Stats and Callouts, Emotes, Pat Fusty, Adora, 5 hero skins, Engineer Monkey, and a whole bunch of secrets and specials like hidden achievements, big Bloon and tiny Bloon modes, and dark Adora. Whew, we've got our work cut out for us. Hmm, what could we do? Maybe... Odyssey Mode, Trophy Store with customization for visuals and music, Boss Bloons, Power Pros, more Challenge Editor functions, new Knowledge, new Heroes, new Monkey Towers, some top secret surprises, and at every step making the game run better, look better, and be more fun and challenging to play solo and with friends. Hope that sounds like a good 2020 ahead!

Awesome New StuffEdit

  • New expert map Infernal, a lavaish and truly magmananimous map that makes gameplay flow easily.
  • New Quincy 'Wolfpack' skin joins pack Quincy
  • New 'Collection View' toggle in the Insta Monkeys
  • Once you've unlocked a new Insta Monkey, it will remain unlocked to view in your collection even after using it in-game.

Monkey Knowledge ChangesEdit

  • Buff Maximum player rank cap increased to 155
  • Buff Knowledge tree has been reworked along with 5 new Knowledge types
  • New Knowledges:
    • Come On Everybody! - Co-ordinated boosts to all Primary towers
    • Wingmonkey - Monkey Aces group together for advanced strikes
    • Tiny Tornadoes - Druids are even Blowier Awayier
    • Healthy Bananas - Marketplaces stock fresher bananas with no added DDT
    • Weak Point - Heroes make more vital strikes against stronger targets
  • Nerf Addition of Monkey Money thresholds - rows 4 and below on any of the trees will now have Monkey Money requirements alongside the Knowledge Point required, and that kind of change deserves some explanation and context
    • How it works: if you've already spent your points, there is no change; you don't have to pay "back" any Monkey Money. Any unspent points applied to rows 4 and below will have a Monkey Money requirement, so by all means get the Knowledge on update 14 before updating to 15. If you've spent Monkey Money on a Knowledge and respec, you get the point back but the Monkey Money remains invested - you don't have to pay Monkey Money for that particular knowledge again.
    • Why Ninja Kiwi changed it: they have always intended Monkey Knowledge to grow, so that means more cumulative power, and some strong new Knowledges. The current one point per Knowledge with light sequential requirements and nothing else to do with Knowledge Points doesn't do a good enough job of governing or guiding the varying strength of the Knowledge trees. The Monkey Money requirement provides both, asking players to make a considered choice by using a resource that has value in many other places in the game. As Ninja Kiwi adds tougher modes and Bloons, they can add more and better Knowledge, and this gives the team a better way to indicate and to govern that power according to that value.
