Become a Bug Hunter

The BugMaster General Needs YOU!

Stratos, the BugMaster General, writes: Bug Hunters... unite!

OUR MISSION: To confirm every bug, mistake, glitch, hack, typo, and error in HeroSmash that other players report at www.Artix.com/Bugs! NOTE: We are Bug Hunters... not player support! We do not fix bugs other players' characters, accounts, or upgrades.

"The bigger the bug, the more satisfying the squish!"

If the line up there makes your fingers itch to grab a mallet and squash something, then keep reading, because you're just what Stratos is looking for! Read on for more details:

Please post the following on the HS forum:

1. A link to your HS character page

2. The languages you speak/write

3. A couple sentences about how long you've played HeroSmash, and why you want to help squish bugs.

Here are Stratos' requirements for joining the Bug Hunter crew:

1. You need to have Skype installed. This will let him contact you directly about any of the bugs you've encountered.

2. You must be age 13 or older to join the crew, but 18+ is preferred (as we can give you more responsibilities once you've gained experience)

3. Help when you can. We don't have set times for our Bug Hunters to be available, but we would like you to be available to help regularly. 

4. Must be able to follow directions... and ask questions! Stratos has a system set up, but if there's something you don't understand, ASK! He wants to help you squish the bugs as much as you want to squish them!

5. Good critical thinking skills are a plus. (Being able to see a problem and narrow down the source or reason can speed the fixing process up.)

(Please do not include your age, email address, or Skype name when posting. Stratos will be able to contact you without them. Thank you!)

So... What Now? How do I Start Squashing?

Stratos will contact you directly if you look like a good fit for this task. It won't always (or even often) be fun. You'll read reports, play HeroSmash until it breaks, then go do paperwork. But you WILL be helping the DF dev team improve the game!

Reading reports and duplicating bugs over and over again not for you? That's OK! But DO we need EVERYONE's help reporting the bugs on the Bug Tracker!

We can't fix HeroSmash unless we know there are bugs... and that's where YOU come in!

Demolicious vs. Da Vinci: Final Battle!

Greetings, Heroes and Villains of Super City!  This week, the war between Demolicious and Luigi Da Vinci reaches its end.  Their fight over the statue of Pandora in the Park has been raging for months now.  It looks like the Villains are winning!  YOU, the players, have determined the outcome of this war, and where this story goes next is because of you!  There is still time, however, for the Heroes of Super City to band together and turn the tide of the war. 

Either way, expect boss battles, new items, and an awesome special cutscene from Yergen!
