Release Notes 1.8.1

Celebrate the holidays with fearfully festive surprises. Pay no mind to that shiver that just went up your spine - I’m sure it’s just the cold…

Spine-tingling seasonal surprises are in store for you for the whole month of December. Here’s a closer look:


12 Days of Christmas

  • By popular demand, Vendy is in a giving mood once again!
  • In the spirit of the season of giving, players can log in and receive a special daily gift from your favorite shop monster.
  • Daily gifts begin on Dec. 14th and continue through Christmas Day.
  • Be sure to check in with Vendy every day to ensure you don’t miss a gift!

Holiday Visuals

  • Beginning Dec. 7th, Vendy will be decked out in his holiday best.
  • Jacks are getting in on the festive fun as well.
  • Enjoy the chilly weather and decorative lights on the home screen.

Holiday Portraits

  • Beginning Dec. 7th, players can obtain limited-time, holiday-themed portraits of Werewolf and Heavo.
  • These portraits will only be available as rare rewards in Jacks.
  • These portraits are also only available until Jan. 4, 2024, so try your luck while you can!

Bug Fixes:


  • Fixed an issue that caused the movement of flying Phobies on some maps to be blocked by map objects that should not have limited their movement.
  • Fixed an issue in which battle log replays of surrendered and expired games were missing turns and not displaying end-of-game screen.


  • Fixed an issue with Tooth Fairy’s last act damage scaling too high.
  • Fixed an issue where a Glob that was being digested by an enemy Glob could still inflict digestion damage on its attacker.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the debuffs of Wooly Bully and Blue to stack unintentionally.
  • Improved Mr. Tramples pathfinding to prioritize enemy tiles over empty tiles.
  • Changed the order of Miss Moffat’s pull ability (damage first, pull second) to align with the behavior of other Phobies with the pull ability. This was causing inconsistent results when used against resurrect Phobies.


  • Fixed various potential causes of crashes and game desyncs.

Best wishes to all of our players for the coming holiday season!

Happy battling,

The Phobies Team
