Surf's Up is Out


Hey guys! At long last, the Tsunami is at the island! Well, we couldn't just have a big wave sweep over the island and call it a day, so we decided to create a new underwater area with some mysterious ruins at the bottom. Included is a stone statue that protects the area..Just tap it to find out how! What is it protecting? Hmmmmm...

Thanks for your patience! Again, the next update is more or less completed (I think we have a few tweaks to make after testing it a bit)...and will be submitted sometime tomorrow if all goes well.

  1. It's awesome! Is there any kind of easter egg with this update?

  2. I found a bug where if you activate the first islands statue and quickly make a tsunami, when you go back up, a few of the islanders are invincible, and the only way to kill them is to make them a vampire, and then bring the sun up. Another one is where you flick them to the background and make a tsunami, when you go back, they are stuck in the background, and again you can only kill them by making them a vampire. Please add a.

  3. Amazing update like always but one thing When the water is moving on the first island it looks like the volcano is levitating on the water adding splashes to the volcano when the water moves would make it look better

  6. hey bolt creative,
    plz reply.
    but the new sacrifice doesnt count as a sacrifice according to the gifts/sacrifice description, and doesnt count as anything.
    for example:
    when u kill a pygmy with the new harpoon, they die right?
    once they die check ur description for that pygmy that u just killed, and ull notice that nothing happened to the number of sacrifices for the pygmy AND it doesnt show the name of the sacrifice aswell (once u get lots of kills with the harpoon)

    pls fix

    and make zombie update!

  8. WHAT THE HECK! I CAN'T DOWNLOAD IT! MAKE IT AVAILABLE FOR THE IPHONE 2.2! I AM SO PISSED PLZ FIX THIS PROBLEM!

  9. I already found a glitch with the update. If you pick up the shark like you are going to drop it on a pygmy and make the tsunami, then bring the islanders back up to the surface, then the shark just stays in the air. What do you think?????

  10. Excellence! Hey I just found out... But if you hold the big rock over the sun it does that eclipse thing.... I think the villagers need to react to that.
    Also... The security system in the ruins is... A bit... Morbid... I don't like killing the pygme's that way *Shivers*
    Anyways awsome update! Can't for the next one.

  11. Sweet update! I love how it all looks. Protecting something? Does that mean that there's another easter egg?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I noticed that on page 12 of help there is a seemingly useless finger print to the right of the tree is that supposed to be there by the way, I absolutely love the spear it would be sweet if you guys add more stuff to the sea

  13. hey guys great job on the update, but i had problems with the skewering, i skewered each oog about 12 times which should have showed in their status (where you name them and stuff) but it didnt save their, other than that its great, I realy think since the old island and the underwater pace have statues that do cool things that the new island should to, again great job on the update.

    ReplyDelete
  14. May I make a suggestion to the new update? Its fricken Hilarious as is, but it would be nice to be able to direct the spear in any which direction WE want. that would be great. Or even be like you could draw a path for the spear to follow and get all the islanders at once. That would be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love this update. The icons and advert artwork are amazing too.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great... i love pocket god...

    It would be cool if the t-rex could go under water as well XD

    Also the shark jajaja

  19. make it so the shark can be swimming underwater and maybe even attack once in a while, also, kraken. please. this is probably my favorite update thus far. i know i like pocketgod. so kool with a "k" for emphasis.

    ReplyDelete
  20. great! love it.. thanks!
    but if pygmies can swim in underwater area, drowning will no longer relevant, right?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the new update, but isn't the underwater spear like, really harsh?!?! What if instead the octopus statue sucks the pygmys into it's mouth? And don't forget about my alien idea guys. You rock!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. With the new underwater statue does getting all 6 of them sacrificed at once do anything?..took me forever and no sweet reward..please do something with that...update is awesome..like the mini game type of play it has to it now

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sweet! Hope you ad more features underwater, great atmosphre, just a little bit empty.... Giant squid.....

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yay already downloaded it!! Wait what is it protecting!!!??? I know what it does but why!? OMG!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Keep working on the underwater, and maybe could we go to the volcano? With a volcano setting we would have rocks to play with

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the new update will it take apple so long to approve the next one

    ReplyDelete
  27. The shark should be incorporated into the underwater area. Also a new sea monster would be appropriate in this situation.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the new underwater thingy :)
    thanks.
    But killing them with a harpoon is a bit .. cruel to me :x
    But nevertheless, Pocket God is fun!!
    Keep the updates coming !! :)

  33. PUPPY LOVER WHY ARE YOU SO UP WITH THIS ALIEN IDEA I DONT EVEN LIKE IT!!!

    By the way can you guys sqeuwer 5 pgmies at once?...I CAN!!

    YOU KNOW YOU LIKE POCKETGOD

    ReplyDelete
  34. bolt creative
    please reply,
    I love the update, it's awesome!!! But, in future updates you should add things to do there. Really all you can do is kill them with the harpoon [which is an amazing idea:)] Maybe you could let the shark down there to chase and eat them, or make submarines for them to find treasure, or even add fish. I'm not complaining, I'm just making ideas. YOU KNOW YOU LIKE POCKET GOD!!!!

  35. This update is really cool but the new achievments, you can also see under ?, I don't know how to get them. I tried what I thought I should do for this but it happend nothing. Maybe they come in the next update or I do something wrong.

    Please anwser in your blog (so here) or here philipp_ha@hotmail.com .

    And again, please ANWSER

  36. I like it but a little cruel try the idea of a large octopus it could grab and eat not stab but still kewl

    ReplyDelete
  37. the new update is AWESOMEALICIOUS.
    But theres no continuity with the islands! That is to say, if we see the shark in the water while the pygmies are on the island, why not make them in the water too? It could be like return of the pygmy all over again!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I don't see why the harpoon is sooo cruel,
    I LOVE IT! it's great, just what is it protecting?? :D
    btw the idea of a statue sucking the pygmies into it also sounds cool... maybe you could make some sort of a crater hole which sucks the pygmies into it and then they go to a volcano setting?!
    Keep up the good work!

  39. For your info agk1997, my alien idea would be soooooo cool because the islanders could get beamed into the alien's spaceship and get beamed back down with their heads upside-down or something cool like that. I also agree that the under-water spear is really harsh. Could you Pocket God dudes make the statue suck the islanders up instead? You guys rock!!!!!!!!!! :) PS thanks for the support K-K

  40. THANK YOU sooo much for making it available to my Ipod, I love the new update and will continue to recommend PocketGod to all my friends (I've already gotten 5 of them to buy it!) great concept!

  41. for another sea update, there could be a gem on the sea bed and when it sparkles the pigmy could swim to it and pick it up 4/5 times an octopus could raise up and grab a pigmy with its tenticles and drag it under the seabed. :) and when they get back to the surface with the gem they put it on their heads. so it could count as a gift :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't think that good stats are saving again.. Like I saw in the help menus the achivments would have stuff like coconut bounces and shark snaps, I did those, MANY TIMES and it's not showing it in mine..

    AWESOME UPDATE THO!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hey! love the new update. i just have some suggestions. i thought it was great, but a little boring. maybe if you added more of a setting. like have schools of fish swim or crabs walk by on the bottom. Like some other people have said, i think you should also incorporate the shark to the underwater. oh and to everyone who is having problems with the flicking without moving the water, you can do this by holding the water in one place with one finger, and flicking with another. Thanks for everthing BoltCreative!

    ReplyDelete
  44. GREAT UPDATE! love the icon
    also, i found a bug. i don't know if it was already fond before, but when you turn a pygmy into a vampire, make a sunset so the vampire wont move, put a shark on another pygmy's head, and make it night again, the vampire attacks the pygmy with the shark on its head. the shark is left hanging in midair, and the app crashes. just wanted u guys to be aware of that. POCKET GD ROCKS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. There is one thing that I don't like: when you try to launch pygmies into the volcano, it creates a tsunami, so you can't throw them in the volcano anymore. Other than that, it's great!

  46. I got some ideas how about to the future or s rolor coster lol they could fall off the roller coster and battle future robots!

    ReplyDelete
  47. ok you guys really need to add something else down there. I think since you can move the water above ground, then you should be able to move it underwater - ie. making water currents to move several pygmies at once, and then spin your finger around as if making a hurricane, and it makes a whirlpool. Speaking of the hurricane, You guys need to make it so you have to spin your finger for at least 3 seconds, because pretty much as soon as I move my finger the islanders start flying... its really annoying. I also have another idea for you guys.
    Ok have you ever played Tiki Towers? If you have, you will know what i am talking about. You should be able to grab the surface of the island (either the sand or the rocky surface) and flick it to the left or right and it switches to the different island. That's like what you can do on Tiki Towers when you go to change islands - you just flick left or right. Ok tell me what you guys think of this. Cheers

  48. I got some ideas that I think would really fit in with the game they could go to the future or a roller coster lol the oogs can fight the robots (and the dinosour) in the future and they could fall off the roller coster :)

  50. Hi! Great update, i like it! i have a suggestion: what if you make locations change only while underwater? It'l look more real: After a tsunami pygmies'll find themselves on a different island, it should be interesting, how do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Anyone with volcano flicking problems:
    hold the water with one finger and flick with the other. Boltcreative please post this solution somewhere so people stop having problems. It's all in the reviews

    ReplyDelete
  52. the update is great :D
    but what would be really awesome is if when your underwater the shark could like swim around and when its going to eat one of the pygmies the JAWS theme plays. that would be so awesome!!!! ^_____^
    oh you should also make them be able to drink BAWLS lololol >:D

    ReplyDelete
  53. I found a weird glitch today in this update. If you hold the shark and then while holding it generate a tsunami and then from the water world go back to land then the shark levitates without needing to touch it. A couple other things happen, but if you tie the code string there then it should fix it. :^). Love the game by the way. It looks like you spend a long time on your artwork to give it a unique, fresh look. Also, great job Dave on optimizing the animation engine. Everything is much faster now. Peace.
