Boom Beach, the strategy video game from developer Supercell has received a new update titled "The Last Crustacean."

Supercell, while revealing that this is only a "small" update as it is working on "something amazing" for January, promised that this update will "keep things fresh for Task forces".

Boom Beach was released on 26 March, 2015, for iOS and Android platforms, it is a freemium game where the attacks on other players and the attacks against the computer generated bases are combined.  

Below are the patch notes for the new update (Supercell Forum):

·         10 new Power Base layouts

·         Operation participation % won't include successful operations, if you didn't attack

·         Sabotage can now target Shield Generators and Damage Amplifiers

·         Several graphical updates for Vault levels

·         Dr. Terror is now called Dr. T (while Boom Beach is set in a fantasy world, we have changed the character's name to Dr. T given recent real-world events)

·         Lots of bug fixes!

Supercell also released some of the "Known Issues" in Boom Beach. It noted that it has disabled the Operation base noted with maintenance and the issue will be fixed "as soon as possible" and it might take some time.

Crash fixed: Supercell has fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when players started to scout or attack Power Bases with saved Base Notes, after the new update. However, the Base Notes is currently disabled.

Issue with local leaderboards: Supercell said that it was aware of the problem where some players were not able to see their rank in the local leaderboard. The issue is being investigated.

Issue where Google Play says that the device is not compatible with the version:  The developers noted that it was aware of the issue where some were receiving error messages saying that the devices were not compatible, despite the fact that the game is compatible with the device.

Supercell said it is currently investigating it and suggested a temporary workaround in such situations:

·         Clear the Google Play Store's data from the phone

·         Try installing Boom Beach

[Settings > Application Manager > All > Google Play Store > Clear data.]

It also suggested another solution:

·         Re-install the Google Play Store App

[Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store > uninstall updates]

·         Now install Boom Beach.

We have to wait and see what the new January update for Boom Beach will consist of, it could be something as massive as the new Town Hall 11 update for Clash of Clans.
