WallaBee 2.2.7 Notes

Hello Collectors!

Version 2.2.7 is now available for iOS and Android! The team has been working diligently to make your playing experience better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we have yet to address, we would love to hear from you! Remember to email support with any concerns.

Features

  • Collectibles: Search/Sorting/Reordering
  • Pouch: Search/Sorting/Reordering
    • Long-press for item menu
  • Favorite items (all items; limit 12)
  • Foraging screen reimplemented
  • Adjusted speed of star on item created/found pages
  • Fixed an issue with store showing the incorrect image during drop
  • Minor performance improvements and bug fixes

Collectibles: Search/Sorting/Reordering

Players can search, organize, and sort their items in every set and subset of the Collectibles section of the app.

Pouch: Search/Sorting/Reordering

Search by item name, number, and status (Locked, Market, Trade)!

Move items in your pouch by utilizing the Move Mode button! Sort items automatically based on Alphabetical (ascending), Number (ascending), and item created (oldest at the top).

Long-press an item to access the context menu from the pouch! This will save you lots of time!

Items that have requirements to open (Wishing Well) will now only show their extra options when the requirements are met.

Favorite Items

Players can mark any saved item as a Favorite by toggling the heart icon while viewing the item. We are limiting this feature to 12 items per player, with the possibility of this number growing in the future.

View the item from its set or the Favorites section to remove it from your Favorites.

Foraging Screen Update

We’ve brought back a familiar screen, but with a twist! Players will now see Benson’s magnifying glass move about the screen in order to find honeycombs and items when foraging! Adding this screen allows us to reduce the number of API calls made to the server, increasing performance during peak times.

 


Known Issues

We will update this list and the known issues

  • Locked items still show the old icon (header updated).
  • Store items sometimes show an incorrect set icon.

WallaBee 2.2.5 & 2.2.6 Notes

Hello Collectors!

Version 2.2.5 2.2.6 is now available for iOS in the App Store! Android users will see the update available very soon on the Play Store! The WallaBee team has been working diligently to make your playing experience better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we haven’t addressed, we would love to hear from you. Remember to email support with any concerns.

To allow for players to update, there will be a 24 hour drop-free time period beginning now 7:15am, Saturday April 6th (CDT). Expired

Features

  • NEW BRANDING! We have updated the WallaBee logo and various icons within the game. You’ll find all of our beautiful Set Icons updated to a wonderful flat style, along with some icon touchups on your profile page. You’ll also see much more of Benson! What’s not to love there!
  • Collectibles have been added as a new collection type. Jump further down in the blog to read more.
  • Unique Items have been split into various “themed” subsets.
  • Sets are now broken up by generation.
  • Items can now be purchased with “Buy It Now” option from the market without a player listing.
  • Adjusted profile layout.
  • Reorganized Settings page.
  • Various bug fixes.
    • Profile bio doesn’t disappear when viewing from settings page (and no changes are made).
    • Send Message button updated for Return key (line break).
    • “Forever scroll” through the Store.
    • Optimized image loading in the Store
    • Honeycomb balance shows in Market.
    • Unable to send blank messages.

Collectibles

We’re taking a new approach to items that previously lived on your profile page (Branded, Wallagraphic, and Uniques)! You’ll now find a “Collectibles” section on your profile tab that holds all items in WallaBee that don’t fit into a WB-released set.

Similar to how all WallaBee Sets have a circular icon, all Collectibles will have a star-shaped icon. Collectibles will also only show you items and subsets that you have collected, instead of displaying missing ‘gaps’ in your collection. This means that all Collectibles are 100% optional to collect, without the dreaded “x/y” insinuating you have to collect them. Here’s a quick breakdown of the various new categories you’ll find within Collectibles.

Exclusive Items

Previously known as WallaBee Uniques, these items are obtained through normal gameplay (foraging, mixing, purchasing in store).

Examples of these are WallaBy, Super Burger, and Wand Of Transformation.

Themed Exclusive Items

An extension of the above, these items are categorized for your convenience by their theme.

Examples of these are Grab Bags, Mixers, and Branded Items.

Wallagraphic Items

This set no longer has a x/y view. Not interested in collecting these? No worries!

Unique Items

100% Player or Staff distributed items. Can be commissioned by players when available.

Examples include Saint Nicholas, Yorkshire Rose, and Jack Frost.

Themed Unique Items

Just like the above, but themed into smaller player-owned (or staff-owned) subsets.

All Themed Unique subsets will contain a rainbow border around the edge of the star, with a customized icon within.
This helps distinguish a player-owned set from a Themed Exclusive set

Examples include BAU items, Texas Music Legends, and Fantastic Creatures.

Generations

One issue that newer players have when creating an account is the sheer amount of items there are to collect. The Sets page can be really intimidating with over 170 sets listed. So in order to help our organizing efforts, improve app performance, and ease newer players into collecting in smaller chunks… we’ve split the long list of sets into “bite-sized” bits. With this update, each generation contains 50 sets. We know this will take some getting used to for our current players, but we are sure the transition will be quick to learn! Our website (and ItemBrowser) also reflects this update to help keep consistency.

We look forward to adding even more updates soon, including the ability to save variants! It’s coming, don’t worry. 😉

New Branding Leak

Hello Collectors,

Happy Monday! As we get closer to rolling out the next app update, we want to take you behind the scenes and show off some upcoming changes. However, in order to do that, we first need to leak some information about the future look of WallaBee! That’s right, WallaBee will be receiving a new coat of paint and a brand new logo.

 

After 7 years of being on the market, we felt that a facelift was in tall order. While the old logo was great and served its purpose well over the past seven years, we believe it is time to highlight WallaBee’s fun, lighthearted style with an updated look. Along with a new logo, WallaBee will also see some visual updates in the app that help bring this game up to our artistic standards and pave a route for the app to continue moving seamlessly into the 2020’s. You’ll begin seeing some of these visual changes occur on the blog and website over the next few days, with some specific leaks through social media.
