Com2uS recently updated HOMERUN BATTLE 2 to version 1.0.6, which saw many minor improvements. Among them were a better advancement curve with new achievements, new costumes, and the ability to purchase goldball uniforms piece-by-piece, now.
Between this update and the 300 star giveaway, I was starting to feel a little bit better about HOMERUN BATTLE 2. All it takes, though, is just one problem to bring all those good feelings down.
Case in point. Here we have a piece of the new White Tiger uniform. I was going to purchase the shoes which are on sale for a limited time. I spent about an hour last night Goldball farming and achievement hunting to save enough for them. Finally, I hit my 100th called shot, picked up 500 Goldballs, and went to buy my shoes.
For those who don’t know, 34 Power is the absolute minimum required to hit “Monster Shots” in most of HOMERUN BATTLE 2′s game modes. That two power and one contact boost might not seem like much, but it would lead me down a path to more goldballs and higher scores in the future.
I’ve actually seen this problem before in other games. An item goes on sale, but to buy the item, you need to have enough to buy the item at its full price. It’s a failure in coding which, unfortunately, means people looking to buy White Tiger Shoes or White Tiger Gloves will need to obtain its full price of 3380 Goldballs before you can pick it up.
Sigh… 710 more to go…
Update: It took a few hours, but I farmed enough Goldballs to verify it. Once you have enough to buy an item at full price, the game will then ask you if you want to purchase it at its sale price.
Update #2: I contacted Com2uS for more information. They had the following to say:
We are sorry for any inconvenience. Our developers are releasing a fix for this bug in the next update coming soon. Please stay tuned.
Yes, that’s your standard line, but it is good to know they are aware of the problem and that a fix is on the way.Tweet
