Spring Egg Hunt 2013

25 March 2013

Spring Egg Hunt!
The Chocolate Factory has re-opened its doors and this year's Spring Egg Hunt has begun in Gnawnia! But, like clockwork, some trouble-making mouse harbouring a strange obsession with eggs has hatched a plan to sabotage the Eggscavator, making it impossible for hunters to track down eggs!
Hunters must travel to the Chocolate Factory, catch mice to find and use Marshmallow Monterey, and capture 10 eggs being dropped by the mice there in order to re-calibrate the Eggscavator. Once it's been re-tuned, hunters can then travel across the land and collect special eggs from mice and areas! Hunters who don't yet have an Eggscavator from last year's Spring Egg Hunt can pick one up in the Chocolate Factory's General Store and begin the hunt to re-calibrate it.
The factory doors close and the production of eggs ends on Monday, April 15, so get on out there and get crackin'!

Each egg holds a special treasure inside and hunters can collect as many of them as they like! Can you complete your entire collection of eggs? Or will you go for as many of your absolute favourite eggs as possible?
When you find an egg, visit the Special [1] section of your inventory to smash it open!

Re-acquire, Re-tune, Re-calibrate

Marshmallow Monterey
Hunt in the Chocolate Factory to find mice carrying Marshmallow Monterey. This strangely sweet 'n' peppery cheese has an aroma and flavour only a mouse could love.

Faulty Eggscavator
The Eggscavator may look to be in working order, but it's having trouble tracking down the special egg signal that Spring Egg Hunt eggs broadcast. In order to get it re-calibrated so that you can hunt down those eggs, you'll need to use Marshmallow Monterey to capture mice that drop special factory eggs. Once these have been re-acquired, the Eggscavator will pick up the "scent" and you'll be able to hunt all across the land for Spring Egg Hunt eggs!
When you find an egg, visit the Special [2] section of your inventory to smash it open!

Eggy Charms

Eggscavator Charge Charms
Some special charms have appeared in the Chocolate Factory Charm Shoppe that allow you to charge up your Eggscavator (after it's been re-calibrated) in order to find special Charge eggs! When you hunt with Eggscavator Charge Charms equipped, you build up 1 charge per catch on your Eggscavator and have a chance to find special Charge eggs based on the number of charges built up. Keep your Eggscavator charged at all times for the best chance to find these extra-special Charge eggs!

Eggstra Charms
The incredible magic of these charms will duplicate any bonus eggs dropped by mice, giving you TWO eggs instead of just one. Use Marshmallow Monterey in the Chocolate Factory Charm Shoppe to create these charms, or pickup an Egg Hunting Kit which comes with 5 charms and plenty of Marshmallow Monterey.
Use Marshmallow Monterey in the Chocolate Factory Charm Shoppe to create these eggy charms. After the Spring Egg Hunt is over, any eggcess charms can be smashed with your Hunter's Hammer to create Dark Chocolate Charms.

Dark Chocolate Charms

Made of 88% coco and 12% evil, this sinister piece of confectionery will attract spooky mice when hunting at the Chocolate Factory! Before you arm this charm make sure your trap is properly prepared and that you're up for a challenge! Buy some from the Charm Shoppe!

Ronza Is Under Attack!

7 March 2013

It's MouseHunt's 5th Birthday, and who else should arrive to help celebrate but RONZA! Her fantastic flying airship is - as always - loaded down with fantastic traps and goodies to help capture the varied and vengeful mice of Gnawnia. You'll need them too, as those mice have finally had enough, and have formed the Mouse Force Five; a super-team with the goal of destroying Ronza forever!

Purchase and equip your most powerful traps and use them to defeat the individual members of the Mouse Force Five, collecting robot scraps as you do. When you have enough, visit Ronza's trapsmith to purchase something that could be used as a robot head, then craft your own Super Robot Trap in her store to challenge the Mouse Force Five's evil super robot! Defeat it enough times in open combat so they'll break off their attack, and you'll have saved Ronza!

Help fight off the robot before Monday, March 18 and Ronza will reward you with a birthday cake! Ronza takes off on that day giant evil robot or no, so be sure to visit her before she's gone!

Robot Menace Terrorizes Gnawnia!

A GIGANTIC robotic mouse is stomping all over Gnawnia, threatening the Kingdom and making Ronza feel a little stressed out! Help fight off this colossal mousey robo-beast and keep Gnawnia and Ronza safe!

Mouse Force Five

Members from a new elite mouse team called the Mouse Force Five are attacking Ronza's airship! You must hunt them down and collect Robot Scraps from each of the 5 mice in order to build your own massive robot trap.

Robot Scraps

Each member of the Mouse Force Five drops a different Robot Scrap that you will need to collect. Once all 5 types have been collected, you can piece them together to create the arms, legs, and torso of your very own giant robot trap!

Repurposed Robot Head

The only thing missing from your robot is the head! Luckily, Ronza has tons of spare trap parts lying around and these can be repurposed to form the final piece of your Ultra MegaMouser MechaBot Trap! Visit her General Store to buy one.

Amazing New Ronza Traps!

Ronza is known for bringing the foremost in trap technology, and this year is no different. Her wares are sure to impress and scare even the most jaded of mouse, and perhaps cause them to think twice before attempting to steal that chunk of cheese.

The Isle Idol Trap

When hunting in the Tribal Isles with this fantastic new trap, you'll get double the crafting drops from the Derr, Nerg, and Elub mice! "But they're all different power types!" I hear you say. True! Which is why this amazing trap comes with two skins that change the power type from Physical to Hydro to Tactical and back again, while maintaining the double-drop powers!

Tarannosaurus Rex Trap

You wanna talk ancient and Forgotten? What's more ancient than dinosaur bones? Dread magic animates these primeval bones while boiling, bubbling tar drips all around. Any mouse brave or foolish enough to attempt to steal cheese from beneath its claws must be careful to avoid the sticky tar and the swift claws. Only the strongest and quickest mice will escape!

Chrome MonstroBot

Introducing the peak pinnacle of power, last legacy of luck, the absolute authority of awesomeness... the Chrome MonstroBot! Smash down your existing Sandstorm MonstroBot, dip the parts in the brand-new Chrome MonstroBot Upgrade Kit Ronza has brought, and then re-assemble them into the biggest, the shiniest, the straight-up wildest trap MouseHunt has ever seen!

It's a Charming Party!

Looking for an extra challenge? Pick up some Party Charms at Ronza's Trapsmith, or in the Birthday Party Pack or the Super MechaParty Box, then equip them to attract more interesting and challenging mice while hunting down the Mouse Force Five!

Rockforth to the Beat!

Collect and equip Rockforth Cheese from mice at Ronza's Traveling Shoppe to draw out the elusive Rockstar Mouse, who only shows up when there's a big enough party to attend!
