Introducing exciting new permanent additions that fundamentally enhance the game’s experience, the update offers players New Objectives to sink their teeth into. Requiring 2,500 idols, access to the new objectives rewards the most veteran players, offering deeper challenges and rewards.
In Top Tier your merry band must reach area 350 with only half of the available Crusaders afforded to you as the team get split up. Everyone from The Bushwhacker to Merci, the Mad Wizard can be selected. Everyone from Jim the Lumberjack through Nate Dragon will be locked out. But how will I reset? We hear you cry. Don’t worry, Merci has taken Nate’s reset ability for this objective.
‘Let It Go’ is the first of the two new objectives for Grimm’s Idle Tales and features a quite familiar-looking lady by the name of Elsa, who just happens to have some magical winter abilities. Unfortunately, as powerful as she is, she’s hasn’t quite learned how to control her powers and keeps freezing adjacent Crusaders every 10 seconds. The affected heroes will have their DPS reduced to 0 for 15 seconds, but thankfully their formation buffs are unharmed.
The final new objective is ‘I Like Potatoes.’ Headlined by an evil potato mayor who has pilfered all your precious idols, and the only way to get them back is to destroy him and get revenge.

ABOUT CODENAME ENTERTAINMENT: Codename Entertainment was founded in 2008 in Victoria, B.C. by David Whittaker and Justin Stocks with the successful launch of their first title, “Egg Breaker.” Egg Breaker’s success hatched three successive games, Egg Breaker 2, Egg Drop and the current title in the series, Egg Breaker Adventures. Created in 2010, the classic Bush Whacker appealed to adventurers who were looking to smack some shrubbery and see what popped out. Following its success, Bush Whacker 2 was released in 2012 and celebrated its third anniversary earlier this year with much cake. It was not a lie. In 2015, the company launched Crusaders of the Lost Idols for players looking for an idle game of heroic awesomeness.
Mini Review by Elizabeth
When the above press release was sent to us, I had never heard of the game, and so before I felt happy publishing it, I wanted to check it out. I am not a massive fan of quick casual games, never really finding the time for them, but I made a little time for Crusaders of the Lost Idols, and whilst it is true that it does not set the gaming world alight with a burning fire of innovation, its great fun, and I had aboslutely no trouble wasting half an hour a night for a couple of nights!
As with any casual game, its gotta be easy to play, and I found it incredibly easy – you go through a quick tutorial and then the rest if self-explanatory. I played on a touch screen laptop and was very happy indeed to see how well the game responded, I use a combo of touch and click and it works perfectly.
The combination of easy game play and fun if simple graphics sets this up a really nice fun to play levelling casual game, which is also free to play (if you watch the odd advert, you can obtain boosts for a few hours).
