Superhero Bonus[edit | edit source]

Superhero Bonus Issue 1.png

As it happens in some major events, players were able to get bonus Donuts once they had unlocked the last prize in the current prize track. Every 10000 Brass Knuckles, 12000 Soilant Red, and 12000 Crab Juice Cans, they were presented with 3 boxes containing either one, two or three Donuts. The boxes worked similar to the ones from the Bonus Levels. However instead of the usual 50,000 Cash, players had to spend 150,000 Cash to open another box.

Crafting[edit | edit source]
