Excavate the Japanese ruins!

The Japanese Ruins


Look out, we’ve found some Japanese Ruins that need your help to break through the different block doors.

Until 13/05/2019 14:00, join Namazu as it will help you progress from room to room. You will also find the jackpot for the contest, a Namazu companion, in the last room.

Search for the Namazu companion


Each room has 4 doors that requires you to break one with the help of the Namazu so you can enter the next room.

Once unblocked, you can click on the room to move through the door to the room behind it. Each door has a specific number of hits for it to break, which are displayed on the doors. There are several types of doors as shown in the spoiler below.

Click to display
Gift doors: They will sometimes have a gift behind it and opening the door wins it!

Nue monsters: Just as the wargs from previous editions, Nue is an obstacle that you will have to wait for the indicated time or skip it by finished the proposed objective.

Divine Fragments: Some doors will contain the Samurai divine Fragments (Earn more or try to win this divine through the Golden Fleece and learn more about this brand-new series).


While it is possible to open all the doors for the gifts, and you can go through them again once the you have explored all the rooms, the gifts and companion can be received only once. This includes the companion, Namazu.

Who is Namazu?


Click to display
Namazu is a creature that helps you get through all the rooms. He hits the door, but also requires periodic rest when he runs out of energy. Once the energy gauge is empty, you must either wait for him to recharge or pay for a refill of 6 charges for 90 passes. The battery refills by point once every 3-hours and can be upgraded to reach once every hour.


Improvements for Namazu


Click to display
The Namazu can be improved, at any time, by clicking on the ‘improve’ button (on the Namazu, top left).

On the improvements page, every upgrade can be seen with the tools or pass needed to get them.

The Namazu can be improved, at any time, by clicking on the ‘improve’ button (on the Namazu, top left).

On the improvements page, every upgrade can be seen with the tools or pass needed to get them.

There are 3 types of improvements, depending on the player's strategy/preferred play-style. The player can choose from:


Charging Time - accelerates the battery regeneration

"Drilling Power" - increases the power of each drill (clicks)

Battery Capacity - increases the battery's capacity (convenient if you log in less often)

The Namazu can be improved 6 times using tools or passes: 2 improvements possible on each upgrade type. Players have to upgrade the Namazu progressively.


Happy excavating,

Like the ease of this event.
I have just one issue so far. I have blank walls that show with glass? for braking. No prizes, but when broken give a prize. The animals show up behind the glass, and the upgrade pieces, just not the prizes.

It would make a difference to which path i choose if I could tell what was in the door.
Is anyone else having this issue?

Ok help, what does it mean if there's rocks behind instead of a gift? Does that mean I have to drill more? Or it's blocked so no point breaking the "door"

Blank walls without prizes are just that, no prizes.
The rock walls you can't break as there is no door there.

Very intuitive promo, but the recharge time is ridiculous. This event is really slow-paced, but I love collecting the divine fragments.

You need 3 tools to make the next step. Once you get the third tool click on the improve and where the numbers show up ( it will say 3) and you will get an automatic upgrade.

could be a broken image Tatty Teddy? I know some browsers are being more than a little flaky since the last update was released by the site default smiley :(

(and janedeer, are you trying to upgrade the battery capacity (1 tools) or the recharge (you're shy of 1 tools piece as it needs three all up)?

Want another chance to win Samurai? Just earn at least 2 Golden horseshoes to automatically be entered in the draw that takes place after the event ends!

Best of luck to one-and-all!

I feel silly. I've only just figured out that 6 + beside the pic of the robot and your charges are clicks you can use....

I'm guessing they do not regenerate like the charges do, though.
I'm happy with what I've got out of this promo so far, but I will probably not go for Samurai.
