Magic is a randomly-occurring event that was implemented on January 12, 2011. When a player collects a Coin or a Blue Coin, there is a small chance of it being a magic coin. If a Magic Coin is collected, a message will appear in the Chat and the player will get a pop-up message stating what the player earned.

Basic Information

Here is some basic information the Magic system and how it works.

  • Magic Coins do not have distinct appearances.
  • Magic Coins appear randomly.
  • A message displays informing you that you have found a Magic Coin.
  • You may get only one Magic Coin in a single world session.
  • There are 3 types of Magic coins, rewarding Energy, special Smileys, and special Blocks respectively.
  • Coins reward Smileys, and Blue Coins reward Blocks. However, both can reward Energy.
  • Only a few are allowed per world session at most. The most ever seen in a session was 3.

Obtaining Magic

Magic can be obtained by normal play, but there are factors that can reduce or increase the likeliness of finding Magic.

  • The Magic algorithm depends on key inputs. You'll have the most luck playing through normal worlds without too many Coins.
  • Coin farming levels do not provide any magic.
  • Worlds with too many Coins have reduced chances of Magic. When a level has ~500 coins, the world won't allow any chance of Magic.
  • You'll have higher chances of Magic with the less people there are in a level. Try playing worlds without anyone in them.
  • Once someone gets Magic in a world, the chances of anyone else getting Magic for that world session are decreased.

Glitches

The Magic system had its fair share of screw-ups. Major ones are listed below.

2011

  • Due to a glitch, Magic Coins had a one in a trillion chance to be found (1/1,000,000,000,000). However, updates made chances much higher.

2015

  • The Magic algorithm was broken for a day, and Magic Coins were EXTREMELY common, players earned around 400 Max Energy and a lot of Magic Blocks that day. This was known as the 2015 Magic Rush.
