Pocket God [99¢] is an App Store phenomenon that just doesn't stop. Originally released all the way back in January of 2009, Pocket God has now seen it's 40th major content update, which basically blows away every other iOS game imaginable when it comes to updates. Looking back on it, if you flipped out a buck on the game back when it was first released, how far that dollar has gone is just incredible. Similarly, the amount of content included in Pocket God now is just nuts, to the point that I don't really even know where you'd start if you just downloaded it today.

The latest update, entitled "Battle of the Gods plays off the previous update where players collected idols. These idols are now used for what amounts to almost rock paper scissors Pokemon-style battles with your pygmies. You can get a look at how this all works in the associated trailer that was just released:

The "Battle of the Gods" update should be slowly propagating throughout the App Store now, so if it isn't appearing for you yet just wait a bit and it should. We've got to tip our hat at Bolt Creative's Dave Castelnuovo and Allan Dye for sticking with Pocket God for so long. I mean really, 40 updates? That's just nuts. Also, if you haven't yet, be sure to give Pocket God: Journey to Uranus [99¢] a try as well.

    I just liked flinging them and turning my iphone on its side and watching them panick and beg for mercy as they fell off the island. And later on I liked burning them, zapping them, throwing things at them, doing the vampire thing on them, it was fun for abit a mayhem.
