616284_largerThis past January, Chillingo and LambdaMu Games released Pixel People [Free], a free-to-play city builder that was full of charm and plenty to discover. Sure, it was your typical free-to-play kind of experience, filled with timers and in-game currency and plenty of mostly mindless clicking, but it was a damn fun one. Since our original review of Pixel People, the game has been well-supported with updates, expanding pretty much everything from its initial release.

Today Pixel People has received its biggest update yet. Dubbed the "Earth-shattering update" it adds more than 30 new jobs, 20 new mutants, and 12 new buildings to the mix, as well as 30 new achievements to earn. Of course, in true Pixel People fashion, there are also plenty of new secrets to discover throughout the environments and through splicing genes.

Biggest of all, you'll be able to visit your friends Utopias and see how they've chosen to rebuild the world post-apocalypse. You can also trade items with friends or send them some gifts if you're feeling particularly generous. Check out all the new "ground-breaking update" features in this new trailer.

Be sure to check out the App Store description for a complete detail of what's new, as well as check in with our forums for some discussion. Pixel People was a giant time-suck already, but now with the ability to visit far off lands and trade new items with friends, and all the other new content, you might as well cancel your plans for the rest of the week.

      Worse yet, you're greeted by a mission that you can't complete every time after placing the Pet Store without Facebook friends.

        That's a bug. Really apologize for that!

    Until saves between devices work again I'm not interested. I would focus there. I really love this game but my iPad doesn't have 3g and I'm not restarting on my iPhone.

    At first I was overjoyed with this update...

    Then... I found out it bugs up the game REALLY BADLY.

    For one, the Ministry of Love building I bought before the update isn't working anymore. (And they now more than DOUBLED the price of it)

    For two, I have to pay AGAIN for the Workaholic ability at the Enterprise.

    (Nice lying when you said FOREVER, cause you're trying to steal my cash right now)

    You already got my money, now make this work!!!

    This update is ATROCIOUS.

    I lost the purchases I made with REAL MONEY before the update... Quite the way to steal people's money!
    Especially when you're supposed to keep the things, FOREVER, as stated in the game.

    No more Ministry of love, it's not working anymore (they doubled the price now too)

    No more Workaholic ability... and I'm not paying 5$ AGAIN.

    Whow...

    Seriously ?

      I haven't encountered a pet shop pop-up even once. But every time I load up the game, I'm located out in the middle of space, nowhere near my city, and the mechanic yabbers on at me about the telephone company. I think these may all be bugs.

      I've got a 4g iPod T myself. Maybe the device is just hitting the beginning of the end of its life cycle. :/

  • Mit Acid

    Well that great none of my mates have this game can you at least make some custom city's for us to get boxes from

    Also I really need a eagle to go further any chance we could have a hunting store so we can hunt for the animals or maybe a store to purchase them

  • Dan

    I have been waiting for ages for this update and I'm disappointed, every single time I play offline I have to restore my purchases to be able to use the minestry of love and the workaholic, kinda buggy but I hope they sort it as I love this game.!!
    P.s. add me on game centre, Lilhollo

  • Bobonze

    Worst update! I can't believe how buggy this is. Aside from that, not many friends on Facebook want play, and I'm not gonna ask total transfers to friend me on Facebook. What one or 2 friends that might have been interested probably bailed cuz of the bugs. Missions I were working on got totally ref*ct with, and now need this mutomium crap I didn't know was in such short supply. Can only get it when visiting other FB friends??? Well if there is one, I can't see him cuz it keeps crashing when I try.

    Totally disappointed in this update.

    There’s a free Pixel People professions guide for iPhone.

    It’s simply the best way to get all the Pixel People jobs you need. Much better than any app or online guide. And it’s free. Enjoy.
