Lumines Puzzle and Music [$2.99] has just gotten its DLC update adding in some cool new content for the game. Rhythm gaming classing Rez has a new set of tracks that you can buy to play in the game. That's right, two of the best rhythm games of the 2000s have met at last, and the unique design of Rez makes for a fresh look for Lumines. As well, there's an album pack for band Sekai no Owari, a Japanese pop group that's set to go international with an English-language album in the works...

Update Mondays: 'Pewdiepie's Tuber Simulator', 'Invisible, Inc.', 'Exiled Kingdoms', 'Nekosan', and More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. It's quite an interesting mix this week, with some games we rarely see stepping up alongside the usual suspects. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper Social [Free], the watchlist in the TouchArcade App [Free], or by participating in the TouchArcade forums, but this weekly summary is here to fill in the things you might have missed.

2K Games and Cat Daddy have been teasing out some details for Season 3 of WWE SuperCard [Free], but at last the game's major update is now available on iOS and Android. The big addition to the game is the first real-time gameplay mode against other opponents with the Royal Rumble mode. It's a 15-on-15 brawl against an online opponent to try and have the last card standing. ..

1Button literally released Nekosan [Free] two weeks ago, but they're already hard at work on bringing more content to the game. World B of the game is now available, bringing forth some new challenges. Portals, mouse holes, and more! Oh my! Good luck taking on all of that. Thankfully, you have a couple of new characters as rewards for those fish you collect: Ginette the Frong and François the Chicken...

As you can tell from our earlier story on the latest Disney game, November is Moana month since we are a week away from the animated film hitting the movie theaters. And, of course, Disney Crossy Road [Free] wasn't going to be left out of the Moana party. In the latest update, Disney is bringing over the world of Lalotai where you can explore the Realm of Monsters with, of course, new figurines likes Moana herself, Maui, Pua, Heihei, and many more. Surviving won't be that easy since you'll have to dodge all kinds of weird monsters including eight-eyed bats and more. There are even water geysers that might return you back to the world of those puny humans...

If you want to wish anyone Merry Christmas but still remind them how close we are to the world coming to an end, you can use the new Fallout Shelter [Free] seasonal stickers added today with update 1.9. There are now new Holiday Stickers, which are admittedly quite charming though with an undertone of dread if the recipient knows what the game is all about. Update 1.9 has added more than just stickers. We are also getting new quests that will have your cabin-crazy dwellers traveling to some caves. And knowing the game, what could go wrong in a bunch of caves, right?..

Skandivania Games' Feral Fury [$3.99] has, in the weeks since its release, gotten some tweaks that have been requested by players, such as improved brightness settings. The latest update adds in a requested new mode and improved controls. Endless mode is just that, challenging you to play the game for as long as you can, with new levels constantly appearing over time. This is the same harder difficulty of the Daily mode, where you have less health than when you start a new game now, and deal with harder enemies from the outset. You'll be competing for high scores with other players. And by "other players" I mean the crazy people on the forums who said "I like Feral Fury, but I am so good at it that it just ends too soon. I wish it didn't have to end." So, good luck on those leaderboards, folks...

When Lumines Puzzle & Music [$2.99] launched in September, we were big fans - the rhythm-centric block puzzler was a fitting tribute to the original PSP game that won over so many gamers back in 2004, while still being relevant in 2016 with new modern developments that the series had picked up over its existence. If there was one flaw to Lumines Puzzle & Music, however, it'd be that with only a limited number of game modes and music tracks, there wasn't a whole lot to entice players who had played through all the options that the latest title had to offer. However, even more content is set to roll out for Lumines Puzzle & Music over the next week - today, an album pack from the hit Japanese pop band Sekai no Owari has been made available to download, and on 21 November a special set of tracks from the psychedelic cult rail shooter Rez is also to be rolled out for the mobile version of Lumines...

RareSloth has announced the latest update for King Rabbit [Free] is releasing this Thursday, November 17th. The Winter Expansion – which is technically releasing in the fall – features 64 new levels, all featuring a winter theme. You'll have to deal with icy floors and walls, pistons, new ice and poison crowns, a heart turret, and more. Oh, and there's now an evil snowman to deal with, along with fire, poison, and ice enemy variations...

While the vast array of smartphone options gives you a lot of choice on what millimetre-thick piece of plastic and glass you decide will dominate your life, it does lead to a lot of fragmentation for mobile gamers. With so many options which generally boil down to the Amazon family of devices, Android alternatives and Apple's beautiful walled garden, it's sometimes frustrating to find that you can't play with your friends who opted for another operating system. Thankfully, the developers of Riptide GP: Renegade [$2.99] have recently updated their flagship racing title with cross-platform online play on mobile, with the potential to later add console and PC players to the action, as well as a whole host of refinements that further improve the multiplayer elements to Renegade that we loved in our review back in August...

Update Mondays: 'A Noble Circle', 'Pokemon GO', 'Cookie Jam', 'Star Traders 4X Empires', and More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. Let's just go ahead and lose ourselves in some nifty updates this week, okay friends? There's lots of good stuff to check out, no matter what your tastes. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper Social [Free], the watchlist in the TouchArcade App [Free], or by participating in the TouchArcade forums, but this weekly summary is here to fill in the things you might have missed.

'WWE SuperCard' Season 3 Getting Royal Rumble Mode

2K Games and Cat Daddy have some major plans in place for WWE SuperCard [Free] season 3 when it rolls out soon. Namely, they're bringing a Royal Rumble mode to the game. Players will take on an opponent in a 15-on-15 card battle. Or a "slam-a-ganza" as they're calling it. Each round will have you playing a card to battle. If you own the ring at the time, you sacrifice a card to pick the match type, and if they don't pick up a match type that gives them the advantage, then you hold the ring. It's a showdown for points, as holding the ring for a full round earns you a point, and having the last card standing gives you 3 points. Do note that ring holder attributes weaken each round you hold them. It should lead to an interesting showdown...

Butterscotch Shenanigans has announced a big new update for Crashlands [$4.99] that's in the works. The Juicemancy Update will bring a new game system into play, called Juicemancy, appropriately enough. You can channel "craptons of energy" into your equipment, letting you modify your equipment upgrade, manipulate, and reroll stats on equipment. One way that this could be used is to make specialized weapons, for example. You'll have to complete a Bawg quest-chain to learn Juicemancy, though...

Minecraft: Pocket Edition [$6.99] has been a phenomenal hit on the App Store, and definitely a deserved success - with so many updates for the game since its initial 2014 launch, Mojang have changed a bare-bones port into a fully fledged and content rich experience that can stand tall with its console counterparts. The trend of continued support from the developers shows no signs of stopping, and today they have announced the big 1.0 update for Minecraft, which has some seriously major additions that will likely delight fans of the game, such as The End, and its notorious inhabitant The Ender Dragon...

Obsidian continues to give us more Pathfinder Adventures [Free] content, and this time around we are getting Deck 5. Update 1.1.5, which should be dropping soon, is adding Sings of the Saviors to the game, and it looks great. This new deck adds 5 new scenarios, 3 new locations, new maps, new loot, new legendary rewards, and new mechanics to the game, like Rimeskull with the Sihedron Circle Location. As the update blog points out, this is a great new mechanic that should entertain players quite a bit. One of the scenarios includes a huge dragon, Arkrhyst, that hits everyone with a breath weapon even before combat begins. There's also a scenario that comes with three villains, and they look fun to take on. Apparently, each time you defeat one of those villains, the others get more difficult to beat...

Square Enix Montreal is at work on a new update to Deus Ex Go [$1.99] called the Puzzle Maker update. While the studio isn't revealing a lot of details beyond that, what the first screenshot they have shows is some options that will let players make their own levels for the third game in the Go puzzle series. Making and sharing puzzles would be a good way to give this entry some originality compared to the other 2 games, for sure...

It’s that time again, the folks over at Super Evil Megacorp have released another significant update to their mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free]. While the new character (which offers a pretty interesting twist on debilitating gameplay) and multitudes of new skins are always nice, it’s the additions to its iOS broadcasting support that have me interested...

This is actually a bit of news I meant to get to last week and didn't have time, but seeing as how unique a game Calculords [Free] is and how log it's been since its last content update, I felt like it was still worth talking about. First off, Calculords is a card-based strategy game which launched back in February of 2014. It had you building up a deck of units and battling against a colorful cast of AI opponents in its campaign, placing your units among 3 lanes on the playfield to battle head to head against your opponents' units. It sounds a bit standard as far as card-battlers go, but what set Calculords apart was its use of math. Yes, math! It's fun! ..

Big Huge Games and Nexon M's DomiNations [Free] keeps on rolling through eras of history. After the World War content from the previous major update, now DomiNations enters the Atomic Age. Representing the time after World War II, several new units and buildings are now available. The units include the helicopter and armored personnel carrier, which could prove to have a major impact on combat in the game. The helicopter is weak to fire from defending troops, but can wreak havoc on defensive buildings as it has range outside of many defenses. Meanwhile, the APC deploys heavy infantry every few seconds and has a machine gun for covering fire...

Pokemon GO [Free] continues to add more content to the game in an attempt to keep drawing in more players, hold on to the players it already has, and bring back those original players who feel they have run out of things to do in the game. This latest update has added the new Daily Bonuses feature, which is specifically designed to keep people coming back to the game daily and weekly. Catching a Pokemon will give you 500 XP and 600 Stardust, with the 7-day reward being 2000 XP and 2,400 Stardust. Visiting a PokeStop and spinning that Photo Disc will get you 500 XP and a number of other items, and if you do that for seven days in a row, you'll get 2,000 XP and, well, even more additional items...
