Fans of Skyrim, it's time to revisit those Dragon Shouts and famous heroes, but this time in Bethesda's Elder Scrolls: Legends [Free]. The Heroes of Skyrim expansion, which has just gone live, introduces 154 new cards to the game and allows you to enjoy all the famous locations and people from Skyrim. You'll get to see allies like Aela the Huntress, J'Zargo, and Delphine, as well as Dragons like Alduin and Paarthurnax. The update has added over a dozen new Daily Quests, which include goals relating to Companions and the College of Winterhold. Some of the quests will give you new Skyrim packs as rewards...

Krosmaga [Free], the card game that lets you play as a god, has just received its first expansion called Necros & Paladirs. This new expansion adds a ninth god to the game, Enutrof, and more than 150 cards. As you can see from the very cute trailer below, the new expansion is about provoking and awaking an ancient evil that brings about Necros. The 9th god loves to amass precious things, and his disciples are great at using shovels and picks and looking for buried treasures. There are disciples that can fuse with their favorite animals, which in terms of gameplay allows them to combine the strengths of two Minions. There are also actions like Prism Sacrifice, which allows players to exchange prisms for spells or additional abilities...




It seems like the first rule of Crash Club [Free] is that you must talk about Crash Club as much as you can, as the popularity of Prettygreat's latest game after a host of Apple-backed promotions has been impressive. While a lot of the excitement around Crash Club is owing to its finely tuned gameplay and ridiculously varied customisation options, one reason why the game has kept momentum is because of its impressive post-launch support through successive content updates. One such addition came shortly after launch, and yesterday the Version 1.2 of Crash Club finally reached the App Store, with a whole number of shiny extra vehicles, a new crash site to brawl in, and also a boldly named Galaxy Gun that has the ability to shoot up to three players at once...

Clash of Clans [Free] just got more content in the Builder Hall 6 update, which has just gone live. The biggest additions are the two new units, the Night Witch and the Roaster. The Night Witch, which you get when you upgrade your Builder Barracks to Level 8, does ranged attacks that hit both air and ground units, spawns bats that attack both ground and air units, and will spawn into a swarm of bats once it receives fatal damage. The Roaster is a great defense weapon against the Night Witch and shoots flames up to 7 tiles away in burst fire of 15 shots. At Level 6, it does 16 damage per shot, hits air and ground units, and does splash damage...

So many modern games carry the 'sandbox' moniker without truly being endless havens of experimentation like the genre label suggests. Yes, Horizon Zero Dawn, I don't remember any invisible walls in any hypothetical sandboxes I played in as a child! That being said, The Sandbox Evolution [Free] has come the closest to the anything-goes chaos that I desire from games that put an emphasis on experimentation, and an upcoming update to Pixowl's mobile phenomenon looks to add even more mayhem to the app. Suitably titled the 'Disasters 2' update, the developers have added in eight natural disasters to complement the Lightning, Earthquake, Tornado and Nuke options that are already present in the game, and should be a fun and cathartic way of bringing about destruction to your world's inhabitants when it releases on June 28th...

Best iPhone Game Updates: 'Pokemon Go', 'Burrito Bison: Launcha Libre', 'Vainglory', 'TypeShift', and More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the most noteworthy updates of the last seven days. Some awesome games got 64-bit compatibility in the last week! But besides that, some other games got some pretty cool content updates, too. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper or by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly summary is just here to fill in the things you might have missed. Let's dig in!..

Ultimate General: Gettysburg [$3.99] is one of the prettiest real-time strategy games on any platform, and two years after landing on iPads, it has finally marched onto your iPhones after the latest update. The game was originally released on PCs, and even though the iOS version lost some great features—multiplayer and dynamic campaign—it is still a great game. Ultimate General has a 10-mission campaign that you can play either as the North or the South, great touch controls that let you move your armies around easily, and pretty strong AI that will give you plenty of challenge...

Last week we detailed a massive new update that's heading to Rocketcat and Madgarden's sublime Death Road to Canada [$9.99], an update they've dubbed the COCCYX update. It's set to add a fancy new currency called Zombo Points which you'll need to earn through actually playing the game (no IAP!) and can spend on buying new perks and abilities. It pretty much replaces the current perk progression system with something that's a bit more clear and similar to progression systems in other games. There are also lots of new characters being added in this update, and that's the focus of today's news piece as the developers have just released a new video showing some of those new characters in action...

The App Store is like an awful b-list zombie movie at the moment, with classic games fading left, right and center at the hands of Apple's relentless 32-bit Appocalypse. While a number of titles have since been updated to 64-bit to stay around when iOS 11 rolls into town, the very nature of this new requirement for applications means a number of true classics will soon suddenly disappear, which is disappointing for the platform as a whole. Thankfully, one such cult iOS hit has today confirmed its continued presence on the App Store. As we first reported last week, Rocketcat Games and Madgarden's Punch Quest [Free] has been updated to bring it into compliance with Apple's 64-bit regulations, and the developers have also strongly hinted at later successive updates that could add features such as Apple TV support...

Super Evil Megacorp’s mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free], has launched its latest update and with it comes some significant quality of life upgrades. In addition to a new hero and the requisite new skins Version 2.6 also introduces a significant revamp to its in-game communication system...

Sentinels of the Multiverse [$6.99] players were looking forward to getting the 2.5 update, which is coming today, but the developers just posted a note telling everyone not to update to 2.5 until further notice. Apparently, there's an issue with restoring purchases on the app, so if you do download the 2.5 update, you won't be able to restore all your previous DLC and will only be able to play the core game. It looks like the problem is on Apple's side, so there's nothing the developers can do about it...

This War of Mine [$14.99], or as I like to call it the depression simulator, is a fantastic game that has continued expanding ever since it released two years ago. After the update that added playable children to the mix—because, you know, the game needed even higher stakes—today the game received the 1.5 Anniversary Edition update in celebration of two years since the game's global release. This new free DLC brings new characters to the game, new locations to explore, and—most importantly—a new ending that leads to a different outcome to the game. Who knows, maybe this time around you'll manage to bring peace on earth...

Pokemon GO [Free] players, get ready because the huge update that's going to overhaul big parts of the game is rolling out now for both Android and iOS. If you haven't read our story yesterday, this new Pokemon GO update will add the new motivation system to Gyms as well as add a new Gym Badge feature and in-app and push notifications for Gyms. The game is also getting Raid Battles, a cooperative experience that should be a great way to play the game this summer. The update is also adding four new items that you can only get by completing Raid Battles and adding a Raids tab to the Nearby screen...

Clash of Clans [Free] is getting ready to introduce June's balancing update to the game, and today the developers announced the new defensive and offensive content that will be added to the game. Supercell wanted to reassure players that although it's adding features to the Builder Base, it's not forgetting the Town Hall, and the June balancing update will actually be focused more on Town Hall than the Builder Base. We are getting new Cannon Level 15 (TH11), with Cannon Levels 10-14 upgrade time or cost being discounted. We are also getting Archer Tower Level 15 (TH11), with Archer Tower levels 9-14 upgrade time or cost also discounted. And we are getting Inferno Tower Level 5 (TH11), with Inferno Tower levels 2-4 upgrade time or cost discounted, Inferno Tower level 4 multi-mode damage increased, and Inferno Tower single-mode 1st stage damage changed to match multi-mode damage...

Best iPhone Game Updates: 'Footy Golf', 'Candy Crush Saga', 'Hidden Folks', 'The Escapists', 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. In addition to a bunch of 64-bit updates, regular updates keep on rolling in at a steady rate. I've found some of the most interesting ones for you to take a look at as you enjoy your morning tankard of ale. 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. Let's dig in!..

If you've been enjoying the Advance Wars-like Super Senso [Free], you'll be glad to know that Update 1.8, which has just gone live, adds more content to the game. The new update adds more Challenges to the game, since they appear to be fan-favorites. Challenges are one-turn puzzles and can be quite the brain teasers. There are also 3 new advanced tutorials that should help new players get the hang of the game faster. More interestingly, we are getting two new units: Med-Bot and Saboteur. Med-Bots have weak attacks but heal adjacent allied units at the start of both yours and the opponent's turn. Saboteurs are fast infantry units with the ability to evade the first instance of damage each turn...

Uppercut Games last grace mobile with the interesting climbing adventure game Submerged [$4.99] last year, but they were first known on mobile for doing the Epoch [$0.99] and Epoch 2 [$0.99], cover-based shooters featuring robots. Lots and lots and lots of robots. The games were unfortunately set to be lost to the 32-bit appocalypse when iOS 11 hits and removes support for 32-bit apps. However, that venomous fate has been avoided as Uppercut has gone in and updated the two robot shooters for 64-bit support. Huzzah!..

Rocketcat and Madgarden's Death Road to Canada [$9.99] has been one of the biggest releases of the year, and is so gosh darn good that there's no doubt in my mind it will be very high up on the list of games we'll be discussing for our Game of the Year and Best Games of 2017 coverage in December. That said, the initial release was already pretty fantastic but the developers have been continuously adding new stuff through updates since the game's release back in March, making for an even better experience. Their forthcoming update, dubbed the "COCCYX" update, is by far the biggest yet though, so if you can't get enough of trying to make your way to Canada to evade the zombie apocalypse (and probably dying before you get there most of the time) then you're going to want to check out part 1 and part 2 of the huge list of update details that Kepa has put together in our forums...

Hidden Folks [$3.99] is one of the most charming games on the App Store, especially on a big screen (I'm loving it on my 12.9 Pro), and I'm always glad to have more areas to explore and more secrets to uncover. If you're like me, you'll be glad to hear that Hidden Folks got the Factory Area update today that adds 3 new areas to the game. If you haven't been following the developer blogs, the Factory update is the most complicated area ever added to the game with almost 30 targets, dozens of new interactions, hundreds of new sounds, and thousands of tiny stories (per the developers). If you like the game, I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun with the new update...

There are few games that bring a smile to my face like Dumpling Design's Dashy Crashy [Free]. This lane-based avoidance game (calling it just a runner doesn't quite do it justice) captured the soul of some of the loudest, most attention-grabbing arcade games from the '90s while utilizing a really neat risk/reward system that dared you to go as fast as possible while avoiding crashing. Along with colorful, cheery graphics and tons of achievements and vehicles to unlock, there was plenty to love in Dashy Crashy in our original review. And while Dashy Crashy was a great–although simple–high score chaser, Dumpling had some major plans for the title and over the next year worked on a massive version 2.0 update which they dubbed Dashy Crashy Turbo. The update hit in early March and added special abilities to the many vehicles in the game, a sweet progression system that had you upgrading your driver's license by completing achievements, a way better system for unlocking cars, 25 brand new cars, and tons more. It was basically a sequel but delivered as a free update to the original game, which was pretty darn cool...
