Considering a Nintendo representative said just the other day that their hit Super Mario Run [Free] wouldn't be getting any added features or updates, it's odd that we're seeing our second addition to the game in less than a week. But hey, updates are awesome, so no point in complaining. A couple of days ago, we got a few new cosmetic items to decorate our personal Mushroom Kingdoms with, but today, we're getting a whole new mode of play. Dubbed Friendly Run, it allows you to compete with your friends without paying any Rally Tickets...

Inkle's got a nice surprise right before the holidays for Sorcery players: New Game Plus that lets you start over in part one [$4.99] from a completed save in part four [appprice url="asdf"]. Yes, that's right, you can start over the entire Sorcery series, playing from the beginning with a brand new difficulty: Merciless. Tougher enemies, new items, and new secrets, including one final intriguing thing:..




Pokemon GO [Free] has been praised for its very positive effect on people's mobility, and the latest numbers out of Niantic definitely prove that. Apparently, Pokemon GO Trainers have walked more than 8.7 billion kilometers since the game's launch, which comes out to more than 200,000 trips around Earth. While walking for all those miles, Trainers have caught more than 88 billion Pokemon, which comes out to around 533 million Pokemon a day. That's some pretty crazy stats, especially considering the fact that the game wasn't available in that many countries for most of these six months...

Obsidian said that Pathfinder Adventures' [Free] Deck 6 was almost here, and it was speaking truth because the latest update just brought Spires of Xin-Shalast to us just in time for the holidays. Deck 6 brings 5 new scenarios to the game, including the conclusion to the Rise of the Runelords adventure, 4 new locations, 4 new maps, over 40 new monsters, villains, and henchmen, and, of course, tons more weapons, spells, loots, and so on. The update also brings character equipment sets where characters have alternate versions you can purchase in the store and each alt has alternate art. You can see the slight differences between the alts and the original characters in terms of stats here...

Clash of Clans [Free] players, Supercell has given to all of you an early Christmas present in the form of a pretty big Christmas update with all kinds of new levels. Barbarian King and Archer Queen can now go to Level 45 at Town Hall 11, Wizard Tower goes to Level 10, Walls will now go up to Level 12, but you only get 50 of them, and Hog Riders can now go to Level 7. We are also getting Level 7 Clan Castle and Level 6 Golems. There's also tons of balancing with Witches getting damage and HP buffs, Balloons dropping the first bomb faster, Dragons seeing their damage speed increased, and the P.E.K.K.A also has its attack increased. Finally, the Poison spell is getting a buff in terms of radius and damage...

Marvel Puzzle Quest [Free] continues to pump more and more characters into the game, and this time around it's Thanos' turn to join the game. There are two Thanos variations coming to the game, a 3-Star Thanos (Modern) and a 5-star Thanos (Classic). Both of them will arrive in the game on Thursday, December 22nd. As expected, the new characters are coming with all kinds of events both to celebrate Thanos and for the holidays. There's a new Thanos PVE event called Crash of the Mad Titan, a Thanos Versus Tournament called Behold Thanos, and more...

Good news: the long-awaited third chapter of Agent A [$2.99] is coming on Thursday, December 22nd. The point-and-click adventure game/room escape game's third episode, "Ruby's Trap," picks up where episode 2 ends, with you being trapped by the suave and actually pretty evil Ruby La Rouge. I've gotten to play this chapter ahead of its release, and it brings more of the same great puzzling fun that the original game brought. It's more of a room escape game in this chapter, as you literally have to escape the room that you are imprisoned in, triggering a variety of hidden objects and figuring out how they work in concert with one another. You'll also have to deal with math at one point, but nothing too advanced. But still, math! ..

After many years in development, Minecraft Pocket Edition [$6.99] has finally hit the 1.0 milestone, and this update is a huge one. 1.0, or the Ender Update, is bringing everything from The End - End cities, End ships, Ender Dragon - Ender Pearls, Eye of Ender, Ender Chest, Dragon head, shulkers and shulker shells, chorus fruit and popped chorus fruit, end stone and end stone brick, purplur block, pillar, slabs and stairs, dragon egg, ability to craft lingering potions in survival, igloos and polar bears, strongholds, as well as support for world templates. You can check all the new additions here...

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week before Christmas! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. It's to be expected, but wow, there are a lot of Christmas updates in this batch. Some great games got some terrific updates, so I think we've got a little something for every good girl and boy this week. 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!..

While Nintendo has been pretty open about the main reason for the online requirement of Super Mario Run [Free], the fact that it was put in to combat piracy doesn't mean that it can't be used for other things that are beneficial for the players. Many people are enjoying the Toad Rally, for one thing, and competing with the scores of your friends almost immediately after they've logged them is pretty cool. But these things could probably mostly be done without requiring an internet connection at all times. Today's fun surprise, on the other hand, would be trickier to pull off...

Good news for any fans of PewDiePie's Tuber Simulator [Free]: the game has gotten an update just in time for the holiday season that brings a bunch of yuletide goodness to your experience of becoming the top 'tuber in the world. A whole bunch of special festive items, along with a designated Holiday Item Pack, are here, along with a holiday Puggle skin! And who can't forget the Festive Sponsor Eagle? The reason for the season is to make videos for an often-hostile audience, after all...

Back in 2012, Danish developer Press Play was acquired by Microsoft and used to create exclusive games for Microsoft's fledgling Windows Phone platform. One of those games was called Tentacles, and it was about controlling a little blob creature by touching the screen to grab onto objects and pull through the level using its set of 4 wiggly tentacles. It was a really unique game that worked wonderfully on a touchscreen, and when it was apparent that its exclusivity wasn't exactly bringing in the customers to the Windows Phone platform, Microsoft opted to bring the game to iOS in October of 2012 with the title Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin [$2.99]. It was an interesting and entertaining game that we enjoyed in our original review...

Wave Light Games keeps on coming with the updates to one of our favorite strategy-RPG games around here at TouchArcade Tower, Demon's Rise 2 [$7.99]. The latest signficant update adds in two cool new features. The first, as far as gameplay content goes, is the Snakeman Rogue character. This slippery snakeman is a stealth-based assassin, using various poisons, daggers, and speed to take down foes...

Sentinels of the Multiverse [$6.99] continues to give us more heroes and more villains to play with, and this time around we are getting the first mega-expansion, Vengeance (imagine that word in an echoey, villainy voice). Vengeance brings five heroes and two environments to the game, but more importantly, it's actually bringing a whole new way to play the game. Team Villain Mode has your heroes fight it out against a team of villains, with the five villains that come in Vengeance designed to be mixed and matched into various villain teams just like you can do with heroes...

It's the news you've all been waiting for in the early hours of November 15th! That's right, at long last, the Clash Royale [Free] update bringing the Crown Duel Challenge is now available! Well, the full mode is not going to be available until Friday the 16th, but you can partake in crown duels starting right now. You'll be able to draft 4 cards from 4 random pairs into your deck, with the 4 you don't pick going to your opponent, and vice versa, to fill out your deck. Then there's the Crown Duel Tournament on the 17th that will be livestreamed...

The card game Plants Vs Zombies Heroes [Free] has been doing pretty well so far, even grabbing one of Apple's best of 2016 awards recently. In the latest update, PVZH has added a new feature that should get players logging into the game more often. The new addition is weekly in-game single and multiplayer events that let you unlock new cards to add to your collection. These new cards aren't available via any other means, so this is your chance to grab some sweet exclusives. If you win games with that week's featured Hero class, you can boost the amount of tickets you earn, which in turn you can use to grab even more cards...

I am mildly concerned for the wellbeing of the guys at Foursaken Media, as their unrelenting output of quality games and successive support for their quality releases is surely incompatible with sleep. Only last November we heard of Noblemen: 1896, the quartet's next release and arguably their most ambitious effort to date, and while December hasn't brought with it any new games, Foursaken Media have today released a major update in support of one of their most beloved titles. Block Fortress [$1.99] achieved significant commercial and critical success upon its release in 2013 for its unique amalgamation of Minecraft-esque building with tower defense gameplay, and although it hasn't received any significant content updates since May 2015, a huge new Holidays-themed patch has launched today with a variety of new weapons, equipment and levels, but also some more mechanical changes that have been popularly requested by fans over the years...

It’s been a long time coming, but the folks at Super Evil Megacorp have finally launched Version 2.0 of their mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free]. While each update up until this point has typically included some welcome additions and a host of new characters, this update looks to be the biggest one yet. For starters, some significant changes have been made to the game’s guild structure. Now, players can easily find and join new guilds, which is a welcome change. In addition, guild rewards will be doled out throughout a season instead of at the end. Players can also now earn guild rep in solo matches. Finally, guild admin tools are finally here so leaders can transfer ownership, officers can be named with privileges and so on...

Apart from being a really creative, awesome RPG, the biggest thing that struck me about the original Siralim [Free] was just how frequently and magnificently it was updated. Everything from balance adjustments to new graphics to entirely new systems was added to the game after its release, and for quite some time, you could be confident that there would always be something new when you fired up Siralim. The sequel, Siralim 2 [$4.99], hasn't seen quite as frantic a schedule when it comes to updates. It appears that the developer is going for bigger, less frequent updates instead, which is fine by me. The latest one has just hit and it's a whopper...

'Dashy Crashy Turbo' Needs Beta Testers

Dashy Crashy [Free] by Dumpling Design is getting a major new update that is practically a sequel to the original. Dashy Crashy Turbo will bring a ton of new vehicles, Apple TV support, and "maths solving?" I'm not 100% sure what math is going to have to do with Dashy Crashy Turbo, but maybe you can find out. Dumpling needs beta testers for this major update to the game, and you can sign up in the game's thread in the Upcoming Games Forum...
