Maybe Apple has finally awoken from its holiday hibernation, maybe not. But either way, yesterday seemed to be one of those “update release days” as I’ve received almost 32 updates within a matter of minutes. While I haven’t exactly updated every single game, here’s a few that I thought were pretty notable.
Jet Car Stunts: Huge, huge, HUGE issue I had with this game was the difficulty. Blah, blah, blah, best game on the iPhone? Whatever. But with the addition of a tutorial and a casual mode, I can only hope the game will be significantly easier. Of course, if it isn’t, I expect the less-skilled to riot and cause some havoc to the developers, forcing yet another update. Either way, I’m glad the game has finally been made a little bit easier.
Speed Forge Extreme: Major problem I had with this game was engine noises. Seems like there were engine noises all along; they just weren’t loud enough above the music. Fortunately, the developers of Speed Forge Extreme have tweaked their vehicles to make the engines sound louder, along with the ability to listen to iPod music as an added bonus. The version 1.1 update also has added a first-person perspective, one that I wasn’t really expecting, but still awesome nonetheless.
Hook Champ: Being our October Game of the Month, Hook Champ has always been one of our favorites. The new update adds more content yet again, with Hookbot as a new character along with a Mega Hook, 24 new hats, 5th rocketjump fuel tank, and some new Christmasy looks for Jake, Gunny, and Hookbot. All in all, it’s a good update for those looking for some new clothes to fashion up your characters.
Fieldrunners: One of the first TD games in the App Store, Fieldrunners has always been a classic. It has been updated to feature the new OpenFeint Gold Edition. And now before you start foaming at the mouth, it’s basically OpenFeint with a new interface. There’s nothing special about it, no special features, just a new look. While it’s a little disappointing, it’s still wonderful to see some added achievements. Along with OpenFeint Gold, there are two new maps available for DLC, each map costing $0.99 each.
iBlast Moki: It’s one of the best puzzle games on the App Store, and it only seems to be getting better. The new version 1.2 update updates the graphics, adds 15 new levels, a new Doodleworld, an all new level editor design, and some other minor fixes. It’s a noteworthy update, that again, costs you nothing but a few minutes of your time. If you haven’t picked up this game yet, I suggest you to right now before it’s too late and the world comes to an end.
SpringFling: It’s like Doodle Jump, yet prettier, quirkier, and just a little bit different to justify the buy. The new update adds 9 new clothing pieces for your spring along with a new powerup, giving you the ability to fly up through the level. If you’re a fan of Doodle Jump, I suggest you pick this one up as well, being the only, truly worthy alternative
