Good day everybody, and welcome to the week! It’s time as soon as once more for our look again on the noteworthy updates of the final seven days. Some massive video games obtained updates this week, and loads of the same old suspects are right here together with them. It provides as much as a pleasant mixture of titles to take a look at whereas having a scrumptious bagel-and-bacon shake for breakfast. After all, you may hold a watch out for updates your self utilizing AppShopper or by taking part within the TouchArcade boards. This weekly abstract is simply right here to fill you in on the belongings you may need missed. Let’s go for it!
Mortal Kombat, Free
It’s apparently the sixth anniversary of this app. Time certain does fly. I bear in mind reviewing this one and never liking it fairly as a lot as Injustice or Contest of Champions, and I nonetheless kind of really feel that means. I imply, Injustice is principally lifeless, however you understand what I imply. Anyway, this replace has loads of little enhancements and a few massive additions, chief amongst them being MK11 Rain. The opposite substantial new bit is the Sorcerer’s Tower, a brand new problem that can will let you get your arms on Sorcerer’s Tower Tools. Actually, I anticipated to see some film tie-in stuff on this replace, however maybe that’s coming within the subsequent one.
Injustice 2, Free
Becoming a member of its partner-in-crime, Injustice 2 additionally obtained an enormous replace this week. No anniversary or something, I feel. The headliner right here is the brand new Legendary character Raven, who was the winner of the neighborhood request vote held final 12 months. As you’d anticipate from Raven, she makes use of her darkish energy to wreak havoc on her foes. She will be able to additionally heal herself, in case you thought she wasn’t highly effective sufficient. There’s a brand new Solo Raid within the recreation known as Creation of Chaos, a restricted time occasion the place you battle Raven and a few brainwashed minions to free them from the grip of her father, Trigon. You may accumulate and use new Chaos Artifacts to assist tilt the percentages in your favor. Add in some bug fixes and some changes to the Champions Enviornment, and that’s the lot.
Subway Surfers, Free
This replace was simply in time for Easter, however this recap of it isn’t. I imply, I assume at this time is Easter Monday so it needs to be okay. Hopefully Jared received’t fireplace me. At any charge, the youngsters are in Oxford this time. There’s a brand new Surfer named Bonnie, and a brand new Hatter outfit for Jamie. Seize the brand new Bunny Board and make your petty mischief that a lot cuter. Acquire Tokens and you will get some cool rewards within the Season Hunt, together with one thing known as Rabbot. I can sort of think about what it’s, however I doubt actuality will match my expectations right here.
Hearthstone‘s newest growth launched final week. Solid within the Barrens brings 135 new playing cards to the sport, together with the Frenzy key phrase and a slightly nebulous “extra”. Sounds promising, friends. A free Core set has replaced the Classic and Basic cards in Standard, and you’ll note that Spells in your collection now have Spell Schools added to them. Feeling like going a little old-school? You can now craft decks and compete using just the 240 cards that Hearthstone originally launched with all the way back in 2014. Not bad at all, really. I wish every game that got updated regularly over the years let you play the “original” model when you wished to. In all probability tough to do this, however it might be neat.
Toy Blast, Free
The compulsory free-to-play matching puzzle recreation replace for this week is a well-recognized rocking horse. Toy Blast has 50 new ranges, because it at all times does. I do know somebody has to hand-craft every of those phases in these puzzle recreation updates, and if I placed on my design critic hat most of them cross muster, however wow, the sheer quantity of them makes them gaming “content material” in its purest type. The story this time has one thing to do with a rhino who reads too many knight tales and begins tilting at windmills. I wager extra folks expertise that story via this recreation than by studying Don Quixote. That’s how issues are, mates.
Actual Racing 3, Free
Actual Racing 3 has an replace, and as normal meaning some new vehicles to gawk at and presumably get your arms on. In all probability not, however hope springs everlasting, eh? So right here’s the recent wheels on this replace: the Hennessey Venom F5. It’s the quickest automobile in Actual Racing 3, and you may attempt to earn it by taking part in its related occasion. Two LeMans prototypes are in right here as properly, the Audi R15 TDI and the Aston Martin DBR 1-2, and you may try to get them in a few Race Day Particular Occasions. There are two new System 1 Time Trial Competitions to problem as properly. All that and extra on this replace, although that ‘more’ is generally referring to the mundane stuff like bug fixes and efficiency enhancements.
Useless Cells, $4.99
This final week noticed the discharge of the Dangerous Seed DLC for the cellular model of Useless Cells. Plunk down your 4 bucks and also you’ll get entry to 2 brand-new areas stuffed with potential rewards and important risks. That features some new monsters that you simply’ll must learn to cope with, together with the excellently-named Yeeter. There are some new weapons that can assist you just do that, with the Rhythm n’ Bouzouki and Scythe Claw supplying you with new offensive choices. Capping all of it off is a brand new boss, the Mama Tick. She’s, uh… she’s a handful. Good luck. I actually like this DLC and this recreation, so I’ll go forward and provides this replace the coveted UMMSotW award for the week.
Gangstar Vegas, Free
Every thing has a Battle Go nowadays, it appears. Gangstar Vegas has kicked off its new Battle Go seasons, with Premium-Plus (soda crackers?) having access to enjoyable bonus challenges. In a brand new restricted time occasion, alien invaders are attacking Vegas. Get your arms on the brand new Darkish Matter melee weapon and prepare to whip some extra-terrestrial booty. Do they have booties? Find the booty, then whip it. Other than that, the primary modifications on this replace contain some new advantages related to incentivized advertisements. Woo-hoo.

Oh no, one other Easter replace! Jared’s positively going to fireplace me. Oh properly, I had a very good run. This new model of Dungeon Hunter 5 is sort of completely dedicated to Easter enjoyable, with particular occasions and festivities operating for a restricted time. You will get the Moon Rabbit Easter Armor, Weapon, and Trinket when you actually wish to go all in on the vacation. There are actually Golden Rush Tickets within the Store, and the Trial of Parts has been reworked. All that, plus the same old bug fixes and efficiency enhancements. Frankly, I’m a bit stunned that is nonetheless operating however I assume it should have a wholesome userbase even in any case these years.
The King of Fighters ALLSTAR, Free
Let’s end issues up with a take a look at the newest goings-on in The King of Fighters Allst Ar. It appears as if there’s a collaboration happening with considered one of NetMarble’s different video games, Seven Lethal Sins. Throughout this occasion, you’ll be capable of get some free collaboration fighters, Tavern Grasp Meliodas and Elizabeth. The previous is a login bonus, whereas the latter is earned by finishing Tremendous Missions. There are different characters you will get your arms on, however they won’t be free. In truth, they most likely received’t be. There are additionally some appropriately-themed dungeons to dive into, with a contemporary story and a few cool rewards. Yep, simply one other typical King of Fighters recreation, diving into dungeons and assembly Tavern Masters. Nothing is forbidden, mates.
That about wraps it up for final week’s important updates. I’m certain I’ve missed some, although, so please be at liberty to remark beneath and let everybody know when you suppose one thing needs to be talked about. As normal, main updates will doubtless get their very own information tales all through this week, and I’ll be again subsequent Monday to summarize and fill within the blanks. Have an excellent week!
