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...

As was to be expected, Michael Bay's Transformers: The Last Knight, whose trailer looks like five movies combined into one, is paying a visit to Transformers: Forged to Fight [Free] in an update that's gone live today. This new update brings backgrounds inspired from various scenes from the upcoming movie. And we are also getting Autobot Drift, the samurai bot with questionable loyalties, as a new playable character. You can find more about his story in the A Question of Loyalty event. Megatron is also back as the new boss of Alliance Missions...

I'm always keen to hear about some of my most treasured iOS games being updated to avoid the 32-bit Appocalypse that is approaching with the release of iOS 11, and amidst the business that is WWDC last week news of one such update just about slipped by me. Gesundheit! [$2.99 / $2.99 (HD)], the adorably grotesque stealth puzzler collaboration from Australian developer Revolutionary Concepts and artist Matt Hammill, originally released way back in July of 2011 and went on to win all sorts of fancy awards from all over the place, including our own glowing 5 star review. The game was well-maintained in the couple years following its release but hasn't seen any sort of update since early 2013. That changed last week with the release of a new update adding 64-bit support, higher resolution assets for larger iOS devices, and fixes for missing sound effects and music. If this is the first you've heard of Gesundheit! then definitely check out the trailer...

If you like horror movies from the 80s, with all the gory silliness and iconic walking killing machines, then you should be playing Slayaway Camp [$2.99], a game that evokes all those horror movies while still delivering a great sliding puzzle game. Today, the game received Update 1.3, and it's a fun one. The Super Summer Slasher update adds "deleted scenes," challenge levels that were deemed too tricky or too absurd to include in the game. They are optional and very hardcore, and each of them comes with behind-the-scenes commentary about the making of the game. And we are also getting iMessage Stickers, because nothing says I love you like voxel killers. The update also adds killer-specific camera filters, 3 new mystery killers, and much more...

The CCG Shadowverse [Free] continues to be quite popular, and its developers continue adding content at a steady pace. This time around, we are getting a new expansion called Wonderland Dreams, and as you can see in the trailer below, it's all about fables and fairytales, with Alice leading the way and many others following suit. The expansion adds 104 new story-inspired cards, including cool Neutral deckbuilding options. The developers claim that the expansion will let you make new types of decks that should make the game feel fresh again. As is always the case, it remains to be seen whether those decks will be strong enough to stick around...

Clash Royale 1.9 [Free] update has just been released, and it brings a ton of new features and cards to the game. First of all, we are getting four new cards: Mega Knight, Cannon Cart, Flying Machine, and Skeleton Barrel. Each of the cards will release with its own Special Challenge as has been the case recently. And we'll be getting new Challenges: Sudden Death, Ramp Up, and Triple Elixir. 1.9 also brings more deck slots at Arena 8, the ability to copy decks from TV Royale and shared replays, and Clans will now unlock at Level 1—although card requests still unlock at Level 3...

Best iPhone Game Updates: 'Fire Emblem Heroes', 'Galaga Wars', 'Pokemon: Magikarp Jump', 'Dan the Man', 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. I'm noticing a couple of trends lately. One, there are tons of 64-bit updates coming in. Two, that work must be keeping people busy because we're seeing very little else. I've done my best to find some goodies this week anyway. 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!..

One of the most original titles of 2017 is Hidden Folks [$3.99] by Adriaan de Jongh and Sylvain Tegroeg. And the party isn't stopping any time soon – the new Factory update is set to hit iOS and Steam this week on June 15th. These new levels take things to a whole new level. 30 targets in total, with a ton of new interactions, sounds, and little folks with their own little stories have been added into this free update for the game. Alongside the new Factory levels, the developers are doing some behind-the-scenes posts on the game, showing how Hidden Folks was made. In particular, the new levels start with drawings on paper that get scanned into a computer:..

It feels like it was only yesterday that Pokemon GO [Free] took over both popular culture and TouchArcade, however somehow the first anniversary of Niantic's runaway augmented reality hit is rapidly approaching. The first few weeks of Pokemon GO fever may have been defined by the frequent server issues and in-game glitches, however an abundance of improvements, events and content updates since (including the addition of most of the Generation 2 creatures) has gone some way towards becoming the experience that many expected from that stunning reveal trailer from 2015. To celebrate such an occasion, Niantic are hosting numerous in-game and real life events that aim not only to help the most ardent of trainers finally catch 'em all, but also to bring Pokemon GO players together for some exciting birthday festivities around the world...

You know, I really have to hand it to Nintendo and DeNA. They've been listening carefully to the players of Fire Emblem Heroes [Free] and have worked diligently and quickly to try to address their requests. Pokemon Go [Free] players could only dream of support like this. Well, anyway, the latest version of Fire Emblem Heroes has hit, and it has some really neat stuff in it. The Tempest Trials are a new type of battle that tries to incorporate the series trademark permadeath feature in a rather novel way. A new Xenologue pushes the story forward a little more. There are lots of other nice additions to improve your playing experience, too...

With the 32-bit Appocalypse soon upon us with iOS 11 removing support for 32-bit apps, it's worth keeping an eye out right now for any classic apps that need an update to 64-bit. Terry Cavanagh has updated three of his titles to 64-bit: the classic gravity-flipping platformer VVVVVV [$2.99], its high-score spinoff Super Gravitron [Free], and Don't Look Back [Free]. Don't worry, Super Hexagon [$2.99] is all good to go for the bold 64-bit future...

Best iPhone Game Updates: 'Minecraft', 'Stickman Skate Battle', 'King Rabbit', 'RayForce', 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. Lots of good stuff to pick from, but I think I've found a bag of excellent updates we can mostly agree on. 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!..

I'm not entirely sure why, but water park levels in seemingly unrelated video games have some unique intrinsic novelty for me personally. Maybe because they're less abundant and not as cliche as their regular theme park counterparts; maybe because they're more creative and less mundane than something such as an airport or shopping mall. Either way, what I'm trying to say is I love a good water park map, and therefore the most recent update or Crash of Cars [Free] is totally up my street (or up my slide, if you will). With a new map featuring the aforementioned aquatic wonderland, as well as multiple new vehicles to eliminate your automotive enemies with, there's a lot to enjoy in this latest update, which is available to download for any ardent Crash of Cars fans today...

We wrote a few weeks back that Hearthstone [Free] was going to get some new features, and those new features have just been added in the latest update. The first big feature is Deck Importing. You can now copy and import decklists from the internet or even from your own decklist library, a feature that should make our lives so much easier and make switching out decks faster. The client will know when a valid decklist is copied and will ask you whether you want to use it when creating a new deck. In theory, at least. The other big feature is Quest with friends, the ability to complete most quests during Friendly Challenges, which wasn't allowed before...

It's Wonder Woman time in pretty much everything DC on the App Store, so you shouldn't be surprised that Wonder Woman theatrical content is now available in the DC Legends [Free]  F2P strategy RPG. The new update has added Wonder Woman: Defender of Justice, a movie version of the famous superhero based on Gal Gadot. There will also be all kinds of Wonder Woman-related events throughout June, so plenty of opportunities for you to grab all that content. Specifically, there will be a 9-Day Hero Challenge where you will travel to Wonder Woman's Island paradise and battle in the new Gates of Tartarus environment to earn Wonder Woman: Defender of Justice fragments...
