In fact, you possibly can maintain an eye fixed 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 stuff you may need missed. Let’s go for it!
Mortal Kombat, Free
It’s apparently the sixth anniversary of this app. Time positive 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 method. I imply, Injustice is principally lifeless, however you recognize 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 may mean you can get your arms on Sorcerer’s Tower Tools. Truthfully, 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 received a giant 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’ll count on from Raven, she makes use of her darkish energy to wreak havoc on her foes. She will additionally heal herself, in case you thought she wasn’t highly effective sufficient. There’s a brand new Solo Raid within the sport known as Introduction 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.

Subway Surfers, Free
This replace was simply in time for Easter, however this recap of it isn’t. I imply, I suppose right now is Easter Monday so it must be okay. Hopefully Jared gained’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. Accumulate 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. Cast within the Barrens brings 135 new playing cards to the sport, together with the Frenzy key phrase and a somewhat nebulous “extra”. Sounds promising, buddies. A free Core set has changed the Traditional and Primary playing cards in Normal, and also you’ll word that Spells in your assortment now have Spell Faculties added to them. Feeling like going just a little old-school? Now you can craft decks and compete utilizing simply the 240 playing cards that Hearthstone initially launched with all the way in which again in 2014. Not unhealthy in any respect, actually. I want each sport that received up to date often over time allow you to play the “authentic” model in case you needed to. In all probability tough to try this, however it will be neat.
Toy Blast, Free
The compulsory free-to-play matching puzzle sport replace for this week is a well-recognized rocking horse. Toy Blast has 50 new ranges, because it all the time does. I do know somebody has to hand-craft every of those levels in these puzzle sport updates, and if I placed on my design critic hat most of them go 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 guess extra individuals expertise that story by this sport than by studying Don Quixote. That’s how issues are, buddies.
Actual Racing 3, Free
Actual Racing 3 has an replace, and as normal meaning some new automobiles to gawk at and presumably get your arms on. In all probability not, however hope springs everlasting, eh? So right here’s the new wheels on this replace: the Hennessey Venom F5. It’s the quickest automotive in Actual Racing 3, and you may attempt to earn it by enjoying 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 Formulation 1 Time Trial Competitions to problem as properly. All that and extra on this replace, although that ‘extra’ is usually referring to the mundane stuff like bug fixes and efficiency enhancements.
Lifeless Cells, $4.99
This final week noticed the discharge of the Unhealthy Seed DLC for the cell model of Lifeless Cells. Plunk down your 4 bucks and also you’ll get entry to 2 brand-new areas filled with potential rewards and vital risks. That features some new monsters that you just’ll need to discover ways to cope with, together with the excellently-named Yeeter. There are some new weapons that can assist you do exactly 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 sport, so I’ll go forward and provides this replace the coveted UMMSotW award for the week.
Gangstar Vegas, Free
The whole lot has a Battle Go today, it appears. Gangstar Vegas has kicked off its new Battle Go seasons, with Premium-Plus (soda crackers?) having access to enjoyable bonus challenges.

This new model of Dungeon Hunter 5 is sort of completely dedicated to Easter enjoyable, with particular occasions and festivities working for a restricted time. You may get the Moon Rabbit Easter Armor, Weapon, and Trinket in case you actually wish to go all in on the vacation. There at the moment are Golden Rush Tickets within the Store, and the Trial of Components has been reworked. All that, plus the standard bug fixes and efficiency enhancements. Frankly, I’m a bit shocked that is nonetheless working however I suppose 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 most recent goings-on in The King of Fighters Allst Ar. It appears as if there’s a collaboration happening with one in every of NetMarble’s different video games, Seven Lethal Sins. Throughout this occasion, you’ll be capable to get some free collaboration fighters, Tavern Grasp Meliodas and Elizabeth.

In actual fact, they in all probability gained’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 sport, diving into dungeons and assembly Tavern Masters. Nothing is forbidden, buddies.
That about wraps it up for final week’s vital updates. I’m positive I’ve missed some, although, so please be at liberty to remark under and let everybody know in case you assume one thing must 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 awesome week!
