Hello everyone and welcome to the week! It’s time again for our review of the notable updates over the past seven days. We’re getting some really big updates to a number of games this week, especially if you’re an Apple Arcade subscriber. However, there are some other cool updates out there even if you don’t. I’ve selected my favorites so you can check them out as you start your week. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly round-up is just here to educate you about the things you may have missed. Here we go!
Dan the man, Free Apparently, Jetpack joyride is ten years old. Impressive! Time surely goes by quickly. Anyway how Dan the man comes from many of the same people behind this game, the developers decided to celebrate this milestone with something cool Jetpack joyride-related content. There are new levels and missions based on the game, with the inevitable journey to the facilities of legitimate research. Robo Barry, Professor Brains, the legitimate researchers are available as new skins, and of course there are also some new emotes and event symbols.
Jetpack joyride, Free Well if that’s what’s going on in Dan the man, can’t wait to see what Jetpack joyride makes for your own anniversary! It is … it has one Fruit ninja Event? What kind of half-brick matryoshka doll am I getting myself into? Well, that’s it, I suppose. Participate in this limited-time event to get something Fruit ninja– Themed treats like a fruit jetpack and a sensei costume. Sure, that’s fine.
PAC-MAN, Free I have a buddy named Gray who’s talking about it Pac-Man the whole time. It seems to be in his head all the time. One of many who can’t get this forty year old franchise out of their heads. While this particular app likes to do events and crossovers, this particular update focuses on the core experience. It includes 30 new story mode levels, some arcade machine upgrades, and a host of bug fixes and performance improvements. More Pac-Manwhich my buddy will surely be interested in. Not bad.
GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, For free
GWENT is a title I’ll never fully get used to. It sounds like someone is trying to say that a person named Gwen has left, but in a clever way. How, oh Gwen? Yes you GWENT this way. Ha. But no, this is The Witcher’s pretty good card game, and like any length card game, it relies on expansions to keep people interested. Geralt goes to the local dealer to buy some booster packs. In any case, this update is almost exclusively dedicated to the new expansion, Harvest of grief. There are new cards and ornaments to check out so I recommend this if you have any questions. .
Mortal Kombat, For free
Mortal Kombat only gets updates every now and then, but this last week has been one of them every now and then. That was an uncomfortable sentence, sorry. Let’s see what this update has to offer, right? The main thing seems to be the inclusion of a new character that has been hotly requested by the community: MK11 Nightwolf. Use his spirit animals to defeat your enemies. There’s a new tower to tackle, some new brutalities, a little setup for Halloween, and some UI improvements. Also some bug fixes, why not? If you’re going to the kitchen anyway, you might as well bring your plate with you.
Zookeeper world‘Sure, it’s not that similar to the real one Zookeeper. It’s more typical of free matching puzzle games like candy Crush Saga. But I definitely enjoyed it and some time ago I even cleared all 200 stages with all the stars I had collected. What now? Fortunately, an update has arrived. It adds fifty new stages, which means some new zoo decorations and two new species of animals: the camel and the hippopotamus. With them comes a tricky new puzzle element in the shape of balloons that must be collected before they reach the top of the play area. And, well, I’ve already completed all these new stages with all the stars collected. Oops! Apparently new stages are added every month so I have to hide.
Cozy grove gets a little cozier with its second major update. The fall update adds a lot to the game. Like hey, you can now go into your tent and decorate the inside. You can upgrade the tent to have more rooms and decorate them too. Like in this one game! There are now cats that you can lure and hold into your tent. A fun Halloween event is planned for October 20th. Other additions: an accordion, a photo mini-game, bunnies, new clothes, new decorations, more wardrobes, new background music and more. I think I will give what is wanted UMMSotW Award for this week. That feels like cozy.
Disney Magic KingdomsHey, Walt Disney World is 50 years old for free! Seems like a good opportunity to celebrate the real Disney Magic Kingdoms, and that’s exactly what Gameloft does. New attractions, discounted items, decorations and costumes inspired by those at Walt Disney World Resort have been added to the game for you to collect and use. There’s also a limited-time Halloween event featuring the classic hitchhiker ghosts Ezra, Gus, and Phineas. It also brings the popular Hatbox Ghost from the Haunted Mansion attraction in the real parks. Ghostly!
The Oregon Trail, Gee, this game kills it with its updates like dysentery kills my poor travelers when I play it. This latest version includes a brand new full-length journey called The California Trail. New regions, new content, new events, gold, nitroglycerin, a new prospector class, more fish to catch and lots of new sights. Regardless of this trip, there’s a new quest, a contract feature, and a cool new gallery to check out artwork after you’ve signed contracts. Add some balance tweaks and performance will improve, and that’s all. New places to die, what can you not like?
Wonderbox: the adventure maker, Seriously, a good week of extensive updates. Wonder box has a new campaign called Arcane uprising where you have the chance to become a master mage. The level cap has been raised to 80, there’s a new feature that lets you follow creators, and there’s a whole new building set called Master of Magic. New blocks, new items, new characters and loads of magic fun. Apart from that, I see a number of small tweaks and adjustments to make the game more enjoyable, as well as improved compatibility with Apple Silicon. Well, that’s a nice final note. Let’s do that.
This concludes the important updates of the last week. However, I’m sure I missed a few, so please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below and let everyone know if you think anything should be mentioned. As usual, important updates will likely get their own messages later this week, and I’ll be back next Monday to round up and fill in the blanks. Have a great week!
