Hello everyone and welcome to the week! It’s time to take another look at the noteworthy updates of the past seven days. I could probably write an entire article about St. Patrick’s Day news, but that’s too much green considering the holiday is already in the rearview mirror this year. Instead, I tried to include a balanced update plate to celebrate the rainbow of weird and inviting colors that the App Store is. Metaphor! Of course, you can stay tuned for updates yourself by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly review is only meant to tell you about things you may have missed. Let’s do it!
jetpack ride, Free After all the hype, I’m still getting started with the St. Patrick’s Day update. I mean people like them. They like the holiday when everyone gets very drunk and wears green. I can’t blame them. i can’t blame jetpack ride or. You can still get a little in on his event, where three holiday jetpacks are up for grabs along with an awesome Celtic teleporter. Throw in a SAM skin and some wild outfits for Barry and you’ll have plenty to keep you busy until the next event starts.
Vigil RPG, $1.99 This is a small update. Just a small update and it doesn’t have a whole ton of new stuff. But I really like Vigil RPG and I’m glad to see that the developer continues to support the game after so many years. This update fixes text formatting on the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max, and adds some cool new comments for Bo the bartender. The only catch is that you have to be pretty low level to see these new words of wisdom. I think this is a good reason to create a new character.
NBA 2K22 Arcade EditionA big update for Apple Arcade’s premier hoop game, that’s what it is. A new NBA All-Star 22 playground and matching jerseys will be available in My Career and Association modes. All NBA team rosters have been updated, with player attributes and ratings adjusted. Beautiful and relevant, at least this week. In terms of new features and other additions, we’ve got a new play mode so you can review your highlights, and a handy language switcher in the settings menu so you don’t have to reset your game. There are also tons of bug fixes, which is never a bad thing.
Angry Birds ReloadedThere was a time when your only hope was to overcome a difficult stage in Angry Birds was to bang your head against him until you get it. Then the Mighty Eagle appeared and the Wallet Warriors rejoiced. But how do you introduce Mighty Eagle if you don’t sell IAP anymore? Obviously you make it a daily login bonus. Angry Birds Reloaded will now give you some mighty eagles if you come to play. Use them for particularly nasty levels, or save them for a rainy day that never comes. The power is yours.
Horizon Chase, Free Fatigue: Weekly test. Wired: Daily Problems. That’s the whole story with this latest update for the incredible racer. Horizon Chase, which will allow you to earn more rewards and give you a reason to play every day. Who doesn’t want to play Horizon Chase daily? Run it, complete four tracks and collect your goodies. This is a win-win. Your brain will love you for the release of dopamine, but isn’t life all about keeping Brain-san happy? That’s for sure.
Temple Run: Puzzle AdventureThis week, the mandatory free puzzle game update will replace another Apple Arcade game that isn’t technically free. I’m tired of coming up with smart things to say about cartoon explosion, Sorry. Not that it’s much different, I guess. You get sixty new levels to play, as well as a new set of tournaments. There’s also a new Treasure Trove feature where you earn stars to restore relics to a valuable collection. Of course, this is a reasonable enough incentive to play.
Metro surfersFree There is a certain charm to cherry blossoms when spring arrives, and as we all know, when you think of cherry blossoms, you think of… Vancouver? Well, whatever. Any excuse to get a part of my home country in my lifetime, I guess. Make your way through gorgeous flowering trees with the new Pink Surfer, and no, it’s not that Pink. Nothing, I’m sure. Grab the wood-flavoured spring plank, purchase a stealth suit for Zane, and fight your way to the New York City Marathon Challenge for even more rewards.
Braulhallafree You might have thought the St. Patrick’s Day updates were complete with jetpack ride things. Fools! Absolute fools! From well there is one more thing. Open one, save the other! You know this. Wait, what am I talking about? Let’s move on. Some new holiday-themed items are available in Luck o’ Brawl, an event that is probably coming to an end as you read this. This update also introduces a new legend in the form of Arcadia, the Faerie Queen. She has a spear, a big sword, and a giant beetle. What more could you want? I hope not much more, because this is basically an update. Next!
MARVEL Future Battle, Free Gosh, you can really tell who has offered their rights to the likeness and who hasn’t. Latest event in Future Marvel Battle centered around Disney Plus Hawkeye The TV show that was damn good in my books. This means new uniforms for Hawkeye, Kate Bishop and Maya Lopez, as well as new Level 3 versions of Hawkeye and Potentially Transcended versions of Kate and Maya. There is a new collectible in the form of SHIELD archives (formerly Office of Strategic Espionage and Logistics, now Office of Strategic Intervention and Logistics). As a nice bonus, Story Mode now has “Repeat” and “Autoplay” options. No pizza dog? Boo, there is no coveted reward for you!
Taiko no Tatsujin Pop Tap BeatWell, this is the last game. By default, this is the receipt of the cherished UMSres reward for this week, so let’s hope it lives up to it. There are a couple of new tweaks and features, but let’s be honest, we’re here for the new songs. This new version is a huge hit: baby shark. Ha ha ha, oh No! Also in this update is You have made a friend in me from toy story, Blues Rhapsody, and a few more songs. Baaaabi Shark, do-do-do OH NOOOOOOO!
This concludes the important updates of last week. I’m sure I missed something, so please feel free to comment below and let everyone know if you think there’s anything worth mentioning. As usual, major updates will likely receive their own news during this week, and I’ll be back next Monday to take stock and fill in the gaps. Have a nice week!
