At long last, Watch OS 2 is finally here! I’m legitimately excited about the update [LINK], but in order for all us watch users to start seeing the benefits we have to instal it first. If you’ve never updated Watch OS before, or if you did once upon a time and have since forgotten how, we’ve got a quick little installation guide for you.
First off, you need to go through the Watch app on your iPhone. Open it up and then tap on General - you can find it at the bottom of the screen when you first open the app.
From inside the General menu you can open Software Update, which will be the second choice from the top.
Once the app has automatically verified your current Watch OS version it’ll give you the choice to start downloading Watch OS 2. Before you begin, be sure to follow the instructions at the bottom of the screen (you can find them if you scroll down a tiny bit).
- Place the Apple Watch on its charger
- Make sure the Apple Watch battery is showing at least 50%
- Keep your iPhone paired with your Apple Watch and connected to wifi - don’t wander too far with it or the connection will be broken and the installation will fail
At this point all you have to do is tap Download and wait for it to finish doing its thing. Just be aware that you’ll need to be patient. It’s going to take a while to download everything, verify the files, then actually install to the watch itself. The amount of time will vary a bit depending on your internet connection, but for me it ended up taking a couple hours.
The enormously popular browser game DDTank has been shrunk down and released onto mobile but with absolutely nothing lost in the translation.
This is a brand new DDTank experience but with a with all your favorite features like challenges, checkpoints, enemies, activities, and items intact.
But the whole experience has been optimized for mobile so you'll find an improved user interface, faster loading times, simplified content, and online and offline play so you never have to stop shooting.
DDTank is a press and swipe turn-based shooter in a similar vein to Angry Birds or Worms. You'll take it in turns firing a variety of different projectiles at your opponent and whoever falls first is the loser.
There's a variety of different modes that allow you to play against your friends in PvP or with them to defeat the evil Gulu. If you have no access to the internet you can play the PvE modes offline.
DDTank actually takes cooperative multiplayer to the next level, as you can actually marry another player inside the game.
You character is fully customizable with over 300 outfits to dress them up in and a variety of different weapons like darts, lasers, plungers, and more.
There are two features in the mobile version that are entirely new to DDTank. The DDT Academy allows you to participate in Classic Battle Rivals, Challenge Training, and Survival Mode, and the Labyrinth includes a ton of new dungeons.

Drama! Someone has stolen a whole bunch of stuff from Downton Abbey and it's up to you to get it all back. And figure out who did it in the first place, of course.
From MMOs to MOBAs, Spacetime Studios has you pretty much covered at this point. At least now that Call of Champions is officially available worldwide.
The aptly-named Tilt to Live Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Bundle features three of One Man Left's most popular titles - Tilt to Live, Tilt to Live 2:Redonkulous, and Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge. It's already a pretty great deal, but if you've been waiting to pick it up then you might want to wait just a teensy bit longer.
The original Dead Effect was a decent B movie style romp through a sci-fi zombie setting, and the sequel looks to be more of the same. Well, more of the same general setting, anyway.
World of Tanks Blitz is Really Embracing the "World" Part with its Upcoming Rise of Continents Event

Get Set Games has recently let slip (i.e. told everybody in a press release) that a sort of definitive version of Storm Casters, called Storm Casters Ultra, is bound for the App Store. In fact it's soft launched in Canada right now.
