Only a month since the Easter update, VC Mobile is giving Creature Quest players another mother load of bonuses. This time it’s to celebrate Mother’s Day, observed during May in over 100 countries around the world.

The first perks to pick up in the update are the check-in rewards. From May 11-18, logging in to Creature Quest daily gets you loot including tokens, battle coins, essence and energy. When you log in, you’ll also notice the loading and homepage screens have been adorned with gifts and flowers in honour of Mother’s Day.

There’s a new quest called Mommy Meowgic to complete, too, during which you’ll barter with a brand new Legendary creature – the Sphinx. You’re rewarded for finishing the quest with a chance of acquiring a Rare, Epic or Legendary critters including a Lizard Man Archer, and Mummy. The quest is only available for a limited time, so be quick.

If you want to net yourself a Sphinx, you’ll have the chance to do so in the Mother’s Day Summon offers event. From May 12-18, any Diamond Summon has the chance of revealing a Sealed With A Kiss box. Inside will be 1 of 8 creatures – four Epic (Dark Elf, Griffin, Siren and Harpy) and four Legendary (Shadow Temptress, Medusa, Sorceress and Sphinx). Good luck!

Along with the seasonal events, VC Mobile has introduced a new time-saving feature. Quick Questing means you can skip to the end of a quest you’ve completed in the past, and still get some of the rewards. It’s not free, however, so make sure you have sufficient battle coins and energy if you want to use it – especially for more difficult quests.

If you’re looking for a colourful new RPG, you can join the ever-changing quest maps of Creature Quest by downloading it for free from Google Play and the App Store.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Though the terms “relaxing” and “challenging” might not win any competitions for being the next “fish and chips” or “rock and roll”, these act as the two core gameplay concepts for Infinity Games’ latest woodland puzzler: What, The Fox?, where it’s your task to ensure that no fox gets left behind.

Set against a soundtrack full of natural woodland sounds, What, The Fox? is a game that places emphasis on providing players with a tranquil yet head-scratching fox-filled adventure. In either story or infinity mode, What, The Fox? sets you the objective of helping each furry critter find their way home, achieved via swiping in the necessary direction of each next respective hole.

Don’t be fooled by the soothing sounds of leaves crunching and the wind blowing however, difficulty rises during every step of your journey, and later sleepy foxes require an even closer eye if you’re to succeed. Solve their charades, guide them into the holes, and work your mind. Doing so means you’ll be rewarded with a maximum 3 star rating, which in turn can unlock new game packages.

All of What, The Fox?’s 100 story levels and ones found within infinite mode can be resolved multiple ways, making it easy to find a fresh experience every time you wish to squeeze in a quick play session. Don’t see a clear path one way? Try another. The game provides more than enough opportunities for players to surprise themselves mentally.

Ready to try out what some are considering to be the most relaxing game of 2017 for yourself? What, The Fox? is free to download from both the Google Play and App Store now.
