TheCodingMonkeys has recently updated Carcassonne, the tiling laying board game app, with two new expansions: the Winter Edition and the Double Base Tile Set.

The Winter Edition adds a custom interface, new tiles, and the Gingerbread Man to your game. The tasty treat is a delicious holiday bonus for towns that passes from player to player. The Double Base Tile Set expansion lengthens the game by simulating playing with two Carcassonne sets at the same time as many long time players often do with the real board game.

The Winter expansion can be purchased in-game for $1.99 and the Double Base Tile Set expansion is $0.99.

Santa Spreads Happiness Like a Virus in the New Plague Inc. Update

Posted by on December 17th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Plague Inc., by Ndemic Creations, has discovered an all new mutation: Santa’s Little Helper. A new update adds a new Christmas scenario where you infect the world with the holiday spirit. Governments have banned the joyous holiday and it is up to the Neurax Worm and Santa to bring the world to its knees with happiness.

The update brings some upgrades, too. Using highly advanced technology you can now teleport to other countries using portal. The progress screen has also gotten a bit of a redesign so now you can see your completion % and challenges. Several diseases, including Parasite, Prion, and the Neurax Worm, have mutated and the humans are getting smarter so the game will now be a bit more of a challenge.

There is so much to to explore – just try not to catch the flu while you do. You can check out the cheerful new Plague Inc. for $0.99.

Angry Birds is Officially Five Years Old Today, and Gets a New User-Created Episode to Celebrate

Posted by on December 11th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Angry Birds, the unassuming (at the time) little physics game that later went on to become an empire, has turned five today. And after five years of a somewhat obscene amount of spin-offs and merchandising, and a reported 600+ billion birds being tossed at rickety structures, Rovio is celebrating with a new episode, titled Play the Next Level.

What makes Play the Next Level special is that each of the levels has been created by series fans. Rovio pulled the best of the best from the thousands of entries to give us all 30 all-new stages to enjoy.

They’re also celebrating in the real world by hosting a party for a couple thousand local children, and will be giving all babies born in Finland on 12/11 a special edition baby Flock outfit. Because, you know, why not?

If you don’t live in Finland you’re out of luck with regards to the party and special edition jammies, but you can check out the new Play the Next Level “BirdDay” (ugh) episode right now.

BOO!
Want to know how we felt about spreading all these ghostly heebie-jeebies? Check out our Haunt the House: Terrortown review!

Haunt the House: Terrortown is a supremely cute action/puzzle game that’s all about a ghost on a quest to shut some humans up. Permanently. Players take control of a little ghost that makes itself as scary as possible in order to drive away the loud and obnoxious folks that are partying near its clock tower. Humans are sometimes a bit too stupid to realize when they’re being haunted, so this guide will help players clear the area of all objectionable presences as quickly as possible.


 

Getting Started

haunt_the_house_04

  • Use small taps to dart from place to place – Learning to control your ghost is vital for a haunting job well done. If you’re restricting yourself to a single area, use small taps to move from place to place. That way you can explore your surroundings calmly and efficiently.
  • Hold down to zip from scene to scene – On the other hand, if you’re wanting to travel from one scenario to another lickety-split, hold down on the screen to barrel through an area at top speed.
  • Possess a bell in the clock tower to change your ghost’s appearance – Once a person is dead, they take up residence in one of the tower’s bells. Your ghost can possess these bells to take on the inhabitant’s visage.
