+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Match-3 monster sushi battler-thing Sushi Mushi has recently been updated to include a fair number of new elements.

First, two new game pieces have been added; rotten sushi (ick) and bombs (ka-boom!). There are also now 60 new levels, bringing the total offering up to 160. The visuals, music, and sound effects have received some updates as well. Oh, and there's a new medieval world to explore. And some new multiplayer matches that allow you to face off against random opponents for the fun of it or try to battle for gate keys.

GIVEAWAY: We've got four copies of KOTOR to give away! Share/retweet this post on Twitter to be eligible to win. We will send out codes to the winners on Wednesday.

Heads-up, Jedi masters! It's just been confirmed that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is getting a very substantial update. How substantial, you ask?

First and foremost, it's going Universal. So if you don't have an iPad and have been using anything including a 5th Gen iPod Touch or an iPhone 4S and above, good news! The interface is also being tweaked so that the text will display better on smaller devices, and it's even going to support widescreen formats for the iPhone 5 and 5s! In addition, many of the graphical elements such as lighting and shadows are being dressed up for devices using the new A7 processor (iPad Air, Retina Mini, iPhone 5s). There have also been rumblings of MFi controller support, although it's still considered to be in the experimental stages.

So when is all this going to be available? Really, really soon. Like this week soon. If the stars align, the update will go live this Thursday, December 19.


Updated iPhone 5 Widescreen

    Weekend Fun: Poker Pals Goes Free

    Posted by Carter Dotson on March 9th, 2012
    + Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

    Chillingo and Aspyr Media’s Poker Pals has been one of the best asynchronous multiplayer games of the last year on iOS. I have played it on a nearly-daily basis since first getting to play it. This mixture of a turn-based game like Words With Friends and poker has proven to be extremely compelling over time, and I still have 8 or 9 games going at a time.

    Luck is important, but so is skill, finding ways to use the hands. Maybe one move would score more, but another might set up a higher scoring play on the next hand. Playing four cards at once in order to clear out the hand is a great strategy. Is it worth making the first move on the edge of the board to open up the jokers? I’ve played one game where neither of us played a move on the outer edge until the center of the board was a 5x5 block of cards. Weird things can happen in this game, and that’s part of the fun of it, because one move can change the complexion of the board entirely.

    Starting today, Poker Pals for the iPhone is going free. That’s the full version for the iPhone and iPod touch, available at no cost, allowing for those limited to the free version’s three game limit to expand out and find more players. As well, a recent update added iCloud support, so iPad owners with the HD version of the game can now synchronize their games across all iOS devices.

    While the game allows for friends to be found via Crystal or Game Center, and to start up games against random opponents, to help get our readers started out, here’s a list of some of 148Apps staff’s usernames:

    Feel free to add us to play a game. Stay tuned as well, because we’ve heard about something coming to the game that could be best described as... epic.
