The new AI can be set to easy, normal, and hard depending on your level of skill, and you can play against it in the campaign, classic 40 v/s 40 battle, or a quick 16 v/s 16. The update also makes the game universal, revamps the campaign, and tweaks the overall style.

“This version of Stratego is tailored to the way mobile players are used to playing on their devices. Short sessions and the possibility to play whenever you want are important to players. With this in mind we have made a great game that appeals to young and old alike. Just like the physical board game does,” says Jur van Teunenbroek, producer of Stratego.

You can download the updated Stratego for $1.99 right now.

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: DUNGEON OF CARDS :: Read Review »

Card Dungeon, by Playtap Games, has gotten a major overhaul that adds new features and fixes some old bugs.

Playtap has increased the speed of game play by shrinking the max room size and allowing Crusaders to move faster across the map when there are no monsters lurking nearby. Card Dungeon now also saves your game for you after every turn, making it easier to pick up and put down when you need to.

Last but not least, when you beat the boss on each level the dungeon will begin to collapse. You must race to the exit before time runs out.

You can download the newly-updated Card Dungeon for $3.99 on the App Store.
