There’s a small but fairly significant update out now for Bulkypix’s dark Endless Runner, Dark Lands.
Besides a number of bug fixes and some performance improvements for all devices (especially the iPhone 4, yay), the game now offers a button based control system for those who just couldn’t get on with the swipes that were previously required.
Dark Lands is available now from the App Store and it’s a free download.

Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf, which we called “highly exceptional and unique” in our review, is a half-gamebook half-RPG adventure full of story and combat. Today the game has received a huge update called Forest Hunt that expands on the game’s original adventure, taking you through the “Kingdom of Sommerlund and the dreaded Darklands.”
The update features a variety of alternative paths, beautiful new 3D locations, and even packs a “magical” new mini-game. Act 2: Forest Hunt also includes many additional new features that will affect the entire game, including 3 different difficulty levels, “re-tuning and improvements” to the game’s AI, new ranged attacks, and overall improvements to the game’s gear repair mechanics.
You can get Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf on the App Store for free.
It’s a strategy game that encourages players to use their resources wisely in order to prevail. From the official feature set:
- Discover the famous world of Maya The Bee
- Control Maya and recruit your ant’s squad through the meadows, dodge obstacle, overcome the many enemies and resolve puzzles
- Coordinate your ant friends and beware the mean wasps
- Play to the many challenges of Maya’s friends.
Maya the Bee: The Ant’s Quest is available for $2.99 on the App Store.
A few of Bulkypix’s recent titles have gotten a series of rather impressive updates. And here they are, in alphabetical order by title because I don’t want to play favorites.
Bardbarian is up first with back-ups for game saves, a rebalancing of certain unit prices, Leaderboards, and a new Endless mode. Dead Effect is next with new daily objectives, weapons, Biohazard mode, a loot drop system, and has gone free-to-play. Finally there’s Pretentious Game, which has received a brand new chapter.
You can download Bardbarian, Dead Effect, and Pretentious Game for $0.99, free, and free, respectively.

The Sandbox has been going strong on the App Store ever since its release, and it doesn’t really seem to be losing any momentum. The new update includes a few notable additions such as a free campaign made up of user-created content, the ability to search user-created worlds by category (pixel art, music, etc), new daily quests, and prism and laser elements. Oh, and controllable avatars (including a ninja). So on top of all the arting and physicsing, users will also be able to create their own custom platforming stages.
The Sandbox‘s new update will be going live this Thursday, 2/13.
