BulkyPix has had an awesome six years, and to celebrate its birthday the developer is giving away 16 premium games to fans.
“Since 2008, our company has grown to become a leading provider of entertainment, first for smartphones and tablets, and now for every possible platforms. We intend to continue our development on the mobile market and to reinforce our presence on PC, Mac, Smart TVs and to explore the promises of VR. There are always many opportunities to tackle with today’s global presence of gaming in our lives and that keeps us really motivated to go further with our projects and our partners,” said Olivier Pierre, CEO of BulkyPix.
Nitropia is an indie developed tower defense title, from Dawn Patrol Games and being published by Bulkypix, that will be coming to iOS soon. The game incorporates real-time strategy elements with a gradual progression of complexity as you play. Each level will add at least one new challenge to keep the game exciting.
You will be able to play both offense and defense, collect resources, and pit your 3 best characters against bosses in Survival Mode. For an interesting change of pace, you will also be able to destroy enemy bases in Base Battle Mode.
Nitropia will be a premium game, but the developers will be giving a bunch of levels away for free and letting users choose what level of content they would like to buy into – such as the full game or the full game + all the advanced towers. The price is set to begin at $1.99, which gives you the full game and 3 characters to play with. You will be able to use earned in-game currency to unlock bonus characters, upgrades and advanced attacks.
Treasure Tombs is an action/puzzle game where you take on the role of Colorado Cajones, a treasure hunting adventurer exploring the tomb of Pharaoh Ra-Khan. You must deftly dodge mummies while collecting gems and avoiding curses. The game will include 99 levels, a ton of items to collect, and some great voice acting.
Expect to see Treasure Tombs: Ra Deal in the App Store soon.
The exceptionally original gamebook Lone Wolf, by Joe Dever, will be receiving its next chapter on August 7.

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.
Bulkypix have today announced that Starkom’s Heli Hell will arrive on the App Store this week.

Heli Hell will fly into the App Store on June 26 and will be free to 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.
