Fans of Star Wars: Commander are in for some good news: Disney and Lucasfilm are updating the game with a time-limited campaign called "Secret Alliances."

The new campaign brings a host of new units and features; per the press release:

Campaign Reward units include:

· Johhar Kessen Hero Unit: Former senator Kessen's custom sniper blaster, "Karina," deals extreme damage to soft targets. While he can out-range many static defenses, his ability to damage them is low.

· A-Wing Starship Strike: The Rebel Alliance uses A-Wing starfighters to support ground forces. Their powerful weaponry employs an advanced targeting system, concentrating firepower to dispatch particle shields. (Requires Starship Command)

· HWK-290 Starship Strike: Originally manufactured without weapons, this HWK-290 freighter was outfitted to drop incendiary bombs. The bomb blast affects a moderate area, making it most effective against infantry, but also very capable for attacking enemy HQs.

· TIE Advanced Starship Strike: A newly developed advanced prototype of the TIE Starfighter line, these starships are equipped with a highly sophisticated target tracking system, making them extremely useful against shields. (Requires Starship Command)

· VT-49 Decimator Starship Strike: Receiving command of a VT-49 Decimator is considered an honor in the Imperial Navy. Used as a raiding vessel, this ship drops firebombs which burn a moderate area. It is most effective against infantry, but also very capable for attacking enemy HQs.

New Features:
· Contraband: A new currency called "Contraband" will be introduced with this build. Players will be able to unlock a new, powerful unit that can only be leveled up using this currency.

· Traps: Players will be able to place three new traps around their base as a defense mechanic. Traps will have to be 'reloaded' using currency once they have been used to defend a base in battle.

We had an opportunity to formally review Star Wars: Commander last year. It's available for free (with optional in-app purchases) on the App Store now.

On November 6, Disney will be releasing their new film Big Hero 6. If you can't wait you're in luck, because they've released Big Hero 6 Bot Fight today to get you pumped up. [Editor's Note: Is that supposed to be some sort of joke about the inflatable protagonist? Because if it is I approve!]

The game expands the story of the film as the street thug Yama uses a secret AI-chip to improve his Bot fighter, “Little Yama”. Little Yama goes berserk during a Bot Fight Tournament and infects other bots with its violent programming. The player must then team up with Big Hero 6 to take down Yama and save San Fransokyo.

Big Hero 6 Bot Fight is a match-3 puzzle adventure where you collect and level-up Bots to create the ultimate team. The game includes over 150 unique Bots and allows players to partner up with friends to complete missions and earn rewards.

Cars: Fast as Lightning - Tips, Tricks, Strategies, and Cheats For an Easy Ride

Posted by Nadia Oxford on October 23rd, 2014

Hey there, Stickers:
Want to know all about how impressed we were with Radiator Springs? Check out our Cars: Fast as Lightning review!

Cars: Fast as Lightning is a cute and fun app that combines racing and town-building with the charisma and marketability of Disney Pixar's Cars franchise. It's a friendly game, but that doesn't mean you can't use a few tips to help you make Radiator Springs shine again.

Starting Out

  • Complete quests to earn rewards - Quests queue up on the left side of the screen when you're not racing. Quests offer rewards like experience and coins, and they're a good way to get back on track if you've been meandering from task to task.
  • Pay attention to the difficulty meter before you race - Each car you engage in a race has a difficulty measuring from one to four. Make sure to race within your rank if you don't want to waste gas on a loss.
  • Place attractions on the track to earn more experience with races - Don't neglect putting attractions on race tracks. They earn you a bit of extra experience with every race, plus they make the joint look classy.

Cars: Fast as Lightning is a good city-building/racing game, though it's probably too simplistic for anyone except youngsters.
