One 24-hour speed booster to make catching (and running from) zombies loads easier, ten grenades, ten painkillers, ten Second Chance revive kits, and ten rocket chickens.

Zynga Launches Brand New Farmville Experience with Farmville 2: Country Escape

Posted by on April 18th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Zynga has launched Farmville 2: Country Escape for iOS devices, and with it, a re-imagined farming/crafting experience for mobile players.

The current app maintains most of the elements that make the game so popular: the ability to craft and manage output. Facebook is not required, and the game is careful to allow players to consume the game in time chunks that work for them. It also has a new social control mode, which allows users to play anonymously or connect on social networks, enjoy connected rewards, and even play in offline mode.

FarmVille pioneered social gaming on the web, and with FarmVille 2: Country Escape we’ve reimagined the franchise as a mobile experience to match how players want to connect with their farm and with their friends,” says Jonathan Knight, vice president of games at Zynga. “The foundation of the mobile game was built on listening to player feedback, so we’ve added features such as giving players the choice to play with friends or on their own, connectivity between the mobile game and FarmVille 2 on Facebook and the ability to play offline. We’ve created an experience where all FarmVille fans will feel right at home. As we focus on growing and sustaining this beloved franchise, we’re proud for FarmVille 2: Country Escape to usher in a new chapter of FarmVille on the go.”

Farmville 2: Country Escape is available for free on the App Store.

Eyefi has announced a new cloud-centric service called the Eyefi Cloud, which allows smartphone users to keep photos and such organized and accessible on smartphones, tablets, PCs, or smart TVs.

The Eyefi Mobi SD card allows for digital camera users to work with the Eyefi Cloud and devices with the Eyefi Mobi app onboard to sync image data.

Eyefi chief Matt DiMaria underscores the functionality of the service. “Photo lovers know that life’s most important moments should be captured using a digital camera but it’s difficult to access those shots until long after the images are taken,” he says. “Eyefi Cloud makes those highest-quality shots available within seconds of them being captured, so photographers can immediately enjoy quality images on the beautiful displays of their smartphone, tablet, PC or smart TV.”

Eyefi Mobi is available for free on the App Store.

Monster High Ghouls and Jewels is a Freaky Fashion-Forward Match-3 Puzzler

Posted by on April 17th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Oh Monster High. You and your absolutely awful horror-themed puns. It’s enough to make the Crypt Keeper roll what’s left of his eyes. Still, it’s a popular enough series (even with the terrible puns) for Mattel and BluBox Games to have released Monster High Ghouls and Jewels: a match-3 puzzle game.

Ghouls and Jewels tosses you into the creepy high school as its newest student. You’ll have to enlist the help of series favorites like Draculaura and Frankie as you take on the game’s 100+ puzzles. You’ll also be able to customize the look of your own Ghoul by unlocking and purchasing new outfits along the way.

Monster High Ghouls and Jewels is available now for free.

Knights of Pen & Paper is a weird and wonderful “make your own” sort of RPG adventure that’s as fun as it is funny. And right now it’s free!

For a limited time – specifically from today through 11:59pm PDT next Monday – you can grab Behold Studios’ fan letter to table top RPGs for nothing. Seeing as it’s a pretty great game, I’d suggest doing just that.

Don’t be a Pygon, Download Horn Right Now While it’s Still Free

Posted by on April 16th, 2014

Phosphor Games’ Horn is a pretty great adventure that most iOS gamers would do well to experience, and it’s currently free.

If for some odd reason you haven’t helped the young apprentice save his village (and the rest of the world, really), well there’s no time like the present is there? And if that’s not enough, there’s also the challenge modes that will keep you busy well after the main story has concluded.

For the time being, you can grab Horn off the App Store for free. I’d suggest you avoid dawdling.

Wizards of the Coast’s latest (and by association, also the greatest) digital CCG, Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers is just around the corner. Singleplayer is back in this latest edition, as well as full multiplayer support across all versions (iPad, PC, etc). So no more staring longingly at PC features! There’s also an improved tutorial that should make it a bit easier for new players to figure out what they’re doing.

However the biggest change, and perhaps the one that will please and excite fans the most, is the new and vastly-improved deck manager. Now players will be able to build, customize, and otherwise manage a total of up to 30 different decks. The management itself has also been heavily tweaked, with a heck of a lot more sorting options, automatic suggestions based on your current deck’s strengths, and the ability to customize your land cards if you so desire. It even analyzes and displays your deck’s “stats,” so new players can get a better idea of its overall power, speed, and so on.

Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers will be releasing on iOS soon for free.

Temple Run 2 Updated with Clouds, Wheels, and Easter Eggs

Looks like Temple Run 2 has just been updated for Easter, which means you can expect lots of brightly-colored eggs in your future.

No really, there are special Easter artifacts in the game now that turn gems into eggs, as well as some goofy bunny-themed gear to purchase for your characters. But it’s not all about eggs and chocolate – the new update also adds a prize wheel that will pop-up whenever you use a Save Me, and you can now earn a free Save Me by watching a video at the end of your run. Also there was mention about iCloud support.

You can grab the updated version of Temple Run 2 off the App Store right now for free.

PikPok is doing it up, and is doing it up in a dual-pronged way with major updates for two of its popular games.

First up is PikPok’s comic-inspired soccer sim Flick Kick Football Legend. It gets the Infinity Cup, social leaderboards, a practice mode, Player Training, refined UI, a new story and cutscenes, and more.

Also getting some update love is the movie and Netflix series tie-in Turbo FAST. Right in time for the second season of the Netflix exclusive, the game is getting both the movie and series, as well as a new track.

We had an opportunity to check out Flick Kick Football Legends last year. Both apps are free (with optional in app purchases) on the App Store.

Expedia Updates its iPhone/iPod App, Adds in a Digital Media Lounge

Posted by on April 14th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Expedia just updated its iPhone/iPod Touch app to add a digital hub called the Media Lounge.

The Media Lounge presents users hand-picked content meant to make travel easier and more enjoyable. It allows them to download premium content every month via iTunes – stuff like travel guides, wi-fi finders, and more. The first Media Lounge offering is Over, a photo-editing app (regularly $1.99) that enables travelers to personalize photos by adding text and artwork.

All this is in addition to the saving, booking, and itinerary tools already present in the app (which, outside the update, are also available to iPad users).

The Expedia app is available for free on the App Store.

This week I was able to get a look at Travian Games’ Epic Arena, and it looks pretty cool. It’s an asynchronous hex-based tactical arena combat game with multiple factions to control and several arenas to fight in. There are also some new gameplay modes that are being added to the current Facebook version, which include a faster Blitz mode (each player has only 60 seconds to decide what to do on their turn, and there are ELO rankings) and solo Challenges (players are given a predetermined scenario and must figure out how to complete it), that will also be available once it releases on iOS.

The core mechanics involve using five actions per turn to make the most of the units you have available while attempting to either decimate the opposition or destroy their artifacts. Different factions (and their units) play differently, of course, and it’s also possible to use special one-off Power Cards that can do all sorts of different things – and come in different rarities.

Epic Arena should be releasing in the US in about a month or so as a freemium title, and will support cross-platform play.

DeNA and Crytek, the collaborative team behind tactical third-person action game The Collectables, has gotten into the spirit of the season by revealing it ongoing “Easter Egg Mayhem” in-game event that is scheduled to run till 15:00 CEST on April 22.

The event allows players to collect Easter-themed reward cards by accumulating Easter eggs. According to the official announcement, by completing the extremely challenging reward stages players can earn bronze, silver, and Epic reward cards that are not available in the regular campaign.

Crytek Budapest Studio Manager Kristoffer Waardahl mentions the humorous undertones. “The Collectables had an amazing launch and we’re just getting started. Crytek and DeNA are dedicated to delivering great content and the Easter Egg Mayhem event is a prime example of this,” he says. “Easter Egg Mayhem puts a spotlight on the fantastic sense of humor in The Collectables and we hope our fans have as much fun playing through the event as we did making it.”

The Collectables is available for free on the App Store.

We took a look at Toy Rush at PAX Prime back in September, and spent some time with its Canadian release, but now the waiting is almost over.

In case you missed our previous coverage (shame on you), Toy Rush is a combination of tower defense and tower offense, with players collecting cards from packs in order to earn toys to send after other players or to earn new defensive towers. 50 solo missions will also be available so that players may hone their skills, and there will be daily challenges to complete for bonus rewards, but the real point behind all of it is to take on your friends in glorious toy-based combat.

Toy Rush should be coming to the US App Store next month for free.
