The batch of pixelated goodness known as The Sandbox is no stranger to update goodness, and its latest build brings in yet more interesting features.

The latest update reveals a collaboration with Robery Kirkman’s Invincible comics characters.

★ THE SUPER-HEROES CAMPAIGN ★
Battle against villains and restore peace in the world with the heroes from Invincible! Heroes Team! Punch enemies, solve puzzles, and make your heroes work as a team by toggling between them!

Discover the incredible powers of our 4 new super-heroes elements: Dupli-Kate, Invincible, Rex-Splode and Monster Girl! (Based on the comic book series entitled “Invincible” created by Robert Kirkman, Corey Walker and Ryan Ottley)

We had an opportunity to review The Sandbox a while back, and loved it.

The update is out now, with the game available for free (with optional in-app purchases) on the App Store. The new update trailer is below:

GAMEVIL Updates Darkness Reborn with Item Evolution, an Expert Mode, and More

Posted by on January 19th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Fans of GAMEVIL‘s relatively new MORPG Darkness Reborn are in for a treat: the game is getting a January update.

Per the recent press release, version 1.1.1 brings:

Elemental Dungeons: Every Monday through Saturday, players can participate in daily dungeons, where they will encounter and defeat monsters of different strengths and elements such as fire, ice, poison, and lightning, in order to receive Evolve Stones.

Item Evolution System: Using these newly introduced Evolve Stones, players can evolve their maximum-enhanced Epic and Legendary items for the chance to increase their items’ Gear Scores.

Equipment Salvage System: In addition to having an Evolve option, Epic and Legendary items now have a Salvage function through which players can acquire crafting materials, Evolve Stones, and Evolution Catalyst (an item that increases the chance of a successful evolution).

Expert Mode: After clearing all 15 stages in the Fallen Iron Castle map in Hard Mode, players can attempt to clear stages in Expert Mode, beginning in the Archen Forest map. The Expert Mode will bring challenges such as increased HP, Attack, and number of monsters.

We had an opportunity to formally look at Darkness Reborn last year and enjoyed it quite a bit. It’s available for free (with available in-app purchases) on the App Store now.
