Halfbot’s The Blocks Cometh has been given one big final update making it universal, adding iCade support, and 5 new characters from all across the world of iOS gaming.

Yes, iPad support has finally come to this game. The game also supports the Retina Display, so while there may not be added definition to those pixels, they will look crisp without the scaling interpolation that iOS usually adds to non-Retina games. The iCade support even makes the game feel exactly like the old-school arcade game it was destined to be. Don’t worry, iCade Mobile users, as there’s support for that too.

Velocispider‘s eponymous araknasaur is a playable character, climbing blocks with the ability to shoot ones directly above it, though blocks to the side can’t be shot! 1-bit Ninja‘s ninja makes an appearance, though it can thankfully move both left and right. Even the editors of Touch Arcade make appearances in the game, because when the sky is falling, there’s no one you want on your side more than a bunch of app bloggers!
