The first major update for Crytek’s debut iOS title, Fibble, has just been released.

Given the game was previously criticized for needing “tighter design in future levels“, this update should prove the ideal time to rectify past flaws. A new area has been added with eight extra levels to check out, as well as “lost files” bolstering level numbers by a further nine. A new crew member friend also features in the form of Klonk, who offers alternative ways to play.

There’s now iCloud support for save files so players can always pick up where they left off if they switch between their iPhone and iPad. Finally, new skins have been included for those keen on seeing a new look.

Adjustments such as speedier loading times and a reworked “nudge” feature have been added to round off the package.

Due to the update, all versions of Fibble are currently reduced to $0.99 so it’s an ideal time to check it out.

It’s been a pretty amazing week for hugely popular game Where’s My Water?. It was the app responsible for Chunli Fu winning in the 25 billionth download on the App Store competition, thus propelling the game into the history books.

Where’s My Water? is back in the news courtesy of a new update that gives fans 20 new and free levels of fun to play. The latest chapter, Caution to the Wind, encourages players to create airstreams via fans to move water and solve those pesky puzzles. This update brings the full level tally within Where’s My Water? to an impressive 200.

Hopefully we’ve not seen the last of Swampy and there will be more levels to come. For now though, 20 levels should keep many a fan happily entertained for a while to come!

The update is available now. For those yet to give this addictive puzzle game a shot, this is the ideal time to help Swampy.

It’s the season of love at the moment and Where’s My Water? has embraced that idea with a new Valentine’s Day themed update.

Since its initial launch in September last year, highly enjoyable physics-puzzler Where’s My Water? has done a fantastic job of not only providing regular updates to its fans but also educating them along the way.

It’s a more lighthearted update this time round, though. Swampy’s present to his fans is the update ‘Hearts and Crafts’ which allows players to unlock a new level every day for the next 10 days starting February 14th.

Take a look at the screenshots below. Things are looking pretty darn cute this Valentine’s Day with plenty of heart-themed levels ahead.

The Where’s My Water? Valentine’s Day update is available now for existing owners of the app. Anyone else who hasn’t tried the game out yet (and why not?) can pick it up for $0.99.

It’s that time of the week again when Chillingo unleashes some new and exciting games at our iOS devices. This time round, it’s the turn of two games previously covered by us, namely Super Crossfire and Little Lost Chick.

Previously an Xbox Live Indie Arcade gem, Super Crossfire offers intense and enjoyable top-down shooting fun. An unique switching mechanic enables players to warp from the bottom to the top of the screen thus avoiding enemy fire as they shoot at the waves of enemies coming at them.

Super Crossfire comes in two varieties: an iPhone version priced at $0.99 and an Universal build for iPad owners priced at $2.99.

Check out the impressive gameplay trailer below.

Little Lost Chick offers a different kind of experience, providing physics based puzzle fun for both casual and veteran players. Aimed at the whole family, Little Lost Chick focuses on Bruce the baby bird as he tries to make his way home. 100 levels in all provides varied gameplay such as having to cut vines, clear soft ground or bounce around on leaves. The physics engine ensures that everything responds just how the player would expect.

Little Lost Chick is another title available in two forms. A $0.99 version for iPhone users and an Universal build for iPad players priced at $2.99.

Recently at the Eurogamer Expo in London, I had the opportunity to check out some upcoming titles from the casual gaming maestros at Chillingo.

First up was Super Crossfire, originally an Xbox Live Indie and PC game that’s now making its way to the iPhone and iPad. It’s a space shooter with a very retro style appearance and one very neat trick up its sleeve. The player can warp their ship from one side of the screen to the other, effectively flicking the action upside down and round again.

Having played it, it adds a great tactical element to things as besides just shooting at everything that moves, it’s important to remember to flip round to avoid being shot at. It’s clearly going to take a bit of practice to master but I think arcade shooter fans are going to lap this up as it offers a great, unique element to the genre. Hopefully other players will find themselves not quite as shockingly bad at it as I was!

Developers Radian Games state that there’ll be over 150 different enemy waves across five different chapters with a plentiful supply of upgrades to keep things interesting. In the final build, there’ll be three different control methods with virtual buttons, slide and tilt based controls to hopefully keep every gamer happy.

Super Crossfire is set for release this coming Thursday, October 13th and will be priced at $0.99 for the iPhone version and $2.99 for the HD iPad edition.

Following a more familiar line of gaming for Chillingo is Little Lost Chick. It’s an amalgamation of a number of different types of casual games. There’s Cut the Rope style elements with the need to cut rope that keeps the chick from his goal. It’s not just cutting and swinging though with bounce pads and blocks also helping along the way and adding an ever enjoyable original touch to the action.

I only played a few levels of Little Lost Chick but what I saw was enjoyable. While players can choose to just get to the end of the level, there’s also the prospect of collecting up three eggs scattered around each level and adding some longevity to the game. Each brief stage was consistently interesting, throwing different obstacles at poor Bruce the chick. It made for a puzzle adventure type experience than just the usual physics puzzle challenge. The full version promises 100 levels in all which should ensure an enjoyable time for puzzle fans.

Little Lost Chick is set to launch this month for all iOS devices.

Last but most definitely not least was Hank Hazard, my personal favorite of the three. Hank Hazard is the name of an adorable stunt hamster. Players must guide Hank around numerous levels whilst collecting stars and secret coins. Gameplay is a little similar to Little Lost Chick but considerable charm oozes from the title. Again, there are 100 levels on offer, each combining a mixture of physics based puzzling, fast reactions and a hint of racing.

As the screenshots below show, Hank is a daring hamster, not just falling through each stage but by flying across the air thanks to boxing gloves and bouncey pads. As a stunt hamster, fire and other obstacles like bombs must be avoided. It’s a simple concept but one that I think will be quite a hit if the preview I had is anything to go by.

Hank Hazard will be released for all iOS devices in November.

We’ll be sure to keep track of each game’s development.
