The Pygmies Strike Back, Part 1 of 5.
After Nooby hogged the spotlight all last issue, this time everyone gets a bit of attention. But of course, in the world of POCKET GOD, a bit of attention can be Dangerous!

And what about that mysterious artifact-thingy that Nooby found last issue? How will that play into the decision?
This story kicks off the new arc that will divide the tribes like never before!

Seminal episodic app, Pocket God, is coming to the end of its long run with what Bolt Creative is calling the final update, ever. Pocket God Episode 47: Apocalypse, Ow! is available now with some interesting features. A new game is set to come out next year, Pocket God: The Runs, and the digital comic series shows no signs of ending, yet, either, so you’ll still be able to get your dose of Pocket God Pygmy goodness after this final chapter.
The end times have come to the Pygmies of Pocket God, and the apocalypse brings with it friends new and old. Pocket God Episode 47: Apocalypse, Ow! opens up the Apocalypse Temple’s final room, the Closet Room, where a strange, couch-jumping, closet-hiding Pygmy named Tom holds the key to kick-starting the end of days. Forget the Mayans; it turns out that Hollywood’s pesky scientologists were behind the Apocalypse all along!
Back on the island, players can access the Closet Room and use the device within to release Thetans into the world. These pesky spirits may be cute, but they aren’t all fun. Coax Tom out of the closet (…literally) and bring him to the front of the Apocalypse Temple to open up the Xenu room, where Tom and a baby Pygmy combine to form the dictator of the Galactic Confederacy himself, the terrible Xenu. Turns out L. Ron Hubbard was on to something!

The pygmies are back, and they’re sicker than ever–literally.
Please keep in mind that this daunting affliction is not limited to just Pygmies; all forms of life on every island, including gigantic apes, poo-slinging monkeys, hungry T-Rexes, and sharks with laser beams, run the risk of contracting this perilous malady. Even non-organic, inanimate objects can be contaminated, so exercise caution when using an outhouse, borrowing fishing poles, playing the bongos, and more.
So Pocket God has been a complete success. This is no real secret. The original game – with all its pygmy torture and ridiculous amount of mini-games that cover just about every popular genre on the App Store – continues to receive plenty of updates (and accolades!), it’s spawned a sequel of sorts, comics, and now an official theme song! Written by Parry Gripp, no less.
The Pygmy Theme made its first aural appearance in Episode 45: Dance Dance Execution and has been so well received by the fans that Bolt Creative has made it available for download on iTunes. Don’t fret; the song will also see Google Play, Amazon mp3, and Zune releases “… in the coming weeks.”
The tune can be had here for a mere $0.99, and I have to admit it’s pretty catchy. But don’t just take my word for it. Check out the surprisingly awesome music video below and hear for yourself. Pygmies! Pygmies!
The End of Days draws nearer. But rather than dwell on the inevitable destruction of the world, the Pygmies have been given a bit of a reprieve. Bolt Creative’s newest update to their sandbox of death involves a Pygmies-only dance club. Being Pocket God it should come as no surprise that the club comes with its own set of unique perils. It’s not called Dance Dance Execution for nothing.
Players can pull a balloon down from the ceiling and give it to a pygmy who will promptly suck out the helium and start to ramble a-la David After Dentist. Silly as that might be, the real fun can be found on the dance floor. Dragging a pygmy onto it will begin a Dance Dance Revolution-style mini-game in which the proper arrows must be matched or a massive disco ball will drop down and crush the little semi-naked rug cutter.
An all-new Dance Pack (available for $0.99) rounds out the new stuff, and includes more dance moves for the pygmies. Dropping one of them into the hanging go-go cage will get them boogying to a number of tunes, including the Pocket God theme. Pocket God Episode 45: Dance Dance Execution is live and available to download right now. So Macarena on over to the App Store and get to it.
No doom and gloom for the pygmies this time around. At least, not on a global scale. The Pocket God Comics app is getting an update (or rather just got one by the time this ends up being readable) including the 16th issue and a fairly major tweaking to the store’s interface.
In this latest episode, the girls need to fix their raft with a laser. Sure, that makes perfect sense. The catch is they can only get one by catching a laser shark. Oddly that makes a little more sense. And, of course, mayhem and hilarity shall ensue as the pygmies attempt to bag a very large, toothy, and heavily armed fish. The app itself (pictured above) should also be much more navigable. New issues, featured releases, Top Titles and more will be right up there on the main page for all to see and access. It’s looking pretty slick all things considered.
By the time people start reading this, the update should be live. Assuming there are some folks out there who don’t own the app yet, it’s also available for the incredibly low (and obnoxiously expected) price of $0.99.
2012 is still in full-swing and the Earth is still in one piece (more or less), so Bolt Creative is unleashing another catastrophe on an unsuspecting group of pygmies. Okay realistically they’re probably anything but “unsuspecting,” seeing as horrific tragedy is more common in their lives than breathing. Still, a new update has gone live and it involves nasty buzzing things. Those are always lovely.
Pocket God Episode 44: The Perfect Swarm unlocks a new door in the Apocalypse Island temple. An ominous door (okay, okay, they’re all ominous). A door leading to the lair of the Locust Queen. Inside, players can feed pygmies to the rather robust monarch or press out swarms of baby bugs to play with. Literally. This locust swarm can be directly controlled in order to smother, devour or even mutate the poor little fellas as much as anyone could want. But of course there’s more to it. As per usual there’s also a new skin pack, this time with an uber-nerd theme. I have to say, there.s something alluring about changing the moon into a twenty-sided die or switching the sand sculpture for an arcade cabinet. And even that’s not the end of it. In a similarly expectant fashion, Pocket God Comics is getting its fifteenth issue titled Gem Cell Research. Hilarity no doubt ensues.
These new updates are live now. Feel free to open up the App Store app and start downloading. Or stop resisting and buy them already. There’s also that.
Issue 14 of Pocket God Comics is now available on the App Store. Entitled “Para-Abnormal Activity”, it’s the final instalment in the series, before a new story arc begins.
The story in this issue focuses on the two tribes after they crash into a mysterious island while attempting to get home from their previous adventure. The girls are unable to regenerate which is not very convenient given they’ve just landed on a haunted and very spooky island!
For those who have inexplicably missed out on Pocket God Comics before, the comic is based on the very successful game of the same name and consistently features some great artwork.
As always, the comic is priced at $0.99 through an in-app purchase. A taster of the story is available below. For those comic book fans who prefer a physical item, issue 14 will also be available in local comic book shops around the US.
Pocket God is still going strong, blasting right through update number forty-three (43!). The newest episode, “Killing Time,” deals with the kind of stuff that turned Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Deloreans and use of the word “paradox” into national phenomena. In other words, it has to do with futzing around with time. Like time, time. Not wasting a few minutes at the bus stop, time. Players will be able to visit the new Apocalypse Island, home of a multi-roomed temple that includes a time-shifting chamber. It also houses a creepy Aztec calendar that’s counting down to 11:11am, December 21st, 2012.
This is just the first of many apocalypse-themed updates, according to Bolt. Each of the temple’s many rooms features some sort of Armageddon-like power, each to be opened with future updates, but at the moment no other specifics have been revealed. Bolt will be continuing to release more doomsday content over the course of the next 10 months. Hopefully they’ll be able to move on to a new theme after that, assuming the world still exists.
Pocket God in all its dark-humored glory can, as usual, be downloaded from the App Store for $0.99. The other 95% of iOS users who already own it can simply update it like they normally would to get the new stuff.
Pocket God Comics, issues 12 & 13, are available now in the App Store. Issue number 13 is the end to the “A Quest Called Tribe,” story-arc, begun in issue number 10, in which a female pygmy has convinced the boy pygmies to head deep under the water to find her missing tribe. Interestingly, no one dies in either of these issues; it’s up to readers to decide if this is good or bad.
The comic is based on Bolt Creative’s Pocket God, one of the more successful apps on the App Store. The full color comic itself just passed the 500,000 download mark – with each issue coming in at around $0.99 (bundles can be purchased for a smaller per-issue price), we’re sure the folks responsible for the comic are happy.
The comics are available on the App Store now courtesy of iVerse Media, the digital partner of Ape Entertainment, itself the owner of several comic book properties, such as Shrek, Casper and Strawberry Shortcake. As with all the other Pocket God comics, these issues will also be available from your local comic shop as a print comic.
Pocket God continues to build on its phenomenal success with update after update, giving players a ton of content for very litte outlay. Developer Dave Castlenuevo and the gang at Bolt Creative continue to spearhead efforts to release frequent episodic updates. The last one was in October of this year.
Episode 42, entitled Bone Soup, unlocks the powers of the underwater pyramid, itself released back in October with Episode 41: I Sting the Body Electric. The new pyramid powers include the elements of fire, ice, oil, and acid, and air, allowing players to unleash them upon the poor Pygmies to comedic and fatal effect. Check out the video below to see how this will play out:
But wait, there’s more! In addition to a new Candyland skin pack that lets gamers festoon their islands with holiday-flavored treats, Episode 42 adds another annual new Fishmas dance to Pocket God. This year’s edition, titled “12 Days of Fishmas,” can be seen at the video just below – it’s a fun and fatal animated short that has a bit of a sneak peak at the next Bolt Creative game as well – Pocket God: The Runs!
Pocket God Episode 42: Bone Soup will release as an update tomorrow to all current owners of the Pocket God app, while the app still costs a extremely affordable $0.99 – an amazing deal considering the vast amounts of content within it.
It’s amazing how certain iOS games can just explode into our culture, isn’t it? It happened with Angry Birds, which spawned more than a few spin-offs, merchandise and even a cartoon. The sadistic little app from Bolt Creative about the lovably doomed island of pygmies has also been bitten by the success bug. Since its release, Pocket God has seen a ton of content updates, a follow-up with its own metric ton of additions, and a digital comic. Each of these three things have been incredibly popular, but it’s the success of the comic we’re talking about now.
On the heels of a major milestone achievement (500 thousand plus downloads) and a new update (issue #11) comes even better news. Pocket God Comics, in collaboration with Free App A Day (FAAD), is on sale for absolutely free for the next two days. Well technically FAAD is responsible for Thursday’s sale, while MonsterFreeApps is handling Friday. Anyway, from the 8th through the 9th, the now 11 issue strong digital comic app will be available for zilch. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
Great games, great reads, great regular prices and an even greater sale. Honestly, aside from a general discomfort derived from the violent demises of cartoon islanders, I can’t think of a legitimate reason for anyone to miss this sale. It’s looking to be one fantastic weekend.
Ordinarily, it would sound pretty arrogant to suggest that a mere update to a game could quite easily be sold as a full title. When the update in question is for Pocket God however, then it becomes distinctly more plausible.
Since its release over 2 years ago, Pocket God has turned into a hugely successful phenomenon and one that has consistently evolved thanks to its many updates over the years. This time round is arguably the biggest update yet with a game within a game added to the Universal version of the title. That game? It’s called Decapithon and it’s very much like arcade platformers of old.
Much like everything else in Pocket God, Decapithon is easy to access with players simply moving over to the graveyard island and dropping a pygmy into the teleporter. In that teleporter, Pocket God turns into a whole new game but with all the fun and splendour that we’ve come to expect.
Players tilt their iPad to move from left to right along the islands and platforms of each level. It’s not that simple, though, otherwise that’d be dull. A plentiful supply of the undead get in the way of progressing and players must throw axes at them to chop their heads off. In typical Pocket God fashion, it’s still endearingly sweet. Controls are simple to use with tilting left to right moving the pgymy and tapping one of the two buttons to jump. Firing axes is done by tapping in the relevant direction, adding some flexibility to where can be fired at. It’s as simple as that meaning that anyone can join in.
Different enemy types emerge to keep things interesting and there’s even the prospect of boss battles too. While the humble Pygmy Zombie is pretty easy to defeat with a few tosses of the axe, the Moon Witch can throw acid ‘loogies’ and the Big Booga is as fearsome as it sounds. It’s a satisfying experience and excellent fun. The only annoyance I could really pinpoint is that of the tilt controls. I’m no big fan of them admittedly and with the size of the iPad, it would have been convenient to be able to switch to something button based, especially when playing on the move.
Despite that quibble though, Decapithon is just the kind of game that would easily work as a $0.99 title so as a free update for owners of Pocket God, it’s an exceptional addition. It’s been touted as one of the most ambitious updates for the game yet and quite rightly so. Fortunately it’s paid off with style.
Pocket God: Decapithon is available now as a free update for iPad owners of Pocket God or it’s priced at $0.99 for new owners.
Know what’s great about Pocket God? Aside from the malicious glee one gets from snuffing out helpless cartoon characters repeatedly, I mean. It’s that the game has been receiving a ridiculous amount of support since it’s release. Just over 40 Episodes have been released thus far, and Bolt Creative doesn’t look like they plan to slow down any time soon.
Yes, I said “over” 40. The newest Episode, “I Sting the Body Electric” has just gone live. This update adds a coral reef to the Ocean Floor area, complete with jellyfish to torment those loveable, languishing pygmies. It also includes a purchasable “Underwater World” skin pack that changes the Pocket God island’s boulder into a puffer fish and the volcano into a whale. Oh, and there’s something about iOS 5 feature support or something. I wasn’t really paying attention.
I’m kidding! Just kidding! Don’t hurt me!
The new update allows players to make use of two iOS 5 thingies: First, there’s the Asynchronous Turn-Based Gaming that will let them square off against friends and complete strangers in the Battle of the Gods mini-game. Second is the iCloud Storage, which will save progress whenever a level in the battle arena is completed or a new challenge is unlocked. Then they can continue their game with no data loss on any of their other iOS devices.
I suppose there’s no time like the present to dive back in to the pygmy slaughter. Pocket God is, and has been, available on the App Store (iOS 5 support and all) right now for a buck. But really, who doesn’t own it by now?
That tiny little 99c purchase of Pocket God way back in 2009 has gone a heck of a long way with updates coming in fast. It’s meant that owners of Pocket God have always had something to go back to in the game and something new to discover. Now 2 years after its initial release, Bolt Creative has announced the release of the game’s 40th update offering some astounding value. Impressive stuff for such a simple yet compelling title.
The 40th update, titled Battle of the Gods, promises to be the largest content expansion to date for the game. While the previous update introduced God Idols and God Island to the game world, this new episode allows players to use up to four of the aforementioned idols in a showdown against one of 40 gods on God Island. Each God Idol promises different attacks and weaknesses with future updates offering a new idol to obtain and a new god to fight.
Yes, more updates. Bolt Creative has promised that new updates will continue with CEO Dave Castelnuovo making a strong point of stating that the company will continue to take suggestions from avid fans in order to be as popular as ever.
As well as the Battle of the Gods update, players can also download a new Mafia skin pack for $0.99. It offers skins inspired by Mafia culture with players able to change the volcano into the New York skyline, replace the statue on Sand Island with a Pygmy wearing cement shoes and the ability to turn the moon into a pizza amongst many other things.
For the rare minority of iOS owners who have yet to purchase Pocket God, there’s never been a better time than now with a huge amount of content bound to entertain for a tiny cost.
The Battle of the Gods update is available now. Check out the screenshots below.
If you were to look up generosity in the dictionary, I am pretty sure you might find an icon for the game Pocket God next to the definition. Simply put, this is the franchise that just keeps on giving, and for completely free. Their most recent release of the game Pocket God: Journey to Uranus is no exception to the rule either, as it was announced yesterday that another cost absent update has just been made available.
Entitled “Planet of the Living Dead,” the game is delving into a world that gamers have become ever so familiar with: zombies. Not only do the brain gobblers make their first appearance, but now you will also be able to arm your pygmies, in order to fight off the mindless hordes.
Check out the trailer below and let us know in the comments if this is the type of update that could coax a purchase out your stingy wallet.
Pocket God is one of the true success stories on the app store. It was over 2 years ago that it first hit the app store and ever since it’s been riding high in the app store charts. It’s not surprising even considering the wealth of updates that have been released for it gradually. Even when it first came out, it won our esteemed Editor’s Choice award thanks to its casual yet innovative style of god simming and it’s gone from strength to strength since then. Since its release, Pocket God has reached 4.5 million downloads with over 1 million in-app purchases made too. There’s even a whole range of Pocket God Comics now which has been downloaded over 300,000 times thanks to the seven issues currently available, with another 25 issues planned.
More immediately exciting is that of the release of Pocket God: Journey to Uranus for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s already been available for the iPad for the past 6 months with a very positive review from Chris Nitz to entice players in. Now iPhone and iPod Touch owners can see what all the fuss is about too.
Journey to Uranus offers an interactive universe that players can explore and use their godly powers upon the inhabitants. It looks set to be a great twist on the regular Pocket God formula. There’s also the addition of a new mini-game: Quantum Entanglement. This involves hunting down all the entangled atoms that are currently floating around in space. Essentially it’s a memory game in which players have to remember the locations of each atom but it looks set to be addictively fun.
Pocket God: Journey to Uranus is available now for $0.99. iPad owners can download it for the iPhone and iPod Touch for free as it’s an universal app now.
Check out the launch video below.

It’s hard to believe it, but Pocket God is already on its 36th update. If you’ve somehow missed it, the now-classic app gives users an island populated with charismatic “pygmies,” along with myriad ways of torturing the poor souls. Fire ants, lightning, sharks – the pygmies have gone through a lot since Pocket God’s long-ago debut. They even have their own comic now, which has also received an update. But first, let’s look at the main app.
The 36th update, named “Konkey Dong,” is the last of three primate-inspired updates. I’ll let the app’s updated description speak for itself:
A new gorilla idol appears on Ape Mountain (when the banana tree is visible). Drop a pygmy into the grip of the stone gorilla, and the real gorilla, Konkey, will come and kidnap the Pygmy! If another Pygmy is around to witness, he will attempt a rescue and start the mini-game Konkey Dong. This is our biggest mini-game yet. Inspired by the old school arcade game of yore, it has 5 levels and they are as addicting as they are challenging! Tilt the device to move left or right, tap the right to jump, hold the upper left to climb up a ladder, and the lower left to climb down a ladder. Avoid rolling boulders and beetles!
That’s not all, however. In addition to the gorilla-themed additions, the main Pocket God app has also added a Japanese Skin Pack via in-app purchase and a free Fishmas Pack. The Fishmas pack includes, um, everything you need to celebrate Fishmas. Which is apparently like Christmas. But with dead fish.
Okay, moving on before the dead fish begin to smell. Pocket God Comics #4 is now out, and readers can apparently expect everything from a “half-naked Santa Claus” to Pygmy Zombies in the recent additions. Excellent!
And finally, the charismatic pygmies from the comic are also starring in a new Fishmas-themed video. Merry Fishmas, everyone, and enjoy this slew of Pocket God updates.

The App Hall of Fame (the original App Hall of Fame, not the Apple knock off) is an independent initiative launched by 148Apps that includes selection committee members from over 40 web and print publications.
Our goal is to archive the very best mobile apps by honoring only 12 applications per month. To be eligible, applications must be available for download from the App Store for at least 6 months. Applications are nominated and voted on monthly by the selection committee with the applications that get the most votes being inducted into the hall of fame.
We want you to join in on the celebration. We’ll be giving away copies of the newly inducted applications to subscribers of our mailing list later this week. Subscribe now for a chance to win.
We are very proud to announce the November inductees into the App Hall of Fame:
Oh those poor, unfortunate Pygmies. Since January 2009, the original smash hit app, Pocket God, has received 35 updates, bringing shark infested waters, dangerous volcanoes, vicious ice geysers, death inducing ghosts, and ritualistic death to the stoic island Pygmies. Very rarely in their existence have the Pygmies been given an update that didn’t involve the death of the little island natives, but the 35th update gives them something magical to behold.
A double rainbow… all the way across the sky!
The new episode, titles “Double Rainbow All The Way Across The Sky,” gives you the ability to hand draw double rainbows that the pygmies will fawn over. Instead of just using their loving eyes, the pygmies can now talk, saying things like “full on,” “what does this mean!?” and more. Their oogling looks of bewilderment have also been added to the story mode so that fans can add them to their own Pocket God stories.
Also added in the 1.35 update are some menu changes and text labels that have been put in place to help new users navigate through all the different mini-games, islands, and sandbox modes. The game has added so much in the past two years that even some of the original Pocket God players might need a refresher to catch up.
If you haven’t had a chance to pick up this App Store Top 100 mainstay, now would be a great time to jump in. With the newly updated menu system, and the culmination of two years of episode updates, Pocket God really is one of the most content packed games in the App Store. It doesn’t have a story per se, but it will certainly offer up hours of Pygmy destroying entertainment.
Longtime fans of the series will also be happy to hear that the second issue of Pygmy Peril has been released, and that the third edition of the Pocket God comic book will be out in the near future. Enjoy!

Up until now, App Store sensation Pocket God has revolved around whatever you (as the de-facto god) did to your poor pygmy subjects. The folks at Bolt Creative, however, decided to bless the pygmies with initiative of their own…and their antics and adventures are the subject of the new Pocket God Comics. Yep, that’s right. A real, honest-to-goodness comic spin-off of the famous pygmy-torture game. Let the mayhem begin.
Pocket God Comics hit the App Store on Tuesday. Your $0.99 purchase includes the first issue; later releases can be obtained through in-app purchase. The app is universal (iPhone + iPod + iPad compatible), with higher-resolution artwork on display for the iPad version. The art looks fantastic, even on a small device, and the pygmies are as entertaining as ever.
But wait! Why should the pygmy conquest be limited to the virtual world? Bolt Creative is trying to push a print comic, too. Of course, stores need to carry the Pocket God comic before you can buy it, so Bolt is staging a contest. Take a look at the blog post for full details, but essentially: print a flyer that asks the comic store to stock Pocket God. Go to comic store. Take a picture of yourself with the flyer. Give flyer to comic store staff, then email picture to Bolt Creative. Pocket God gets exposure; you get a code for a Jet Pack in Ooga Jump as well as an entry in a drawing for a $1000 Apple Gift Certificate.
Pocket God is really a stunning success story—it hasn’t left the Top 50 for over a year—and it’s really neat to see the developers branching out into the “real world.” Hurrah for pygmies!
The Pocket God team over at Bolt Creative has unveiled their latest Pocket God project, Procket God: Journey to Uranus, exclusively for the iPad. Instead of simply porting the original Pocket God game to the big screen, Bolt Creative made an entirely new entity, which will be a “set of mini-games centered around being able to take Pygmies to other worlds.” According to the Pocket Blog, “all the interactivity will focus on the strengths of the iPad, namely the bigger size, the extra screen real estate and multi-touch”.
Dave Castelnuovo, who formed Bolt Creative after being a developer for Sega, among other companies, said in a recent CNN interview that, “It’s a completely new game,” he said. “I don’t really believe in taking an existing title and cranking out an exact same clone of the game on every different console out there. If we have a really hardcore fan that has it on both iPad and iPhone, we want them to have a different experience.”
If Pocket God on the iPad takes off like the iPhone version and sells anywhere near 3 million copies, it will be hard not to consider the pygmies to be the App Store’s Mario or Sonic. Look for Pocket God: Journey to Uranus to launch sometime this fall. And don’t fret, Bolt Creative is still going to fully support the original Pocket God, and have an update called “A Pygmy A Day Keeps the Ape Away” coming very soon.
Be sure to check out the extra screen shots after the break.
