SEGA’s Super Monkey Ball franchise was just past its iOS popularity apex when they launched Super Monkey Ball 2: (Sakura Edition) in April 2010 as a universal game on the heels of the launch of the original iPad. The classic tilt-controlled platformer, however, sat untouched after that until last Christmas when it received it’s iOS 5 makeover. Now SEGA has updated the game again adding a new multiplayer option.

Players can compete against up to three friends via Game Center, each playing a different character: AiAi, MeeMee, Baby, or my favorite, GonGon. It’s a quick race to the finish line with the option to pick the level. Random matching is also available, but the wait can be over five minutes to find a single partner.

The new mode is welcome and may help revive Super Monkey Ball 2, but what doesn’t appear updated are the graphics. Here’s hoping for Retina display graphics in a new update soon.

Top 3 App Deals for 10/24/11

Super Monkey Ball 2 – Was $2.99, now FREE
Grab the sequel to the launch title for the iPhone right here, a game our review called, “a big step up from the original.”

Elements HD – Was $0.99, now FREE
Here’s a periodic elements table for the iPad, for free, for you, right now. Get your hands on physical properties, atomic properties, isotopes, and ionization data with a tap or two. Great for students and teachers, scientists and the rest of us!

Kona’s Crate – Was $0.99, now FREE
Our reviewer called Kona’s Crate “challenging after a while and will occasionally make the player want to tear their hair out as on the 50th attempt, they struggle to get past that pesky last corner. But players will still go back for more thanks to the appropriate physics engine that means the player never feels cheated by it.”

In the world of the App Store, any kind of holiday is a great reason for developers and publishers to hold a sale, and Easter is no exception. Sega’s taking part in the festivities with an Easter sale of their own, with four titles taking part in the festivities.
