Huge Update Comes To Duet, Adding 48 New Stages

Posted by on July 29th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

We loved minimalist survival game, Duet, when it was first released last October so we’re pretty sure a forthcoming update for it will make it all the sweeter.

This Thursday you can enjoy the Epilogue Update, which promises to include 48 new epilogue stages, a new storyline, new game features, plus 4 brand new musical remixes.

The original release included 50 stages, so this update very nearly doubles the content already there, and it’s entirely free.

Duet is available now from the App Store priced at $2.99. The update is set to hit the store this Thursday.

The Blockheads, the open world exploration and survival game from Majic Jungle, just got a big new update. The new update brings a host of new building and structure features, including trade portals, server lists, scorpions, death, and a whole lot more.

We had an opportunity to review The Blockheads in early 2013, and liked it a lot. The Blockheads is available on the App Store for free (with optional in-app purchases).

No matter how many times you put them down, zombies just won’t stay dead. Activision has launched their latest update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies and this one is a doozy. The team has ported over the popular “Ascension” map from consoles and added enough goodies to keep you blasting away at the undead hordes for hours.

The new map is set in a Cold War-era cosmodrome overrun with zombies and teeming with traps. Even more dangerous than the typical enemies are zombie monkeys which can swoop in and steal your perks as they maul your face off. Just remember that these monkeys are evil and you should have no trouble pulling the trigger.

The good news is your arsenal is getting an upgrade, too, and now you can deal death with the Thunder Gun, Matroyshka dolls, and Gersh Device. Players who like to really get up close and personal will also enjoy the inclusion of the Sickle. It’s the most fun you’ll ever have defending Mother Russia from reanimated rotting corpses.

Microcraft is something of an oddity. It’s a fan-made “remake” of a port of a Notch-made knockoff of one of the most popular indie games of all time. Wow, that was intense.

The game itself functions much like a top-down Minecraft, with a few other key differences. While surviving assaults by vicious monsters and crafting items from wood and stone are still a major factor, there’s not much in the way of building. So while players can (and should) explore the world and create helpful tools and weapons for themselves, they can’t construct a fortress to live in. Kind of a shame, but making something like that from this perspective would undoubtedly be tough to pull off.

With several “mobs” to fight, a number of different environments to explore and a day/night cycle (not to mention all the crafting), I think Microcraft should make for a good time. Whether or not it stays on the App Store for very long is up in the air at this point since it does share many a similarity to Mojang’s runaway train of a game, as well as Notch’s Ludum Dare spin-off, but I’d like to think that it’s different enough to earn a permanent place among the other hundreds of thousands of titles up there.
