“It’s been wonderful to go back to Abel Township for the creation of this new season of the game,” said Naomi Alderman (co-creator and lead writer) in a press release, “We’ve got plot twists galore ahead, as Runner Five has to deal with bigger enemies, more dastardly plots, and of course the constant presence of slavering zombies eager to chomp down on human flesh.”

You can grab the updated Zombies, Run! off the App Store right now. Please note that if you’ve already purchased the Race Missions packs or Season 2, you should tap “Restore Purchases” from within the app.

While there are dozens of apps that make panoramas in the App Store, Cycloramic from Egos Ventures set itself apart by being the first to be able to take these photos by spinning itself on a table using your phone’s vibration. But today, the app is getting even better in a recent update that adds clap activation.

Previously, using Cycloramic could be somewhat hard; you had to balance the phone standing up on the table and try to press a button on the screen to start the spinning photo action. Now, in version 4.9 of Cycloramic, users will be able to start the panorama-taking process with a clap or a whistle. The update also includes the usual “optimizations.”

Flying Hamster brags that it has almost 2 million players worldwide, and I don’t see any reason to doubt that as the truth. After all, this game is about flying hamsters. It features 6 unique worlds, 35 different enemies, and 8 “freaky” weapons that you can find throughout each level. Additionally you can control the game in four different ways, allowing the player to use either on-screen controls or the accelerometer.

Flying Hamster and its HD version were both recently updated with support for 4-inch screens, iOS 7 game controllers, and Game Center. But the best part about the recent update is that both games are now completely free to download. Head over to the App Store and grab one (or both) of them now.

Frozen Synapse, a popular turn-based strategy game from renowned developer Mode 7, will become a universal app and arrive on the iPhone and iPod touch at some point later this year, according to a report from Pocket Tactics. You can get the game on the iPad right now, however, and that version has received a plethora of great reviews.

Notably, the game’s user interface is jam-packed on the PC version and it’s already clunky on the iPad; there’s just a lot of buttons and options that make the game work. It’s hard to imagine Mode 7 being able to fit all of the game’s buttons on such a small screen.

We’ll see how it works on a 4-inch (or 3.5-inch) screen when Frozen Synapse is released for the iPhone later this year.
