Although the game looks gorgeous and has some nice mobile-friendly design features like cloud saves, there are a couple things you should know about the game before you buy it.

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 23rd, 2019

Bad North: Jotunn Edition can be cruel. You never quite know where your next attack is going to come from, and--even if you’re prepared for it--things might just not go your way.

Gigantic X continues to inspire loot lust over here at 148Apps, particularly because the game has already been updated just in its second week of release.

Unfortunately, this 1.1.0 patch doesn’t bring a whole ton of new goodies with it, but it does bring some changes to the game itself, most of which are pretty welcome. See below for details:

One thing that’s in most live games, but has been missing from Gigantic X, is finally here. Daily log-ins are now a thing, and the rewards for them are nothing to sneeze at.

Until August 9, logging in daily can get you some weapon crates that drop tier 4 or 5 weapons, plus credits and crona. These rewards are surprisingly generous given that all you have to do to get them is open the game.

Last week, the mobile version of Civilization VI got updated to include the huge Rise and Fall expansion. Where previous updates to the game provided one or two new civilizations and maybe a few scenarios, Rise and Fall makes sweeping changes to the core game, to the point that it takes up an extra gigabyte of storage on your device.

Such a big expansion doesn’t come cheap though. Adding Rise and Fall to Civilization VI will cost you $30. Given such a hefty price tag, we dove deep to look at what this expansion offers to see if this add-on justifies the cost.
