Hello everyone and welcome to the week! It’s time again to look back at the notable updates over the past seven days. This time I have an unusual mix of titles on the list. Well, there are a few familiar faces, but for the most part, this is a fresh mix. Exactly this week, I suppose. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself by participating in the MCM Gaming forums. This weekly round-up is just here to let you know about the things you may have missed. Here we go!
Templar Battleforce Elite, $ 9.99 Somehow I missed this last week so I’m including them this time. Yes, it’s not an update from the last seven days. But I’m the law here, so it’s in. There are four new capstone relics in this update: a new blade, a new incinerator, a new repeater, and a new Leviathan rifle. Cool stuff. This update also improves support for the iPhone X family of devices. Since this is the game’s first update in over two years, it also fixes a large list of bugs. Not much in terms of new content, but I’ll take any excuse I can get for loading this old favorite.
PicoPico – 8-Bit Retro Games, Free A new update to PicoPico usually means new games are added to its library, and this time around, it actually does. Four more MSX games join the roster: Compile’s Bee & Flower and Aqua Polis SOS, Megalopolis SOS and Devil’s Haven by Nisso. Very simple games, but still very fun. Also new in this update is the ability to play a selection of games by viewing an ad. You won’t have access to the entire library this way, but it will open several more titles for those who don’t have a subscription. Note that you can only use it to play the games, not any additional features like the Score Attack Modes. To this end, there is a new tab on the games page where you can see at a glance which games are free to play.
The Greedy Cave, $ 0.99 The Greedy Cave’s latest update features a few new pieces of delicious content for players to enjoy. There is a new hero, the elf. How did the game go for so long without an elf character? Well, it’s fixed now. There is also a new pet in the form of the flower fairy. However, don’t let fairies hear you call them pets. There is a new visual system that can also be accessed from the tavern. Finally, some bug fixes and optimizations were made. Not that bad.
MARVEL Strike Force: Squad RPG, Free As always, this Marvel Strike Force seed updates a number of things that may not be available immediately, but will be available soon. Three new playable characters will be joining the game: Colleen Wing, Misty Knight, and an original character named Kestrel. There are also some new costumes, but most of them come with limited-time events. These costumes include Captain Marvel (Verse), Thor (Siege), Nick Fury (STRIKE Anniversary), Elektra (Modern), Scarlet Witch (WandaVision ’50s), and Vision (WandaVision’ 50s). The last two sound very cool. There are also a few other additions and a number of bug fixes. So stop by and try everything out if you haven’t played in a while.
Toy Blast, Free Here’s our mandatory free matching puzzle game update for the week. This time it’s Toy Blast, chosen just because I didn’t feel like looking for anything else. There are fifty new levels as always and the theme seems to relax in a zen garden this time? I mean, that’s what people get from these matching puzzle games, so I think that’s appropriate. Will that stuff actually show up in the game? Someone who has already played through the 5,000 levels in the game will let me know, right?
The Seven Deadly Sins, Free Sometimes collaboration is so strange that I just have to include it. This is what it looks like when the seven deadly sins mistake it for … strange things? Alright Elf, Will Byers, Mike Wheeler and Jim Hopper take part in the game as Heroes of Hawkins. They are all associated with different events and special rewards, and I suppose getting your hands on them all won’t be particularly easy. I really have to wonder how this came about. The Seven Deadly Sins is as anime as it gets and Stranger Things just doesn’t feel like it, you know, all of this anime. Well here it is. Come and get it if you want.
The King of Fighters ALLSTAR, free In the latest version of The King of Fighters Allst Ar there are some new fighters with Boss Syndrome. Boss Syndrome Krizalid and Boss Syndrome Geese Howard are now in the game, and the original Boss Syndrome fighters have been re-released. That was Boss Orochi Syndrome and Boss Omega Rugal Syndrome, for those who don’t take notes. Some new events have been added, along with some new elements. Throw in some bug fixes and performance improvements, and that’s the crowd. But what more do you really need when the lot includes Howard geese?
Pico Tanks, Free Pico Tanks seem to be pretty popular. This is fascinating considering how fundamental a concept is on which it is built. Anyway, big new update for this game. There’s a brand new weapon that you can use to call up orbital strikes. Wow, that escalated pretty quickly. Also new: individual fights. You see to get hashes done. You can do it around noon for extra cowboy authenticity if you’d like. Cowboy tank. You can now spray markers on the battlefield when standing on it. There are a number of other small changes, UI improvements, and balance adjustments. Oh, and bug fixes. They knew these had to be in there.
Birdie Crush: Fantasy Golf, Free When you need a break from Clap Hanz Golf, there is always Birdie Crush: Fantasy Golf. This latest version is a major update to the standards of the game. The biggest one is the new Magic Workshop, where you can mix and match gear to create really high quality gear. There’s a new course called Square Castle and some new FP content that allows you to exchange points for items. One character, Erin, tweaked their skills and traits to make them more competitive. Other improvements and bug fixes have also been implemented. Most importantly, user interface improvements. Everyone likes them.
Genshin Impact, Free Genshin Impact continues its quest to be the first mobile game that does not fit in the internal memory of a mobile device. Under the Light of Jadeite is the name for version 1.5 of the game, and there are a number of new things for you to delve into. There are two new characters, Eula and Yanfei. There’s a new mechanic, the Serenitea Pot. Oh, good name for that. I like that. There are two new quests and four new events that will give you some things to keep you occupied. A new weapon: the song of the broken jaws. That sounds fascinating. And there are also two new domains to play around with. I think that’s good enough for this week’s coveted UMMSotW award.
This concludes the important updates of the last week. I am sure I missed some. Please feel free to comment below and let everyone know if you think anything should be mentioned. As usual, important updates this week will likely have their own messages, and I’ll be back next Monday to round up and fill in the blanks. Have a great week!
