Massive Updates to Aralon and Rimelands

Yeah I know I’m a bit late to the punch but with everything that has happened the past few weeks I simply was buried under mountains of work and personal stuff. Nevertheless I decided that it was worth mentioning that two of the best RPGs of 2010 have recently received massive updates, adding among other things the long awaited universal support for Rimelands: Hammer of Thor (TMA Review) and some nifty features and updates for the nearest thing to Oblivion on the iPhone – Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD (TMA Review).

I previewed Rimelands and did quite a thorough review of Aralon during the last few months and can say that both are a definite must have for any RPG fan, so if for some reason you’ve been holding out, now is a good time as any to nab one (or both); the games will surely keep you occupied for the next little while.

Rimelands: Hammer of Thor Crescent Moon Games, Rimelands: Hammer of Thor - $4.99
Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD Crescent Moon Games, Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD - $9.99

Secret of the Lost Cavern updated for iOS 4.2, individual episodes available for a limited time!

It’s Coladia’s newsweek on TMA! Shortly after the release of Destination: Treasure Island for the iPad, the devs rolled out a massive update for their first entry to the adventure scene on the App Store – Secret of the Lost Cavern. This great adventure game, redesigned for the iPhone, was originally released in 4 episodes, and later re-released as a single title (with an HD version to boot). Since then the individual episodes have been taken off the shelves, which annoyed some players who weren’t able to pick up the whole collection. Well, guess what…it’s your lucky day folks!

App Update: Instapaper Pro

Instapaper Pro, an excellent app that allows you to read saved webpages without internet connectivity (and one of my go-to apps on my iPhone and iPad), has just been updated with several new features, with the most notable being the redesign of the reading screen on the iPad version. Instead of being located at the bottom of the screen, the controls (font, brightness, favorites etc) are now at the top, similar to what you’ll find on Apple’s iPad Safari browser. Other changes specific to the iPad include:

A flurry of updates – We Rule, Space Miner: Space Ore Bust and Warpgate

Several high profile titles have just seen an update on this fine April day. First and foremost – the ngmoco freemium Farmville-style sim game – We Rule has finally been updated with loads of long awaited interface and performance tweaks, as well as a the placeholder for new buildings. I have checked it out and the game has become much more user-friendly as well as a bit quicker on the uptake on the iPhone 3G. Get it now!

Second – the absolutely wonderful and horribly addicting Space Miner: Space Ore Bust (TMA Review) has just received a massive graphics update for the 3GS and iPod Touch 3G, a whole new license level with a bunch of new equipment, new alien tech and even a new UltracORE mode difficulty (beat the game with only ONE life). In the original review, I gave it a firm Kiss; now with the additional content and improved visuals for the latest iDevices, Space Miner gets even better and is totally worth the $4.99.

And finally the amazing open-world space exploration/trading/action/tactics that hit the AppStore after more than a year in development – Warpgate – has already received an update. Miscellaneous bugs are fixed and Freeverse have added the much requested interactivity to space combat with tilt controls for movement and final-resort diversion of weapons power to shields. I am going to review it later today, but even without the update it is one of the best games I ever played on the iPhone and the improved combat system just patched the only real cons I was going to note in the review. Go get it – you won’t regret it! Or wait for my review :)

Warpgate Freeverse, Inc., Warpgate – $4.99
