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 :)
