‘Brawl Stars’, ‘Toon Blast’, ‘Vampire Survivors’, and More – TouchArcade

By admin May6,2024

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It’s time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. An unusual assortment of games this week, friends. A lot of the old reliables are going longer and longer between updates, likely down to the trend of dumping a month’s worth of events into one update and then sprinkling the pieces out over the course of the month. Well, we’ve got some good ones for you to check out anyway. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly summary is just here to fill you in on the things you might have missed. Let’s go for it!

Adventure To Fate Lost Island, $4.99

This game continues to get refined with new features and tweaks, and I love to see it. In this update, we get a creature bestiary, a handy reference guide to all the monsters you meet and thrash during your lovely island adventure. It starts off rather bare bones, but as you defeat more of each enemy type its entry will get more detailed. There are a few other things in here, such as improvements to the VoiceOver support, so give it a download and check it out.

Star Warsâ„¢: Galaxy of Heroes, Free

Gosh, I hope this event is still going on. I’d hate for anyone to miss their chance to add the infamous Jar Jar Binks to their team. There are all sorts of things going on to celebrate both May the 4th and the 25th anniversary of The Phantom Menace in this game right now, and the Gungans in particular seem to be the main beneficiaries of all that. It’s really weird seeing how the general view of Episode I has changed over time. I guess the Jedi were wrong, because hate didn’t lead to suffering here but rather to appreciation? I guess time heals all wounds, unless they’re caused by a light saber.

Disney Dreamlight Valley,

Got room for one more duck? No, not Howard. I mean, he’s a Disney character now so he could conceivably show up whenever, but we’re not ready to have that discussion yet. Rather, it’s Daisy, and she wants to start up a Boutique with you. How nice! This update also includes Act II of the Expansion Pass, which sees you meeting Oswald the Lucky Rabbit on Eternity Isle. Jafar’s up to no good, and somehow this is your team to stop him. Well, good luck with all of that.

Hello Kitty Island Adventure,

No bestiary for this particular island adventure, but we’ll make do with what we get. And what we get is the Month of Meh update, spotlighting our favorite weird egg Gudetama. Look for oversized eggs and grab the yolks, because you can trade them to the Egg Shrine for some goodies. This month you can also spot the mysterious and slightly disturbing Nise-tama running around, but he’s only here for a short time so snap those pictures while you can. Also, be on the look out for birthday celebrations for Chococat and Tuxedosam. For acknowledging that I too would rather stay in bed this month, I will award this update the coveted UMMSotW award for this week.


Are we too late for this one? We might be too late for this one. I’m including it anyway, just in case. While some people are celebrating May the 4th as a force thing, this game is celebrating it as a fore thing. And a horse thing? Look, don’t ask me to make any sense out of What the Golf?, the charm of it is that there is no sense in any of it. Just go do the weird thing with the horse and the ball and all that. Have some fun. If it’s still running when you read this, anyway.

Temple Run+,

The non-Apple Arcade version of this game didn’t get updated at the same time, so they’re probably out of synch. These things happen. Anyway, it’s a spring update! Have to get those in while you can, summer’s rolling in fast in the Northern Hemisphere. At any rate, this update brings in two new runners that are season-appropriate. The Persian herbalist Sara Banyan and the Mad “Earth” Scientist Doctor Zenobios can be unlocked during this limited event, so get them while you can. Like spring itself, they won’t be around much longer. Also like spring, they’ll probably be back later. Do what you have to.

Vampire Survivors, Free

Surviving vampires is pretty difficult. I can’t remember if you actually have to survive vampires in this game, or if there are any vampire characters that are trying to survive. I don’t suppose it matters anyway. Some of the content added to this game costs money, but sometimes you get a nice free treat. This one is on the house, so to speak. It adds two new stages, two new characters, two new weapons, one new passive skill, and makes some bug fixes and performance improvements along the way. Something to do while waiting for the Contra expansion, I reckon.

Toon Blast, Free

This week’s obligatory free-to-play matching puzzle game update is Toon Blast, because it’s that kind of week. You know, the kind of week where Shaun is running a little behind and can’t afford to be as imaginative as he would like to be. A normal week. And being that it’s a normal week, this is a normal update for this game. Fifty levels and some kind of nonsense story to go with them. Something about getting lost, I don’t know. I’m sure the toons will sort it out. Alright, that should be long enough.


I’m going to be covering this in more detail elsewhere, and probably already have, but hey, why not? A new season is rolling in this week for Marvel Snap, and it’s themed around The Exiles. Cool, love The Exiles. The new cards include Blink, Nocturne, Sage, Namora, and Sasquatch. Again, look for more details in a separate story. New locations, new collectible borders, and more. One good thing about the MCU being quiet is that we get more of these interesting comics-themed updates instead of constantly having to keep up with the flow of movies and shows.

Brawl Stars, Free

Okay, this one is only technically from the last week. Like, the main update hit two weeks ago and this one just tweaks it. But I missed it, and it has Godzilla in it, so my hands were tied. I had to go back. Godzilla is up this month, by the looks of it. Aside from that cool bit, you can also look forward to a new seasonal game mode, new Brawlers, new Hypercharges, and more. Godzilla! What a world!

That about wraps it up for last week’s significant updates. I’m sure I’ve missed some, though, so please feel free to comment below and let everyone know if you think something should be mentioned. As usual, major updates will likely get their own news stories throughout this week, and I’ll be back next Monday to summarize and fill in the blanks. Have a great week!
