‘Marvel Puzzle Quest’, ‘Vigil RPG’, ‘Subway Surfers’, and More – TouchArcade

By admin Jun3,2024

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. Hey, we survived to June! Didn’t see that coming. Let’s keep it up, eh? Another unusual mix this week, with a variety of inspirations going into the various updates from the usual suspects. 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!


Galaxy Mix – Planet Watermelon, $0.99

Sometimes a muse whispers about things in my ear. Let’s call him Goseb. Anyway, this week Goseb whispered to me that his favorite merging game got a little update, so I figured I would peek in and see what’s up. Apparently Galaxy Mix has a new Time Attack mode, and that’s pretty cool. You don’t often get a whole new mode in a game like this one. So go forth, friends. Attack time. It never did you any favors.


Vigil RPG, Free

Much love to Vigil RPG, still a very fun little pick-up-and-play mobile RPG after all these years. Much love too to its developer, who has kept it alive for years with compatibility updates and the occasional new bit of content. How many years? Ten years, and in celebration of that the game is now free to try. Following the generous free portion, you can unlock the rest of the game with a single IAP. Of course, if you already own it you’re good to go. Also in this update is a new gameplay mode with tougher bosses and permadeath. There’s a whole whack of other small changes in here, so if you haven’t played in a while, why not give it a go?


Lunar Silver Star Story Touch, $9.99

It’s wild to me that after all this time, the only place you can really buy English Lunar these days is via this version. Hopefully that changes at some point, as SoMoGa seems to be adding a lot of things here that would suit a computer release at the very least. Anyway, Game Center integration is back! Remember Game Center? If you do, you’re doing one better than Apple these days. This update also fixes some sort of bad beeping behavior. I’ve never heard it, but maybe you can only hear the bad beeping if you’re bad yourself? And I’m a good boy, or so I’m told.


Subway Surfers, Free

I find it a little odd that Subway Surfers is doing what is clearly a Pride-themed event here but unlike in previous years it isn’t calling it that. Instead they are heading to San Francisco for a “cheerful celebration” filled with “the spirit of acceptance and inclusion”. Sign of the times, I guess. Riley and Lily join the playable roster, and you can get them by playing through the Season Challenge. Play the Season Hunt and you can unlock Cleo’s Blossom Queen outfit, too.


World of Tanks Blitz – Mobile, Free

Is it anniversary season in World of Tanks Blitz again? I guess it must be! Update notes would never lie to me. As usual, you can look forward to a bunch of events and rewards to celebrate. This update also includes a new branch of Italian vehicles, with four heavy tanks to add to your collection. There has also been a balance adjustment on consumables and equipment, making old tanks play a little differently from before. In good ways? In bad ways? I leave that up to you to decide.


Angry Birds Reloaded,

Angry Birds expands at a greater speed than the universe itself, and that’s impressive when you think about it as the made-up fact that it is. A new Space episode, Brass Hogs, has been added to the game. It has thirty new levels to play, and you get things like hissing steam vents and hollow brass spheres to deal with. Copper pipes too, because it’s called Brass Hogs. Well, that should keep folks busy for an hour or two at least. That’s what Angry Birds is all about, in the end.


SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit,

A new Tale of the Deep has arrived, and this time we’re dealing with Plankton’s birthday. Oh, that’s nice. I didn’t buy a present. It’s a bit awkward, but I’m trying to save my money right now in light of pending economic hardship. At any rate, SpongeBob wants to help throw a surprise birthday party for Plankton, and what SpongeBob wants SpongeBob usually gets. Assist him with that so it doesn’t go completely ca-ca.


Taiko no Tatsujin Pop Tap Beat,

A Taiko no Tatsujin update means almost without fail that we’ve got some new songs to play, and this one isn’t going to skew those stats in the other direction. Six new songs to enjoy this time, including the opening theme from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, inner universe. You also get American Patrol, ‘O sole mio, Mars, the Bringer of War, Lovely X, and Pastel Dream. A nice mix of music types there, even if the line-up is lacking a big-name tune like we sometimes see in these updates. Doesn’t really matter much, though. New music is new music.


MARVEL Puzzle Quest: Hero RPG, Free

Most people would expect that my favorite superhero is Spider-Man, and that’s a reasonable guess. But the real answer is that my favorite superhero is Spider-Man’s daughter, Mayday. The sensational Spider-Girl. The latest event in Marvel Puzzle Quest not only brings in a 5-Star Mayday Parker Spider-Girl, but also a 3-Star Mayhem. Mayhem is Spider-Girl’s clone, also known as April Parker. Call me biased, but that’s more than worthy of a coveted UMMSotW for this week. I mean, April Parker is a great deep cut. Enjoy that prize, Marvel Puzzle Quest. There are only five hundred and twenty of them in existence.


SimCity BuildIt, Free

SimCity BuildIt seems like a good way to wrap up the festivities for this week. The latest Mayor’s Pass season is called Route 66 – Summer Road Trip, and it offers structures such as the Blue Butterfly Motel, the UFO Estate, and the Cucamonga Station. There are also some time limited buildings in the form of the Pink Hippo Park and Smith Sisters Store. Build ’em up, collect ’em up, but be careful not to spend ’em up.

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!
