‘Jetpack Joyride 2’, ‘Tiny Tower’, ‘Genshin Impact’, ‘stitch.’, and More – TouchArcade

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. Hm, a bit of an unusual week. The service games are on their usual schedules, but it’s a little dry outside of that. Well, I’ve managed to put together a nice list for you to look over while you sip your tea 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!


Marvel Contest of Champions, Free

Two new Champions join the fight in this update, and both demonstrate how deep this roster has become over time. Northstar is of course part of everyone’s favorite Canadian superhero team, Alpha Flight, and has a solid array of super powers that make him a great fit for a game like this. The other new character is Arcade, best known for 1992’s masterpiece game Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade’s Revenge. He’s the one who was getting the revenge. You wouldn’t normally think of him as a hands-on fighter, but if you underestimate a man who calls his theme park Murderworld, you’re probably going to have a bad day. New events and quests come with them, giving you plenty to do if this game is your jam.


MARVEL SNAP, Free

You know it’s one of those weeks when I feature more than one Marvel game, but this is how it is today. Marvel Snap‘s latest season kicked off, based on the Eternals of all things. A handful of new cards joining the game along with two new locations, and the update also packs in some new features and balance adjustments with it. So yes, if you’ve been jonesing to add some of the Eternals to your deck of choice, that’s now a thing you can do.


Tiny Tower: Tap Idle Evolution, Free

Tiny Tower tends to flit from one event to the next these days to keep the players tapping, and instead of going for a specific holiday-themed shindig this time around, the developers have opted to do an ice cream thing. Collect ingredients by completing missions, craft treats, and get prizes. Spend a lot of money and you’ll get even more prizes! That’s this game now, but it’s been this way long enough that no one really cares.


Genshin Impact, Free

I suppose I have to give out the coveted UMMSotW award to something this week, and I’ll do it right now just to get it done. Genshin Impact‘s latest update, An Everlasting Dream Intertwined, is now available. There are three new characters, a new gameplay element in the form of the Imaginarium Theater, some new events and stories, three new weapons, and the now-expected addition of new cards to the Genius Invokation TCG. Really a typical update for this game, but it’s wild to think just how much this offers for free at this point in time.


NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition,

You know, I would laugh if one of these GOAT updates just went ahead and added a goat to the game. Like, the barnyard animal. I think it would be funny, and I’m told I have an excellent sense of humor. Anyway, this update adds eight GOATs and zero goats. You get Derrick Rose, Trae Young, James Worthy, Clyde Drexler, Kevin Garnett, Ben Wallace, Damian Lillard, and Kevin Durant. Also, some bug fixes. Cool to see the rosters of legendary players filling out, but seriously, think about the goat thing. Maybe an April Fool’s joke next year?


stitch.,

A little stitch update for those enjoying this chill puzzler, especially people who have been digging the recently-added Play Together mode. You play the Ruby Hood story together with someone, and it’s perfect if you’ve got a younger child you want to try it with. There are some new Hoops, and a new Aquarium category to delve into. Also included in this update: the Replay Legends Leaderboard, and the new Daily Shikaku Reward Hoop and achievement. A nice update, really.


Mini Motorways,

Oh, I should have saved the coveted prize for this. Well, too late now. You get a spiffy new map in this update, taking you all the way to lovely Vancouver. The Canadian one. With that comes new achievements, daily challenges, weekly challenges, and city challenges. There are some bug fixes and improvements, as you would expect. The UI also got a few little tweaks, which is always appreciated even in games where the UI is already 10/10. If you have Apple Arcade, give this game a go. If you don’t… well, I don’t know. I’ll let you solve that problem as your homework for this week.


Jetpack Joyride 2,

Jetpack Joyride 2‘s updates are always a bit interesting to me, because it’s like seeing the version of Jetpack Joyride from an alternate universe where it didn’t monetize a perfectly good game into… well, we all know how it is. So what do we get here? A couple of new events, for starters. The Pixel Invasion and Hunting of the Lost Skulls events will give you something to mess around with for a bit, and you even get a cool new power-up in the form of the Toxic Breath. A couple of new arcade modes mirror the themes of the events, and some bug fixes and performance enhancements round things out.


The Simsâ„¢ FreePlay, Free

I hope you’ve played plenty of Yakuza 0 to warm up, because the latest update to The Sims FreePlay has you building and decorating your own cabaret club. Baka mitai. The Pride Month and Juneteenth packs are back, and you can claim them to add some new hairstyles and decorations to your collection. Some improvements have also been made to the UI, freshening it up and making it more intuitive.


Royal Match, Free

Here’s our obligatory free-to-play matching puzzle game update for the week, and it’s Royal Match because we’re at that point in the article where I realize my dinner is getting cold. You get one hundred new levels to play, and brings a new area into the game. The Water Park. Yes, I can fully see how King Robert is going to get himself hurt there. Doesn’t even take much imagination. And I don’t even care. I hope he dies. He’s an incompetent monarch, and I sure didn’t vote for him.

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!
