‘Super Senso’ 1.8 Update Adds More Challenges, Med-Bot and Saboteur Units, and More

‘Super Senso’ 1.8 Update Adds More Challenges, Med-Bot and Saboteur Units, and More

If you’ve been enjoying the Advance Wars-like Super Senso [Free], you’ll be glad to know that Update 1.8, which has just gone live, adds more content to the game. The new update adds more Challenges to the game, since they appear to be fan-favorites. Challenges are one-turn puzzles and can be quite the brain teasers. There are also 3 new advanced tutorials that should help new players get the hang of the game faster. More interestingly, we are getting two new units: Med-Bot and Saboteur. Med-Bots have weak attacks but heal adjacent allied units at the start of both yours and the opponent’s turn. Saboteurs are fast infantry units with the ability to evade the first instance of damage each turn.

The update is also adding a new map called Twin Temples I, reworking Warp, improving the UI, and also throwing in plenty of bug fixes and optimizations that you can check out here. Let me know what you think about the new update and new units in the comments below.

Nintendo E3 Recap: ‘Pokemon’, ‘Rocket League’, ‘Super Mario Odyssey’, ‘Zelda’ DLC, and More

Nintendo E3 Recap: ‘Pokemon’, ‘Rocket League’, ‘Super Mario Odyssey’, ‘Zelda’ DLC, and More

Nintendo held its E3 presentation on Tuesday morning, June 13th, and while it was a scant 25 minutes, it came with some intriguing looks at future titles and a few vague announcements. As far as the new stuff goes, Nintendo announced a new Pokemon RPG coming to the Switch at some point in the future, being made by Game Freak. Metroid Prime 4 is in development. New Kirby and Yoshi games, with tentative titles Kirby and Yoshi respectively, are in the works. Kirby will feature up to four characters playing at once. Yoshi features multiple Yoshis, and a sort of ‘flip-side’mechanic where you can flip between sides of the world, and launch eggs at background targets.

The first Breath of the Wild DLC was shown: “The Master Trials” will release on June 30th, featuring Master mode, Trial of the Sword, Hero’s Path mode, new armor, a Korok mask, and more. The second DLC, with some more limited details, is planned for this holiday season and is called “The Champion’s Ballad.”

Speaking of Mario hats, Rocket League is coming to the Switch later this year, and you’ll be able to get exclusive vehicles, along with new Mario and Luigi hats. Plus, there will be cross-platform online multiplayer.

There was some additional Switch news along the way. Nyko announced some new accessories. Most interesting for mobile users will be the Clip Grip Power. It will let you clip your phone to this Joy-Con grip, allowing you to easily use your Nintendo online app with your phone while playing. It will also contain an internal battery for charging the controllers, phone, or the Switch. It will also have internal storage for cartridges or microSD cards. It releases later this month for $ 24.99. Go Nintendo has a whole report on Nyko’s new Switch accessories.

TouchArcade Game of the Week: ‘Super Nano Jumpers’

TouchArcade Game of the Week: ‘Super Nano Jumpers’

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn’t necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable “best” thing. Instead, it’s more just us picking out the single game out of the week’s releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one.

These picks might be controversial, and that’s OK. If you disagree with what we’ve chosen, let’s try to use the comments of these articles to have conversations about what game is your game of the week and why.

Without further ado?


Super Nano Jumpers

While App Store featuring this week has been absolutely dominated by both Monument Valley 2 [$ 4.99] and the various Apple Design Award winners, you really need to take some time and check out Super Nano Jumpers [$ 1.99] as it’s among the best Super Meatboy-likes we’ve seen on the App Store. What makes the game unique is the way you control it, which blends auto-running mechanics with the ability to stop on a dime- even in the air.

Subscribe to the TouchArcade YouTube channel

Like Super Meatboy, Super Nano Jumpers is a difficult insta-death game with some levels that’ll have you dying over, and over, and over (and over). Practically everything you touch kills you, and the three star scoring system takes into account both how many of the coins you collect as well as how few times you die. Collecting coins and surviving is easy early in the game, but quickly gets incredibly difficult.

Your character automatically runs from the left side of the screen to the right, and by tapping the right side of the screen you jump and by tapping (or holding) the left side of the screen you stop. It’s fascinating how these controls allow you to do some incredibly precise platforming. They feel a little strange at first, particularly when you’re stopping in air. If you’re mid-jump and hold the left side of the screen, your character just stops and will fall with gravity. It’s a control scheme I really hope more games start using.

Similar to Mikey Jumps [Free], each level segment takes up the entire iPhone screen, so there’s no side-scrolling or anything else to worry about. You can see all the obstacles you need to avoid, and figure out a strategy for how to overcome them. 75 levels in all are included stretched across four worlds, and there’s even a second time trial mode to extend play time.

If you’re into difficult platformers, don’t miss Super Nano Jumpers

Out Now: ‘Monument Valley 2’, ‘Farming Simulator 18’, ‘Super Nano Jumpers’, ‘Astro Crash’, ‘The Quest – Thor’s Hammer’, ‘Pocket Claw’, ‘Art of Conquest’ and More

Out Now: ‘Monument Valley 2’, ‘Farming Simulator 18’, ‘Super Nano Jumpers’, ‘Astro Crash’, ‘The Quest – Thor’s Hammer’, ‘Pocket Claw’, ‘Art of Conquest’ and More

It’s once again time to round up all the big new releases of the week, and with the craziness that is WWDC going on and the surprise release of Monument Valley 2 pretty much clogging up all the featured spots (deservedly so, I should add) it’s actually a pretty light week compared to most. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t still a bunch of interesting things to play, so check out the full list of new releases below and let us know what you’ve got your eye on. And should anything else noteworthy slip out later than usual, you can bet we’ll let you know.

‘Super Nano Jumpers’ is Like ‘Super Meat Boy’ Meets ‘1-Bit Ninja’, Out Now

‘Super Nano Jumpers’ is Like ‘Super Meat Boy’ Meets ‘1-Bit Ninja’, Out Now

Xigma Games has today released Super Nano Jumpers [$ 1.99], a nifty 2D platformer that feels kind of like a combination of Super Meat Boy and 1-bit Ninja [$ 2.99]. You control a little blue dude, who has to make it through 75 levels full of buzzsaws, spikes, and other familiar platforming hazards. Our blue friend can only run in one direction: forward. But, this blue buddy can also stop at any time…even in mid-air! So, combined with the jump ability, you as the player have to master the timing and jump angles to make it through levels in as few deaths as possible.

It’s a rather challenging game, and it takes a bit to get used to the mechanics, but if you like trial platformers with a great pick up and play factor, this is the game for you. Plus, I’m really excited to see studios from India like the Bangalore-based Xigma Games putting out some great stuff. India is a huge market for mobile games, Eli was excited by this game when he saw it back in 2015, and I’d love to see more developers from around the world, and in markets that haven’t necessarily had a western presence, put out more quality titles that are competitive with anyone on the globe.

‘Super Sticky Bros.’ is an Ascension Platformer From the ‘Soul Knight’ Developers

‘Super Sticky Bros.’ is an Ascension Platformer From the ‘Soul Knight’ Developers

The developers of Soul Knight [Free], a rather fun top-down shooter if you haven’t checked it out, are set to release their next game on mobile. Super Sticky Bros. is a vertical platformer, played in portrait mode, where you play as, well, a sticky bro. You’re sticky enough that you can slide straight up walls, which helps because this is an ascension platformer! You’ll have to bop enemies and dodge hazards on your way up, collecting coins and hitting checkpoints. Unlike Leap Day [Free], you don’t pay in coins to unlock checkpoints, but can get shields to help you tak some damage on your way up.

Subscribe to the TouchArcade YouTube channel

Interestingly, Super Sticky Bros. will have four-player local multiplayer, so you and a few friends can ascend the endless, randomly-generated heights together. Coins can go toward shields or to unlock new characters. Don’t expect a brutal challenge: ChillyRoom intentionally has aimed this more for the casual crowd, to give them an experience that’s a bit less punishing. It hits iOS and Android officially on June 8th, but Android players can try the game out now in early access.

Magium- Text adventure

iTunes Description

Magium is a text adventure game similar to old Choose your own adventure books (CYOA), in which you play as an ordinary guy named Barry, who joins a deadly mage tournament against the most powerful mages in the world in the hopes of using the prize to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a mage himself.

As in all interactive novels, your choices will affect the story, and making wrong choices can even lead to your death. Besides the traditional choice making of regular Choose your own adventure games, Magium also has stats that you can upgrade with points that you will receive occasionally, throughout the game. These stats will be checked by the game from time to time, to see if they are high enough to allow you to perform certain actions. For example, if your ancient languages stat is high enough, you can understand what animals and monsters are saying.

‘Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo’ Hits Mobile on May 11th

If you enjoy blackjack and Street Fighter 2, then I have good news: Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo is set to hit the App Store on May 11th. The game is basically blackjack meets an homage to Street Fighter 2, with art, sound, and interface that resembles the 16-bit fighting game era. It’s a fun idea, and I enjoyed my time with it back at PAX South 2017.

So how does blackjack work in a fighting game context? Well, your goal is to have more money at the end of 10 rounds, so your betting will differ based on the context of the game. If you are down, riskier bets become part of the game, whereas safer play if you’re ahead might be part of your strategy. And you’ll be able to play online against opponents cross-platform on iOS, Android, and the already-released Steam version.

Best iPhone Game Updates: ‘Super Mario Run’, ‘Jack B. Nimble’, ‘Marvel Avengers Academy’, ‘Vainglory’, and More

Best iPhone Game Updates: ‘Super Mario Run’, ‘Jack B. Nimble’, ‘Marvel Avengers Academy’, ‘Vainglory’, and More

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. It’s a hot one this week, friends. Lots of great games got updates, some of them regulars, others appearing in this feature for the first time. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper Social [Free], the watchlist in the TouchArcade App [Free], or by participating in the TouchArcade forums, but this weekly summary is here to fill in the things you might have missed. Let’s dig in!

MARVEL Avengers Academy

MARVEL Avengers Academy, Free A new Marvel movie is upon us, and that means a whole bunch of tie-ins with the games. If you don’t pay attention to such things, the movie in question is Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2. Now, the Guardians are no strangers to Avengers Academy. The game’s first real event was Guardians-themed, after all. Groot Bobblehead, am I right? Since long-time players have had a chance to get the whole team already, this event is going to be leaning on the new characters and characters drawn from the comics. But new players need the main team, so this first week is kind of a fun little catch-up event for people to fill out the core line-up.

Siralim 2 (RPG / Roguelike)

Siralim 2 (RPG / Roguelike), $ 4.99 Well, here it is: the final content update for Siralim 2. The first game also got an update in the last week, so make sure to check that out, too. As for this one, it includes a cool New Game Plus mode with lots of interesting options to play with. It also adds Daily Realms to the game, and 40 new skins drawn from the original version of Siralim. From here on out, it’s just going to be the odd maintenance update and bug fixes for Siralim, but it certainly had a good run. I look forward to the next Thylacine game, sure to feature in these articles.

Phoenix II

Phoenix II, Free Phoenix 2 is on the march to its first anniversary, and it’s apparently going to be getting monthly updates leading up to that momentous occasion. This update includes Phoenix Revives, a new item that will allow you to continue once per use. You can earn them in-game or buy them in-shop. Or just don’t die. You can do that, can’t you? I have faith in you. But if my faith is misplaced, well, Phoenix Revives are there for you. The bad guys have some new weapons, and the mission generator has gotten some tweaks as well. Other than that, it’s a grab-bag of visual tweaks and bug fixes.


TypeShift, Free TypeShift is built to be expanded on, and here’s a new expansion! A new extra-tough clue puzzle pack is available for purchase for those who enjoy the crosswords-style variation of the game. Those who enjoy the standard puzzles will be happy to see some new packs, both free and paid. This update also reduces the frequency at which ads appear, and fixes up some bugs and typographical errors.

Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run, Free I can think of all kinds of great ways this game could be expanded on, but Nintendo seems to think doubling down on the Toad grinding is the way to go. As such, the maximum Toad cap has been raised to 99,999, and a bunch of new buildings have been added that require you to collect more and more Toads. This update also improves the player icon display, allowing you to show off your Miitomo fashions. Game Center achievements have been added, and you can now find your friends from you Nintendo Account. It’s…it’s Mario time?

Jack N' Jill

Jack N’ Jill, Free Jack N’ Jill is cute. Not much more I can say about it than that. Very cute. This update adds a Mirror Mode, letting you play the stages flipped. It also adds the ability to play as Jill, so now the title is super-accurate. It also fixes the restart bugs that were plaguing a bunch of levels. So hey, mirror the levels, play as Jill, and as far as your eyes and muscle memory know, you’re doing a whole new game. Pretty sweet for a free update, if you ask me.


Fieldrunners, $ 2.99 With the 32-bit Appocalypse seeming like a dead certainty at this point, a lot of older games are going to have to update or get off the pot, so to speak. While I don’t blame any developer who chooses to sunset a years-old game at this point, I’m always happy to see any game take the necessary steps to stick around for a bit longer. Fieldrunners hasn’t had an update in ages, but it’s all ready to go once more. Not just with 64-bit support, but also support for larger screen sizes, improved framerates and loading times, UI improvements, some added touches to the presentation, and a whole bevy of bug fixes that were likely piling up over the years. Well done, Subatomic!

The Sandbox Evolution - Craft a 2D Pixel Universe

The Sandbox Evolution – Craft a 2D Pixel Universe, Free From Shrek to the speedway, Sandbox Evolution refuses to rest. This update adds some vehicles to the game. There are six new ones in total, including a tank, a battlemech, an attack helicopter, a submarine, some sort of weird contraption called the Reaptire, and a hazard bathysphere. See what kind of fun adventures you can come up with using those! Possibly involving Shrek? I’m not going to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, but if you miss the chance to put Shrek in a bathysphere, I’m probably not going to ever forgive you.

MARVEL Future Fight

MARVEL Future Fight, Free Yes, it’s the Guardians here, too. Also in Contest of Champions, but I’m not giving Marvel three precious spots in this round-up. So, Future Fight. There are new uniforms to collect for Gamora, Peter Quill, and Rocket. Unrelated to the Guardians movie, Sharon Rogers has a new costume. Some new characters are available, too. Mantis is in the new film, Agent Venom is not in the film but somehow ended up on the Guardians team in the comics, and Whiplash… Whiplash doesn’t really have much to do with anything. Please note this is Iron Man 2 Whiplash, not comic book Whiplash. Yes, there was a second Iron Man movie. I thought they skipped right to part 3 too, but there you go. Next thing you know someone will tell me there’s a Thor 2. Ha!


Vainglory, Free Hey, it’s new hero time for Vainglory. This time, our new character is Baptiste. He’s probably into death metal and dark poetry. Anyway, he uses fear as a weapon, scaring enemies into submission and making them flee from sheer terror. Anyone silly enough to stick around will get their souls reaped and turned into delicious cheeseburgers for Baptiste. This update also includes some new skins, adjusts a few points of the UI, and adds a couple of new settings.

Dungeon Rushers

Dungeon Rushers, $ 2.99 I liked Dungeon Rushers a little. I didn’t like it a lot, but I definitely liked it a little. So I think it’s pretty cool that there is an update adding some new stuff. The new stuff in question includes a never-ending tower (aww-aww-awwww, aww-aww-awwww, awww-awww-awwww) and 10 new skins to snatch up for your characters. That’s all, but hey, if you’re only going to have a two line update, it doesn’t hurt to have one of those lines include an endless mode.

Despicable Me: Minion Rush

Despicable Me: Minion Rush, Free I don’t know about you all, friends, but I’m kind of feeling like the whole 1980s nostalgia thing is played out. That Despicable Me is wholly embracing it for its new film only makes me more certain of that feeling. Oh well, it is what it is. Hey everyone! Neon colors! Random geometric shapes that kind of remind you of your old Trapper Keeper! Blue and pink, but mostly pink! Cassette tapes! Ha ha, what even ARE those things, am I right? Okay whatever, collect the tapes, grab some sneakers, and pick up HILARIOUSLY big cell phones. Try to get yourself that snazzy Stereo Costume so that you can see a Minion wearing 1980s regalia and carrying a boom-box. That… that might be the worst thing I’ve ever written about, friends. I need a special award for this. For this update, Minion Rush earns the Best iPhone Game Updates Amazing Spider-Man Sins Past of the Forever award. Ugh, where’s the eye bleach?

Temple Run 2

Temple Run 2, Free Temple Run 2 just got a really huge update not that long ago, so you probably shouldn’t expect a whole ton of new content this quickly. But you do get a couple of new runners to try out, along with a new artifact set that sees you collecting Lost Jungle Manuscripts. Have you tried asking the waiters at the Lost Jungle Denny’s? Just a thought. There are also some new Global Challenges you can join in on to try and score some prizes. No bigs.

Jack B. Nimble

Jack B. Nimble, $ 1.99 When Jack B. Nimble shows up for a party, he shows up in style, my friends. We’ve been waiting a while for this update, but it’s packed with so much stuff that it’s hard to even muster a mild moan. Here’s all the new stuff: achievements, six characters, three levels, three music tracks, seven color schemes, various updated screens, a new app icon, an in-game manual, some other UI tweaks, and even a secret or two to sniff out. Here’s how much the developer is charging for all of that: $ 0.00. What? Yep, this giant bag of goodies is a free update. This is a slam dunk for the UMMSMotW award this time around.

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!

GungHo Release New ‘Super Senso’ North American Launch Trailer, Showcasing the Characters at Your Disposal

GungHo Release New ‘Super Senso’ North American Launch Trailer, Showcasing the Characters at Your Disposal

Super Senso [Free] has undoubtedly been one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2017, and for good reason. While the game has been in soft launch since late 2015, and we have caught numerous glimpses of the title at events such as PAX in the subsequent fifteen months or so, Super Senso only released on the North American App Store last Thursday, with a worldwide release still in the pipeline. Initial impressions on our forum thread have been generally positive, with the futuristic fast-paced real time strategy action going down well with the iOS community at large, and such fervent pre-release hype being met by those eagerly anticipating an Advanced Wars-esque alternative on the App Store. To celebrate its long-awaited North American launch, publishers GungHo have released a brand new trailer for Super Senso, which showcases the numerous different characters that can be encountered in the game, as well as a taste of the title’s eccentric humor.

Subscribe to the TouchArcade YouTube channel

While I cannot condone every comedic device used – does anyone actually still use #YOLO in 2017? – the new launch trailer for Super Senso certainly emphasises its ridiculous production values, and goes some way to position it as a turn based strategy alternative to App Store titans such as Hearthstone [Free] and Clash Royale [Free]. Amidst a dystopian setting of mercenary-for-hire company Senso Arms Incorporated, fictional CEO Max Chowderman introduces numerous classes of characters within Super Senso. Particular highlights include The Mastermind, who can swap positions with other units on the battlefield, as well as the basic yet purr-fect Cat-At-Arms, who is simply a ‘cat who has been trained to murder people’. This new Super Senso trailer not only helps to demonstrate both the significant character variation between the units, but also how their capabilities lead to numerous different strategies on the turn based battlefield. Watch the trailer above for additional details, download the game if you’re in lucky enough to be in one of the initial launch regions, and check out our forum thread for more discussion on Super Senso.
