As we celebrate the Christmas holiday season, mobile developers are hoping to snag a bit of your time with themed content updates in many popular games on iOS, Android and beyond. Here’s a look at just a handful of the updates available, which should offer a little something for every type of gamer.
It’s time to once again celebrate the holidays in The Sims FreePlay, as a Christmas event has launched in EA’s life simulation game. Players can now decorate their homes for Christmas, and will eventually be able to complete new quests alongside Santa Claus as they work to save the holiday. This event comes with plenty of new items to decorate your Sims’ homes, and even dress your Sims (and pets) to match the occasion.
The Christmas holiday event has launched in The Simpsons: Tapped Out on mobile devices, giving players a chance to celebrate the season by collecting presents and building toys in Santa’s workshop. Springfield is covered in a blanket of snow, trees have lost their leaves, and lights adorn certain objects. This event is similar to that of this year’s Halloween celebration, as players will collect presents in bulk to unlock prizes, while also completing quests (for additional rewards) as part of a new storyline.
2K and Cat Daddy Games have announced the release of a major content update for WWE SuperCard, the collectible trading card game that sees users collecting cards representing their favorite Superstars and Divas and taking them into matches against other real players. The update adds more than 60 new cards for potential collection, new in-ring animations for cards and much more.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner (for those that celebrate it this week), and app developers are capitalizing on the holiday by giving us all something to be thankful for: content updates in popular games, from High School Story to Spider-Man Unlimited and beyond. Here’s a look at a few of those updates, available across smartphones and tablets.
First announced in July 2014, Amazon Game Studios’ Tales from Deep Space is now available to download on Kindle Fire tablets. The game takes players to a space station called Big Moon, where they’ll jump into the shoes of traveling salesman E, alongside a luggage drone named CASI. Upon arriving on Big Moon, players discover the station’s computer system is offline and E is robbed, leading players on a mission to recover E’s stolen property. Things quickly go from bad to worse for E, as his quest turns into one of discovery, surrounding the station’s mysteries.
It’s the time for sitting around the table and sharing thoughtful words in The Simpsons: Tapped Out, as a Thanksgiving update has been launched in our virtual Springfields. This update sees players completing new quests and unlocking new character costumes for some of Springfield’s most famous citizens, while Homer learns the true meaning of Thanksgiving (or maybe not).
Activision Publishing has announced the launch of Duck Commander: Duck Defense on iOS, Android and Kindle Fire devices. The game stars the Robertson’s, from A&E’s television series “Duck Dynasty,” and asks players to help the family complete tower defense levels by defeating – you guessed it – ducks (along with other forest creatures). In each of the game’s levels, players can build multiple varieties of towers, and will meet characters from the show that will help them out in different ways.
Zynga has released the newest title in its casino brand of mobile games, Wizard of Oz Slots, on the Amazon Appstore as a one-week exclusive. The game takes players to the land of Oz, and offers multiple themed slot machines featuring Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, as well as locations from the iconic film.
