Best iPhone Game Updates: ‘Plants vs Zombies 2’, ‘Bacon The Game’, ‘Star Traders: Frontiers’, 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. There are a few updates coming at some point this week for those Marvel games to celebrate Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’s theatrical release, but they are not here when I am writing this. Well, next week. For now, we have a nice selection of titles to look at. 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!

Bacon – The Game, Free Okay, hear me out: this is the winner of the coveted UMMSotW award for this week. I am a fan of Bacon – The Game. I think it’s fun and hilarious. And this update is a big one, as it adds the Bacon Studio to the game. It offers a new level daily, allows you to customize your bacon and hand, and even make your own levels. That’s a rather substantial addition to an already meaty game. Ha, meaty! Quite the jest, Shaun. Alright, moving along.

Tiny Tower: 8 Bit Retro Tycoon, Free Tiny Tower keeps on rolling the dice to see if it can come up with ways to add extra hooks to the game. The latest is the new Dice Event, where you can throw some dice and win some prizes. There are also new Daily Deals, including a free one you can nab each day. That’s about it for this update, though I’m sure the next fun event is right around the corner.

Jetpack Joyride, Free Jetpack Joyride is pretty reliable about keeping the event churn churning, and I think that’s great for all of its dedicated players. At the same time, it ends up bringing back certain events so often that I wonder if those same dedicated players are even all that excited to see them roll in again. Like this one, for example. It’s just another run of the Zappy Bird event, where you have to carefully guide the Profit Bird through the zappers to earn rewards. Well, at least it’s an amusing one.

Wylde Flowers, They’re calling this the Fabulous Farming Update, so let’s see how fabulous it is. You can visit Marty to get some new animals for your farm, including alpacas, ducks, and somewhat surprising in their lack of presence up until now, pigs. I mean, that’s like the third animal you would figure would be on a farm. You can build new structures, upgrade your farm, and even guide your animals through pregnancy. The miracle of life, people. You can’t argue with that.

Cooking Mama: Cuisine!, Alright, this update is being included this article for another reason aside from the game. Cooking Mama: Cuisine has a Mother’s Day event going on with a special limited-time ingredient you can use to create some new dishes. I am including it in this article to remind all of the readers in North America, Australia, several European countries, and frankly many other places that Mother’s Day is coming up very soon! Like, not next Sunday but the Sunday after. But maybe next Sunday, depending on where you live! Just… heads-up, okay? Moms bust their butts for y’all, at least send her some flowers or give her a call or something. Thank you, that is all. On with the silly video games.

stitch., Ah, this is a cute little puzzler, isn’t it? The latest update for this game adds new Daily Shikaku puzzles to play. You can’t use hints for them, but if you can solve them you’ll unlock Shikaku Reward Hoops, which are presumably things you’ll want. There’s also a new Mythical Creatures category, so you can look forward to stitching some… you know, some mythical creatures. I probably should have planned that sentence better, but my delete key remains broken. Other than that, we’ve got some new achievements and a few accessibility improvements.

Devolver Tumble Time, Free Cult of the Lamb has been back in the news of late thanks to its recent update, and what we’ve got here is a little thing that Fork Parker likes to call synergy. The latest additions to Devolver Tumble Time are none other than the blessed Lamb and two of its followers. Unlock them and see what kind of special Cult of the Lamb-like abilities they bring to the game. Probably weird stuff. Lots of weird stuff in that game. Sacrificial stuff. Burny stuff. Meat stuff. I will not elaborate. Go play it if you’re curious. And I guess play this too. How’s that, Fork? Do I get my Ferrari?

Plants vs. Zombiesâ„¢ 2, Free Fourteen years old. That’s how old that song from Plants vs Zombies is. It’s in junior high school now. How about that? High school soon, really. Anyway, this update is running with a beach theme because apparently summer isn’t coming soon enough for these folks. There are new Ducky Tube Zombies, and that’s pretty cute. Some items are now usable across all worlds, which the developer has said will allow greater design flexibility. Sure, that sounds okay. Not sure I’m ready for summer yet, but I suppose it’s inevitable.

Toon Blast, Free Do not be alarmed, I did not forget the obligatory free-to-play matching puzzle game update of the week. It is here, and it is Toon Blast. It offers fifty new levels to play, as per usual. The title of the episode is Final Hurdle, and it’s a sports-themed thing. Really? It’s the first day of May! We’re not done with spring yet! It’s the height of spring! Enjoy the mild weather before the nasty heat and humidity arrives. Smell those flowers. Sneeze those boogers, if you have allergies. Carp diem! SEIZE THE CARP! Actually I think that means ‘carp the day’. Oh well. Just slow that summer roll, people.

Star Traders: Frontiers, $3.99 Ah, let’s go in for some nostalgia. Star Traders: Frontiers is still updating, people. The Trese Brothers do not fool around. This update mostly involves some UI improvements, balance adjustments, and bug fixes, but I just wanted to include it in here to remind folks that this game is still around and still rocks. I can’t think of a better way to finish things off this week, so we’ll leave it here.

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!
