Best iPhone Game Updates: ‘Diablo Immortal’, ‘Ridiculous Fishing EX’, ‘AFK Arena’, ‘Royal Match’, 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. An odd mix of games this week, but not one I dislike overall. I think there’s something here for just about anyone’s tastes, so I hope you enjoy giving it a looksie as you enjoy your holiday (if you’re in a country celebrating one) or your coffee (if you’re at work like me). 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!

PiKuBo - 3D Nonogram Puzzles, Free PiKuBo is the 3D Picross game we all need right now. Okay, the one that Picross fans need right now. So it’s very cool to see an additional level pack already arrive so soon, giving us thirty-six new puzzles to solve for a mere buck. This update also adds a very handy new button that takes out all of the blocks marked with a 0, a time saving exercise if there ever was one, and lets you disable the timer if that’s your druthers. Not bad, and I’ll be looking forward to more puzzle packs in the future.

Diablo Immortal, Free Alright, let’s see what’s going on in this latest update for Diablo Immortal. We’ve got some new events in the form of the Deluged Plane & Tempest Trial Dungeon, some returning events like Conqueror and Trial of the Hordes, and some spiffy Polar Grakkinskin cosmetics. It also sets up the pieces for the upcoming new Battle Pass season, Arcane Calamity, which goes live next week. Bug fixes and performance improvements? Yes, there are a few.

Tamagotchi Adventure Kingdom, Tamagotchi isn’t keeping up with Kitty, but what else is new? No one keeps up with Kitty. But here is how Tamagotchi is trying this time. A limited time event that has you searching for Lost Love Letters! Daily rewards! Daily Royal Trials! Royal Tickets you can trade for rare decorations and to help complete quests! That’s all! Let’s move along to the next game now!

WHAT THE CAR?, The wacky car game has updated again. I promised not to do the bit with the name anymore, so let’s just get to the info. This is actually a major update, adding new cars, new levels, a new world to explore, new challenges to complete, a sandstorm, some punk bears, and a new building block so you can make your own sandstorm levels. You can also now play daily levels with other players via ghost data. You know, I think I’ll get the coveted UMMSotW out of the way early this week. This is a great update, it deserves it. WHAT THE CAR?! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?

Solitaire Stories, Again I feel this app is jumping the gun in announcing a season change, but okay. Summer it is, Solitaire Stories. This update brings us an intriguing new story titled Durango Joe, plus three new events: Grand Prix, Mercury, and Groove Ship. I really like the sound of that last one in particular. We could all use a bit more groovin’ these days, I think. Yes, I like the sound of it so much that I will not penalize this game for trying to rush summer in. This is going to be a terribly hot one, let’s keep it at bay as long as possible.

BEAST: Bio Exo Arena Suit Team, BEAST (Bilbo Enters A Sushi Tournament) has a new season, its fifth one if we’re to trust the update notes. That means there’s a new character, and he’s… hoppy to see you! Ha! You see, he’s a frog! So he’s… he’s hoppy! Phew. I better have a sit-down after that knee-slapper. Anyway, Splash the street artist frog. He looks cool. There’s also a new map background, some new rewards, and a bevy of bug fixes and optimizations to enjoy in here. Wheeeooh, “hoppy“. I’ll have to tell that one to Mrs. Musgrave when I go home tonight.

Ridiculous Fishing EX, Wow! An update for Ridiculous Fishing? I’m not used to getting updates for Vlambeer games. What a treat! This update adds the Garbage Patch to the game, a spiffy new level with a new boss to fight. Yes, that means some new mechanics to learn. Cool. There are also more than ten new fish to catch and add to your Fish-o-pedia, a new Trash-o-pedia for tracking the garbage you’ve collected, and some new weapons and tools to make use of. Yes, we now have a Flamethrower. That’s… hot, man. Outstanding. I don’t have any of the usual awards left, but I can give this the semi-coveted UMMBRotW award as a consolation prize.

Real Racing 3, Free A Real Racing 3 update usually means more cars, and that’s not going to change this time around. What’s on deck? The Ferrari 499P, the Oreca 07 LMP2, and some chances to earn the Ferrari 488 GTE and McLaren Senna GTR via some Flashback events. Oh, and if you fully upgrade your Lotus Emira (you have one, right?), you’ll unlock its brand-new Exclusive Series! I’m sure all of this will be easily obtainable, but you might want to fire up the game and check because I am occasionally wrong. Sometimes.

Royal Match, Free Okay, time for the obligatory free to play matching puzzle game update for this week, and I’ve decided we’ll check in on the miserable King Robert in Royal Match. You get the usual content drop here, with one hundred new levels to play. There’s a new area, the Lightroom, and I suspect the foolish monarch will find some way to get in trouble in there. Well, there it is.

AFK Arena, Free We’ll wrap things up this time by taking a peek in on the latest update to AFK Arena. You can tell this game has stepped back a bit since the launch of its sister title, but it’s still getting some good stuff to dig into. There’s a new Mauler hero, Villanelle – Shadow Scorpion, and a new event called Dragon’s Gift. There’s also a new building, B8, in the Oak Inn. With this, you can now edit up to eight buildings. Sure, that’s adequate.

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!
