iPhone, Mobile

Whether it’s the announcement of new content, or a new game, we’ve got you covered for the latest in iPhone gaming news. Today, we’re going to discuss the new content now available for Chuck Gnome from Triplepoint Client Movable Sprites along with the official release date that is now set for Virtual City on iPhone.

Chuck Gnome Gets Awesome New Content

We’ve already covered the basics of Chuck Gnome in detail, and the developers promised new content coming soon. Now, this new content has been delivered in the form of a new episode, new mini-game, new achievements, new targets and new music.

This new episode is called “Tomb of the Pharaoh” and has Chuck traveling to ancient Egypt complete with Anubis statues and the Sphinx. Bat Attack!, the new min-game has Chuck launching himself into a spooky world with Vampire Bats and dragons galore.

“We added the graphical indicators because it was the most requested feature from our fans,” said Steve Tompkins, Co-founder of Movable Sprites. “We know our fans will enjoy this new episode and we hope they continue to share their feedback so we can keep delivering what they want.”

This new content is free to download if you previously purchased the game, just update the App in the App Store. If you don’t own Chuck Gnome, you can grab it here while it’s still on sale for a limited time for 99¢.
