Terraria's holiday update - Although the mobile versions of Terraria are way behind the PC release in terms of content, a new Android and iOS update looks to add a few fun things to make Christmas more festive. Playing in an existing world, you now have a chance to get ornaments when chopping down trees, used for summoning Elfa, a new Christmas pet. Mobs also drop presents from time to time, because gift giving rocks. And if you make a new world you'll open up even more holiday possibilities!
Cut the Rope 2 coming soon - It's been teased a bit in the past, but ZeptoLab has finally announced that Cut the Rope 2 will be available on iOS December 19th. The sequel adds a lot of brightly colored features to the series, including Om Nom's friends who serve as power-ups. Roto, for example, is a little helicopter that hovers through levels and grabs candy to serve it to Om Nom, and Toss is a springy monster who bounces things upwards. We're excited to see what this new installment in the Cut the Rope series will offer!
Tic Tactics spruces up an oldie - From the developer behind Bag It!, Tic Tactics is a gorgeous mobile reimagination of the classic Tic-Tac-Toe formula set to a stronger tactical theme. Take turns making moves on a 9x9 grid, placing Xs and Os one by one. You capture small grids by making three in a row, but the catch is where you place your mark is determined by where your opponent placed theirs. It's essentially a portable version of Tic-Tac-Toe-Ception, but with a greatly beefed-up visual presentation.
