Pocket God Updated for the Final Time


The famed iOS game Pocket God was released almost three years ago, and has since been updated 47 times. Bolt Creative has now announced that the game’s final update is available today, and that it ends this God-game’s legacy with new apocalypse-themed features.

Many of you may remember getting the game on your iPod touch in the early days of the App store. The game had a fairly strong following for the first year of existence, but interest waned as the game’s updates made the game more and more cluttered.

Personally, this was my favorite iOS game for a fairly long time. I anxiously awaited the then weekly updates that added many new features for free, and still have the game on my iPhone 5 today as matter of nostalgia. The game was a new step in iOS gaming, and spearheaded a new App store marketing strategy — rewarding your players with regular content updates.

Today’s update, “Apocolypse, Ow!” contains many doomsday features and mini-games, including the final room in the Apocalypse Temple, the Closet Room, and a new zombie skin pack.

Sadly, this final update does not bring iPhone 5 support to the game, something some of us that hold onto the game for nostalgia would love to have. Maybe we’ll see that in the future, but it’s unlikely because that would require a remake of all of the game’s art, a hard task for a game such as this with so many hand-designed visuals.

Although this may be the last update to Pocket God, Bolt Creative has assured fans that the cute little pygmies will be returning next year, including in the already announced spin off title, “Pocket God: The Runs,” which is said to be styled similar to Temple Run.

Remember Pocket God?

Harbor Master / Pocket God crossover!

If you’re like me, you love getting updates for applications you buy. Firstly, because it shows you that the dev is working hard on the app to improve it for current and new customers. And secondly, because new stuff is fun!

Two weekly updated apps in the App Store, Pocket God and Harbor Master, have made a deal with each other. They have used features from EACH OTHER’S gameplay in the other developer’s app. Very clever idea, and it does work.

Pocket God recently introduced minigames into their app. And to add to the collection: A Harbor Master style game?! Yes. If you get your Pygmies under water, and lift up and drop the new Anchor, piranhas will come, and you have to guide them to the other side of the screen, similar to the gameplay in Harbor Master!

Vice versa, if you hold the Harbor Master logo in their app, you activate Pocket God mode! Which involves the Pygmies (I won’t give too much away!)

So thanks to Bolt Creative and Imangi Studios for this! Very nice couple of updates! If you haven’t already got these games – WHY NOT? They’re both $0.99 and available with a quick search on the App Store
