New update: Journey to Uranus: Decapithon!


At last, the iPad game receives its long-awaited update.

>> Read Dave's most recent State of the Island regarding Decapithon! <<


"Decapithon" introduces a bizarre new portal for Graveyard Island, which transports pygmies to the Horror Dimension...a dimension where the walking dead terrorize the living!

Upon crossing over, you become a pygmy with an infinite number of axes at your disposal. Your job... to decapitate the zombies who cross your path, so you can make it to the end of the level. See if you can beat all eight levels; it's not all that easy!

To make your hero move back and forth, just tilt the screen. Tap the arrows in the lower corners in order to jump, and to throw your axes, you tap anywhere else on the screen!


Besides the familiar blue Zombie Pygmies who use their own flying boomerang arms as weapons, you have many other horrors to confront: the acid-spitting Moon Witch, the Zombie Pygmy-headed Vampire Bat with his eerie sonar attacks, and the boss himself, Big Booga, who has a special talent of causing fiery skulls and bones to rain down upon you. There are gates that will prevent you from going further until you've eliminated all the zombies in your midst, so your aim had better be good!

Don't despair, however: regeneration graves are dotted across the landscape to give you a health boost if you need it, and if a ghost should cross your path and you absorb its energy, you'll gain a longer life.

Cross over to this new dimension of fast-paced horror and make heads fly, just in time for Halloween! Watch the video below to see Journey to Uranus: Decapithon in action.



The reviews are already streaming in. Christopher Park at Softonic has given us a great review:

Pocket God: Journey To Uranus contains a lot of variety and the consistent updates makes the game a must-have.

Jennifer Allen at 148Apps has given an especially glowing review:

Decapithon is just the kind of game that would easily work as a $0.99 title so as a free update for owners of Pocket God, it’s an exceptional addition. It’s been touted as one of the most ambitious updates for the game yet and quite rightly so.

  7. SPOILER ALERT
    don't get angry I loved the update got to level 3 with the trees. but I've already got an idea for ep. 7 Venus since you've finally added a female pygmy or zombie It is time for normal female Pygmies.Heres the idea

    Episode Seven:
    So the world should kinda look like some kinda weird hedge garden. and you know how theres the dragon with the scythe the agebot and the statue on earth. On Venus there should be a venus fly trap that eats he pygmys when you hold them to the fly traps mouth. Then when you make the pygmies sleep they get dream bubbles which have female pygmies in them. If you tap the dream bubble one a seventh pygmie will appear but this one will be Female! you can do this as many times as you want but there can only be 7 pygmies on the island at a time.
    If there is a female pygmy on the island while the sun is out two pygmys will begin to fight for the female. therefore starting a mini game where they fight each other and show off. You can shut off the mini game and just watch the pygmys fight over her. you can get voiceovers and everything.
    Ya it will take a while but it will be worth it
    LONG LIVE ALLAN AND DAVE

  21. You guys should make an episode where you add venus and pluto and on pluto. On venus you should be able to compress and melt the pygmies and on pluto you should be able to freeze the pygmies and have a minigame where the pygmies ice skate and jump over people and do stuff

    ReplyDelete
  22. No offence but my Idea for Venus Is WAY BETTER THAN YOURS. But pluto sounds cool but seriously Venus without Females, my $#!% is better than that!!!

  23. And I have a better idea for Venus. It should be all pretty and flowery and all that. But when you tap a flower in the corner, it pops. Do that three times, and it turns into hell. There's lava instead of water, and and a devil statue on the island.

  24. I'm liking these venus ideas, but I have an easter egg I want to add for pocket god uranus: The flower on uranus becomes alive, it can be tapped and dragged anywhere, and when the head of the flower is dragged to a pygmy, the flower closes up on the pygmy making it suffocate in the flowers toxic fumes, after 3 second of screaming, the flower reopens and the poor pygmy is nothing more than a skeleton, that soon fades away. Remeber, this is just an easter egg idea! It could be added onto the next update. :-D

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have another idea, but this one shouldn't happen for awhile. It is more of an arcade style game, but you are a pygmy this time, and you are trying to escape from the gods, who are trying to kill you.
