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.
