Australian dev Halfbrick has revealed that Fruit Ninja has been downloaded 300 million times on mobile devices. The studio released the impressive statisic to celebrate the game's two-year stint on the App Store, during which time it has risen above its peers to become the second-most downloaded app on Apple's mobile marketplace.
2D tower defence title Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia has received a substantial update, which adds new enemies, maps, and items to the popular genre mash-up. Battle-hungry commanders will be delighted to find a new challenge in the form of the Sanctuary map. While you're surveying this fresh environment, you'd best keep your eyes peeled for a new enemy type: the ominously named Bone Rider.
