Dragon Hills [$1.99] busted onto the scene just about a year ago, and took the whole "diving in and out of the ground eating people and destroying things" gameplay first popularized by Death Worm [$2.99 / Free] and gave it the lovely style and personality that developer Rebel Twins is known for. While the game was quite enjoyable upon release, it never received any new content afterwards, which is a surefire way to be forgotten about in the tough App Store environment. Well, upon its one year anniversary, Rebel Twins has prepared a hefty update for Dragon Hills which will add new playable dragons called "King of Fire" and "Worminator", a new Pirate-themed environment, new enemies, and more. Check out the trailer for the new update.

As I mentioned, it can be tricky for a game to stay on the minds of gamers in the midst of overwhelming options on iOS without frequent updates. I was pretty obsessed with Dragon Hills when it came out last year, but it eventually ended up living a sheltered life in a folder somewhere on my device like so many games before it. After hearing about this new update I dove back in and remembered just how damn fun Dragon Hills is, and silently cursed myself for not playing it more. If you're in a similar boat, or perhaps missed out on it before, definitely give Dragon Hills a download, especially with all the new content set to hit the game next Thursday, April 7th.
