Back in August of last year, Daylight Studios brought their quirky simulation game Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! [$4.99]from desktop to mobile, tasking players with creating a successful weapon shop from the ground up and expanding it across a wacky land of potato people while providing adventurers with the weaponry they need for their various quests. While the game had a dedicated fan base on desktop that loved having a version to play on the go, many wondered whether any of the additional content released for the desktop version would ever make its way to the mobile game. Well, today Daylight has announced that the DLC pack titled Spud Tales: Journey to Olympus will be arriving on both iOS and Android this Friday, January 19th at a price of $1.99.
What exactly are Spud Tales? As Daylight describes, “Spud Tales are missions that place you in various scenarios with different end goals, objectives, and difficulty levels. The aim of the game is to complete all the objectives of the specific scenario. Scenarios will be a lot more difficult to complete than an ordinary play-through, so be weary of your $tarch and managerial decisions!” The Journey to Olympus tale in particular follows Herclueless, the hapless son of Zeus, as he attempts to forge a weapon “worthy of a God” and punch his ticket back into Olympus.
In addition to the DLC content, this update to Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! will also add full screen support for the iPhone X as well as iCloud integration so you can transfer your game progress between devices. You may remember that Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! had a bit of a rocky launch on iOS when it first arrived last year, as it was released in separate iPhone and iPad versions. The developers eventually did make the original iPhone-only version Universal so it could also play on the iPad, but only in a weird letterboxed way that didn’t match up to the true iPad version of the game.
They’ve since sorted that out and there’s now just one Universal version of the game that displays properly on both iPhone and iPad devices, and they’ve also squashed all the strange crashing and progress saving issues that plagued that initial release. It’s a really cool game and you can read a lot more impressions about it in our forums, and this Friday it’ll get even better with the new expansion content arriving as an update for both the iOS and Android versions of Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?!
