Pocket God – Chapter 39: Challenge of the Gods! – Now Available For iOS

This is the big update the Bolt Creative, the developers, been working on. They have decided to celebrate the fact that they are nearing Episode 40 by encouraging players to go back and look again, or find for the first time, the various god powers, interactive situations, mini-games, creatures, islands, traps, etc. that they’ve been adding over the last two years!


A new Startup screen appears (and you can turn it off, if you prefer to ignore it) that has a button "View Challenges". There you can see the familiar list of icons they have created for each episode (except they had to add two from the beginning).

Tap the icon and you view the episode challenge screen. This will be where you monitor your progress for that episode. Click "Activate Challenge" and then try to complete the Challenge Tasks for that episode. They are hidden for those who don’t want the hint, but it’s there if you need it. For instance, activate the episode "A Storm is Coming" and then go practice your lightning powers! The active episode icon appears on the corner, that you can tap to go back and view your progress.

Complete all the tasks for that episode, and you will acquire a God Idol for that episode. There are 39 to collect…but once you have at least four, you can go to God Island and place them on the pedestals to open up the ancient tomb. What happens inside the tomb? Well, there’s a hint there, but you’ll have to wait for Episode 40 to find out! And anyone who reads the comic might recognize the ruins on God Island.

This is a truly excellent update and if you don’t have Pocket God already on your iOS device, you can dowload it here for $0.99.
