Ultra Blade ($2.99) from Immortal Rogue and Blast Waves developer Kyle Barret on iOS and Android is set to get another big update this week. If you missed its debut, we featured it as our Game of the Week when it released and I included it in our best mobile games of 2023 (so far) feature. Read that here. Ultra Blade has you taking on endless hordes of enemies with thousands of hero and blade combinations with unique abilities and looks. This Thursday, the Halloween update goes live bringing in new game modes, enemies, challenge levels, and a lot more. The highlights are the Spire Mode that makes it into a Vampire Survivors-like experience and the the roguelike Journey Mode. Watch the new update in action below:
