Launched earlier this summer, Pocket Army is an enjoyable combination tower defense and role-playing game of medieval soldiers. Today, the app had its first major update, v2.0, and the new release includes lots of fun new content.

Originally packed with plenty of content for both online and offline play, Pocket Army contains dozens of levels, a slew of characters, several environments, and numerous upgrades, plus a less traditional approach to gameplay.

Pocket Army has its own interesting gameplay. Players start out by choosing their colors and gender. The first level is very simple. You send your warrior out to kill a demon. Bam. The second and third levels are also simple. They are all training levels. The game will prompt you to train soldiers, buy and equip weapons and armor, and fight the evil invaders. Eventually, you’ll be fighting epic bad guys for rare loot, saving villagers from demons in mini games, and shoring up your defenses by building a bigger, stronger army.

In v2.0, there’s plenty more to utilize, plus some general improvements. And without further delay, here’s the full list of changes provided by Pine Entertainment:
