Pixel People Updated With Support For Visiting Friends' Utopias, Cloud Sync And More
Pixel People, the pixelated city-building game developed by LambdaMu and published by Chillingo, has just received what may very well be its biggest update yet. Before we proceed to the stuff that makes this "groundbreaking" update truly significant, we'll first touch upon the little things. The update brings new buildings, new animals, new mechanics, new secrets, and, of course, new jobs. There are three tiers to discover for every job, so knock yourself out by trying to unlock the game's more than 1,500 characters. And now on to the big stuff. First off, for the first time since the launch of the game late last January, Pixel People lets you travel to your friends' Utopias to see what they're building, climb their tress, and collect gifts. In addition, you can take advantage of the game's new free trade zone to exchange animals and Utopium with your friends and easily complete missions.

As a result, you can now play anytime, online or offline, and sync to the cloud or across your devices. The new version of Pixel People is available now in the App Store for free. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later. Shortly after the update went live, quite a few App Store reviews for Pixel People began pointing out a bug that apparently caused entire cities to be wiped off from the game. Fortunately, LambdaMu has assured players that it has already tracked down and eliminated the problem. A server-side fix is already in effect, and all cities that were wiped by the bug are now being manually restored. If you're one of the affected players, let LambdaMu know by sending an email to email@example.com. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
