CastleVille Legends

And now, CastleVille Legends lets you do much more thanks to its first ever update.

The update introduces Glurb the Troll, the friendly troll who lives under a bridge near your Castle. Make sure to feed him and he’ll reward you with treasures.

The update also introduces a new Sun Dragon named Buttercup. You can get Buttercup as your new Dragon Hero by earning Pearls from Liang the Dragon Merchant.

There’s also the new chest at the bottom of the screen. This lets you know when you have treasure ready to collect at Places of Legend. It also lets you know when you have Heroes ready to explore.

Finally, the update delivers new hidden treasures, which you can check out by trying different Heroes at Places of Legend, beginning at the Well of Wishes.

The new version of CastleVille Legends is available now in the App Store for free. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.1 or later.
