Disney released the latest content update for Disney Crossy Road on mobile, which adds content from Alice Through the Looking Glass to the game.

This update includes a new world, Time’s Castle, based on the film Alice Through the Looking Glass. The world features 18 characters, including Alice, the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. Of these characters, 13 can be earned from the game’s prize machine, while five secret characters can be earned in other ways. Gamers will need to unlock one of these characters through the prize machine (or through in-app purchase) before they can play in the new world.

While playing in Time’s Castle, users can collect hourglasses to earn bonus points. Collecting hourglasses will also charge an hourglass meter at the side of the screen. When the meter is filled, the world around the character will enter slow motion for a short time. During this time, users can collect additional hourglasses to earn extra bonus points.

In addition to this new world, this update includes a new daily missions system, which allows players to earn exclusive characters over time, including one from Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Daily missions challenge players to complete specific tasks within the game, such as, “Hop on six lilypads today.” Each time players complete six daily missions, they’ll receive an exclusive new character. In addition to completing a main daily mission, players can complete two secondary missions each day to receive gift boxes.

Overall, the game’s latest update includes 25 new characters to unlock, with eight of them being secret.

Disney Crossy Road is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store, Google Play, the Windows Store and Amazon Appstore.

Disney released a new content update for Disney Crossy Road on mobile, bringing The Jungle Book to the game. In addition, Disney announced that the game has surpassed 10 million downloads since its release April 7.

Created in partnership with Hipster Whale, Disney Crossy Road challenges players to survive as long as possible by tapping to advance across lanes while avoiding obstacles like cars, animals and more. The game features worlds based on The Lion King, Disney Pixar’s Inside Out and more.

With this update, players can unlock the Jungle Book world instantly by purchasing one of its characters via in-app purchase. Players can also unlock the world for free by winning one of its characters in the game’s prize machine.

While playing in the Jungle Book world, players must avoid forest fires, which are triggered by lightning strikes. Once lightning strikes a square and causes a fire, the fire will spread to nearby squares, sometimes blocking areas of the path.

The Jungle Book update includes 15 characters such as Mowgli, Kaa, Baloo and Shere Khan, among others. The set includes four secret characters, which are not available to purchase. In total, the game’s latest update includes 25 new characters, but 14 of these are secret.

Disney Crossy Road is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store, Google Play, Windows Store and Amazon Appstore.

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Can you tell your brand’s story in 60 seconds? Instagram is now allowing its advertisers to find out.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network announced Wednesday that 60-second video ads are now available to marketers, saying in an email to SocialTimes:

We recognize that advertisers have a variety of creative resources and want to bring more choice to help them reach their business goals.

Instagram allows brands to amplify campaigns and build anticipation heading into key moments in time, such as this weekend’s big game or a highly anticipated movie premiere.

Instagram said initial advertisers involved in the test of 60-second video ads included T-Mobile USA, which experimented with an extended version of its Super Bowl spot featuring Drake; and Warner Bros., which created a 60-second trailer for upcoming feature film How to Be Single.

The 30-second and 60-second spots from T-Mobile are embedded below.
