6th Planet’s Second Major Update Has Landed!

Wow, Monkube certainly don’t monkey around when it comes to updates! Their comic book-inspired take on the Lunar Lander genre, 6th Planet — one of our favorite iOS games of 2011, as you may remember — just benefited from a whole bunch of tweaks and improvements, as well as being kitted out with some awesome-sounding new content.

Update 2 comes packing 10 all-new levels, including the prologue scene to 6th Planet II: Mission Earth(!), a faster ship for free (which was previously only available via an in-app purchase), Facebook and ‘Gift this app’ integration, a new screen rotation option, plus loadsa level tweaks and miscellaneous bug fixes.

If you’re a fan of Monkube and 6th Planet, you’ll probably also enjoy our full review of the game and in-depth developer interview.
