Mobile, Facebook Game Roundup: Thanksgiving 2015 Edition

We take a look at some of the Thanksgiving-themed content updates available in mobile and Facebook games this year.

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States, many mobile and Facebook game developers have added themed updates to their games to celebrate the holiday.

From a Food Fight event in Plants vs. Zombies 2 to the Springfield Fowl Face-Off event in The Simpsons: Tapped Out, there are plenty of Thanksgiving-themed updates to experience in games this month.

Here’s a look at some of the Thanksgiving-themed updates in games on Facebook and mobile devices.

Land Sliders (Free on iOS) – This endless item collection game from Prettygreat has been updated with new collectible characters: a Turkey who wants to collect cranberry sauce, and a Football Player who collects footballs.

Township (Free on iOS, Android, Amazon) – This city-building game from Playrix has received a Thanksgiving event, which allows players to compete in the Farmers Contest. In this event, players will work to grow a giant watermelon by completing orders for their citizens in order to earn fertilizer. The heavier their watermelon becomes, the more prizes players will receive. By growing their watermelon, players will also help the entire player base reach the global event goal and receive a unique holiday decoration. In addition to this event, new holiday decorations have been added to the game’s store. These include an Inflatable Pig, Inflatable Cow and Inflatable Chicken, among others.

Bullet Boy

Bullet Boy (Free on iOS, Android) – From Pomelo Games and Kongregate this puzzle action game has received a ‘Harvest’ content update containing a Thanksgiving-themed mini-world filled with corn, squash and pilgrims. If players can complete the world before the event ends on December 3, they’ll receive a free turkey outfit for their character.

AdVenture Capitalist

Adventure Capitalist (Free on iOS, Android) – On November 25, this clicker or idle game from Hyper Hippo Games and Kongregate will be updated with a ‘Black & Blue Friday’ event, which will see players using the power of the Black & Blue Light Sale to cut costs and maximize profits. Players can earn badges, as well as Mega Bucks and Gold, as they participate in this event. The Black & Blue Friday event will run until midnight on November 30.

Restaurant Story 2 (Free on iOS) – This restaurant simulation game from Storm8 has received a limited time Thanksgiving catering event, which will see players complete orders to win Thanksgiving prizes, including a special customer named Timmy the Turkey, and a special Mini Pumpkin Pies recipe. Players can also win Thanksgiving and harvest-themed tables, chairs and other decorations. This event runs until November 28.

Farm Story 2 (Free on iOS) – This farming game from Storm8 has been updated with a County Fair event, which will see players complete orders to win limited-edition Thanksgiving prizes like the Thankful Cat, Pilgrim Cow, Pilgrim Chicken, Pilgrim Sheep and Pilgrim Pig.

Fantasy Forest Story (Free on iOS, Android) – From November 24 to November 29, players of this animal breeding and battling game from Storm8 can compete in the ‘Thankfowl Tournament,’ which will see them battle against 30 creatures, including a Stuffin Puffin. The last creature players will face is the Thankfowl (pictured above), and if players can defeat it before the event ends, they can keep the creature for their game.

Castle Story (Free on iOS, Android) – Players of this kingdom-building game from Storm8 can now complete the Dinner Mystery-themed Stage Event, which sees them build a Dinner Mystery Table by collecting special materials which are only available in specific quests. Once the table is complete (it has multiple stages), players can use it as they participate in the game’s second event, the Food Shelter event, which runs from November 26 to November 30. In this event, players will be asked to prepare a Potluck Feast by collecting ‘Offerings.’ Players receive these Offerings from Kitchens after each feast they complete, and can also receive them from the final level of the Dinner Mystery Table. If players can complete the Potluck Feast, they’ll receive the Food Shelter structure, which will give them food items when it’s harvested.
