To celebrate the theatre release of Ice Age: Continental Drift, GameLoft released a major update to their much loved and highly rated game, Ice Age Village. The update includes some cool new features for building your own village and some really fun mini games featuring Scrat, everyone’s favorite acorn-chasing squirrel.
The game does contain some pretty pricey in-app purchases, so that’s definitely something to take caution with.
