Phobies adds 10 new characters, new maps and more in massive "Under Pressure" update

Smoking Gun Interactive has announced a new update for Phobies, the studio's tactical card-collecting game. In particular, the "Under Pressure" update beginning June 27th will welcome 10 new Phobies into the fray, with 6 new abilities that will spice things up for players.

In the latest update to Phobies, players can look forward to wielding Radihater, who can unleash a powerful AOE attack over two turns. Bogart, on the other hand, is a sticky toad that can deploy bombs against foes, while Lila can lay traps that cause Disease. Meanwhile, the dreaded Furnaceface can create a smokescreen and reduce damage for all Phobies within its range.
