Car Mania 1.0.2: Volcano Rescue! (Now FREE)

Edit - Quick thread bump for OpenFeint 2.4 update! Lite is no longer available (it was actually shifting fewer units than the full, which was a bit backward).

Hi all,

Car Mania has just had a significant update including a hot new map! (OK that was a terrible pun...) It's still just 99c/59p/0.79, so hitting buy won't break the bank

Here's the feature list:

* New level: Volcano Rescue! Guide everyone to the safety of the waiting ships from the erupting volcano!
* New improved 'Freeway' Now with lane changing for added mayhem.
* Automatically saves your game
* Improved front end layout
* Unlocking maps & modes made easier
* Title music playable in-game
* Sound FX volume levels balanced
* Few bug fixes

And a look at the new level:





So, what does everyone think of the changes and new content? And what would you like to see in any hypothetical future updates? Enquiring game designers want to know!

FUTURE SENSE - A brain-bending Time Travel adventure OUT NOW!
SENTINEL 4: DARK STAR - Probably the best Tower Defence in the Galaxy
TRANSPORT TYCOON - The definitive version of the classic business sim

This is definitely my favourite line-drawing game. Don't know what else I would want though, the game is fine. Maybe taxis picking up passengers, dropping them off, then going to the garage? I really recommend this one. Oh, just noticed that you made unlockables easier to get. I was thinking of an unlockable requiring a million cars or something, that would be fun to try and get

I always think that the best way for developers to get customers excited is with an inflow of new content. Look at harbor master: I really didn't think it was better than flight control but with everything they've added, I hardly play FC anymore. There's something really nice about knowing that a game never stops evolving.

I think you are on the right track, I'm sure that if you announce that your app will have new maps/content every 1 to 2 weeks, you'll get people to try out your excellent game. Can't wait to try out the new map!

From the reaction to the train level, we guessed this would be a winner. I think this map may have the Sentinel games beaten in explosions per pixel...

As it stands does the game recognize any sort of combos? Like driving multiple green cars to their destination in a row before allowing any other colors to reach their destination (therefore breaking the combo)?
