Prairie Chute 1.5 : "Back in Action" Coming Soon!



Hello all! We are pleased to announce that the second update to Prairie Chute was submitted to Apple on Friday. This version incorporates many features and additions suggested by the TA community. Here is a rundown of key new features:

→ Awards: Over 20 achievements from the hilarious to the tedious, these new challenges will have something for every type of player to shoot for while dropping dogs! Earn Agon PocketScores for each Award!

→ Extra Lives: Collect stars to earn extra lives so you can keep that streak alive. You can earn up to 2 extra lives per game (3 stars for each).

→ Star Leaderboard: Don't stop collecting those stars after you earn your extra lives! A new leaderboard tracks all stars you have collected for each difficulty level.

→ Special diving suit for pro players who unlock the "King Ripcord" Award. This also unlocks a couple of new landing sounds for the dog while wearing the suit!

→ New dog voices for landing, extra lives and more!

→ Tilt Control Enhancements: Medium and Fast tilt settings now increase the speed of the dog reaction as well as velocity.

→ Various bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Screenshots from the upcoming 1.5:





Here is a sampling of some of the Awards locked in the game:



We want to especially thank forum members Pluto6 and jasonsmith for participating in our beta program... their testing and ideas have been invaluable for helping us get this update out the door.

I will be posting screenshots/videos of new gameplay elements later this week. Stay tuned to this thread for updates as the release draws near!

Get it now and be ready for the 1.5 release:

Sweet!

Hey Matt,

Thanks for the update - I can't wait to see how difficult some of these achievements are - King Ripcord huh? - Bring it on!

You bet! King Ripcord is a pretty straight forward scoring achievement (that requires a good score on each of the three difficulty levels)... but some of them are a little weird like cactus bounces and buzzard tapping . There are also two mystery awards that have hints, but no explicit instructions on how to achieve them.

The addition of extra lives should help in accomplishing these as well as driving the leaderboard scores even higher!

Hopefully soon . You should have a leg up with the beta testing! With the extra lives I think we will see significantly higher scores.

New screenshots have been posted to the top post. A test entry from Apple has been posted to our new leaderboard, so we anticipate approval coming at any time now!

Thanks Rachel and drelbs...

Rachel... prepare for that top score to go down once people get the extra lives. I'm sure you can reclaim it though!
