Auto Crisis Update Available NOW!

We are very excited to to announce that a major update to the racing game Auto Crisis is available in the App Store today!

We heard you! Thanks to all the constructive criticism we recieved here at Touch Arcade, we feel that this update makes a huge improvement to the gaming experience. The game is faster, more action-packed and looks even better!

A short list of the most visible changes, based on your feedback:

* Improved controls:
- New on-screen steering wheel
- Shoot with a second finger
- Never get stuck - just keep driving!
* Cars are faster
* Improved AI adjusts to your skills! More action - the cars stay together!
* New gameplay manual
* The challenge mode is faster, less initial points
* Damaged cars have a smoke trail - you know which one shoot first
* Health pickups
* Impact sound effects
* In-game pause button (This is soo cool - slows time like an old vinyl)
* Improved on-line result screen for the time attack mode
* Visual sparkle reward if you are the leader in the race

Now that all this is done, we hope to release more beautiful and exciting levels soon. We have a few themes planned, all with stunning lighting and creative explorable maps:
- California cruise (Out Run style with palm trees and sea view)
- Futuristic asteroid base race
- Egyptian desert with ancient ruins and modern asphalt

If you have suggestions, please share them with us, and you might see them in the next release!

Those of you who bought the first version, please download the update and tell us what you think! Your input is important to us.

'Nuff said! Have a look at the video and screenshots!

I thought is was worth a purchase the first time around.

Do you like top down car racing with combat elements?
