[prMac.com] Rauenberg, Germany - Indie developer Rombos today updated its popular strategy racing game Dash Race to version 3.5 with lots of new features and improvements, especially considering the much appreciated feedback of the constantly growing user base.
Besides a new control schema that makes it very easy to complete your move, Dash Race 3.5 comes with a new optional background grid consisting of triangles instead of squares. Choosing this will require a completely different strategy to drive optimal curves and avoid obstacles. For an additional thrill, you can choose to make the grid invisible and so additionally challenge experienced drivers.
The exciting online multiplayer race via Game Center was extended by a text chat feature that allows players to communicate even if voice chat is unavailable or unwanted at the moment. And if a player is unintentionally disconnected during a game, it is now easy to continue the race where you left off once all players are available again.
Other improvements include more intelligent robots, better overall Game Center handling, a revised scoring system to better account for driving excellence, and the option of listening to your own iPod music during a race.
This big update is rounded off with a new free "go-where-you-like" space-theme track, plus various new achievements, especially the much asked for puzzle-type quests for completing tracks with a given minimal number of moves.
