Sonic Dash, the endless running game starring Sega’s famously speedy hedgehog, has just received another update that includes new features and improvements.

First off, Sonic Dash now invites you to participate in its first ever global challenge, where some nice prizes are up for grabs.

And if you’ve always found it difficult to amass Red Star Rings in the game to be used in unlocking new characters or in buying revives or second chances, worry no more. You can now get these special rings not only by completing objectives or buying them in the in-game shop. Rather, you can now also collect them while running since they now occupy certain parts of the Sonic Dash track.

The new version of Sonic Dash also lets you upgrade all of your power-ups to level 6 and offers better value for the larger packs of revives.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Sonic Dash is available now in the App Store.

Released in early March, the game used to be priced at $0.99. But it’s been downloadable without charge since it went free less than a month after its launch.
