First teased by developer Hello Games back in May, a substantial update to side-scroller racing game Joe Danger has just hit the App Store. Most notably, version 1.0.3 ushers in a brand new tour for Joe. The calendar tour adds 21 new levels of wild motorcycle riding action. Five new characters, exclusive to the iOS title, are also welcomed in the new version. Players can also earn big coin rewards with daily challenges and test their skills in the new and improved Laboratory. And along with performance and memory improvements, the update also fixes Twitter sharing issues. Originally released in January, our own Christine Chan gave the game a very positive review:
I’m really enjoying this game so far. The graphics are downright stunning, and everything is incredibly smooth and fluid with the frame rate. It really does feel like a console game in the palm of my hand. However, I think it should have included multiplayer — that would have been a great addition. Whether it’s with friends or strangers through Game Center, it would have added another immersive layer to the game. Still, this is a fantastic single-player game that will definitely keep you entertained (the description says over 20 hours of action). If you are a fan of side-scrolling games, platformers, or even racing games, then Joe Danger is definitely one you should check out.Joe Danger is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. To celebrate the update, the app is currently on sale in the App Store for just $0.99, down from its usual $2.99.
