Almost a year and a half after its last update, Monster Dash is back from the dead with a significant update.
The popular monster-slaying runner game, which forms Fruit Ninja creator Halfbrick’s Barry Steakfries trilogy along with the endless runner Jetpack Joyride and the dual-stick shooter Age of Zombies, is no longer just a high score chaser. Rather, it now features daily events, new leaderboards and achievements, and a new leveling system that unlocks new weapons, upgrades, and bonuses.
The new version of Monster Dash also boasts a refreshed UI and visual style and introduces new monsters, including demons, mummies, vampires, and zombies.
Check out Halfbrick’s trailer for the new version of Monster Dash in the form of a montage music video:
