Well, I’m surprised that it’s up so soon, but Rapid Racer v1.0.2 has been approved and is now available for download on the App Store! This version brings with it some bug fixes and a few exciting new features, including OpenFeint integration! Yep, that’s right, there’s now a leaderboard, several achievements for you to complete, and all the other advantages inherent to OpenFeint. Oh, and you can also play your own background music now. ;~)
I’m really excited for this update, and hope you like it! If you don’t already have Rapid Racer, this is the perfect time to download it. And if you are using v1.0 or v1.0.1, go update now! Here’s the full list of changes, from the App Store description:
This update is just full of goodies! Here’s what’s new…
~ OpenFeint integration! Yep, that’s right, Rapid Racer is now all kinds of OpenFeint-capable. Challenge your friends, climb your way to the top of the leaderboard, and complete exciting and challenging achievements! You’ll notice two new buttons on the scores page—Leaderboard and Achievements—and a new OpenFeint button on the main screen.
~ The music in Rapid Racer is simply awesome, if I do say so myself. But hey, maybe you want to recklessly drive through traffic while listening to some of your own tunes? Well, now you can! Rapid Racer now supports your own background music. You’ll find a new mute/un-mute button on the main screen and on the pause screen so that you can tell the game to cool it with the music.
~ Fancy new icon with an OpenFeint badge.
~ Added a confirmation pop-up for when you reset your high score. How will you ever prove you scored 2 million points if you accidentally erase all evidence of your crazy skills?
~ Changed the pause game behavior ever so slightly. Now, you’ll get a few car-free moments after returning to the game.
The Boring Bits:
~ BUG FIX: So, there once was this red car who thought he was just too cool for school. In fact, he thought he was good enough to just drive right on through anything that got in his way. Oh, he thought he could hide, but boy, oh boy, was he wrong. You may have found yourself able to pass through a car every once in while without crashing…well, that’s been fixed.
~ BUG FIX: Posting to Facebook from the Scores page no longer redirects you to a really funky looking error page. Sorry about that, I made a little typo. :-S
~ It’s that time of year. You know, holiday season, which is code for overeating. And Rapid Racer enjoys a good bit of gluttony every once in a while. Luckily, Rapid Racer wears an extra ~1mb pretty darn well.
~ Better Facebook and Twitter integration/posting.
~ Upgrades will be available in the next version, promise.
~ Game Center integration, sometime in the near(ish) future.
~ Performance improvements. Always like to make things run more smoothly!
~ Boatloads of other, secret, fun stuff. ;~)
I hope you’ve been enjoying Rapid Racer! If you run into any issues at all, need some help, or just generally want to get in touch, please feel free to drop me a line (http://loganhasson.com/contact)
