Updating to "Pro" in The End App [Free] feels like a much better value proposition now thanks to a recent content update for the game. Version 1.2 of the behind-the-back runner sees the release of several new "Pro" add-ons, including several modes, a new character, and new challenges for anyone who wants to pony up the $1.99 asking price. Before, Pro users weren't receiving much for their purchase.

To be specific, the new modes -- Out of Luck, Powerless, and Sudden Death -- are just simple spins on the existing city run. Out of Luck, for example, is a city run that bars you from using lucky coins. Sudden Death is a hilariously sped up version of the game that kind of feels broken in the best way possible.

The new character, by the way? A zombie. Naturally.

The End App is one of our favorite runners, so consider giving it a look. We did earlier when the game hit, and we've got some footage of the game in action:

    What was the game before the "Pro" add-on?  I am releasing my own app with the same idea of adding worlds after the initial release and I am interested in how others did it.  We are also trying to build the story of the app before we release it by building up a facebook page as we go.  We will see how it works.  Check it out! http://www.facebook.com/CavemanGolf

    I love changing the characters I use in "Temple Run" -- it's truly an addiction -- and when I got "The End" it kinda "refreshed" my experience with endless-running games (at least visually speaking). great app, I recommend it too! :)

    You might have also mentioned that the update added between-game advertisements to the free version, and seems to have made the previously butter-smooth gameplay a lot more hitchy and jumpy as it tries to compare your scores to Game Center friends on the fly, prep the ads, and who knows what all else.

    Might be a great update for the Pro customer, or anyone about to upgrade, but I'd hold off on it if you're still enjoying the free version.

    I am looking forward to the "London Apocalympics" update that's being teased now, though ... adding another city entirely might get me to upgrade.
