As we learned last month, retro-inspired racer Horizon Chase [Free] has just reached the one-year anniversary of arriving in the App Store, and to celebrate the team at Aquiris Game Studio has just released a special update adding some great new content to the game. This new content comes in the form of a new Australian Cup with 9 brand new tracks and two new vehicles, one a more modern high-performance sports car and the other more of a classic muscle car. Both are very welcome additions to what I believe is one of the finest racers on mobile, and you can see the new stuff in action in the following trailer.

In addition to this new content, Horizon Chase will also be landing on the Apple TV next month, and I'm anxious to see how this beauty looks on the big screen. My guess is it'll look "really freaking good." One of the neatest things about Horizon Chase is that it's inspired by retro arcade racers, but it feels decidedly modern. Aquiris didn't set out to simply make a racing game that could have been possible in the '90s, but rather one that has the same air of excitement and sense of speed of those older games but built for today, and I think they totally nailed it. Horizon Chase switched to a free-with-premium-unlock model back in January, so there's really no excuse not to check it out if you somehow haven't already in the past year or so.

    This classic just keeps getting better and better! I still love the gameplay and the new content need breathing new life into this awesome arcade racer! Hats off to the hard work and dedication from Aquiris Games!

    Would love to play that new content but, on Android, they never used cloud saves so I would have to start all over again. And they never fixed an annoying bug that caused the upgrade screen to always show up after a race, even if you losed.

    This game might be what ultimately pushes me to get a new Apple TV. My only gripe about the game is that I wish getting a perfect race didn't depend on collecting all the blue things, and just on the race itself.
