Tag Games has released a major update to its GTA-like urban action RPG Car Jack Streets [App Store] and extended the game’s $.99 sale price.

“We are an independent developer that really takes onboard how gamers receive our titles. We aim to update Car Jack Streets with their feedback at the forefront of the creative process and to resolve any technical or gameplay issues that are negatively affecting the user experience.

We found Car Jack Streets to be an excellent action RPG and our biggest complaint was the control scheme — an issue addressed in this update. At $.99, there’s no excuse for letting this one pass you by. See our review (plus video) of the original v1.0 release.
The update is currently being discussed in our forums where users are loving what they’re seeing.
