Pixelbite’s fantastic drift-heavy, top-down racer Reckless Racing 3 ($0.99) has received a significant content update and is on sale for $2.99, down from its regular price of $4.99. The update adds support for Apple’s Metal graphics API, and while Reckless Racing 3 was a very attractive game to begin with, there definitely seems to be a bump up in the lighting, shadows, smoke and other effects. This update also adds some classic levels from the original Reckless Racing, which is nice because the original appears to no longer be available. A new cup, additional arcade events, and a tweak to the difficulty in arcade mode round out the latest update.
In addition to all the update business, Reckless Racing 3 is also on sale for the first time since its release in early October. It’s normally $4.99, so if you were on the fence about it before now is a good time to pick it up on sale for $2.99. The Reckless Racing games are among my favorite racers on iOS, and I think Reckless Racing 3 is the best one in the series so far.
