This past spring developer Brownmonster released the latest entry in their excellent rally racing series, Rush Rally 3 ($4.99). It featured a ton of different vehicles to collect and upgrade, numerous different tracks and terrains to race on, and a number of modes to test your rally racing skills in. The first two Rush Rally games were each the far and away best rally racing games on the App Store during their respective times of release, and Rush Rally 3 continued that trend by offering an experience just as solid as the previous games but bigger and better in every way. The most impressive part is that these games are largely the work of just one man. We loved Rush Rally 3 when it released in March and chose it for our Game of the Week back then, check out the launch trailer.
Anyway, for the past few months Brownmonster has been working on a major update for Rush Rally 3 which would add in a special new Live Event mode where players from all over the world could take part in special limited time challenges and compete against each other for top honors. Today that update has finally gone live in the App Store. The Live Events could feature a single track time trial, a multiple stage rally, or an entirely original track made specifically for the event. The amount of time these events run can vary too, like say a single weekend or even a quick 24 hour event. It seems like just the thing to keep hardcore Rush Rally 3 players who have beaten the game to death already going for ever and ever and ever. The Live Events update is out now, go check it out and drop by the forums to leave your thoughts.
