The wildly popular Crossy Road has just run into a notable update.
Touted as an endless arcade hopper, Crossy Road is a Frogger-inspired game that has you guiding your playable character through a voxel world so that it doesnt get hit by cars, drown in rivers, and get eaten by hawks, among other ways to die.
Released in November last year, it was hailed by us here at AppAdvice as one of our 10 best free iPhone apps of 2014. Prior to its launch, it was already acclaimed as a finalist in the Australian Game Developer Awards 2014 for Game of the Year, Excellence in Art, and Excellence in Design, created as it was by the Australia-based indie game studio Hipster Whale.
As mentioned, Crossy Road has just received an update.
