Race After 1977's Suspension and Handling Upgraded

By , on April 27, 2011

1977 was, to say the least, a notable year for the makers of the iPhone.

In that January, Apple Computer was incorporated. Five months later, the first Apple II series personal computers went on sale.

So, yes, a significant period indeed for Mr Jobs & co.

Xpect Games’s Race After 1977 probably won’t be considered a landmark for the Cupertino-based company in quite the same way, though a recent update should leave a friendlier legacy.

One of Andrew’s main complaints about this post-apocalyptic racer was its ‘marshmallow suspension’, something the developers have addressed in version 1.1.0 as part of a wider handling tweak.

Those always infernal framerate drops should be consigned to Race After 1977’s history bin, too, leaving drivers to focus on the gorgeous visuals without fear of performance slowdown.

Vrooom, vrooooooooooooooooooooom.
