Who knew Easter Weekend would be such a busy time for massive updates?
Not to be outdone by Table Top Racing, the Pocket Gamer Bronze Award-winning Sonic Dash released its first major update since it sprinted onto the App Store earlier this month.
While it lacks a holiday theme, Sonic Dash Version 1.1.0 drops the price of the endless runner down to the just-right sum of "free" making it quite the sweet treat indeed.
On a ring and a prayer
In terms of new content, Version 1.1.0 is sure to please fans of the hasty hedgehog.
The first change comes in new daily challenges - each with its own prize like Red Star Rings and additional characters to unlock.
Along with the daily challenges, Sega also rolled out a new Mission Tracker to help you keep the game's goals in your sites.
Version 1.1.0 also tweaks the gameplay significantly to improve its performance on the iPhone 4 and 4S, while issuing a general improvement to frame rates across the board.
Finally, and charitably, the update also re-balances certain obstacles to help Sonic avoid previously unavoidable deaths.
