GUILDFORD, UK– December 18, 2009

Having received a very warm reception from gamers&reviewers and been deemed“Hot” as well as“New and Noteworthy” by Apple since its release on November 5, Ground Effect has now been updated.

• Anaglyph stereo 3D option

• Driver/1st person camera view

• Free-play practice levels

• Control sensitivity adjustment

• Re-designed user interface

• Faster running speed

• Smoother animation - up to 60 FPS on iPhone 3GS

• Easier access to user’s iPod

If you have one of the many 3D DVD or Blu-ray movies released this year, why not try using the 3D glasses with Ground Effect to get a face-full of the new, enhanced action?

Even without the silly glasses, you can continue to enjoy this unique racer with even smoother frame rates. Fans will also appreciate the new camera and control options which offer a whole new perspective and feel to gameplay. Just want to chill out or check out the levels before you race? Users now also have the opportunity to explore the beautifully rendered, free-roaming landscapes on all 14 levels without having to unlock them first.

“We were lucky enough to get a lot of feedback which I’ve taken onboard in order to make improvements to this title. The stereo 3D was a purely self-indulgent addition. I've been a huge fan since even before I added it to Bullfrog's Magic Carpet all those years ago and I've always wanted to see it used in a game on a more powerful machine. Who would have believed that machine could fit in your pocket only a decade or so later? I hope people enjoy it as an option as much as I enjoyed working on it. There are more updates planned for the near future”

We’ve released 3 new screenshots for you along with a new stereo 3D video, which can be also seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Eca2Xg_V8s.
