One of the key features is an update to use Venan's latest graphics engine, bringing console-quality visual effects to the iPhone 3GS and 3rd generation iPod touch. "People will be amazed when they see this update," said Brandon Curiel, CEO of Venan. "You can see every glossy spec of metal and every nook and cranny in the asteroids now.
