One of our favorite games right now on Windows Phone is Pako. We've shown you the initial version just a few days ago, and now an update has just been released. The latest version 18.104.22.168 adds a new level and a new car, while fixing the annoying bug that covers up your name when typing it for recording high scores. Check out the short video after the break showing the new level, Suburbia.
If you haven't played Pako yet, the idea is to escape enemy vehicles as long as possible before you crash or the chasers catch you. Your car is always accelerating. The new car on Suburbia has faster acceleration in addition to the bright orange paint. What we like about this new car is that we can drift more often. Here's a quick tip. Drifting helps slow you down. Since there are no brakes in this game, drift as much as you can to reduce speed.
Pako is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. It's on our favorite platform first, before heading over to iOS and Android very soon. Our best time so far on the new stage is about 40 seconds. Try it out and see if you can beat it.
Thanks, Daniel, for the tip!
