When it came out early last month, Beach Buggy Blitz was one of an increasing number of Tegra-exclusive titles to hit the Play Store, which understandably upset some people. Namely, those people without Tegra devices (what a great excuse to buy a Nexus 7, though).

Now, the game has gone for a wider audience, and is available for most modern, high-end phones. The only specific handsets named are the Galaxy S III / II and One series, but there are obviously plenty of others that should be able to handle Buggy Blitz.

The update for non-Tegra compatibility also brings a Halloween theme to the game, which adds the "Grim Rod" car and two new drivers. There's also a brand-new in-app purchase option to encourage you to spend some more money, if that's at all surprising. Numerous bug fixes and optimizations round out the changelog. It's free to play, so head over to the Play Store to get it now.

Thanks, Jason!

    More importantly, the time limit has been tweaked so the game is now a bit easier, making for longer runs!

    Wow, this game is FUN!! Glad they finally got rid of that Tegra nonsense.

      That "Tegra nonsense" is an added bonus for consmers who purchased a Tegra device, simlar to anyone who has a PS certified device

      • SomeGuyagain

        And that "added bonus" is a marketing ploy that further fragments Android users, pretty much the LAST thing any of us should want for this platform. : )

        actually it's punishment for anyone who gets android devices that are not tegra, becaus iOS also gets at the same time tegra does.

    Kinda choppy on my HTC One S (even with lower resolution)...runs much better on the One X. I hope they tweak it a little bit more. Especially with lower resolution it should perform way better but it still lags from time to time.

    The game itself is awesome - wait til you get to the later levels :)

      i dunno, ran pretty decent (between 25 and 30fps) on my motorola defy.
      my s3 runs it 60fps all the time though.

        thanks for posting, I have an S3 also and the Note as well.

  • Jon Garrett

    sweet !! been waiting for this.

    This update made the game run so much smoother on my TF700T. I can now max out the graphic settings with almost no lag at all.
