Pako, our favorite car chasing game adds new car and new level in latest update

Pako update

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 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 Suburbia

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!

That's what she said .

omer620 is 11 years old, and one immature f***er. Don't worry, his mom will soon tell him it's dinner time and he'll stop trolling.

Why so much rage... If you don't like it... Ignore ..

abdhoms says:

That's what you think she said.

mjrtoo says:

That doesn't even make sense.

Aanze says:

What ? Are you aware that this sentence is supposed to be linked to a specific context ?

AnubhavSingh says:

Aqib Raza says:

BURNNNNNNN!!! omer620

Love this game really addictive

Brilliant. This is taking over my life right now!

omer620 says:

That's what she said...

But your mum doesn't speak with a gimp ball in her mouth.

jmunchies1 says:

Please move the placement of the damn ad or offer a pay version.

guillams says:

+925 for a pay version

Mark Guim says:

You're probably not connected to the internet?

I am actually. I'm at home on WiFi. Today, before the update while playing it out and about, there were no ads. Got home, there were. Now, there isn't!

Is your rotation lock on? That prevents the ad from moving to the top of the screen and keeps it over the left turn button (which is incredibly inconvenient).

DennisvdG says:

I was 3d on the mall level :P
I already fell down to 8th though

They've made it easier. The cop cars disappear after a while now.

DVELOPinc says:

They disappeared before this update as well. They may have changed just how long it took to disappear.

Ah right. I never made it that long before haha!

Been playing this since I read the first article about. Got to 48 seconds.

Aw no.. High score of 58 wiped, name already taken..

Milk21 says:

My high score for the original mall level was wiped also...

I'm not so bothered, it's slightly easier now and I've already cracked 1:20 :¬)

CJ Thunder says:

I love the art style...

QilleRz says:

The developer hearing. Awesome ;)

misfitpierce says:

Love the game. Been playing for like 6 days and its just great

DavidinCT says:

First game I got 43 seconds....interesting one, I can see this being addictive

nizzon says:

Love the Graphics. HATE the controls.

armyvet66629 says:

Best strategy is to circle the island in the mall level. Cops crash into each other the mall sign lol

Mark Guim says:

Tried doing that! They eventually come.

DVELOPinc says:

I watched my 4yr oold doing that and she was getting upwards 40+ seconds. Now I'm trying her tactic and I'm breaking 1:20+, lol.

AstroPop says:

This game is awesome. Made a record of just under 50 seconds on the new track, #168 on the scoreboard!

SeraphX2 says:

Have they fixed the "bug" where the stupid add covers the screen?

SeraphX2 says:

I did. Sorry, wasn't too descriptive. The ad in the top of the screen while you are playing. It's the number one complaint in the reviews. And it is quite annoying because there isn't always enough time to react if something comes from behind the ad. What I said was sarcasm, not a serious question.

Joshhi says:

Im at 39  seconds and I hate this game because everytime my sister beats my score I spend an hour beating her score

milfermon says:

I think I'll give it a try

Aksuli says:

Btw. "pako" is Finnish and means "escape".

ricardios says:

Holy crap it's addicting!

No Xbox, no play.

No sensible comment, no care.

mister2d says:

Bad credit? Poor credit? It's ok with us. Low rates and fees.

wtrmlnjuc says:

It'd be cool if they added a level with jumps and loops. Fantasy land.

Daniel Brott says:

Mark my word, this is the next flappy bird.

nizzon says:

Never. Controls are too crappy it feels like luck if you clear a cop.

shaan sarode says:

I do wish there was a free ride world with no food ir anything and no crashes... Just plain driving around

nayagam_p says:

Think that new update has added ''Pause '' and '' SFX Volume '' in addition to just volume, don't know for sure whether it was earlier. Even before this update, you can bug the bug (LOL ) by first logging in offline and then getting it registered

wphashan says:

Man! My personal best was 1 min & 3 sec, new update ruined it! I'm not going to play again.. Errrgh.. :-/

Mine was 1:30 bt now its 2:57...they made it easier ...

xeonfire says:

Great fun, great update!

Aashish13 says:

Dena bank arrives on wp

Its got way too easier....already in top 100....

dwarfsize says:

It drains my battery like nothing else. Like a predeceased a minute.

powerd says:

Yeah just keep drifting around the Mall sign! dunno why games like this are played.. I want a game where you can play for at least for couple of minutes

The game strategy became more monotonous after the update!!!!!

Jupast says:

Cool game.

Wish there was a good V8 sound for the Car itself though. Must be silent running.


HyperionR says:

Hard to play. Removed.

mayblast says:

Fails to install after the latest update, L520.
