Chillingo and Traplight Games' arcade platform shooter, The Hero - 2nd Edition, has just had a big update, and to celebrate it will be on sale for $0.99 for a limited time. Updated game features include a restructured campaign with rebuilt levels that now have better flow and pacing, levels split into waves, and three new mini-games: Asteroids, Bomb Run, and High-Fiver.

Bug fixes and tweaks include a new bonus for high-five streaks, two new awards (Spy Hunter and Pigeon Puncher), birds on the roof, an improved score summary screen, lots of new sounds, added support for 180-degree display rotation, revised menu character graphics, and a new music menu. Now that's what you call an update! Chillingo and Traplight Games are also holding a contest for fans. Here are their instructions on how to enter:
1. Players must play the New Asteroids mini-game and compete for the highest score.
2. Players must take a snapshot of their highest score and submit it to 'press@chillingo.com'
3. The contest starts TODAY and ENDS on August 19.
4. The top 3 scoring players will win prizes.
The Grand prize is an action figure of The Hero, along with a branded button and coffee mug and an official certificate proclaiming you as the best player ever. And as if that wasn't awesome enough, you'll also get a Chillingo prize pack of games. First and second prize winners will also get The Hero branded coffee mugs and buttons, an official participant certificate and a Chillingo prize pack of games.
