- Various bug fixes and improvements.
Lara is automatically running forward, while the player has the option, via wiping action over the screen of the Smartphone or Tablet, to make evasive movements like jumping, ducking or moving to sides to bypass obstacles such as columns, tree roots or holes on the ground. One single mistake leads Lara to die and the level has to start all over, alternatively Resurrection Ankhs can be utilized to continue the run with increasing cost.
Next to running passages, there are driving and shooting parts. In the shooting part, Lara is still automatically running, but you don't have to bypass obstacles, but kill enemies, and shoot their projectiles. Lara's health gets reduced and a health display can be seen only in this part.
- In the outfit section, when you click twice on four of Lara's outfits (Standard, Agent 47, Area 51 and Christmas), where she's holding her iconic guns, the guns disappear from Lara's hands during the second click and return to the holsters. Lara's animation remains the same as if she was still holding the guns.
- Lara Croft is voiced by Abigail Stahlschmidt.
