Ramp Champ Joins Other Classic iOS Games With iOS 11 Support

The last update to Ramp Champ added retina graphics – for the iPhone 4. The beloved iOS arcade game sat untouched for nearly four years, until now. An update released yesterday by SocketFace Games adds 64-bit support, ensuring iOS 11 compatibility, along with several other changes including:

  • Additional retina graphics
  • Updated physics
  • Updated sounds and music
  • iCloud syncing
  • Game Center leaderboards and achievements
  • Force Touch icon support

Some classic games will inevitably be lost as a result of the transition to 64-bit apps, but it’s heartening to see some of the very best classics updated in recent weeks.

The update to Ramp Champ is available on the App Store.
