The Turkish independent studio Vertigo Games’ hit game Critical Strike reached 90 million downloads and the game continues to grow. The multiplayer FPS game also received a new content update that brings the good old 80s vibe back to life.

The Vertigo team behind the update put in a great deal of work and research to allow Critical Strike players to live through the 80s as authentically as possible. Having said that, the Summer Vice update comes with more than just a different artistic approach to the popular mobile game shooter; included in the Summer Vice update are brand new content, in-game events, and championship tournaments.

The Istanbul-based game firm added Unity’s Ulas Karademir as an advisor to the board this summer to “enhance and improve Vertigo’s technical capabilities”. Vertigo is also working on another title named Project X and aims to launch it this year.

Vertigo Games was founded by Ali Sayın and Murat Sayın back in 2013, nearly a decade ago. The independent Turkish gaming entity is also a self-publishing company.

In other news, another Turkish studio, Gameguru, also had a very successful run with its Army Commandera hyper-casual game—having reached and passed 30 million downloads in just three months.
