We are proud to present the latest version of AUTOMAKHAN featuring a host of game and performance improvements and introducing sound effects from producer Nick Ingvoldstad AKA Caerus. The new upgrade mechanics allow for endless customization which provides a more sophisticated and exciting late-game. It is faster and easier than ever to create a game and share the URL with friends.
