    Didn't make it to 11 last nite but just picked this up this morning. Will give it a go on my commuter train this AM.

    Finally a version of the game I can play! The tilt control is spot on, and a lot easier for me than with mouse. Brilliant port, and the definitive version as far as I'm concern.

    Game is SO good!!! Def play with headphones at least for a bit to enjoy the music and menu sounds. Levels are varied. Love the cars going up and down the buildings - reminds me of Bladerunner.

    Question: I unlocked the Glove but have yet to see any fans or protestors. Do they only appear in later levels?

    Yes:

    With the hope of NOT inflaming the always flammatory touch versus tilt debacle, is there any hope of touch controls for those of us who do believe that Aaaaa's tilt controls are wonderful, but can never quite get used to any kind of tilt mechanics (Pizza vs. Skeletons and Space Tripper be durned)?

    (I am well aware that many games are simply made for and intended to be enjoyed with tilt controls, but I've also learned that even in these cases, touch can be a smart move for devs, even if the devs themselves find such controls wholly unfeasible, as many players might not. Kinda the same debate as porting to iPhone from iPad, that even if the devs themselves can't see the game being properly enjoyed on such a small screen, many players might, and the increase in sales and attention might be worth the effort.)

    Bought this for iPhone 4s last night and played a few levels, looks and plays great! Controls are wonderful although I realized it is best to play this game with your phone leveled (as if it is sitting on a table or something).

    Alright, I think I'll give this a shot. TA review and others are convincing me.

    Is there calibration for the tilt controls? Anyone had a go with the tilting on the iPad?

    There's calibration :)
    Each time you play a level, when you tap to begin, the angle that your device is currently oriented to is used as the 'zero point'.

    There's sensitivity adjustment :)
    In the setup page, you can adjust the Accelerometer sensitivity to your liking

    There's even look controls! :)
    Enable look speed in the setup screen and enjoy dragging on the screen with any finger to look in any direction!

    Also, Hi. One of the developers here. :)

    Absolutely fantastic, already one of my top favorites. Only complaint: performance could be slightly better on iPhone 4. It's by no means problematic but this is the type of game that really needs a damn slick framerate to feel right.

    Can anyone confirm that it runs smoothly on 3GS?? If that so, I'll buy

    Only minor niggle is I would like a Fly Again option after successfully completing a level. There is Try Again after a crash, but if I land I have to go back to the level select and pick the level again to try to improve my score (just one more try!).

    I can confirm the buttery smooth 3gs performance, but then again, I was the one optimizing performance on it so I can't be trusted :)

    I've only just started it, but after 4 levels, so far I'd say it's just OK. I'm having buyers regret and thinking I should have gone with my gut instinct after seeing the video. At the moment, at least, it definitely feels like a lesser 99 cent game that costs $2.99. Maybe it will grow on me, though. I guess I'll find out.

    Ok. Lets say I believe you just like I would believe anyone who was not involved in development of this game. ;) ...You got my 3$

    It gets better after the first few levels in my opinion, those are more introductory levels. It's a little more crazy later on (you will die more), then add the wave/flipoff/spraypaint buttons to the mix and it really takes alot of concentraion to score high and not splat against a building.

    I hope you stick with it; we had a lot of fun creating it, and I think the complexity builds slowly but surely.

    Has anyone discovered any stunts other than "Threading the Needle"?
