    Highly recommended game for fans of adventure/platformer games.

    Edit: whoops I put this in the wrong forum, can a mod please change it?

    Does the dev have anything to say about this? Any World 4 screens besides this one?

    Hey everyone, I know it's been taking awhile but we are now working on world 4 in full force.

    It's been a pretty busy past 2 months for us, we moved to a new office which *just* got internet yesterday and finished a new game that should be in the app store soon(hopefully Friday).

    I also finished up my last job and have joined the team full time. We now have 5 full time employees and another one joining in July.

    If you haven't seen the world 4 screenshot yet it's at: http://www.teamphobic.com/

    We are doing okay, had some good months and some bad months so they even out. We are all working VERY hard, but mostly it is what we love doing and we are happy to be in a position to make money doing what we love.

    Glad to hear it! The screenshot looks good, though IMO Bounce On's spirit really can't be captured in a still image. I'll be anxious to see how it plays. I bought it the last time it went on sale, prior to the World 3 launch, and I absolutely loved it. I've beaten almost every level, but even Silver medals remain an elusive achievement for me on plenty of them...lots of replay value here!

    Anyone who doesn't have it yet should definitely buy it. :)

    Hey guys, this there any way you can add an alternate control scheme where you just touch the sides of the screen to roll, and then pull up to jump? It would make life a lot easier when I'm on the bus or sitting up in bed.

    To the devs, do you think this game will ever have another control scheme? Like a D-pad for movement?

    IMO the tilt controls are spot on, but other control schemes would be good for those that really hate tilting

    Why are people asking for a D-Pad???
    There is not one single iPhone game with a GOOD D-Pad.
    This device has got other and WAY better methods to control.
    Best are the virtual round pads like in iDracula.
    And I even prefere the touch-everywhere invisible ones, like in Dropship or Caster. And then there is Tilt. And as in NFS or Bounce on, it works perfectly.
    D-Pad always sucks on the iPhone.

    We're asking cause we don't like tilt controls. I hate skewing the game just to move forward.

    iDracula, Zenonia and Carjack Streets (on foot) have great d-pads that the vast majority like. Dpad in the corner or invisible touch anywhere d-pads like Caster - it doesn't matter. Also touching left/ right of the screen would be cool too.

    Cool. Looking forward to world 4 and the screenshot looks good - quite a different theme from those that have gone before, really wondering what new type of ball power-up might be found there :). I had gold on every level in the first three worlds, but I reinstalled since then - better get through 2 and 3 again in preparation, except I'll likely fresh install with 3.0 again ><.
