    Ok found an issue. I've been playing the game with my mad catz controller. After some time the game's frame rate continues to drop, until it is unplayable. Restarting the game starts the same process again. If I don't touch the controller, the frame rate goes back to normal. This is on iPad air.

    Anyone else experience this?

    hey akd - it has cheevos in game center but no leaderboards so in theory he wasn't wrong but man it needs game center leaderboards. It's still hair-raisingly brilliant though.

    I played for a few hours without a controller until my thumb was sore. I started off with gentle pressure just cruising around and as the pressure amped up so did my touch pressure! Really great game. This is my first experience with it. I dove in and played until I got 3 stars on each of the first 3 levels, good times. I actually thought about getting a controller for the first time on account of this game, just not sure how much I would use it. I have heard Mad Catz tossed around, what else is good?

    Looks like the reason why I'm not playing GW3 in Japan RIGHT NOW is because of Square Enix.
    They're the publisher for Activision games here.
    We get cool games in Japan, but we miss out on foreign hits much too often

    Oh ok. Thanks for clarifying that. I may still pick this up tonight. Sounds like most everyone here is quite impressed, and for 5 dollars it's kind of hard to pass up. Thanks slam

    Sorry, my misunderstanding, thought you meant Achievements. We don't use Game Centre leaderboards, we use Facebook and it's greta for some, appreciate not for others, I guess you guys use GC a lot where as everyone here at the office prefers to see progress against their Facebook friends. I'll have a look into it for a future update but no promises at this point.

    good stuff - yep, facebook isn't for me and even my kidz don't use it any more. With Game Center I do think this would be absolute perfection. No matter what game I play, my eldest always asks 'does it have game center?'. I've played with and without a controller and it's great with both - i think i got higher scores with touch controls truth be told. A touch of Detroit-ish techno would make it beyond perfect for me but the music does fit the game very well indeed too. Proper good work - would just love a proper leaderboard to fit the medium.

    Haven't realized before that Gamecenter is that hard to implement.
    Makes me appreciate the releases of one man dev studios that go the extra mile even more.
    Rumor has it that it even seems possible to have both ... ...

    Nick, what data precisely do you take from connected accounts?
    And what do you do with that data?
    Do you store it somewhere?
    Do you sell it or grant third parties access?
    And what is with data of my friends that don't want to share any data with you?

    We have a notification system that shows on each level in the level select menu when one of your friends has beaten your score and displays their profile picture, this is what doesn't work with both systems engaged at the same time. It's not about difficulty to implement.

    We don't take any data from any accounts, or store it anywhere or sell it to anyone, we just use Facebook to generate a friends leaderboard. It's nothing sinister.

    i think GW3 for ios is the best looking ,best sounding , best playing, most modes, best bang for your 5 bucks. I cant believe I am at work right now playing it on my 6+ feels like I brought my ps4 with me hahahaha...That being said bravo...I will say it again its right on Par with all the RadianGames Twinstick shooters they have released with their spot on controls you guys nailed it...This game will forever live on my devices. Hope to see the Evolved patch added later...

    Nick are you with Lucid games? are you PR or a programmer with them? Are you part of the old under rated Bizzare crew? Blur which was marketed poorly imho by activision is one of the best arcade racers ever produced, I was a old dreamcast guy so i loved the Project Gotham games up to the xbox, and of course where i first played Geometry wars in the arcade machine. Retro evolved on the 360 was brilliant than evolved 2 was like the perfect twinstick shooter till this came along and added adventure mode. I hope maybe Lucid can work on Blur 2 and I am glad to see Geometry wars lived on after the studio close and the form of a new company in Lucid...

    Yes am at Lucid, and I was at Bizarre as well. I was producer on Geo Wars and numerous other projects at Bizarre. Thanks for the feedback, glad you are enjoying it.

    nickjdavies, I would like to verify if my assumption is correct that the game is unavailable in Japan due to local publisher agreement issues?
    I know you guys are not responsible for this but I want to know if I should keep my hopes up or I should just cry and get over it.

    How does it perform on a 4S with iOS 7.1.2?

    Pretty well. Have not got one one me at the moment, and not as well as an iPhone6. Anyone on the forum got any first hand experience?

    That is awesome man...It is crazy to think how a hidden easter egg in a racing game car museum could spawn such a amazing game by it self...I was so bummed when Bizarre closed and I kept saying what is going to happen to GW and I remember opening IGN and saw GW 3 was announced and was stoked than found out Lucid was old Bizzare guys...I cant wait to see what else Lucid has up their sleeves going foward... ::fingers crossed:: for Blur 2 or another Project Gotham!

    iCloud sync not working

    Seems like iCloud sync is not working for me. I installed it on my iPhone 6 Plus and my iPad Air 2, and they are not syncing progress between them. I see no iCloud sync settings in the game options either.
