    I Love Katamari updated:

    - Improved control response
    - Added tilt indicator to game screen

    I'll test the update later. :)

    What about frame rate improvements? This is what's keeping me from buying.

    It only says that controls are updated.

    I'm going to wait until I hear from people who already have it.

    I'm downloading it now. I'll let you know how it goes. I was pretty disappointed with the first version, so I hope this changes things for the better...

    The game is better. It is faster and the tilt visual feedback helps.

    It feels more responsive compared to the initial release.

    I'll play it more and if I find something different I'll write here.

    I'm very interested in this game. Can anyone tell me if it has problems on a 2G touch?

    The framerate is definitely improved (on a 1G iPT here), but I'm still having issues with the controls.

    The feedback icon is good, but I'm still having trouble getting it to reset to neutral. Stopping the Katamari doesn't work.

    It's definitely better, but it's not yet as smooth or responsive as it is in my dreams.

    I have to agree with earlier comments about it being better now but still not 100% greatness as I want it. Still more fun than Rolando.

    I can only assume, based on the improvement I saw with my 1G, that the framerate would be improved. It's still a little slow, but it doesn't take more than 10 minutes to play a 4-minute challenge anymore.

    If someone can, it would be nice to see a comparison video.
    Or just a video of the new version, at least.

    some reviews are even saying that when the ball gets too big, the framerate is so bad, its unplayable..

    does the update fix the problem?
