    There is a nice little animation of the fire being blown out but I just cant swipe the screen and take a screenshot at the same time :(

    At the end of every level, you have like a 'final round' where you have some boulders to frantically press to destroy or some fires to extinguish. If you succeed, you get these screens :D

    Some screens from the levels:
    Here I managed to crack a boulder and take a screenshot at the same time :p

    Here is a screen with some of the 'tunnel like' blocks (you have to squeeze in between the top and bottom blocks.

    But I died taking the screenshot above :(

    Yeah... this game is pretty good actually, but its not getting much attention. Maybe because its a unity game?

    I personaly love the art style. version 1 was good but flawed because of slow startup time and missing global leaderboards. But that's all fixed now :D

    Whats wrong with being a Unity game? I must have missed the group hate on that.

    Nothing wrong with it. I just read here and there about some less positive feedback when the engine is unity. Not sure why :confused:

    Anyway, I just updated the first post with new screens from the update. Hopefully more people will try the game. I find it really fun :D

    Hi McGill,

    Yeah.. I died there too the first time. There are new game mechanics in this update. With fire, you need to swipe towards the fire (or is it on the fire?) to blow it out. With boulders, you need to keep tapping it until it breaks. I think these two new game mechanics makes the game much more interesting :p

    Anyway, see the Instructions menu for more details. I have some screenshots of the two new game mechanics in the first post.

    Note that the levels have changed, so it will clear all your highscores you made in ver 1. I know it sucks.. lol But its worth it. The new levels are super fun :p

    Ah, thanks for the heads up, it doesn't really matter because I wasn't that good at it, haha.

    Just saw that Little Runner is one of the Apple Staff Favorites :p

    Anyway, apparently the soundtrack for Little Runner is available for download from the Red Rocket Games website here.

    The game still appears to be somewhat slow starting up and a little bit choppy(not by that much) during gameplay

    Yeah... I agree. It only loads slightly faster. I wish you could just tap on the screen and skip all the logos loading up. If all the loading is really necessary, at least give us a loading progress bar. lol

    About the choppiness, I dont get that anymore with this update. Its pretty smooth. Have you tried restarting your iDevice before playing?

    My only complaint is the fire. Its really hard to extenguish at the higher levels lol...

    I love the new update! But I agree that there is still some lagging problems, which can effect putting the fire out in time. I hope the next update fixes this. Even so, this is one of my favorite games and extremelly underated.
