    I've had this issue as well, I thought it was damage related it certainly seems to coincide with getting shot a lot. It's definitely a full stop rather than a slow down

    Of course if you're destroyed you might stop but I'm sure that's not what you're talking about.

    Which device/iOS are you on? It would be awesome if someone would have reproducible steps for that bug but my hopes are not too high since it has been quite elusive.

    Wild guess: if you reverse the device you're still having the trouble?

    Didn't want to say anything because I thought it was just my fingers but I've had my boat randomly stop moving before too? It's only happened a couple of times and lifting my finger and pressing again gets my boat moving so I just presumed it was my finger not registering or slipping off the screen. But thought I'd mention it since other have experienced it to.

    GOTW for me. I love everything about this game and hope this one rolls in the dough for XperimentalZ, well deserved.

    Ive had it on several occassions, eg. after a jump and after a checkpoint / lap.

    But dunno exactly what the logic is.

    Im on iphone 5, ios 7 (latest)

    Could this "issue" multiple people have reported be they're actually getting hit by the boat Shadow, whose weapon slows boats and disables their weapons? Just a question :)

    Yeah it's definitely not when I'm destroyed, that's quite specifically being destroyed! It doesn't happen often but it does happen and I can't put my finger on what causes it sorry. I'm on the touch 5g with the last iOS 7 version.

    It's not a game breaker by any stretch so (from my pov anyway) I wouldn't worry too much about it

    The flip side of not appearing often makes it much more elusive, otherwise that would have been fixed months ago.

    From what we gathered, it appears only on iPhone 5 (dunno about 6, and perhaps on iPad air (we can't reproduce it on pod4, iPad 1, iPad mini) ), it can appear randomly (on any track, any class, any boat, in air or on water, at any moment) in every 10-20 games. It makes you lose the input, you have to release the throttle and touch again to re-accelerate.

    I suppose that the trouble is not related to the stun, since it appears that the user will stay still until he re-taps.

    It be curious to know if the bug can be reproduced if you play upside down (with the home button on the other side), to eliminate a 'lost-touch-border-effect' potential cause.
     
  12. So i'm about to buy this game. Anything i need to know before purchase ? (iPad 3 latest firmware)

    Yes, prepare to have fun! From what we know, there's no specific issue related to iPad 3.

    It should be fine! Just to be clear (I think that others will agree), even the lost touch issue is really minor. I'm not even sure if we'll manage to put our finger on it.

    Supported devices are from iPod 4 and iPad 2, iOS 5.1.1, up to iPhone 6. We made sure to resolve issues related to iOS 8 and new devices just before submitting.

    Big issues, if there's any, are yet to be reported to us.

    I'm on a 5S and haven't experienced this "touch issue". The game plays smooth.

    Over and above all games this week (and that does include some killers, it must be said) this is absolutely the most fun I've had.

    Loving the simplicity of play mixed with a genuinely skillful progression that involves really learning the mechanics.

    Graphics, awesome. Sound, just fantastic (that title theme reminds of save game screen music from Sonic 3).

    Has put so many smiles on my face.

    Thank you devs :)

    This was just awsome to play :D. Although it crashed once on my iPad mini with retina display but otherwise it was excellent

    Hmm, it would make it even weirder if it would happen on 5 but not 5S (unless some obscure system problem was resolved with the latest iOS). Still wondering if the orientation (home button left or right) can change something.

    That is just awesome to hear!

    Yeah, its really a nice game.

    About the touch issue, i play with home on right side, will try to reverse.
    It is not depending on action, happened both after and without shooting, after jumps and on level ground etc.
    Played on b4 without it happening, then happened 10 times on b5, odd....
