    oh, i thought my game is bug free :). i will test your suggestions tommorow and reopen the code to find this tiny bugs (today i need to relax a little ;). thanks for the report.

    and... no there isn't any retina support :(. i have started working an this in the "before retina area" and decided that retina support will not as important than other features. i do the whole game of my own and it took me around 7 months, so redoing all the graphics for retina was to time comsuming but maybe will be come in the future. I think that adding more gamplay features will be more welcome than retina support. most of the time the game is also too fast to enjoy retina graphics. but we will see...

    I actually think this game looks better without retina. Right now it has a colorpencil/watercolor feel that is a huge part of charm for me and I can't help but feel would be spoilt if the game looks too sharp.

    I was just about to say the same thing. It's great as is. More gameplay features are definitely welcomed though :D

    Brilliant game, loving it. I like the objectives system. Good news to hear that GC support is coming. An ipad version (hopefully universal) would be awesome, but I haven't tried it in 2x yet - maybe that's good enough.

    Currently just passed the 60k objective. Would be good to see some more pick-ups as well as the speed-up coins.

    Congrats on a superb first iphone game :)

    If u don't own this game... You should buy it! Lol sorry, I was thinking of saying something like... If u don't own this game, ur not human...or ur not a gamer, but the best I could come up with is simply to recommend it. 5 stars!

    @djflippy,

    Now I'm all curious. I'll need to play this at midnight!

    @Andreas,

    Simple concept, but great execution. Looking forward to future updates and development. Welcome to TA. I also posted a review on iTunes using my alter ego's moniker.

    If I had only read this argument I'd think it was a bit ridiculous, but having played this particular game I actually agree.

    Wow... This game is everything that I love about the app store. A simple, well polished game that completely came out of nowhere. Good work.

    Just checked it out and you're right. It looks excellent. I think I'll stick with playing on the phone for now, as I've made good progress :)

    Started playing this after it was recommended by some friends, and I'm hooked. Can't put it down.

    Oh, and I love the art style and proceduraly generated landscape.

    Behind you!
    Darn you! Darn you all to heck! I have read the entire thread and just can't resist anymore! I'm buying the dang game! I hope you're happy, I hope you're real happy!

    P.S. I haven't even played the game yet, but I already have a suggestion. Make a Night mode! I like the idea of being hunted by the night, but it would be awesome to play the game in a night time mode with the moon, stars, all that, and maybe even make the bird a cute little vampire bird that turns to stone when the sun rises :D I don't know, I think it would be cool!

    Nice little game, still getting the hang of it, but left a 5 star review on iTunes.
