This game is still as fun as it always has been, but playing on the iPad I feel the controls could be better adjusted to such a large screen.

The natural position when holding the device makes for the thumbs reaching halfway on the side. Turning left seems not to be a problem when touching in the middle, but the right side is occupied by the powerup field. Instead, I would recommend the powerup field to be dispensed with, replaced by simultaneous touching of both sides of the screen with the thumbs to activate a powerup. A counter could then be located in a corner of the screen to indicate its status.

I also feel it is needlessly bothersome to reach the pause icon, located in the top middle of the screen. Most games stick it in a corner somewhere, and I have to agree with the idea. Even though a centered icon looks aesthetically pleasing on the screen, it is hard to reach on a ten inch screen, especially when the action gets frantic.

I don't know if it has already been asked, but why do you use home-made leaderboards instead of Gamecenter leaderboards ?

When I press leaderboards, GC opens. Sure you're in the right thread?

Default What is the 16th achievement???

I completed the game and got all listed achievements of which there are 15, but it says I have 15/16 achievements. What is the 16th achievement?

Will there be another update with more achievements or is this it?

I enjoyed playing it!

The big jump during 4 seconds (it is a hidden achievement) ?

Ha ha was just about to say the same thing. I must admit i had forgotton about this game, the update made me play it again and damn its so good, i've put it back into my main folder now !

The graphics are great, controls work well, very polished game, well worth picking up if you havent got this classic yet

just went through some of the new iTunes reviews, it's frick'n ridiculous how people are going off about having to pay for the new content. Damn shame that it seems like everyone wants everything for free...

I use to think that Android reviewers were the whiniest bunch of babies, but it looks like iOS gamers get the gold medal in that regard these days.

So the new content is worth the purchase? Definately not saying they shouldn't charge for it, but it sounded like there wasn't a whole lot of new tracks. How does the new mode play?

I actually tried last night to click on it just to even see how much it was (assuming $.99 but wasn't sure) and it didn't do anything. No pop-up box, etc.

One of my favorite racers (although technically not really a racer) so probably will get it regardless.
