Sorry for the confusion about the screen flip, for me its perfect (home button on the right).

Only criticism are the buttons, the left/right buttons seem way too spaced out, 'normally' for a lot of touch screen platformers the left/right buttons are on the left side then the jump on the far right. The right button seems to be in the middle which feels a bit odd

But a nice homage to Mario Bros
Sadly it seems to be a lot of confusion on how the buttons work. The directionals aren't static, to go left you just need to press a bit right, as comfortable as you feel it, it can be close or far to the left. To go left you just have to press on the same place if you already were going left or a bit more to the left for the same results.

Once you get used to it you'll realize the level of precision that can be achieve with this system, check our Alpha Footage in the YouTube channel to get a glimpse of what can be done. You can even play by swiping the screen as if it were a joystick.

Looking forward to an update that allows this to work on iOS 4.3 so I can play and enjoy this, as I'd hoped.

Because there was a lot of grumbling when iOS 5 came out about how it slowed down things on iPod Touch 4, and I can only imagine how awful it would be now with iOS 6. Yikes.
