Wait, so just to clarify: the game's been updated and runs now but there are siginificant problems with button input and ui? Is it worth reinstalling? This is/was one of the all time greats.

I didn't find one problem.

I've been having issues with the Restart/Menu/Mute... buttons, but outside of that, no issues with the controls...

Wow, really. All of that is working on my iPad Air 2 8.2.

Hmm... I'm using my iPhone 5... 7.1.2...

I can get it to replay, and mute... but it takes a couple taps to find the right spot I guess... =o/

Menu buttons are a bit tricky but works fine on my iPhone 5 iOS 8.1

And now that I've played more... the skier goes through my jumps when trying to... well, jump(ESPECIALLY while going fast...)... it's like he'll make it half-way up the jump, but then he cuts through the middle of the snow.

Also... I found the 'spot' on the button icons that I need to push - it's like they're still laidout for the 3.5 inch screen (about a half inch in from the side on my iPhone 5 - almost like it's against the top of the screen, which makes sense since when you open your multitasking bar, it shows the game being played in portrait mode...

=o/


Kind of a messy update.

BUT - I AM SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY that after 5 years, one of my all-time favorite iOS games received an update. Hopefully this means that tweaks and fixes are not out of the question in the future (maybe even GameCenter integration???)

Mine has crashed twice, hopefully a tweak will come.

Mine's crashed a few times, too. Feels like the game was stretched to fit the larger screen iPhones but perhaps not properly optimized? Text looks fuzzy and stretched on iPhone 5s and touch zones are off, including screen edges. I really hope they fix it because it's such a classic!

Sooo... This was updated. But on my 5, it's still wonky, the buttons are just like they were and now the controls are kinda funky (the hill starts about half an inch behind my finger instead of right under it....

Aside from that, it looks like the collision detection was fixed...
