Default Frustratingly fun iPhone game! FlatRun

Found this game, it's pretty fun. I've become addicted to it recently. It's just a nice looking endless runner, super simple.

Would personally prefer tap controls rather than swipe and it's not showing up on Game Center for me, although the app description says it's supported.

Nice small file size though - 681 KB download.

I'm having so much fun with this, I've not had any ads and been playing for half an hour. I've got my brother, my sister in law and my two nephews all competing with each other and sending screenshots over iMessage as evidence of our scores.

Hi, I actually made this game. I've gotten a lot of response about having tap controls from people I've shown this too. At first, I wasn't going to have the touch controls because the swiping was there as a little added difficulty for the reflexes, but I'm going to update the game soon with some things and I'll test tapping out. Maybe have a swipe/tap toggle.

As for game center, it should also be in there soon. I was planning on getting it into the first version of this, but some stuff came up and I just wanted to get this out. This is my first game and I wanted to see how the review process went.

Glad you seem to like it. Got some other stuff in the works.

Cheers,
BirdBase

That's awesome, nice work man. I have a feeling the tap controls are going to make it a lot easier for people. Could be good, could be bad, only time will tell. Game Center in the next update, when I have more time.

Just finished the tap/swipe control toggle. I think it looks nice, but I'll leave that up to you when the update gets released.

I'm too impatient for 7 day app reviews.

Maybe create two different and separate Game Center leaderboards for swipe (hard) and for touch (easy) controls.

Not a bad idea. Over an hour or so testing last night I seem to get similar results with tapping and swiping controls. I do like the tapping, but I tend to prefer swiping.
