App description: ** Touch Arcade Game of the Week! **

You are the new plow on the block, and today is your day.

How many cars can you shepherd home before achieving grounds for termination?

I had another play session today, on my iPhone 4S and also experienced the missed-input sometimes. I think I'll really love this game once that issue gets sorted!

I'd also like iCade controls

Yeah, I've been having the same problem on my 5s. Overall the touches seem responsive, but I also occasionally hit a point where it seems none of my touches are detected. I swear I'll tap the screen 3-4 times and nothing. Good luck tracking that one down, I hope you can solve it!

I might get it if it had icade controls.

Sounds like a good idea - I have a friend with an iCade and I'll look into supporting it.

Great! I assume you already have keyboard support (WASD or cursor keys) in for your PC/Mac builds, so you should find it really easy to adapt that code for iCade.

Are there any classic 8-bit driving games that inspired DotP? Seriously, the movement really reminds me of Racing Destruction Set.

I'm disappointed there hasn't been an update yet for the ignored-touch bugs; I really wanted to get into this game but found the controls intermittently non-responsive so I shelved it assuming there would be a fix coming.

At long last, I just updated Dawn of the Plow. I fixed that annoying touch input bug, but even better, I added a new mode -

ATTACK OF THE SNOWMOBILES
Fend off evil snow-spewing cars before they escape

Basically, instead of avoiding crashes, you HAVE to crash into the snowmobiles to avoid losing.

Here's a new trailer for the update:

It's a free update, and the game is half off through August 6th, so if you missed it in January, here's a good chance.

Thanks for the support guys, and sorry it took me so long!
