Thanks! Just wanted to say, that the frame rate actually is locked, and runs rock solid on the device, but there was unfortunately some lag off and on when screen recording this.

Standard virtual controls, left/right arrows, and jump/shoot buttons. We know how tricky platformers can be to get to control well on iPhone, and designed around that.

So it seems this truth remains true. The game after another round of testing and tweaks has finally been submitted to Apple, and is scheduled to be released the 29th unless there are any issues.
