I freaking love this game. The flash game was great and this port is perfect. The new touch controls suck but the classic controls are fantastic.

The only problem is my GF is way better at this game than me. A fact she will not let go.

Thanks so much for the port!

Awesome, glad you are enjoying it! Just out of curiosity, can you elaborate on what bugs you about the touch controls? I admit I'm partial to classic myself, but it would be great to get some feedback to improve touch.

I made a similar comment in my app store review. The touch controls just don't work for me. They're not nearly as responsive as classic and I can't imagine doing half as well with those after switching.

I really think you'd be well served to change the default to classic.

Ok, thanks for the feedback My reasoning for making touch the default was that I thought it was the more natural control scheme for people who had never played Dolphin Olympics, whereas seasoned players could switch to classic and go with that. Of course I may have been mistaken so it's great to get feedback from players as to what they prefer.

Thanks, sorry it took so long! As for the name change, it turns out Olympics is a trademarked word, so we had to change it to something new.
