Sucks that you couldn't get it running better on our 2Gs. Is it worth redownloading for us? (low on space, otherwise I'd try it)

Wouldn't complain if I hadn't paid for it with no indication that it wouldn't work.

Tried on the 3gs and much better performance. Still not quite up to the 4 but the difference is negligible. Well done, thanks!

Don't just yet, but it might be worth sticking around just a little longer, we're doing more and more performance improvements on every update.

Follow @FreakZoneGames on Twitter, I'll be reporting upgrades etc.

For others, follow @FreakZoneGames on Twitter and like us on Facebook, we'll be congratulating high scorers and giving previews of future games from there first!

Has the update with the achievements been submitted yet?

Scores, not achievements yet.

Wanted to see how well people score before I add the high score achievements

How's everybody enjoying the updates?

If anybody wants to friend me on Game Center I am DISTANTJ.

On iPad the left/right buttons are still too far apart. I can move them as a set, but I can't adjust the distance they are apart, which for me at least is kind of uncomfortably far apart. Any chance you could add adjustment of that, or just have a few options to choose from (in fact, I think I'd rather that - in Reckless Racing 2 allows complete customization, but I find it too hard to get right. I'd rather there were just a bunch of preset options to choose from).

Does it not help to scale them down?

How do you scale them down? I didn't think that was possible. That would certainly help, so how do you do that?
