I know there was a lot of people who complained about the controls in this game. Were they ever fixed? Or are they that bad?

Yes, that's something I'd like to know about too. The graphics are great but the controls are suspect - I tried the cone challenge on a mate's phone and it was bloody difficult due to the control scheme, whichever one you choose.

Oh, and does anybody know how many levels this game has?

Think I'll take a chance on the controls and bite on this one for $.99. I know one of the other complaints was how short it is.

Just thought I'd come back to say I definately think it's worthy picking up at this price. It's fun. As far as the controls go, they're unique to say the least. At first, I didn't like them at all, but I'm getting used to them.

Not sure if this is really a compliment, but I think the game would be VERY short with traditional controls as there are 22 levels and the ones I've played are quite short. However, the controls actually make it more difficult to get fast times (and thus stars on each level). Otherwise, it'd be easy to whip through the game.

I'm enjoying this a lot, and I don't mind the controls at all, despite them being different. Definitely worth a dollar, for sure.

Not at all. The only way I could actually describe this would be a real-life game of those cop chases on TV, except with toy cars. That in a nutshell describes the game itself and its controls.

the controls are weird, but you indeed get used to them.
I still would prefer on screen buttons though. But it works.
