Yup on iPad
Nice to see you're already taking feedback into account
I think that's another major selling point

As far as the button size goes, are you playing it on the iPad? It might make sense for me to throw in a few control options in an update.
I like how the hit area for the buttons is clearly much larger vertically than indicated. Rarely did I miss press when using just my right thumb to control the guy's movement.

...and another thing!

While the game only has the 3 stadiums at the moment, I like how all three are tracking top run stats in 3 different categories:

Top Goals Scored in a Single Run.
Top Time Survived in a Single Run.
Top Number of Baddies Killed in a Single Run.

So you have three ways to top your previous best runs.

25 goals, 3'20" survival and 100 kills
And man does that get frantic! Beyond that point it goes really, really hardcore


Also, I encountered a bug that made my iPad restart: on the second stage, a giant football landed squarely on my head, the game froze and then the Apple logo showed up...
It comforts me in my opinion that footballs truly are evil.

I considered picking this up at $3 at release but won't touch it now. Not going to support these BS price drops a day or two after release.

I understand this sentiment and won't make the same mistake again. Sales at 2.99 have been less than stellar, and unfortunately it was obvious I had to drop the price. I really wanted to avoid the $.99 price point, but it seems like it's unavoidable with how the app store works right now. Anyone who bought it at $2.99, feel free to PM me with your Game Center name, and I'll be sure to give you a promo code to my next release for free.

See that's the thing. With so many releases this week, this went totally unnoticed (maybe because of the nature of the game itself, or because of the price-point), and that's a damn shame, because this is fan-****ing-tastic. Gabrien, I know your stance on these things, but make an exception for this game... believe me, it's worth owning.
