One more thing I'd like to mention is that although I originally intended the game to be on iPad (and I built the game on an iPad exclusively until the end), I actually prefer the iPhone version now, it feels more natural to play it this way.

If anyone ends up trying the game out, I'd love to hear what you think about this!

I like it. The tilt on the phone is great but i just don't like tilt on iPad. I prefer Sad Robot style controls (ie touch left or right to move) on the bigger screen. Great stuff though. The music and feel are great just need some power ups and it could be even better. Would never have picked this up if it didn't get reviewed on TA.

Quick thing - the game dims if you don't touch the screen for a little while. I'm sure there's an easy fix for that.

Thanks slamraman!

Yeah I sort of felt that way in the end about iPad tilt, a sort of lesson learned the long way. For me it's okay, just not as good as on the phone. Thanks for the feedback, it is much appreciated. Someone else (actually many people) mentioned power ups, and it's something I'm considering on integrating on the next update if I can figure out a good way! And I'm working on a fix for the dim! Thanks again!
