Just close backgroung apps and/or restart your device.
I tried that, and it still fails. What iOS version are you running? I'm running iOS 5.0.1, so that might be the problem

Edit: I checked, and it turns out I can play the Crazy Box games...I only checked arcade and original...the crazy box games might keep me occupied until a bug fix...I have tons of other games to play :P

I can has more Super Hexagon/Boson X-esque games?

Decided to get it and it runs pretty well on my 3GS. Controls are great and having fun with it, but is there any way to turn off the vibration? It's really annoying and there doesn't seem to be a setting in the options.

Lots of hype for this one.
Think I'll hold off for a price drop, or a few updates to iron out any kinks.
Too many other games out tonight that I want to get into first.

That's odd, I'm running iOS 5.0.1 too (not gonna update to iOS 6, btw).
I can play any game mode just fine. The game crashed twice before the character selection screen but that's all. Which seems to be exactly your problem, since there's no character selection screen on the crazy box games.

Maybe if you reinstall... I don't know

You are supposed to do the best you can for 15 or 20 minutes and then move on to the next machine.

The size of the "world" is perfect for that sort of play. You're not supposed to spend hours driving around the city exploring. Thats not what the game is about...
I would have been happy, if Farsight, the devs of pinball arcade, would have noticed that. Most of their tables are so easy, you can play them more than 60minutes. Nothing to do with the feeling of real pinball tables.

I'm pretty sure I saw a toggle for vibration in the settings.

Oh yes, it looks tremendous on the new iPad. It's like holding a portable Dreamcast. The touch controls are spot on, the weight of the cabs is perfect. I always think back to when I tried the PS2 version years after the DC version, the cabs were too heavy.

2.99 though. I paid 70 for this on Japanese import back on the Dreamcast!

Oh yeah, you double tap the drift button for a Crazy Through. Still trying to figure out Crazy Dashes though.
