As a big fan of Sumo Hoppers, I do have a couple of suggestions for future updates:

- Add advanced controls option, which makes the player in control of the angle and amount of stretch of the leg, perhaps changing angle by dragging the finger around the button that's already there?
- Add replay feature.
- Add level editor, maybe.
- Add wind feature.
- Add speed control.
- Add ability to change player's colors.

Oops, I realize now this would make the game identical to ... Sumo Hoppers. Oh, well.
But honestly, I LOVE the game in its current state, the simplicity makes it beautiful. One button games are perfect fit for touch screens.

Exact-Psience, nice! That's excactly what makes Wrestle Jump so special for me too! Glad you like it!
My eldest beat me (once) but I beat my youngest. They both love it and were laughing alot. It really is good. Random but not random. Good old fashioned fun.

And suddenly I remembered something I always thought was missing from Sumo Hoppers: a FOUR-player mode. Imagine two more dudes, upside down on top of the existing ones, with legs pointing upwards. Would control pefectly well I guess, simply add two more buttons. How about that?

Redegard, those are all good ideas A few of them I've already implemented tested on Wrestle Jump and might end up in some of the upcoming versions of the game. The four player mode sounds so ridiculous that I think I'll make a quick test version it just for the heck of it That'd be a totally different game then, though

slamraman, that's so cool to hear that your boys like the game too!

Exact-Psience, as for the Black wrestler - I still lose to him like 50% of the time and I've been playing the game for like 2 months now… Some kind of a difficulty option might be implemented in the future. Hopefully you'll beat him too someday

oooooomonkey, the problems with iPod 4g most probably have something to do with its relatively low RAM. Wrestle Jump's textures are so large (and there's quite a few of them) that the devices memory runs out. I might have to reduce the texture sizes on iPod 4g. I'll get back to you next week with a test build! I'm pretty much off the grid this weekend so I can't do much work on the game then. Thanks again for helping me out!

In the first update of Wrestle Jump there's probably just going to be the iPod 4g fix, a few more levels and some minor performance optimizations so I can get the update out as quickly as possible!

Sounds great, more levels would be nice. As a matter of fact, a idea worth looking into would perhaps be randomized levels. Either the level structure itself, the terrain, or simply added stuff like creates etc., which could be placed randomly on the levels to make each arena fresh.
The possibilities, the possibilities!

@oivoi does this game run well on the iPod Touch 3G? I see there are issues with the 4G so I'm a bit hesitant... Looks great!

Check out Spark It Up, an award-winning music/action game with my music!

It probably won't even let you download it onto a 3G.

Redegard, adding random game objects (such as those crates you mentioned) on the levels sounds brilliant. I'll do some tests on that, thanks! And "tack so mycket" for the positive review on the swedish app store!

veecheech & Gabrien, as Gabrien mentioned Wrestle Jump cannot be downloaded onto iPod Touch 3g for now. iPod Touch 4g support will be added soon, though.
