I've no issues with response time on my iPad 3, as my current high score of 2.4m shows, but it is less smooth when compared to my 4S.

To the bloke who said, "The graphics are better on this one which would explain the frame rate", I say this:

Run NFS Most Wanted on your iPad 3.

Point? If it can run that level of graphics smoothly it can run a simple runner game.

I've played the game, but I don't like it as same as Temple Run. Perhaps because animation of this game is not smooth than previous game.

Note: I've played it 2 games on Ipad 2 and iphone 4S.

Just wish they would've stuck more to the Scarlett design from the comics and....fleshed the character out.
In-game Scarlett is so scrawny. Ahem.

No--I tried it--but it should be easy enough to add! We should politely ask for that feature to return. I'll wait a week or two for the initial craziness to die down and then I'll email them to ask about that.

Fingers crossed!

(It may be, in actual playtesting, that iCade affects the scoring. Two possible solutions: either separate leaderboards OR, just don't worry about it! After all, people with faster computers--or iPads!--have had an advantage for years. Many Universal games will have a visibility advantage on iPad. So... some small number of people will have a precision advantage because they bought an iCade. They still need their reflexes and awareness above all!)

Runs great on iPhone 5. Smooth framerate and responsive controls. Overall I'm liking it more than the original TR but the gems for continues kinda kills any sense of accomplishment as for as high score goes, so I'm really unmotivated to keep playing. A shame because otherwise it improves on the original in nearly every way.

What does one have to do to get a scenery change in this game?
My highest score so far is over 200,000 and my best distance is over 3,200 metres but I've yet to see these mine carts I've heard about?
Is it based on distance run in a game? Have I not run far enough? Or is it something else? If it is distance, I'm guessing a LOT of people are never going to see the mine carts, as Game Center says I'm in the top 20%...

Well, you haven't really run very far at all at 3.2k, but the mine sections are a bit random: sometimes you can get two or three within a couple of minutes, and sometimes you can reach a distance of 10k without seeing even one.
