I love the art style and it's a runner without IAP. Might pick it up when I'm home
What are controls like? Can I play the game without tilting?

Yep, liking the art style as well. Also a good bloody runner, looks fun. Also the 3rd screenshot indicates tilt or touch controls.

Tilt controls are used to make the chicken run forward and backwards, but you don not have to constantly tilt your device. I reached my personal high score (5870) without tilting at all!

I just got Headless HD but it is not scale right because I bought it for the Iphone 5s and it says that it is universal and compatible. Now, I want to buy the other version as I just read on the forum that it is compatible only for the Ipad.

How do I get a refund from Apple about that ?
