Just got it from the US store, and played it for a bit. Looks and sounds fantastic, and plays well on my iPad 4. The gameplay seems pretty simple though. Probably not a game I'll stay interested in for long, but it's fun.

Edit: After playing some more, I'm finding I have a big problem with the game not registering my upward swipes, so I don't jump when I meant to. Probably half my crashes are because of it not jumping when I tried to. I'm pretty sure it's a matter of technique on my part, but I wish it was more sensitive about registering swipes. At least on the iPad it seems to require a fairly large and fast swipe to register.

I really like a lot about this game. The art direction is fantastic, the controls are great and the soundtrack is great too. However, i see no option to pay to disable ads which is a deal breaker for me

I have been playing this too becuase I love board games and the art style is excellent.

Unfortunately to controls are really poor, the boundaries of many obstacles are unclear so you hit them unexpectedly and the currency accumulation rate is abysmally poor (for obvious Freemium reasons).

If they made it a paid App and fixed the horrible controls, I could see myself loving it. As it is, it probably won't last on my Ipad until the morning. A shame.

Hi Bilboa,

Firstly, glad you like how it looks and sounds. Our goal was to make the game simple - especially at the start - but we hope the increasing challenge and variety of obstacles and critters will provide a challenge to even the best players.

Sorry you have found the controls tricky.

We did a huge amount of user testing and tweaking on that aspect of the game, especially because a lot of people will be for the first time playing a runner that is not on rails and is landscape rather than portrait.

With the continuous left/right movement compromises have to be made to make sure that the game doesn't accidentally jump when you mean to move and vice versa.

Hopefully if you persevere a little you'll get a technique that works?
