Just discovered that the in-game 'rate' button isn't working in IOS8.

Will be submitting an update with a patch, and also some added checkpoints in level 2-1. If anyone spots anything else that could use sorting out, please let me know and I'll try to squeeze it in.

Been playing this a little and it's pretty cool. Can't figure out how to import your own skins tho? Any image I try and use doesn't work well some help with what size or type of images were supposed to use would be good.

I've been sick, but I'll add some sample textures to the support page later today.

Space Grunt is compatible with 64x32 minecraft skins - you can google to find thousands (millions?) of 'em, free for download.

There's a good diagram here showing how they're laid out:

The TRON skin looks cool - I have a Captain America one I like. You're doing very well on the leaderboards so far.

It's pretty hard, especially in the later stages. Stage 4-4 has a sequence which makes Flappy Birds feel like a walk in the park, but I'm pleased to see a few people have made it through.

I've come across a slight problem. Level 2-1 I can't get the third coin because I've already got three buddy's following me so when ever I get close to where the third coin is the buddy's are shooting the box and pushing it along blocking the path to the coin? Is there a way to deactivate the buddy's or am i screwed?

It's possible to get that coin even with four buddies. I recommend having laser equipped, rather than spread/pulse.

While approaching that section, you'll see a red coin. Instead of getting the red coins, stay low to the ground, and descend when possible. You'll end up next to a cliff, with the crate above you. Accelerate up full speed, right past the crate, then drop back down where the big coin is. The crate might get hit once or twice, but more often than not you'll be able to avoid blocking the path. If you mess up, you can kill yourself and restart in a convenient place.

I can post a video if needed.
