Bugs in Dropship

Does anybody know if the bugs in Dropship are being fixed for a future update?

The bugs I'm referring to include: the ship sometimes passing through walls/floor, the green pod behind a wall/floor which makes it impossible to complete the mission, periodic transporting the dropship far away from the level and never being able to return.

Any info is greatly appreciated.

I can't see ngmoco just ignoring these. They could be working on a fix for them right now, but just in case, you could try emailing them to let them know. I didn't even know about these bugs.

PS I don't think the second one is really a bug... just sort of an unfortunate thing to happen to you. :P

Same here. I never did see any of the others listed, but that one is a pain. I mostly get it around the lasers, and the laser gets between me and the cargo. The line snaps and I try to move, and I accelerate and crash. Everytime. It needs fixed, but it doesn't make it unplayable.

its not really a bug, but it bugs* me when you go a couple of inches away from the the "ground level"and the game thinks you want to be scored alredy and if you dont have the pod it says yo dont have it, even though you were just startig the level.

*pun intended i guess

Didn't buy this game but played it on friend's ipod for abt 15mins. I did get a few "through the wall" problems. Pretty annoying and frustrating. The game is ok but with bugs like that, there's no chance in hell i'd spend money buying a copy on my iphone. Bugs stink.
