Yeah, me neither. Anybody want to TOFTT and see what's in it and how the controls are?

I'll probably be picking this and Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games when it comes back to the App Store just as (virtual) memorabilia.

For all the trouble it would take to license the Olympics, the game doesn't look that good to me

How appropriate that Mew posts this! Bet you are having lots of fun being there!

And doesn't appear that they needed to license it as this lists: by IOC/VANOC/USOC. 2010 IOC. (International/Vancouver/US Olympic Committees respectively)

This is actually really good. If you like the track and field game, you will like this.

So, the control mechanism is like Playman Track & Field with the "tap in synch" buttons? If so I tried many times to get into t&f and never could get it

Yes. So if you had trouble with that or didn't like it, you should probably avoid or wait for a lite version. There are some cool events here.

Sonic got pulled and said it was to avoid confusion. Possibly confusion with this game as the Official game of the Olympics? Maybe Sonic will return with the Official badging removed.
