D-pad problems with Guerilla Bob, others?

I've got quite a few dual stick shooters on my iPod Touch. Most seem to work ok. But for Guerilla Bob, and to some extent Solomon's Keep, I have trouble with the left d-pad movement control. In Guerilla Bob is very difficult for me to move to the right (same with Solmon's Keep, but not as bad).

I'm tempted to send it Apple under warranty, but I have no problems with similar dual stick shooters like Minigore, Critical Wave, and Meteor Blitz so I'm not sure if it's a hardware issue or just plain poor control due to the games themselves. In fact, for those other games mentioned the movement (left d-pad) works great.

Anyone else experience these problems? Think I should send it back anyway?

No. You're just not used to the controls, that's all.

I've been trying. And I'm sorry, but I don't see why something like Guerilla Bob controls so poorly (movement wise) when it's the same developer as Minigore, which is perfect.

Chillingo is a publisher not a developer.
