This a really good game and it looks great. The only thing I don't really care for is if you lift your fingers off of the screen it pauses the game and it gets really irritating. Other than that it is really a lot of fun and worth the .99 cent sale price.

I just picked this up. I'm hoping the 3D mode works good, cuz I was really disappointed with the 3D mode for ground effect. I really love the way it looks in the videos, so if it's at least that good on my ipod, then I will be very pleased.

Most people would call that a feature.

I think that an auto pause like this for such a frenetic game like this is awesome...I'd love to see that in more games. Too easy to get killed while hunting for a pause button.

Probably so. Maybe I just need to keep my fingers on the screen a little better. Just seems a little weird, I'm sure I will get used to it.

tip: Lets try to change "camera delay" parameters inside "Options/Gameplay" menu (50% -> 100%). Additionally try to change "camera mode" to "crossed" in "Options/3D Mode" menu (some changes to other 3D parameters are needed). You can always restore default parameters if anything goes wrong.
