App description: QWOP is the local sporting hero of a prosperous country in the scandinavian alps. Unfortunately, it is too cold there for an outdoor track, and QWOP has come to the championships without completing his training!

You can help QWOP achieve his sporting dreams! You just need to show him how to run.

Control QWOP's legs and arms by moving your thumbs around in the diamonds on the screen. Move your thumbs in clockwise circles to make him run. Make QWOP lean forward and back by tilting your device.

And whatever you do, don't let QWOP's body touch the ground!

- Five game modes: 100m, Hurdles, Long Jump, Steeplechase, and 50km Walk!
- Hilarious physics engine.
- GameCenter leaderboards. Set a high score and challenge your friends.

Really? No posts? Ok. Well this is just the same as QWOP on the computer but uses some new controls that I can't get the hang of. It has updated graphics and like 5 modes, which I'm pretty sure are new. Anyways, it's just QWOP on the iPhone. What more could you want?

I'm surprised more people aren't posting... this game is awesome
I loved it on PC, but it's even better on iOS. The new controls take some getting used to, but you have more control than you did on the keyboard, which is nice. I haven't tried the other modes, since I still can't quite make 100m without eating dirt.

This game rocks!

But no matter what I do, I can't seem to run straight!
Any strategies?!

Nothing on iOS has mad me laugh as much as this in a long time!

So far I do best with a leg stretched out front & back, then scoot one leg at a time. Haven't figured out how to walk properly yet.

A must-have title if you find delight in toting with physics...

Great game, steep learning curve as the flashversion but that's what makes it fun!

Long jump is my favorite event and i would like more events like for exampel high jump.

Any interest in a highscore thread?

Finally bought this game today. Have made it about 7 meters out of 100 with no kind of actual knowledge of what the hell I'm doing. GF and I laughed a lot so that was worth the buck entry fee.

I guess I'm finally going to pick this up. I've been in the mood for one of these crazy games. I used to play one called Rain Dancer I think that was like this. I love finding old gems on the AppStore.
