Not bad, but I found the jumping to be not sufficiently responsive at certain times, which for a game like this is just about the worst flaw it could have. Also I found myself wanting to do tricks while in the air (spins, flips) by flicking/swiping.

Yeah - the control response is really really bad, which pretty much wrecks the whole game. Framerate/scrolling isn't the steadiest either. It's a shame, because the retro style and the micro-loop music are really fun. I love Poppy's house style and if this worked properly it'd be a fitting addition to their line-up.

I've not had the response problem at all on my IPad the framerate is not perfect but Its not terrible by any stretch of the imagination so it might just be an issue on certain devices

Interesting - I just tried it on my iPad and the control response is MUCH better there. It stinks on both my iPod Touch and iPhone 4, but the iPad is far more playable.
