Looking for feedback/beta testers [Cops 'n Robbers]

Cops 'n Robbers is nearing the finish line, and I would like to get some feedback on the game itself and it's website. I've set up a Testflight recruitment URL (http://tflig.ht/10u2urd) if anyone is interested.

Also, the website has been revamped to add a bit more interest.

I'd love to hear peoples' thoughts on either.

Thanks

Played for a few mins so far. Have noticed a bit of problems with the controls response, I quickly learned if I'm trying to queue a direction I need to hit the button more than once, then it might work. This makes it easier to be caught than it should be. Turning the game from the fast and frantic game it should be to a frustrating experience that will be over soon after you are noticed. I like what you've done. I just think it needs a not of work.

I have to wonder if that is an iPhone 5 specific issue. I've tested on a 3GS, a 4S, an iPad 3 and a iPad Mini and don't have a problem with the response on the controls.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention though. I'll have to see how I can get a hold of an iPhone 5 to double check...

EDIT: I think I know what's happening. The game only responds to tapping. If you don't lift your finger/thumb between taps, it won't act the way you think it should. I'll have to think about how to fix that.

Yep, played with that in mind helped a lot. Guess I'm getting lazy with my tapping recently, gonna put that down to swipe controls

EDIT playing a bit more, I cleared level 2 when it crashed to my home screen, reopening the game took me to the start of level one as if I'd chosen new game at the start

I'll submit an update later today that lets you drag from one direction to another. Want to add a few more fixes first.

I think I know what caused that crash (tapping the continue button before it's displayed the level score). I've disabled the button until the end of level screen is finished displaying info.

Added. Let me know if you have problems getting the game; I'm still getting used to TestFlight and I'm trying a bit of an experiment with you.

It downloaded smoothly with no problems. I've played it a little and the controls are a bit difficult.
EDIT:btw I'm using iPod 4
