    It's not bad, but I wish it had the same sensitivity as the version for installer.app It plays kind of weird now.

    Thanks for posting this!

    Because of the stupid way Apple posts some apps with an early date, I would have probably missed this otherwise...

    Has anyone else noticed some inconsistencies with the scoring? It seems some times I rack up points a lot faster to begin with. I love the game though and had been waiting for this to hit the app store, it is a great little time killer and is a perfect example of a casual game!

    I purchased the icopter app this morning anticipating the old game I grew to love on my 1.1.4 phone, but to my dismay it seemed like a completely different game with the sensitivity being all off. Think you could just bring back the original version from before? I really loved the original version and was hoping that was what I was paying for =/

    Feature request: Only ask about submitting your high score if it is a local high score, is annoying getting the prompt every time.

    Just to say, an update is coming which makes the copter controls much more sensitive, like the "original".

    Fun game but needs alittle more work on the controls. As stated above the installer copter game rocked!

    I have a few UI requests. I think this looks look really cool with an retro/pixel style copter. And maybe just a solid black background. But you choice :p.

    Just noticed a new version out today which is definitely an upgrade from the first release, but I do have a few comments/requests.

    1) The game play now seems a bit too fast. The responsiveness is definitely better, but it seems way faster than the old 1.1.4 game.

    2) Are there any chances of making the copter look more like the online flash game and possibly adding the sounds with it? (Example: http://www.public.iastate.edu/~elliottj/Copter/main.html)

    Here we Go again

    Here we Go again another crappy game, this crap should be designed for Nokia type phones, Apple are really getting low now.

    Love the game! So much fun and the perfect phone game for the times I only have a few minutes to kill. The update on the touch sensitivity was welcomed as well.

    I would like to ask that the prompt for submitting your score after each crash be removed. its kinda annoying that it pops up every..........single.......time. And the high scores on the website should ALL be reset to ZERO since it's harder now with the new sensitivity.

    Also, some people seem to want the copter to look retro and blocky....i'm sorta the opposite. i love the copter design and was hoping you could make the actual walls, ceiling and floor to match the copter in terms of graphics. just because it's an old conversion doesn't mean it has to look like it. :)

    thanks for the game though.....it's the most played app on my phone.

    Not quite as good as the 1.1.4 version, but I have faith that it will get there. I played that game all the time on my jailbroken phone.

    Great game. Very addictive. I find myself saying, "OK, just one more time." LOL

    Just because there are no fancy graphics and all doesnt mean that it is any less fun.

    Super Monkey Ball is a great looking game, but the game itself sucks!
    iCopter (the jailbroken version anyway) doesn't look as pretty, and was a metric butt load of fun!

    The update made this game so much better with the fact that you could turn off the high score prompt.
