    Post if you finished SMB on the iPhone!

    I beat the main 100 levels - with minimal Crowns so I obviously didn't unlock the extra 10 stages.

    To what extent did you finish it?

    I was bored of it before they even finished harking on and on about it in that keynote video ages ago.

    The game takes patience tho, but it gets very fun and difficult.

    just pull back to almost neutral and roll forward very slowly. start turning once you are moving slowly and are totally in control. It shouldn't feel awkward or lucky if u make it.

    I'm stuck on the U-shaped level in the first world - the one with the moving platform at the bend and the bumpers on either side.

    Driving me insane.

    But damn it's addictive.

    Man, I wish I had some of the free time as you all!

    I am barely through the first few levels. I have such a hard time controlling him and the speeds throw me off at times when turning sharp corners

    Granted, I've only played it for about 15 minutes, but controlling your speed and turning seems impossible, I wish that there was a tutorial stage or something of the sort (maybe there is and I just can't find it).

    True but in a small way, that difficulty keeps me on my toes and keeps me coming back to play it.

    Wha...???

    I can't get past the first world. The sensitivity just isn't right for me.
    And it kills me that once I leave the game I can't come back and restart at the level I lost at.

    It's all about the tilt. The iPod touch/iPhone needs to be held basically flat as if you were rolling a ball on the surface of the device - you get the hang of it after a while but it's the friction I'm concerned about, the monkey seems to skid a bit too easily.

    This should be titled the "I can't beat Super Monkey Ball" thread.

    I can't seem to beat level 1.10 and I really want to see what the second set of levels is like.

    Is there a way to save your progress at each individual level or only every 10? I'm getting sick of repeating the first 10 levels and I'm scared it's gonna cause me to lose interest in this Awesome game.

    Um, how do you unlock the second world? Do you have to get all the crowns? I beat levels 1-10 but didn't get all the crowns and it won't let me go on to the second world.

    Now you have to beat World 1 on Hard and you will have unlocked World 2.
