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.

QWOP- Very interesting

QWOP is the most frustrating game you will ever play. It's like learning to run again and once you do learn, it actually becomes fun. Also, the way the man moves will make you laugh for a while. With 5 modes there is plenty to do.

Maybe a few new characters and areas could be added.

Overall: Only buy it if you are looking for a fun, impossible challenge or a change from the usual games on the App Store.

Not like QWOP for computer at all :(

The control scheme and the way the game feels is completely different than the computer version, but not in a good way :(
I was hoping for a more portable, feature full version of the computer one, but it's just not the same QWOP at all.
I'm not complaining soley as I'm bad at this version, I just think the developer would have done a much wiser decision in just recreating QWOP for iPhone, instead of completely overhauling it, as most people buying it are buying it because they liked the computer version.
All the same I think the extra modes are an awesome idea :D

This game is awesome, although you have two analog sticks instead of the buttons you can still get into the rhythm of the game. To make it 5 stars could you fix the lag when you run? It is very annoying. Also could have better instructions for the jumping while running.
