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.
Updated for 64-bit, so you can continue to play on new versions of iOS.
This was a bit of an adventure, since I haven't released an iPhone app in 5 years. If you see any issues, let me know and I'll fix them up as soon as I can.

Use to love this game and now I love it again !!!!
I'd honesty give it zero stars if it would let me... let me start with this is no QWOP. Instead of you pressing the buttons Q, W, O, and P you now have to rotate TWO joysticks each with four functions for the legs that the joysticks control... the only thing that this states with QWOP honestly is the title, the motivation, and the fact that your character is apparently named QWOP. If you had a hard time using four buttons then have fun with what essentially equates to 8 and half the time you legs are very much exaggerated and don't match what they should be based on where the joystick is moved.
Humorous, intelligent, innovative game
Most games map complex actions to simple button presses. Press one button and jump; press another button and perform an acrobatic combination attack. QWOP's abstraction of running is hardly less complex (and certainly more difficult) than actual running. Players must use their thumbs to independently control the position and movement of the runner's legs. Initial attempts to take even a single step will quickly devolve into slapstick, off-balance comedy. Perspiration will develop the talent to approximate actual running. Fun and funny. After I managed to hobble a whole 100m, I gave the game to my father. He's been at the iPad for nearly an hour now. Entertainment for the whole family.
Oh, all the crash bugs have been fixed in this new version. Highly recommended.
