Fun but controls need help

When I swipe up to jump on my iPhone XR, it asks me if I want to quit. Not sure what the work around is, please help. Already paid to remove ads. It would also be nice to sync across devices so I can play/restore purchases on my iPad since the phone version is so sensitive.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! On the iPhoneXR there is a grey bar at the very bottom of the screen, is it possible you are swiping that up? Or does it happen when you swipe up in the middle of the screen too? Would love to fix this for you! Please email us at:

Excellent Retro Love Ode

I’ve been playing this constantly. I love what it’s based off of and all the easter eggs sprinkled throughout are awesome. Swipes seem to be registering better now for some reason as well. My only ask is for an IAP to remove ads. I want to support this but don’t see any option anywhere to do so even though someone in a previous review said they paid for that IAP. Add that and this will be perfect 👍🏻

EDIT: I didn’t realize I could keep scrolling past the air tricks to find the IAP’s. Maybe make a 3rd purchase menu with just the IAP’s? Either way, glad I was able to support this awesomeness 👍🏻👍🏻

Glitched that just make the game IMPOSSIBLE

Hi, So I have been playing this game for quite a while now and I on once deleted it because it was too hard, like when I made it to the 2nd underground ninja turtle level, it glitched right before I flicked the lever making me die. Also in the same ninja turtle level when I passed that… mouse… guy it glitched making me run into one of the pipes… and that’s not all, on the streets when I delivered a movie I glitched for about 10 seconds and just teleported me into a person. So I would really like you to fix the map, ESPECIALLY the 2nd underground ninja turtle level, Thanks 😁
