Flawed controls
For a game like this where precise timing is the difference between a speed run and death, you need great controls. It's tough to do on the iPhone, but League of Evil showed that it's entirely possible, even during speed run death traps. Mos Speedrun fails in this regard, dropping an otherwise awesome game down to a mediocre three stars. This could be partially fixed in d-pad mode by recognizing any taps on the right side of the screen as a jump attempt, rather than limiting to taps that precisely hit the jump button. Otherwise, the retro TV look is a nice touch, the challenges are good, and the game seems like it could be as addictive as the aforementioned League of Evil. Unfortunately, with these controls, it falls short.

My favorite iPhone platformer. The music is great, the graphics are charming, and the controls are intuitive. I recommend switching to dpad controls for increased precision.

Controls WERE ridiculous
I take it back. I hated the controls at first but gave them a chance, now I've figured it out and am totally addicted.

Love Mos Speedrun!
My newest addiction. Love the graphics and indie style. Love Mos! I'm not too great at it, but I'm getting better! Multi-tasking would be cool so session doesn't have to restart every time. Also, sometimes Mos seems to be standing on air next to a ledge; she should probably be allowed to fall when she's that far over. Those are only two suggestions. The rest is up to me. :-) Love the game! Keep up the excellent work!
