Controller support? (Update)

Hunted online and discovered that some games require the Auto-lock to be set at Never in the General Settings of the iPad. This allowed for full controller support. Now it is time to enjoy my purchase!

I bought this with the understanding that it had full controller support only to realize it only worked on the menu screen. I'm sure the game is enjoyable, but I feel a little cheated. I would have spent my cash on another controller supported game instead if I knew this would be the case. Hopefully the developers will fix this issue and I can begin enjoying the game as it was intended.

Great Platformer with excellent Gameplay

Kudos to the developers for making this game. I beat the game about a month ago getting a perfect score on all the levels and I am still finding myself going in and replaying the levels. It's very addictive and the gameplay is smooth and fun. I hope they come out with more levels soon.


Awesome Game, love the platforming. Got all the Ninja Stars. I would totally love new levels focusing on Combat, so they can feel like a change of pace from the amazing platforming levels.

UPDATE: Thanks for fixing the Dojo levels promptly, I was able to get three stars on all of them.

When finishing the last level of the dojo level though, the screen gets stuck/frozen (wooden background, can still hear game music). I have to close and restart app (level progress does get saved though)

I have an iPhone 4S iOS 7.1.1
