QWOP for iOS

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
What's New in Version 1.07
Due to popular demand, I've turned this into a universal build for iPad, iPhone, iPhone 5. Retina support is added on iPhones.
I also fixed a really stupid bug that was multiplying everyone's scores in the 50km walk by 10. And another bug that was causing slowdown over long play sessions in some events.
But I probably introduced all kinds of new bugs! Let me know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on twitter @bfod.
If you enjoyed the computer version, you will be disappointed. The controls are not the same, he added a tilt feature (which makes it easier), and the "realistic person" is down right creepy. What happened to the challenge that was QWOP. You felt like a national hero when you ran on that track, the music fueling you desire to win the gold. The first time you encounter a hurdle, you charge into it head on without fear, for America. On this version, I don't even feel like my country chose me to represent them in the greatest race known to man. I don't feel like I belong with the prestigious group of those that completed the computer version, just a man that appeared afterward to bask in the glory of those national heroes. So please, if you feel the love your country gives you when you are racing for the gold on the real QWOP, don't pay for this app.
Still good but glitchy
This version still has the challenge (if not more so than the computer version) and I really enjoy that. It is what I expected, so no complaints there. The one place I have issue is the double tap reset. I tap, double tap, tap tap tap tap and nothing happens. I have to keep clicking out for it to work again. After a while I get some serious lag too. Hope they fix this too. If they make those two fixes I would definitely recommend this game. Until they do, hold off because it just adds too much to the frustration the game already presents to you.
I love QWOP. I always play it when I'm feeling down and seeing QWOP fall over at a weird angle always cheers me up! Though the controls are more difficult to use than the computer version, I find this a small setback for the hilarious falls that result. This game is not a serious "got to win" game if that's what you're looking for. This is a leisurely, humorous game that causes a bit of frustration with the controls, but the comical falls make up for it.
