Controls WORK fine & there ARE 9 levels!

Don't listen to the haters, experience this yourselves and read the directions carefully in initial gameplay so you know what you are doing before you give it a rating.

I want another Cops & Robbers... And I'll pay for it too! (that, or update this game with more levels?)

** TOO SELECT OTHER LEVELS MOVE RIGHT BY TAPPING RIGHT SIDE OF SCREEN or TILTING iPhone RIGHT(holding iPhone vertical, stright up & down). If you want to go back, tap or tilt left!!! (depending on your settings, where you choose if you want to play by touch or by tilt. Both work!) **

To jump good tap as near to the BOTTOM of the CENTER of the screen that you can (like 1/2" from edge of screen), and you won't have any problems!

Review: this game IS original, objective always being the same, get Cash, get Diamond, GET AWAY! But with the changing of the levels, and new traps added, it keeps its fun factor! It is an easier game though.

In cop mode it is... Finish the level before the robber. (Not too thrilling, but it gets intense when you're neck and neck!)

** If anyone tells you there is only 1 level or the controls are unresponsive, they honestly don't know what they are doing. **

I had a blast with this game, the graphics are not bad at all (I have 3G and it didn't lag when in gameplay). 3D enviroment, and you get to change the color of your clothes, and your gender (score for some of you!!! *winks*)

You can also play with the iPhone horizontal OR vertical!!

Awesome game !! & free!! Hello??

Wow .. I love this game !! The graphics are impressive, the game play is fun & dare I say easy & for all the cry babies out there talking about the so called bad controls & jump of this game ... Please ,,, u must not know how to play because the controls r just fine for me ... But then again I do consider myself a true gamer ... Ok it's a phone game app & it's free ... Hello people it's a no brainer !!! Get this game ... It's fun , free , great graphics & different game modes ... Grow up cry babies the game does give u tips about the game play including obstacles & jumps ... It's all in the timing & your skill to play this game .... Enough said !!!


The robber mode is too easy, and the cop mode is too difficult.

It's like going from a rock-solid balance beam to a loose wobbly tightrope.

The robbers basically run on their own, with a few occasional pokes for jumping. The cops are all over the road, run into objects because the leap point is "off", and drop off the sides of buildings.

When the cops DO catch up with the robbers, the game ends abruptly and announces that the robber "got away". YET, when the robber is losing (in robber mode), there are several warnings of partially closed cell doors before the robber is FINALLY caught.

So my question is, what in the world do the developers have against cops?

This would be a darned good game if it was consistant. Yes, it should be difficult to play. It's called, "challenge". But it shouldn't be impossible, and it shouldn't be biased.

One star now. You can earn more stars when the cops catch more thieves. 
