I am realizing that this game does a very poor job of explaining the in-game mechanics and combos. The beginning tutorial is also very basic. As a courtesy to other iOS gamers, I thought it would he nice to start a topic that serves as a community created guide. After collecting enough content, perhaps we can formalize it into a proper FAQ and submit it. In the mean time, I can ammend this post as more contributions are added.

That's great! I was totally confused at the hurdling part, I kept jumping over the cars (kind of like when I hurdled hurdles in track in field) but this game requires you to make contact with the vehicle and automatically hurdles you over them. I thought that was a bit odd. --- GameFOX for Gamefaqs Firefox users is a must have add-on.
I am glad it has been useful thus far. I have more to add to the guide. I am mulling over the possibility of creating a video tutorial and asking Gameloft to host it on their Youtube channel. --- Your uncle was so dumb he paid the full price of a new PS2 to rent it for a week?
