game could be great but I've got some problems with the controls, they just don't feel right to me.. like awp69 said, it's floaty and frustrating. Changing the size of the joystick won't change the fact that it's still floaty.. at least for me. Apart from this it's a really nice game

Controls are floaty, but it is still playable. It's just frustrating when you are trying to maneuver on smaller platforms or on cliffs when trying to get lost pizza, coz chances are, you fell off the cliff at least once.

For what it's worth, it's still a great game, but it has it's lackluster moments.

It's playable. But, yeah, I fell off the edges more than once to the point where it was too frustrating (particularly on those smaller platforms) so I stopped playing. Hope the controls can be tweaked a bit. Think it could be a really good game.

I found annoying bug. The game doesn't save correctly layout customization for controls. Every time I find controls placed differently, with another size and opacity. I don't know if it happen after cloud sync nut it's not first time.

Thanks for your input! What control tweaks would you recommend? Is the virtual joystick the reason its diffucult to control or the spincraft behaviour itself?

That should be fixed when the update gets approved by Apple. And yes it has something to do with iCloud.

It's really a combination of both I guess. When you're using the joystick, it's just floaty and your ship reacts slowly so it makes it difficult to be precise when trying to get from one level to another.

There is an update available now! This is the version we were supposed to get out for the release, heh.

Can you guys try out if the added relative joystick makes controlling the ship easier?

Now we start working at making the controls better and even more customizable! Also lots of other updates planned, but let's get the gameplay perfect first

Got the update and I'm really enjoying this, controls could use some improvement but it's not a deal breaker, I think the inertia is what is making it difficult for some people, but after a while you get used to it. Great level design and graphics. I hope to see more levels for this down the road!
