Holy crap, there's so many different game modes, and each one is surprisingly different, especially since the goal of each game is basically the same. My favorite so far is the Squishy mode, but I can totally see Chaos hooking me after I get a little better. =oP

Now... while I do think that the controls are great, is there any way you could make it so we can place them anywhere? Also maybe make the deadzone (or whatever it's called... the area you can push the button outside of the visual icon boarders) larger?

That's the only little nitpicky thing I can bring up. I do sometimes miss the throw button and have to look down to make sure my thumb is on it again. =oP

Yeah, tiny controls seems to be a fairly common complaint. I'm trying to get them working nicely without over expanding outside the "controller" area. Game's crazy enough without having to deal with your thumbs being over the gameplay!!

I'll see if I can come up with something neater.

Right on, thanks so much!

And anyone who's even remotely into Super Crate Box type platformers should definitely check it out.

Something I'd forgotten, actually. If you pause the game and tap the bottom the screen, you can switch between 4 control schemes.
2 is the same as 1, but with the movement on the right and the jump/throw on the left..

3 and 4 are similarly flipped, but with "swipe" controls instead of button ones.
Set it to 3, and your left thumb stays as movement, but your right thumb switches to a secondary swipe pad. Swipe up to jump, or left or right to throw a sphere.

I'd kinda forgotten all about the different control schemes, if I'm honest, mostly because I've been quite comfortable with the default, but the alternative's there to try out.. You might like it.. ... Maybe!!

This is a pretty solid retro game and yes, my only complaint is the small controls. I'll check out some of the alternate schemes ands see what I think.

Other than that I'm loving all the different levels!

Buttons on the iPad are too small, and I have no idea whatsoever what I'm suppose to be doing.
