Or at least re-release the original since its not currently available.
Thank you for thinking so highly of the first SummitX. Unfortunately for most people the trick control system on that game was confusing and usually ended in spastic virtual button mashing. And you may not have noticed it, but in that game, the animations were also canned. So instead of being triggered from button combinations, we changed it to swipes. At first the trick sequences are a bit simple admittly, but they grow in complexity as you unlock them.
Plus, SummitX 2 is not just a sequel of SummitX, but also APO Snow, another game we made. We tried a diamond "pattern matching" control scheme. That was way too casual. So we decided to try out the QTE system that we developed for the Tech Deck, mobile games.
If you have specific suggestion for how to improve the current trick control scheme, we'd be very interested in hearing them.
