So far I love it, the button controls are more of my play style, but the tilt controls weren't that bad. I loved LocoRoco and Rolando and this brings back all the good feels from those games.

If the dev is here, can we please get more button control options? I'd much prefer the tilt buttons on opposite sides. Also, a sensitivity setting would be nice. I appreciate having an alternate control scheme, but the buttons don't feel good compared to tilt right now.
Hi there! Oleksandr from Catfishbox here. Thanks for interest to The BIG Journey! We will consider mirrored controls scheme and implement this in game updates.

I like this game, but it isn't as good as Rolando. The big thing that it's missing is the ability to turn the world completely upside down so you're able to go back to a place that you've missed. There are too many times when I miss the jump, and I'm pushing the button to turn the world a bit more to the left or to the right, but it's not able to.

I guess it would help if the view was a little bit further out so you can anticipate the gaps or what's ahead of you. This also happens when there's an enemy in front of you, and you really don't have enough time to avoid or jump over.

All in all, a really good game. Great for kids and adults, and I would recommend purchasing it.

UPDATE

I just finished the first chapter and I'm changing my review slightly. I am changing my rating from a 4 star to a 3 star. The controls are not great, but they are saying it will be fixed so I will be patient. What I can't stand is how zoomed in you are to the character. There are so many times where you don't even get a chance to see what's ahead that you are either missing a hidden path, or you hit an enemy. It's frustrating to say the least. The music and visuals are still fantastic, and the storyline is made for kids which is cool with me. I just wish the camera was a bit further back!!!!! Would love to know if this would be possible for the devs to do...

From the trailer I already knew this was an insta buy.
Having played a bit of Rolando back in the day and having played Loco Roco to death on my PSP, this looks like the next best thing!
Gameplay on YouTube convinced me only further.
Then I check the price.
Are you serious!? Only two bucks!? *SMASHES BUY BUTTON*

Hi, Oleksandr, just to be clear what I am asking for is to have the tilt buttons separated,with one tilt button on the left and one on the right. Maybe you could even make it so pressing both buttons jumps (exactly as Loco Roco did it iirc) so you only need two buttons.
