Downloading currently. The lack of decent hockey games on iOS bugs me. Hopefully this one is different.

Ehhh, it feels basically the same as Hockey Nations 2011. So you're getting a 3 year old game with updated teams.

Any controller support? I really can't imagine playing a hockey game without some kind of control

I am a huge ice hockey game fan but this one is clearly not finished! I am sorry I don't want to complain too much but the most important part of a sports game is the gameplay, and this one is bad. First of all, it's not responsive, secondly, when I press the dash, my player will shot instead.... So cannot use dash or not so often. I scored a goal but the game continued and the other team scored a goal from.... behind the goal, so maybe I was very unlucky and it won't happen again, but I cannot accept such bad gameplay, please update it and fix those bugs, because the game is actually fun and good, but those gameplay bugs aren't making the whole experience enjoyable. I really hope you can fix those issues.
