Well, the tilt controls in this game can work a heck of a lot better than how they currently work for you.

Playing with a joystick would take away from the simplicity of the control scheme, where the entire left side is mapped to jumping and the entire right side to combat. I guess it would make some folks more comfortable, but they would kind of playing a different game.
I agree with you 100% here except that I think the controls are reversed (left for jumping, right for combat).

I must say that this game wouldn't nearly be as fun though if it were not for these controls. Any other control method would just make the game feel bland and not designed for iOS. (Like Infinity Blade with buttons only instead of swiping)

Glad to hear that...

BTW: an update just hit in the US. Apparently they've improved trampoline jumping (didn't realize there was a problem) and the zipline sections, as well as enhancing the tutorials and level tweaks. How they got that through with the App Store closed I have no idea .

I'm always grateful towards a dev who brings a polished and refreshingly different experience, especially when he's new to iOS, which you seem to be.

Hope your revenues are up to your expectations. You certainly deserve it.

Welcome to TA! You should be very proud of Crazy Hedgy. The game is easily one of the best of the year, and without a doubt the biggest iOS surprise I can think of. Glad to head that you plan to push the game even further.
