this game could be very good, but the controls are horrible :/ maybe you can fix this with an update

Yes, I fell in love with the animation -- it definitely makes the game! -- but I agree, the controls are awful. There seems to be very little control over where Kiwi Brown actually runs, and I did play this (or try to play this) for quite a while over the past couple days. I'm giving up, though, because as compellingly cute as he is, the controls are equally frustrating.

i think the controls would be great if they turned down the sensitivity a good bit and exlained how the swipe to move works. its pretty cool, swipe slow and move a little, swipe fast and move a lot, quickly. its just way too sensitive at the moment and ends up making the character uncontrollable.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback.
Is it only about the sensitivity, or do you think there is something else wrong with the controls?

The sensitivity is definitely off, but the controls aren't intuitive to use, either. I think people are used to d-pads, so if this really is just swipe, then how about a tutorial or practice level with tips, rather than just the current quickly-flashed picture of two thumbs and some words?

I see what you mean, will try to find a good solution for this.

Do you have any other wishes for the update?
