Yeah, I second this. Maybe have a tiny "Enable/Disable Hints" button next to the sound one in the main menu?

Also, I don't know if anyone else would agree with me on this, but wouldn't it be better if the soundtrack didn't start over after every death, but instead looped?

I second both of these suggestions, but the game is still quite amazing.

I had the same problem yesterday night and it works like a charm with that fix.

Does anyone know what the bag with the number above "items" refers to?

any news about a bugfix?
Unfortunately, the localization with the German text files only got corrupted. An mini-update is being issued along with a few other items that have been mentioned in this thread. If you go with English as the system settings, its fine. Sorry about the inconvenience and we'll get it fixed right away!

2. Allow us to move the controls.
3. Allow us to resize the controls.
I third this... and as Metalcasket says, a small button on the main menu would be good

Yes. With Apple already exhibit an unhealthy range of controlist tendencies, I sometimes wish they'd go full SkyNet and just demand that every game submitted features Retina, multitasking (if that ever is an issue anymore), and user-moveable on-screen controls. And while they're at it, asynchronous online gameplay for all turn-based games, and real-time competitive multiplayer for the rest

Speaking of controls, just as in the case of Terra Noctis, there is some sort of weird inconsistency and sluggishness to the controls that I can't quite seem to pin down. It is never there when I try to reproduce the phenomenon, but as soon as I start enjoying the game, it flitters at the periphery of my consciousness, constantly making Spellsword just a tad less enjoyable.

Anyone else with a similar phantom pains?
