All I can say is support this game, tell all your friends about it, and then maybe I'll take everything I have now and make Mech Pilot 2 with full control over the mech with a more open world to explore. It's not going to work with this game the way the missions are designed.

I still have 15 more levels planned for Mech Pilot, more enemy types and other stuff coming in the future to keep the game interesting.

That is swipe to aim, not dual sticks.

No offense taken. A simple suggestion like 'add dual sticks' in this case would take several months of redesign though so it's just not feasible.

i just played a bit more the controls are not bad at all, but i would deff add a option to enable invert, only thing it needs i didnt realize the throttle was toggled so you can just turn it on and control movements just need to be able to backup maybe by double tapping throttle it turns red and your reversing, and i would add either an arrow or map with an arrow to know which direction your torso is facing i could see people getting confused, is there any sort of map/radar to show enemy positions?

i know you said swipe to dodge, but if you already have throttle enabled you should just be able to turn your torso and move side to side...i dunno if that's easier or not.

A bit disappointed it's taking so long for Apple to approve update #2. I guess things are backed up because everyone is updating apps for iPhone 5.

For update #3 I've added a separate walk backward button. You can instantly move forward or back, or toggle the active direction button to stop walking like before.

So after Update 3 it won't be on rails anymore? I was very disappointed that it was on rails.

Ended up only being able to play on my friends phone since I haven't upgraded to 6 yet.

It is still on rails, but with a little more freedom. Dodging lets you move left and right of the path a little, and the back button means you can go back along the route.
