My thoughts exactly. This is something that's always pissed me off about the gaming community in general. A lot of good games are fighting expectations they never intended to fulfill and it hurts them unjustly.

Loaded this game up today as I wanted a break from my current addictions (Liberation Maiden, DU2, Phoenix HD, TROz, Ronin) and i totally am longing for a good mech game (cant wait for that upcoming one). I must say this game has some good things going on for it, but it does have obvious flaws that need to be changed or tweaked to make it a lot more playable.

Most important of all, i think, is that the vstick needs to be changed to a swipe similar to the aim in most FPS and 3PS like Shadowgun. It's really difficult to struggle with controls while trying to fight off enemy mechs and what-nots.

I also want to add that there is some potential in this game, but i dont think it has been harnessed well enough and channeled into something good.

What controls by swipe are there? Swiping down ducks but what else is there. Every now and then I manage to jump but I can't repeat it. Some help at start would have been good.

Swipe left and right makes you jump/dodge into that direction. It's all covered in the tutorial.

Hi RPGGuy... Got any plans to remove the joystick and using the left half of the screen as dodge swipe control, and the right side the drag-to-aim? I believe that will improve the game greatly.

Any plan to add iCade support without change actual controls?

Game Center: masvil - feel free to add me telling you are from TA.
Do you need info about HDMI out and iCade to use your iDevice as a real game station? Go there and there and thank Connector and Menneisyys.

Thanks. Too bad though, as i really wanted to like this game but the current control scheme is too flawed for what the game wants to be: A good game.
