No need to tilt and controls are very responsive.
Haha how ironic... My name is Noah.

That was a quick delete. Got through the first level, the controls are workable but close to the worst I've ever encountered. Used a key, went from 1/5 keys to -1/5 keys, hilarious. Bought another key, still says -1/5.

Honestly I have come to expect this from bulky pix. I haven't liked any of their apps in ages.

Hi! I'm the developer.
You can play the whole game without paying.
If you decide to spend some money in the game, it will help you to upgrade you character a bit faster. It will also remove ads.
It's not a zynga game. We are a small indie team so we don't need to empty your pockets
Each time you'll spend money, it will support us.

Part of the challenge is to master the controls. Once you go through it, it's very fun to fly around!
So yeah, give it an other try!

Thanks for reporting this bug. I'll investigate to fix it.

I wasnt too happy with the controls either. I would be happier with a left+right buttons, and a jump/jetpack button, which this game doesnt have. With tons of games on the appstore right now, i cant afford to learn new controls like this one, which doesnt even sound to innovative to me. The game has potential, but the controls arent for me.

Agree with everybody. This game has a difficult control. Moving left to right is difficult while we have to hold for the jet and so on. There should be an easier control to play it.

damn... I was really looking forward to this one... but the controls are horrid.

I understand wanting to have an interesting game... but making the controls something the player has to fight with isn't a good idea.

I want a game to be challenging because of the level design/enemies/bosses, ect... not frustrating because of the controls.

Just about every game I've seen try and do something 'new and unique' with the controls has flopped. I'm not going to be surprised at all when that happens here.

Nothing special. All the latest games are kind of a disappointment.

Saw how it plays in the later videos. Doesn't seem like my cup of tea. Meh!
