App description: HEAVY sword

"HEAVY sword is a good-looking game with plenty of quirky sprites and detailed backgrounds. However its the exploratory nature of the levels and the ability to acquire an unnaturally gigantic sword that steal the show." -148Apps

"Aside from the classic gameplay and tight controls, the game does look gorgeous in its pixel vision, with particle and lighting effects adding a modern edge to the throwback graphics"

Bah. This game has a horrible control issue. You can't just drag your thumb between left and right, you actually have to take your thumb off and press the opposing button.

This doesn't sound so awful when you read it, but you'll realise you do this all the time in other platformers and its incredibly frustrating when it doesn't work here
