This isn't going to play well on iPhone.

Pad in the middle? Uh-oh. That did not work well with Towel Fight 2.

I'll still give this a go as i'm sure in an update they'll change the position of the buttons.

But they must be clever guys, they did this guy in their part time at college and coded it themselves BUT then they do a strange decision like this with buttons in the middle (which just doesnt happen on iOS games). Bizarre

I was thinking the opposite. Definitely much more comfortable for iPad users.

Definitely not getting this. Those controls look really uncomfortable

Actually to be fair on the iphone/ipod i think it'll be okay, still a strange decision but i dont think it'll make it unplayable or that.

Looks like a classic retro style RPG, looking forward to it (hopefully in an update they'll let us adjust the buttons)

Ever tried Towel Fight 2's early version with the pad in the middle? It wasn't really comfortable.

Well, maybe the controls are customizable. Or will be in an update.

Is user interface that appears to take up half the screen space necessary to preserve video aspect ratio? It doesn't seem optimal but maybe I've been too spoiled by transparent virtual buttons or floating joysticks that seamlessly integrate over gameplay.

I am still looking forward to the release of Anodyna mobile and will be curious to see impressions.

Er... I was really looking forward to this, but um... it's the black part on the sides of the screen im worried about. Why not just make overlapping, semi transparent vbuttons like most games? O_o
