This actually looks very nice. Someone put care and a lot of details and humour in.

Hmm... this looks great - but in the trailer, it looks like it uses tilt controls... am I right in thinking that? If not, what are the controls like?

Touch the sides of your screen to go left and right, tap bottom of screen/both left and right to jump.

I can't say I've come across a game recently that has made me say "I WANT TO KNOW MORE" more than this. Instant purchase. No IAPs.

You know how I will defend Sine Mora's controls to the death? Ermmm...yeah, not with this. :/ The game is superb, the animations are lovely, I was honestly surprised to see iPad retina and I love the level design, but...the game requires precision. You're gonna need to make your way around tight spots, blades, fire and wall jump a hell of a lot. The problem is...the controls. It's too much of a hassle alternating hands all the time on an iPad, and tapping both sides simultaenously still doesn't give me the precision I need. I'm legitimately scared of later levels. I thought maybe those screenshots showed a different control scheme, but it's apparent those are bombs...and I'm still on the second level and having the hardest time grasping these controls. What's it gonna be like when more buttons start showing up on screen? :/

I don't know if asking for a more traditional (left, right, jump, bomb, whatever) button scheme is a good idea considering I'm still early in and don't know what's going to be thrown at me, but God...I dunno. The game's awesome...I just wish something could be done about these controls.

Oh yeah, for anyone doubting how good the game is, read these reviews of the PC version:

Stirfire Studios...please, please, please look into adding a more traditional control scheme.
