Wolf Classic / Doom Classic controls (Poll)

Does anyone actually play a lot with the tilt-to-turn option? I am considering removing it from Doom Classic. I don't want to present a lot of cluttered options to new users, but I don't want to annoy Wolf Classic players that have gotten used to a play style.

I don't mind having some semi-obscure options, but if just isn't a good way to control it for anyone, it would be best to prevent anyone else from wasting their time with it.

Oh goodness, John Carmack!

I didn't like the tilt-to-turn, so I say keep it out.

i love the way the wolf classic controls are, there perfect for wolf classic, and i would think for doom as well, if you cant put both i would say put the wolf classic ones, because im not sure how the tilt one would work out

I am unsure if I will believe that this is actually John Carmack...
But i'll answer your question-I never use that control scheme, only the default.

EDIT: Wow, it's real! I didn't see that one coming haha. I apologize

The default controls are the best I've used for a FPS on the iPhone.

I tried it but didn't like it. Kind of frustrating.
