I'm scared to delete the Philippines version and download the US version in case I lose my progress. I'm connected to both LINE and Facebook in the PH game, which is supposed to save your game in the cloud, but I also had the Testflight version of this and it did not transfer my save over.

Any PH players brave enough to test this out and report back?

So I suppose there's no iCloud/Game Center cloud support?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but do you have a second device you can test it on?

There is no Gamecenter cloud support, just Line's cloud, Facebook or Google.

(I don't know if it has controller support, I don't own one. It's designed for swipes and taps but I guess it'd be possible, at least?)

I'm fairly impressed with what I've seen so far though I suppose the one thing that worries me is... sure, it's not a "proper" fighter, but you can see in about five minutes that it's way, way, way above Injustice 2 (much as I kind of like playing that as well). The AI in the asynch multiplayer feels frankly unbeatable. I mean, I'm pretty sure it's not, GIT GUD, etc., etc., but jeez, after Injustice 2... this thing will bounce you off the walls for days. Blocking is very much not optional. Single player is fine so far, but multi? It's a little dispiriting to go straight to feeling like there's no way I'll ever win a single match.

Hope it does have controller support! Never been into Swype and tap, just glorified fruit ninja. Fighting games benefit from a controller, and if we had more games that could benefit, there would be more controllers out there! I'm just moaning, more people should buy them, nimbus in particular. Then buy a mount so you can attach your iPhone from ali express for like $1 it's the ultimate handheld!!
