I'll go back to it at some point but the controls just didn't click for me. Wanted more of a desert golfing aiming style rather than hold longer for strength of throw kind of thing.

Same here. There's something about the controls that just didn't work for me either, I'm struggling to put my finger on it but they just felt slightly off

Yep, unfortunately my post is the third in this thread complaining about the controls. I'd prefer a pull and aim mechanic over this.

The issue I had with the controls is that you have to aim and shoot within the time the energy buildings up for your shot. Wait too long and that energy goes away and you don't shoot.

This basically. I wanted to give it a good shot but I just can't work with the controls.

Developers who use Gamemaker really need to know what the aspect ratio and the resolution are instead of saying "yeaaah my engine doesn't scale as nicely as I would like sooooo deal with it".

I hate to be negative but this game is not very good. It needed some more time in the oven.

Hi, metalcasket. Developer here. We actually experimented with a pull to aim mechanic early in development, along with a more simplistic "fling to launch"; unfortunately, our testers didn't seem to like them as much as our current system. That said, we would be more than happy to add options for different control schemes if it's something you all are interested in?
