Best touch screen controls premium action or platform games.

I generally dislike virtual joysticks and on screen buttons, with a few notable exceptions ("Implosion"). Anyone have any suggestions for some of the best control premium games with touch screen controls, as in not a controller accessory.

We tried something on Drag'n'Boom with a double slingshot.
I don't know if it can help you but If you have any question about it, don't hesitate to ask us.


Made "King Tongue" and "Drag'n'Boom" with nice guys

Great game, thank you. Love the combo system. Controls remind me of skullduggery but I like the idea of comboing so it's not all pausing and slingshots.

Have you Tried EPOCH.1 and EPOCH.2? Really well implemented swipe control scheme with some really nice gameplay mechanics.

Just bought and downloaded Epoch.2, thanks for the recommendation. I like your signature tag I still have MH:Unite, HS, VVVVVV, Wayward Souls, Goblin Sword & Trap N Gemstones on my phone...

Try my platformer game, Edgar Emoji.


Maybe not the best looking game out there, but I am really proud of the controls.
