Looking at some videos it should have an easy mode. Watched a fair bit on YouTube. Looks really good

^Had just got in from seeing Star Wars (midnight showing !) so was great to see this is out. Hefty filesize but then again it looks an AAA game.

I'll free up some space and get this later for sure

So, how playable is this without a controller? Im not too harsh about fiddly input-methods on touchscreens, so i would definitely buy if things dont get too frustrating / overly hard.

Hey there. Hope it's fine to post here.

Obviously we're a little biased, but we've tried really hard to make the game (which used up all the buttons on a PS4 controller!) work on mobile. Without a controller, it's a blend of swiping (to move, jump up and crouch/roll) and buttons (to use, chant, talk etc). We think it's the right solution as it means you can swiftly run and jump and roll out of danger with the invisible joypad, but also offer precise controls when needed. All the buttons can be moved and resized, too, for comfort. We also added a dedicated 'hop' button that jumps Abe forward a little, really useful for mines and such.

That said, New 'n' Tasty's a hard game. There is an easy mode, though, and we offer full (and instant) quicksave and quickload buttons.

Edit: just to add, because the game came out a little while back on PS4 (and other consoles after) there are loads of YouTube videos on the game - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHwE8yRABs4 - for example.

Edit 2: we offer lots of visual toggles too, such as the ability to switch off bloom, or lower the resolution.

Thanks for bringing this to iOS. Been watching those videos on youtube and it looks an amazing remake of the original classic.

So can i check, the invisible joypad, its just a case of pressing left/right or swiping ?

To go up a ladder you just swipe up then near a ladder ? Or do you 'press' up ?

Cheers
