not a leftie, but It's great that he incorporated that. Nice I hope he gets some sales out of it.

Same here. It's nice to know devs try to cater to multiple audiences at the same time.

I'm a leftie, and as such the game has gone from great to REALLY great! I think Eric the dev has nailed the controls perfectly on this in general...

couldn't you just have turned the ipod upside down for lefties to use?

Yes, but lefties have to do that kind of thing too often in this predominantly right-handed world, so it's really nice to have something tailor made for us for a change

Honestly, im actually more comfortable with right handed controls, as ive spent years playing with them on the ds, psp, or any other console with hard buttons.

i'm assuming you're left-handed

but yeah, this is why iTouch is so great... the ability to move around the control scheme
