Oh yeah? How do you dodge enemies? How is it a form of difficulty then to jump on moving platforms? You just tap and automatically jumping on a platform without the possibility to fall down when missing? That's the fun of a stick option, that you have to steer the jump, because you have to get the angle right. How ridiculous whould it be with tap to jump automatically

When you want to smash a moving object, do you just tap on it and all automatically happens now? How ridiculous would that be!

Only a stick option would be the real deal there, you would have to hold on the stick in that direction of the object until overlap and then action button, thats the real deal.

If this is in fact the full game we could be in for a treat. I did some researching and found a reviewer who mentioned that doing the story mode at a slower pace, trying to find all the unlockables will give you roughly 15+ hours of gameplay. However he mentioned at 21 hours of gameplay he was only 75 percent through the game, mentioning there are tons of unlockables and he had barely scratched the surface of free play which has areas exclusive to that mode. So this game looks like it'll be pretty in depth, if there is that much content I might shell out the 10 bucks for this game.
