Stupid mouse is stupid

Wait. You mean I have to play with a mouse? Pass. Thatís, like, lame. But there was that one time when you went nuts and made your iPad game free and I accidentally downloaded it, so I suppose I kind of owe you one. I guess Iíll give this a try.

Drop is by far my favorite when Iím playing with touch controls, but Zen works much better here. Even though thereís a clock ticking away, itís a slower paced affair. And this works quite a bit better when youíre stuck with a stupid mouse.

Drop could be a little bit better, I think, with a couple of quick fixes. I mean, I keep throwing around my MacBook, but for the life of me, I canít get it to recognize the rotations. I think itís a bug or something. ;-) And itíd be nice if there were keyboard keys that you could assign to rotation. That way, youíd still be able to aim for your target while the board is spinning. I think that would help when juggling combos.

Since this is toucharcade.com, Iím assuming that everybody here has either an iPhone or an iPod or an iPad. If you donít have the touch version of this game, do yourself a favor and get that instead. Itís a much better experience. If youíve already got that and you love it even half as much as I do, and if youíve got a couple of extra bucks, you should buy this one, too. You probably wonít play it much, but maybe itíll help to get us a bit closer to Smiles 2. Iíve got my fingers crossed.

I love Smiles, and look forward to playing on my iMac.
And yes, you have to use a mouse, what do you expect? telekinesis?
