You realize this should be in the freebies/price drops section right?

Know this will be moved but I know controls were a big bone of contention when this first came out. Have they greatly improved? Is the game worth the space?

Yeah, I was wondering this too. This game was sitting in my AppShopper wishlist so it notified me of the price change. I posted it on here to see if it was worth my buck.

Nope... I'd say more actiony... To the point of being sorta Megaman bossfights with Contra action, with League of Evil-sized maps.

The controls have improved, but it still has flaws. I believe i was the very first one in TA to toftt for this title, and i can safely say it is more playable now than before. To be honest, i was a little annoyed that the dev was "holding on" to his idea of innovative controls, that he tries soooo hard not to use the usual jump button and vstick to aim, that he put the jump button in the middle of the aim stick. It works, but it is flawed.

As for Ninjack's question about being worth the dollar, to me it was, but i didnt get to the point of finishing the game, mostly because the controls update came out when Apocalypse Max was released, so it just got forgotten.

Unfortunate, it looks really nice but to be honest I think it would be a bit frustrating. Thanks for explaining that.
