Added an extended tutorial that will help new players to easily jump-in into the game and help advanced players to nail their skills in mobile version.

Transition to Mobile
I’ve played SpeedRunners on console, PC, and now mobile. I definitely have to say it’s one of my favorite games to play due to the unique movement mechanics for a game that’s only in 2 dimensions.
I’m a big fan of playing on PC as the controls are totally customizable and easy to use. On mobile I often notice that when I go to grapple, instead I boost. This is because the grapple button is way to far left and too small. This makes the game very hard to play well no matter the skill level. If y’all added a functionality to the game menu where you could change the sizing and positioning of the buttons and slider to fit each player individually. I understand not everyone’s thumb sizes are the same and the button placement just happens to not be optimal for me.
One other thing I would like to add is that while you make buy characters, skins, and other cosmetics on this app, it is NOT a play to play or even play to win game. This is a very good thing for a mobile game to not have as it allows for newer players and those who wish to not drop a lot of money on the game to compete with the best of them. I was fine paying for the PC version. And I’m fine not paying for the mobile version but not receiving all the other goodies I’m used to.
Please add optional adjustments!
this game needs work
before we start talking about improving this game, ill say I've played speedrunners on PC and Xbox.
1: iPhone X series compatibility. i don't know if this is a design decision, but i think embracing the full screen display of the X series would improve the gameplay and gamefeel for the current gen phones.
2: the controls. i really don't like the controls for this version of the game, i think that they should start from square 1 and redesign the controls to allow for a more free-flowing feel of movement. The slider and buttons are not the way to go for a game like this (but they still should be options). i suggest an 8-direction on screen Dpad to allow for the best possible way to control movement (jumping, sliding, and sprinting) with options to move those back to separate buttons. i think the whole control system should be able to be placed anywhere on screen and should be able to be resized. (see the mobile ports of classic Sega games for what I'm talking about) i think that this alone would take this rating to the next level.
3: the tutorial. it should be clearer, with bigger text and a "slo-mo" effect when you pass by the respective areas.
overall, the biggest gripe i have with this game is the controlls, but i like the game
I would like to start off and say that this game is cool and I really do like the gameplay. However this game says it’s online and every Time you match make it will wait around 1 minute (just guessing) And then will put bots in your game to play instead of real people. This fact would not be as bad if it was a rare occurrence but I would say that you get real people to play with 1 in 75 tries (this is a low estimate no lie). And when you do finally get a person to play with it’s usually only 1 when it should be 3 it can take half and hour to a hour sometimes to get real people. Take this into consideration before getting the game, because like I said this is a good game it’s just that the online features don’t work over 90% of the time and that isn’t sarcasm. In conclusion the online features do not work well at all, but the gameplay when you do get that rare chance to play with someone is very competitive and engaging. I’m sure the developers are aware of it it’s just been months without improvement.
