Love it but....
...every fourth or fifth play, the controls get stuck on forward or backward. Even when I die and the next life starts, I’m stuck going forward or backward. The only way to unstick the controls is to restart the game entirely.
broken under IOS 13
great game, very hard. Game is not formatted for the newer iphones with the notch so it does not make full use of the screen. The game does not work properly under ios13. the touch screen buttons on the right side are now huge and cover a third of the screen. I have discovered however that this can be fixed in the setting section by resizing them.
Also, since the screen does not make full use of the screen, touching the far left side of the screen will now warp you to the far right of the screen which usually results in immediate death. This bug is almost a game breaker when using the touch controls. I find it to be highly annoying and frustrating, especially when I’ve almost beat a level and accidently slide my finger to far to the left off the viewable portion of the screen the game, which happens all the time!
Please please fix this. i thought it was bad when the sides of the screen were just dead zones but now it is instant death.
Stuck on fourth lvl
Well first of all this game is so wonderfully difficult probably the most difficult game I’ve ever played in my life. So I’m willing to share some brotherly slang to those out there who don’t understand what’s going on. “F***k!!!” means that I didn’t accomplish what I wanted. “What in the hell?!!!!!!!!” means I have no idea what hit me. “S**t!!!!!” means I missed a power up. “Are you freakin serious right now!!!!!!!!!” means I fought one of the bosses and died.
