Control scheme grinds my gearsDrMushi05/23/2010 - 13:56

Hey, I just wanted to stop by and say, the game is really fun, entertaining, and challenging, and the music is out of this world.

But the drag and drop control scheme is wholly useless in this game. Oftentimes I found I couldn't build the shape I wanted to, because the mouse wouldn't recognize where I was placing the gooball as what I wanted it to, or I'd spend seconds trying to pluck out the one gooball I needed against the fifteen other ones. The Whistle doesn't really work, either.

I dunno, the controls on this game are the only thing keeping it from being intensely satisfying. As it stands now, it makes me want to kick a baby.
