  • Keyboard Arrows

i would have liked it better if it showed arrow keys instead of the letters. it's a bit hard to read, the arrow keys would make it more straight forward

Thank you for comment! If i understand correctly, you mean: show arrow keys accordingly to WASD keys, but still use WASD (just change the graphic representation).

I am currently working on update to implement different control schemes to use in-game. But this is new view point I need to think about. It might actually improve gameplay greatly. I will test this out to see if this fits better.

totally came to the comments to post this.

i tried to make myself accustomed to WASD, but i couldn't. arrows are way better.

Thank you for comment! Rolled out the update for controls selection to solve this issue.

brilliant game really fun I curse so much here is my playthrough 

Thank you for playing! Love the playthrough :D

That 'W' letter though. Do you think I need to emphasize controls layout in-game? I am actually working on input device selection, as update to multiple game modes. Would love to hear any suggestions.

you stated clearly that it was a key its difficult to write w with pixels too Ive seen few games drop in a back grounds too screaming crowds or mountains its a great idea though Ive never thought about the adws keys like that and I thought I knew them well :)

Rolled update to fix the controls problem!
