Nice game. I played it on PC and enjoyed it. The touch controls on mobile are infuriating, but thankfully the game supports a gamepad (and I highly recommend playing with a gamepad). The game also supports Android TV, but unfortunately the pre-game screen is not controllable with gamepads, requiring click/tap to advance into the actual game. Afterwards, the game can be smoothly played with just the gamepad. And the game also includes Google Play achievements.

The game started out okay. It gives the player 2 options in which they can control the game. Both controls require work and it makes the game infuriating to play. Good concept, but what's the point if one can't enjoy it as the game doesn't work properly.

Unable to play the game, just keep offering for me to buy it again or look at other titles.. Probably for the best of the controls are as bad as others are saying..
