    The dpads in Brothers in Arms and Dropship could take a lesson from Bugdom, as I find Bugdom's to be extremely smooth and easy to use. The game completely changes from crap to amazing with this one control change, and I'm begging Pangea to do the same for Nanosaur.

    Interesting. I'll have to take a look at that.

    What does it do specifically? Does it gradually accelerate after touching, or does it fake an analogue stick (i.e. tilt thumb more left and you turn left faster)?

    I haven't noticed any acceleration - it's just that the dpad makes movement very easy. The pad itself is just a cross, and there are now buttons for jumping, lifting, kicking, bee attacks, etc

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I realized today that Pangea disabled the updated save option. If you don't beat the level because you get a phone call or just have to go, you now have to start at the level's begining as opposed to the most recent checkpoint. Oh come on, that's just retarded.

    EDIT: I emailed them and told them to fix this

    Seriously? That makes no sense whatsover! I haven't played it since it was first released and found it be so frustrating that I nver returned, even with the updates. I was considering trying again due to the save update and now the controls but if they took out the save/checkpoint bit, forget it.

    Never played Bugdom. Anything like the D-Pad for Hero Of Sparta? I really liked the free flow of it's pad.

    Pangea gave me a prompt response.

    The save feature works exactly the same as before. I just tested it again here to be sure and it works fine for me. If the game gets interrupted it asks you if you want to resume it the next time you launch it."

    Is it just me? Does anyone else have a problem? I don't want to delete the game and reinstall it yet since I don't want to lose my progress thus far.
