    I recall when I first played the game (the day they dropped price to $5.99), the control when using touch steering (not the steering wheel) and manual acceleration was a sort of "swipe thumb up and hold to accelerate, swipe down slowly to slow down, swipe down all the way to brake", and then these tiny lines would trail after your thumb and you could move the thumb you were accelerating with to steer (the line trails would follow your movements).


    That doesn't seem to be there now. :confused:

    Instead touch steering when using manual acceleration is as strange to use as when one first heard of the option without playing the game. The pedals are on screen, but you can no longer swipe up to accelerate, hold, and move your thumb to steer. Now it's just the gas and brake pedal onscreen and the tap "zones".

    Also, touch steering is now called "screen tap" under the menu. I'm pretty sure it wasn't called that before, but rather it was called "touch" something or other.

    Did anyone else notice this?

    Or am I just buggin' the fudge out? :confused:

    Under "version" it states "1.1.0" btw.

    Did Gameloft sneak an update by us without really announcing it? I don't recall downloading an update. But I do recall the steering when using touch controls being exactly as I described earlier. Now it's changed.

    Ah well...I still use motion sensing anyway. I just found it odd that it changed a bit without a heads up. If it did change....

    That would be one of the first times I've heard a Gameloft game getting an update (hint hint *BiA* ahem!)

    Nah, they updated Asphalt 4 once. Of course that last update to Asphalt raped the motion sensing (and yes, I will always bring that up no matter how many times I've brought it up before), but, y'know....

    Still, anyone notice the change in touch controls?

    but did you notice the change in touch steering controls?

    It's not the way it was originally (as I had described it). It's different now.

    Even though very rare Gameloft updates have happend

    Asphalt 4-had an update that apparently screwed up the accel. steering

    Guitar rock tour-stability fixes and itouch compatable

    RealSoccer '09-roster update

    They aren't the kind of updates we're used to or would like. However imo gameloft makes fairly solid games. I've never had any of the GL titles give mr blank screen like I've read in some reviews, and they are usually bug free (not glitch free) compared to the six good titles that have came out this past couple weeks.

    Cube update: rifle bug-update submitted
    Payback: story mode glitch-pulled, fix in progress
    Rebel onslaught: 6th level crash after first update- pulled resubmitted updated/fixed.
    Slot z: A.I. Bugs & varius- update in progress
    Blue Attack: network bug- update in progress
    Armageddon squadron mp update: sound bug in mp mode-update in progress

    While these apps realeased with some minor hiccups it's great to have the feedback and response from the dev's. Even though they might not have a gameloft budget they've made great titles & let the community shape what's best.
    I really wish Gameloft could practice they ethics of indie dev's....get back in the trenches but they're way to corperate, meaning they think their $hit don't stink.
