    Agreed on the controls. The game is phenomenal.

    I came to ask how it looks on Plus devices. Looks like I may have to grab this.

    Have it for PS4 but haven't played it much due to a gigantic backlog. What I played was a lot of fun though. Having it on the go will allow me to play through it.

    EDIT: Bought!

    Oh my god they finally did it! This is one of those games I listed some year ago in games I wanted to be ported to iOS!

    Ive been playing for an hour and i must say : AWESOME job on the controls, wow, never felt home as much with touchscreen controls on an action game since Bastion.

    And honestly, those must be the best controls ive ever seen in an action game on iOS (from a port)

    You really went beyond simply adding buttons, the buttons are there but the way you simply touch the left side of the screen in different ways to interact with them is brillant.

    I think i might enjoy this game on iOS even more than PC considering the convenience of havin it on the go.

    Works like a charm on iPhone 5s, thank you very much for this awesome game !
     
  6. Currently uploading some non-buggy iPhone 6S footage. Tomorrow I want to see how comfortable it is to play on my Air 2, bc I really want to see that art on a bigger screen.

    Also, so happy with the way iCloud saves are utilized here. Completely 100% in our control what we want to push to and pull from the cloud. Wish every game would do this!!!!!

    Holy crap, so happy this finally came to a device that I regularly game on. I was waiting for a Vita or Wii U version but this will definitely do.

    Oh sweet my post got deleted.


    Anyways this game is great. If this game isn't the damnedest game of the week ever, there is no justice on this Earth.

    Glad everyone seems to be enjoying it so far!

    Yeah, it was REALLY important to me to give you full control over the cloud saves. Nothing irks me more than bad implementation.

    Dust:AET currently does not ship with MFi support but it's something I'm planning to add in the future. Since the game was originally a gamepad game the code is all there, just a matter of making it work with some of the new UI.

    Loved this on PC. If you haven't tried it, this is a great price for a great game with fun, memorable characters!

    Wow. I didn't realize Dust was coming out on iOS. That's fairly awesome, especially for all the people who may not had a chance to play it yet.

    I actually bought this on Steam at the beginning of Summer just on a wild hair that it looked awesome. Of course the reviews are through the roof and it shines as a superior action/adventure for anyone that has hands. I admit I haven't played it for almost a month now since school has kicked back in. But for sure this is an instant purchase for anyone with the space and device to support it.

    So it's definitely not native 1080p. I'm not too surprised, as the PS4 version isn't either, but some of the comments here lead me to believe it may have been. It is fun to play though!

    D'oh! Ol' MC always on top of it haha. Man this game is awesome. Those controls! Makes me wonder how some devs can just absolutely botch the ever-lovin' crap out of virtual controls and then some devs can nail them to the point that you forget it's even a factor. Unreal.

    This is a nice surprise. I have the Xbox 360, PC, and PS4 versions. 100%-ed the PS4 version. One thing I've got to say is, you're in for a real treat. One of the best metroidvanias I've played in recent memory, and I'm a real metroidvania fan.

    Just one thing about this iOS version: why in The Wide World of Sports does the app icon have Fidget on it instead of Dust himself? I thought the game was called Dust: An Elysian Tail, not Fidget: An Elysian Tail!

    True, Fidget's Spit Attack has saved me so many times. That is some powerful spit.
