    New update is coming soon.

    Thanks friends keep looking forward this game. New update is submitted at yesterday with new control scheme and until now the status is "waiting for review". i'm not sure when can be available on appstore. Auto shooting and double virtual joysticks make control's experience to be more comfortable. Here is test playing video for preview.

    I have to say, at first version of this game, bad control feeling makes many friends disappointed. I'm very sorry for it. People really hard to used to it. Maybe we have developed for too long time, 18 months by two people. We always thought hardcore game should be liked that. Cut instruction, no easy congratulations, fast moving and just likes "Contra" in my childhood. iPhone platform is so popular, there should be some hardcore, serious game for game fans. So game difficulty got higher and higher then forgot the first playing for people.

    At very beginning of game developing in 2011, we tried some simple, popular control schemes actually. However, original design passion makes us want the game to be different, be even better.I know of high risk but…you know….the passion of first time to make game. We placed buttons in the bottom for giving touch area as much as possible. That made down button looks strange in the middle of left and right. Left finger still can slide between left and right arrow buttons and the down button wouldn't take any touch event. Down only works when figure single click on it. I thought it was perfect. Sadly, distance between arrows I think is too long now.

    Last week, we have test seven different schemes. Cross direction with two action button, one joystick with one button, no down button arrow pad with auto-aiming and etc. Finally, double virtual joysticks scheme I think is easiest to hands on. We combine jump and shoot pad into one joystick. It works much better than previous. Old control scheme is also maintained, somewhere I think old control is necessary. You can pick two control scheme at anytime. But I still worried about jump(needs touch down and up quickly to trigger). So I make this test video by myself to hearing your point.

    Thanks to Exact-Psience, area, Mfox76, Janni, Darth Ronfar, Mrwubbs, psj3809, dr_watson and many other friends' advices. Your replies makes FlyingDaggers much better. And we will keep improving, fixing, update this game.

    Looks fantastic, but I can see that a down arrow placed in between the Left and Right arrows might be awkward for fast action, since you can't just slide from one to the other.

    This does look interesting. You might want to move it to the "Upcoming" section, though, until it's actually released tomorrow.

    don't worry about that. you can side your finger from left arrow icon to right arrow straightly. Control feeling is most important.

    No problem. Game looks interesting.

    You can go ahead and create another thread for the game in the iPhone Games section once the game is released.

    Woh. The action on the video just tells me to get it. Looks must-f***ing-get. I'll bite, but im a little cautious about that down arrow in between L and R.

  10. Game looks good, but not universal right? Guess that leaves us ipad users out.

    HD version is in developing. Because ipad size is quite bigger than iphone, so the control style I decide to change a little bit for playing more comfortable. Take it easy, FlyingDaggers is coming soon.

    I had a look at the youtube videos, and it makes me wonder if the "down" button is even needed at all. Maybe you guys should consider removing the down button.

    Yes, the game is available now but with bad control's experience. New update is just submitted one hour ago and waiting for review by apple. New control scheme is coming with double virtual joysticks and auto-shooting pad and touch. I will make a playing video for preview later. Hope this new scheme won't make friends disappointed.
