I'm not certain if it has been mentioned in this thread (or another) but I saw that CV: SotN is on the google play store for $3. Not a bad price.

Looks like iOS has it as well. Same price. Not bad honestly but That's a game I'd probably want to use a controller with. Get one of those clips to attached to an Xbox One controller or something.

I've never liked a single Android port of a game that previously required a controller. The only games that work on a touchscreen are touch games with no d-pad. Everything else has felt awful to play. Sonic CD was my first Android game like this, and I regretted spending the few dollars almost immediately.

I found the Cave mobile ports played well, but I'd say shmups in general are a fairly unique case that translates well.

Agree. I really like touch controls for shmups. Platformers on the other hand…

I think even then, I'd still much rather have a joystick or game pad. Thumbs just block too much of the screen for shooters to translate well to a phone. Maybe a tablet would be better, but only if there was dedicated space for the controls that didn't block bullets/ships coming from behind.

Never played the port of Sonic Cd. However, I have beaten VVVVVV and Another World on a phone so it is possible to have playable touchscreen controls for platformers. Granted, I'd probably connect a ps4 controller if I played SotN. More of a complex title.

Shmups feel right on a touch screen. You kinda dont even look at your ship after a while. You dodge naturally almost.

Bless you for playing VVVVV on a touch screen. I know my hand/eye coordination skills (or lack thereof) would prevent me form playing that game without some sort of physical controls.
