Final blog post about Gunbrick before the big release tomorrow (we promise). We almost forgot that we haven’t even explained the controls to most of you and just how much of a good fit they are for a casually played but engaging mobile game.
It’s super simple really. Just swipe left or right to roll the gunbrick to either side. If you hold a swipe, it will continue to roll the way you started. Tap to shoot and hold your finger down to continuously fire. If you are facing sideways the recoil from your bullet will push you sideways. You’ll need this skill early on to traverse the landscape or dodge oncoming enemy fire . Fire against the ground to rocketjump and fly upwards. Useful to reach high ground and avoid lasers and mines.
It’s really as easy as that.
Check out the vine video for a super quick demo of the controls in action.
Until tomorrow, happy gaming. ;)
