Separate the save and the quit gestures!!!

Post by Bugpowder » Wed Nov 04, 2009 9:55 am

Please use a totally different gesture for Save & Quit vs. Quit & Exit!

Using the same gesture root for these two commands is a really bad idea. Having Quit & Exit be the default choice for the gesture root is INSANE.

As you might have guessed, I just had YASD by screwing up the Save and Quit gesture. I'm not playing anymore until I'm sure I won't lose hours of my life by not waiting long enough when holding the save gesture.

Besides that, the port is REALLY AWESOME. You have reinvigorated my interest in the game! Best iPhone game ever! Thank you.

Instead of using a gesture for Save & Quit, you can just push the "home" button - it should save and quit just a nicely (the code grabs the "quit" event and calls the low level save routine)
