Fix the controls,put a joystick

Looks fun, terrible controls.

I got through the first two levels before giving up. The game looks fun. It really does. But the controls are garbage. They barely respond, there’s almost a full second of delay when you touch them, if you drag to far with the movement slider it stops moving.I really think I would like this game, but the controls make it unplayable.

One major problem holding this port back

Overall this is a nice port of probably the best metal slug game in the series. But one MAJOR problem makes this game unplayable. The controls are horrible. Something players will never get use to. The control stick is stationary. Players will quickly learn and get frustrated when your character is run and gunning mobs down and all of a sudden they stop, get killed, to look down and see their finger just barely moved off the joystick. It makes boss fights frustrating. Early bosses that you can breeze through become wasted continues. I don't know why this is still the case with the controls. I remember playing this on an android port and the game was perfect. The control stick was floating. I never had issues with run and gun and stop and die like the iOS port. It can be done. I've played it on android. If for some reason they decide to update the game. Include this control function. That's the only thing holding this game from being a great port of the original.
