Android, iPad and iPhone users, pay attention! I want to improve Angeldust's touchscreen user experience and discoverability.

I think the main problem is that players don't read and thus don't know that you can tap to perform an action, and tap-and-hold for a repeated action.

I want to solve this by adding dedicated action buttons to the user interface and dropping the 'tap anywhere' input. The action buttons will be halfway below the 'sprint' and 'jump' buttons and positioned slightly inward.

Here are two mockups for a regular tablet and a small phone:

You will still use the left half of the screen to walk, and the right half side to look around, even while perform actions.

Is this a good idea? Is the action icon clear? Do you have better ideas?

What the "world map" secret for Android? (what I'm really looking for is quest status) It's not listed here: https://angeldu.st/en/controls

[opinion on]
It's great that this game runs on every platform, but if you're playing this w/out a keyboard or a controller, you're TOTALLY missing out.

What's the question? You can open the world map from the telecharger like on all other platforms :D

I'll have to double check, but I'm pretty sure when I used the telecharger to bring up the map, it didn't bring up the quest progress (which was what I was really after)

@Hummm: It does. If you don't see a quest notice, you've finished the quest.

@all: my original question / request for comments still stands even though Hummm expertly hijacked this topic :P

If you mean that the arrow looking things on the left and right side are action buttons... I'm sure it would work.

Apologies for hijacking... speaking as a mostly non-tablet/phone player, those look like welcome changes.
