Touch Screen Buttons
So we have this problem with Gaming on our phones, touch screens i have found make horrible substitutes for physical buttons,
not to mention i find them uncomfortable.
I was using a GB emulator, and found that the buttons on the touchscreen having no instant tactile feedback meant that i could not perform the game very well, in fact any moves that would be done by pushing down both buttons or one then the other very quickly could not be done.
So a platformer, where you have to jump then spin or slide and jump was difficult to impossible, it would not respond to the second button push.
Plus, in a platformer, or action or fighting sparring game, you need to look at the action, not look at your fingers.
What solutions do people use to get around this?
The Xperia play is the only phone with a proper physical gamepad built in, as for qwerty keyboards, i think they would be rather unintuitive and not very ergonomic in fact most of them i tried to use actually were far more infuriating to type on then a virtual keyboard for me.
Any way any answers will be appreciated.
