Single handedly

写真 2013-10-30 20 28 47 I have been poking through Gyakuten Saiban over the past few nights and making a little bit of progress here and there. Not much, but progress. It is getting goooood.

What I keep thinking about though, is just how great it is to play the game in the vertical mode. Just one hand. Tapping to progress the text, selecting the menu options, doing all the gameplay with my one thumb. Just one thumb. And there is great writing, a fun story, thinking. All of those things that I enjoy and no stress added because of the touch controls or having to hold the iPhone in that awkward horizontal mode.

It makes me a bit bummed that 4 and 5 are not available on iOS. Perhaps there is a “yet” hidden in that sentence. I do hope so.
