My review of Final Fantasy XIII is a bit later than I expected (I haven’t even finished the game yet), but I don’t like going longer than a week without updating the site. That’s when I saw Wayward Souls staring at me on my Kindle, the icon existing as an eternal reminder of how frustrating touch-screen controls are. “Okay,” I said, “I’ll give this game one more try.” Deciding to abandon my rogue and start over as a mage instead, I wasn’t able to make it more than 3 or so floors before dying due as a direct result of the poor controls deciding that I wanted to randomly shoot fireballs and stop running when being chased. Worse, many of the control problems are still glaringly present even when using a Bluetooth keyboard to move around, so I’ve officially thrown in the towel. I expect more out of a 6 dollar app. However, this will almost definitely make for a great PC game (the game’s website claims that a PC version will be coming “soon”), and I very much look forward to that.
