This is flipping incredible, my friend. Great work.
I really really like the pinch to zoom. I did that with my android nethack port. It just makes sense.
The only nits I have to pick is there's no key to make the keyboard come up. I watched the videos, so I know all about swiping up from the bottom. But my ipad has something already that swipes from the bottom, and the programs have to fight it out for me to get a keyboard.
The action menu is great, but if you wanted to make it better, you could move some of the less used commands to the bottom. Like, view factions, ignore nearby enemy, view kills, pause (as it's done just tapping the screen) center view, swap inventory letters, toggle attack mode of wielded items, plus all the move views could go to the bottom of that list, in my opinion.
Or better yet, make it customizable, like long press to move the commands around the menu screen. Or maybe long press to bring it off the action menu and dock it on the desktop.
Any plans for mouse movement by touching? That would be sweet. I guess you would need a pause key though, maybe the middle of the d pad?
Like I said, I am very very impressed, you did an amazing job! My daughter now thinks I am a goddamned wizard because pictures I made are in a game on her tablet, and I wouldn't trade that for anything. Thank you so much.
