Super Bit Dash for the Xperia Play

January 29, 2012

Good news for those who take mobile gaming very very serious (serious enough that you demand a controller). We at Fakepup are hard at work on the Xperia Play optimized version of Super Bit Dash.

For those living under a rock, the Xperia play is the Playstation phone, Sony’s wonder phone that slides open to reveal a gamepad. It’s a beauty and Super Bit Dash already plays great with the D-pad. It’s funny to see ¬†a game we promoted as not having a clunky virtual d-pad working really well with a physical d-pad – oh the irony.

With the D-pad you wont just play the game but also navigate the menus.

This is a Mockup of the store, if we can get it to work in under two weeks that is. That is our deadline – two weeks to have it running flawlessly. It looks a bit crowded but we didn’t originally consider physical controls so we are doing our best with the assets we have.

Of course those wanting to tap the buttons on screen and play by swiping the finger on the screen can still do so, but the D-pad offers a great deal more control. No excuse not to have your name on the top 10 highscores now. Unless you are Farmviller… Are you?
