Glad you like it!
That's really strange how it maps the buttons. You're using an xbox 360 controller right? I'd imagine it's pretty difficult to play with select and start as the blow/suck buttons.
That looks like a pretty awesome controller. As it's not a 360 controller that explains why the layout is weird. But hey, if it worked for you, it worked. I'm surprised that not just 360 controllers work with this game.
