The main issue which very annoyed me was the scrolling to accelerate. Took me too long to understand that, to the point I've almost ditched the game, and it's tedious and it's just takes out the fun. The idea however is fine.
I'm sorry that the splitting of movement and acceleration was confusing. It's definitely an issue we're aware of--people are often stumped in the beginning because the controls are pretty unconventional. It's an issue that we could've easily avoided with a few playtests but that's hard to do during a game jam haha. Thank you for persevering and playing anyway though!!
