Hello! Thanks for your feedback :)
I understand the frustration with the rotation. There are different Control Modes in the Options where you can switch to a smooth one like you suggest, or change which key rotates in which direction. I think user-customizability is important. Mouse controls were deliberately not added though, both because I felt it'd be too easy, and because I wanted this to feel like a handheld game.
The skip feature is on the list for things to be added after the voting/judging period. Like most issues, it had to be down-prioritized due to lack of time :)
