Multi-touch control games


Recommended Posts

Do you guys believe that games that require multi-touch capabilities will not sell as well as games of equal quality that are just single touch?


I know some devices don't have multi-touch, but come on, it's 2013.  Even the ipod touch 3rd gen had multi touch back in 2009.


Is it that Mobile browsers don't take well to it?

If you handle it well, multi touch is not a problem. I have made several games that are using multitouch, and it was not a problem.


Though Firefox OS still handles it very poorly, so you might have bad surprises when testing (but they're probably working on it).

I don't think there is anything wrong with multi-touch when done well. Doesn't work on Android 2.x and you have to be really careful not to design a game that makes it easy for the player to accidentally trigger browser/OS gestures. Aside from that I don't see any issue.
