Wireless XBox360 Controller
It's a shame that the developer isn't able to get the game to work with that controller type after all this time. Money wasted...

It's literally two buttons and arrow keys. What do you need a controller for?

I'm getting tired of people complaining about controller support for simple 2 button control games and then dismissing the game because they want to use some complex 8 button system for a 2 button puzzle game.

Dumping excellent game just because it does not support wireless? Your loss, and your justification is stupid. Nowhere did it say game supported wirless pad. BTW we are on pc.

Well, no controller support means no Steam Big Picture support for this game :(

I'm pretty sure this is a troll post, if not then I feel sorry for the human being who wrote this. This game has such simple controls it is not even funny, this isn't no damn first person shooter for goodness sake. Go play COD or something if you really want to use a controller to make you feel good about yourself.

Hi there. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the controller. If you're trying to get controller binding to work on PC and you're having trouble, might I suggest JoyToKey? The Binding of Isaac recommends it in their game, so I figure it's gotta be reasonably useful. From what I understand, it allows you to map specific keyboard keys to controller buttons - sort of like controller emulation. There's a link here:

Hope you enjoy the game, and thanks for playing.

This is really weird. I have both type of controllers, and the game only works with an Xbox 360 wired controller. It feels like a half-baked controller support... First time I see something like this (:P)

By the way, Xpadder is a great program to configure keys with your gamepad. That should also work.

It's working perfectly with my wireless 360 controller. You guys do realise that you need to have a wireless 360 controller reciever for your controller to be able to connect to your pc, right?

The game has about six buttons which aren't hard to use on a keyboard, heck typing is more difficult than using your arrow keys to navigate. But if people need their controllers for this game that super ultra badly then go use Steam BigPicture, it has a controller program built into it. Or if you want something on windows then use Xpadder.

To be honest I understand not being happy with using keys, I wouldn't want to be hunched over my laptop when playing this game. Saying that, my wired xbox pad works fine, I haven't tweaked any settings that I remember ...

LOL, OBVIOUSLY! (:P)

I use my wireless controller to play all my PC games only, and only found this issue with this game, and "Ittle Dew"... I also have the latest drivers installed, and the official Microsoft receiver (included in the same package with the controller).

Couldn't get this game to work at all, period. It loads fine, but the more advanced hardware you have on your PC the more likely you are to be screwed. Wireless Logitech keys (K800) and wireless Xbox 360 controller here. Nothing is recognized. I even busted out a wired 360 controller and still no dice. Running a quad core overclocked on Windows 7 Pro. Windows doesn't even recognize my 360 wireless receiver any more. It's amazing how such a tiny game can do so much damage. Had I been informed I needed to dig out my old 386 with everything wired I probably wouldn't have bought the game. Oh well, good thing I have a job and money doesn't matter

Great Game but missing Xbox 360 Controller support too...
Playing most time on TV so it would be nice to get a support soon.
Cant be that hard to implement it to the game

Whew, almost got suckered into buying this game. Saw this thread and it saved me, thanks for the info! Maybe someday the dev will return!

This game officially killed my wireless 360 receiver. I'm a localization engineer and have numerous machines in the house and I've tested it on each one. It's completely dead. I even had audio problems after running this game to where I couldn't use my Logitech usb headset on a specific usb port. I had to change ports and completely reconfigure all of my audio settings. I'm in shock at the amount of damage this tiny little piece of ♥♥♥♥ game caused. Horrific coding. I swear this game was created for THE crappiest, oldest machine you've got laying around. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!

lmfao what are you even talking about? A game can't do that, either you're trolling or just an idiot.
