If you could turn your phone for left and right it would really a perfect help for beginners, since even more realistic.

Enjoying it so far but I WISH I could swap the kite control to the right side (thumb). That's my only complaint as a right hander
Yeah, controls are a bit funky for me as well...

Anyone else wonder if it's too realistic in terms of training? Already have a problem with people having no experience trying it out for the first time in a spot and having a problem happen and not knowing how to deal with it. That's how people get hurt and we lose access. I'm all for new riders in the sport! But wondering if there's a way to promote proper lessons here?
If the bar could be in the bottom middle and extend to about 75% of the screen width it would be perfect (for me). Maybe a semi-transparent bar so it doesn't block you from seeing other things.

Yeah this game is pretty cool. Definitely some left brain stuff going on controlling the kite and edging the board. The carving tutorial took a few tries....(30+) It's a good $2 time killer that's for sure.
Speaking of killer, it really nukes my battery.........but that's just my hog jumbotron cellphone. It gets hot after about 15 min playing.lol That's all my attention span is really good for anyway.

Just downloaded it. In 5 minutes up to the carving. Getting stuck there. Problem is the bar pressure and board feeling seem to be absent. Gives me a hard time to be strictly dependant on sight...

In real life I tried Kitesurfing with my eyes closed. That seems to be easier :lol:

Hey nice update Kiteboard Hero! I'm curious if you guys are following feedback from here on Kiteforum? Lol
The bigger bar and sensitivity settings helped! The guys wanting bar controls on the right side can now change too.

Now if we could only change the rider out of the full wetsuit to just harness and boardshorts that would be great!......also any chance of adding a Carved Imperator to the board mix? 😉

While I'm wishing, can you please add a map with waves to boost off of!

This game is really cool.
Thank you!
