I am developing Android an game. It's going to be a top-down shooter with stealth features. I am now thinking about how to the make controls. Most top-down games are now twin stick (joystick on the left and right sides) but I need more buttons (for choosing weapons, commanding your squad, and using skills).
So here are my ideas:
- Two (virtual) sticks like in other games, when you tap somewhere on the display, a circle with buttons appears, where you can choose abilities or weapons.
- One stick on the left side for walking, shoot where the second finger is pressed, weapons and skills on the right side.
What do you think is the best? Or do you have any other idea? I want to choose the most intuitive and simplest.
