More of a warning than a bug, I imagine. The digital keyboard on my Kindle Fire has no effect during the react minigame some chips use. use You may consider an optional clickable button since only one keyless is necessary.

Minigame, not monagomy. Stupid Kindle.

I knew that non-PC devices would come up eventually, but I thought I'd have more than 48 hours until they came up. ;) A button sounds like a reasonable alternative in this case.

Out of curiosity, how is everything else holding up? I didn't do a lot of testing yet beyond Firefox-PC, so I have no idea how that could go.

Everything else I've encountered works as well as can be expected. I would suggest changing the 'hold a button' slider minigame for things like recover 10 and barrier to something like... oh what would you call it... ever seen the moving arrow meter for kickoffs and fieldgoals in a football game? That might work. A line that goes back and forth and you have to press the button at a certain time.

Other than that, everything's good. I mean I hit the wrong box using vulcan on it, but that's because my fingers are too fat. I can just zoom in to use those.

I think I've seen the game mechanic you mention in golf games. That's a good one, but I'd rather keep it as another minigame, either on the attack or defense front. Another idea would involve the same trick as the "react" move: add a button that needs to be pressed for a set amount of time. That way, you have the same action to perform, although using a different input.

It's good to hear that it works well enough in most situations, I didn't expect such a positive result. :) If the Kindle Fire works, there's hope that most other tablets will handle the game gracefully, even if it's not always ideal.

Considering that the fire is outpaced in suck only by the Nook... yeah, it should work fine on them there fancy ipads and such. And yes, that golf thing is essentially the same thing.
