Nice, seems you are on a roll :-)

I'm one of those that can't understand why touch games are so popular, you can directly see what has been converted from mobile to PC.

They can have a place with puzzle games and those match games - but not ones that require a lot of interaction from the user.

Good article. That time when users testing your game are surprised that they can't use keyboard to play it :D or that You took different design way opposite to other similar games.. One thing that You didn't approach is localization / game translation issues, but maybe You will deal with that during development of Your next project :P

Even if someone speaks English it's nice to see that game support your own language and that way localization for foreign markets (specially Asia->China/Japan/Korea and at least western Europe languages) can have some significant impact on sales. But yeah, sometimes localization can be painful   :sick:
