I am writing a simple game where the controls require the ability to turn left and right (360deg).... move forward and backward, and "fire" a weapon.... so basicly 5 actions. I have two methods in mind, but not sure which way to go.
1) put up/down slider (guestures) on each side of the device. and the user "drives" like a tank, with a "fire button"
2) a fire button on one side, and a virtual joystick on the other..... steering would be with thumb
