     controls: sometimes are  kinda slow: 3

There's a bit of delay navigating from/ to the main menu, because of the MP3 file.

Is this where you are experiencing delay?

It's not about difficulty, It's about gameplay.

There's a bit of delay navigating from/ to the main menu, because of the MP3 file.

Is this where you are experiencing delay?

Between the button press and the character's reaction there is a little delay, it's not a second, maybe it's a millisecond but is a little anoying when you need to drop your fish quickly. By the way,  I played in my DS, maybe in an emulator the game's reaction is better and more fluid.
