I’ll double check but it does have touch I think but it’s not practical. For the most part you don’t need to use the cursor.
I was trying to figure out if the run was slower because I was like… I don’t think I’m actually running. It sounds like it is somewhat slower but I haven’t personally confirmed.
I bought it since the PC version seemed fun from the 8 hours or so I put into it but I wanted to play on the couch. I still haven’t played much of it. I keep going back to Picross and Golf Story. Steamworld Dig 2 has been good so far too but I still don’t think I enjoy it as much as other Metroid style games. If you want a really good one of those on the Switch wait for Hollow Knight to come. I originally really disliked that game but once I sort of framed what that game was in my head it became really fucking good.
