What's with the controls?

OK, maybe someone can enlighten me as to what's going on, as I downloaded the trial for this and have been left feeling like this game is broken.

What is up with the controls being wrong? When I press up the ship goes down and when I press down it goes up. Now I know this works fine in some games - for example when you're piloting a plane, but in a side-scrolling shooter? What other side-scrolling shooter does that?

So maybe some people would prefer this - I prefer my Y axis to be inverted when playing FPS's for example - but where is the option to turn it the other way round?

For me, this one thing made the game more annoying than fun. I'm just wondering why on earth the developers would ever do this!?

Are you sure your preferences for the 360 are not set to inverted? The controls are as they should be for me, up is up, down is down.

Yeah I did consider this, as my prefs on the actual 360 ARE set to inverted, but I've only ever known that affect FPS games and games where it just makes sense. And even so, you can usually switch it to the other way regardless of the setting on your 360.

But if everyone else is fine then I guess that that is the reason after all. Very bizarre though - perhaps an oversight on the developers behalf? I can't imagine anyone would want to play it like that....

Anyway, I thought I'd ask on here first as it saves me from fiddling with the settings on my 360 to experiment - cheers for the answers!

Yeah, this happened to me. Up and down were inverted when I first started playing.

I fixed it by quitting the game, switching the Y-Axis default settings to Inverted, loading it up again, testing out the controls (still reversed), quitting the game a second time, switching the Y-Axis default settings to Normal and loading up the game.

It's been fine ever since. I don't know if all the steps are necessary, but it can't hurt to try.
