I think it was more a mix of the controls and the sometimes awkward camera angles that annoyed me with Ecstatica!
Running into another screen/area and then running back out of it by accident due to the camera showing from a completely different angle annoyed me a bit! I always ended up facing the wrong way or running back into the previous area by accident etc... I'm sure it would have been a great game but i did not have the patience
Maybe i will give it another go using Dosbox and a control pad
I also think the buttons should have been spread across the keyboard a bit better too.... I did not like them being all in one place on the numpad, accidently pressing the wrong one sometimes when you really don't want to
.... to be honest it has been so long that i cannot really remeber the controls
