Issues fixed[edit]

Ship movement stuck in one direction[edit]

When using a controller, the game re-calibrates directional input at the start of each level. Holding a direction at the beginning of a level can result in this issue.
Force game to recalibrate controller input
  1. Pause the game.
  2. Select "Rebind Controls" on the pause menu.
  3. Have all players select "Ready".
  4. Unpause the game.
