NEXUS commented on Review: Horizon Riders (WiiWare):

Hi guys, I'm Andres "NEXUS" Chamarra, one of the programmers during this project, I wanted to comment on the controls issue:
First of I'm no longer with Sabarasa so I can't really do anything about them, however, we tested the game a lot, both developers and dedicated testers, and after a while the plan B control scheme don't bother much, some people even preferred them to the balance board scheme, but it does take a while to get used to them.

The reason we didn't include the plan C scheme was that it practically removed all difficulty from the game, we wanted the controls without board to emulate the board experience as much as possible, when testing with real audience in an expo we noticed that even on the board people instinctively tilted their zappers, so it seemed like the way to go.
The game is hard and meant to be hard, and we felt the plan C scheme broke that, in retrospect perhaps we should have included it anyway with a warning "plan C is for newbies" but its kind of late now.

Anyway it gives me a more than warm feeling seeing the satisfied comments of the people that gave it a chance, hope it takes away the feeling of regret that so many board buyers had expressed
