The mouse completely controls Loop Hero’s gameplay on PC. The left click is used to place tiles, equip items, and more, while the right click is needed to pause time and enter planning mode. With such a simple control scheme, some may question why controller support is necessary.
Those who play on PC and use a TV or prefer to sit further from their computer would benefit from controller support. The Nintendo Switch release proves that Loop Hero is perfectly suited for controller inputs and could be added to the PC version.
