I cant see this game working well with any controller. I have played the PC version to death and it needs a mouse to point and click. Controllers (sticks/touchpads) wont be the same.
If you think it would be, you havnt played the PC version! The precision for some weps you need cant be done with a stick, and digging will be more cumbersome than point what you want to get rid of including blocks behind blocks.
Touchscreen controls I can see working better than a controller due to the reasons I said above, but on a small screen its horrible. I played this on my Note 10.1 and I gotta say its better, but horrible.. it needs a mouse and keyboard :/
Just my two cents ^^
