- Fixed: Closing a Door on a Cube will now push the cube correctly out of the way
- Fixed: The game should display correctly full-screen on devices with notches (@DragoXqwas#9794)
- Fixed: If timed correctly, you could drop a cube while running against a wall, and go “inside” it. It would send the cube flying far away. This is now harder to achieve, but can still happen in some edge cases.
- Changed: When a cube collides with the player, the player is pushed back a little. This helps reducing the bug above.
- Fixed: When the player is pushed horizontally by an edge of a moving platform, it will no longer push the player through walls anymore. It should teleport him above / below that platform.

- Fixed: In some cases, the Shoot on-screen virtual button was not displayed, even if the Taser Control Type was set to Virtual Button in Options.
- Fixed: You could get out of the room before Weapons room without getting the Taser Gun, if you stacked cubes. Now, this room starts closed, and is only open after getting the Taser Gun. If you try to get out, your character will die instead of skipping this area (@libreuser#9447)
- Fixed: In Chapter 4, the wooden Log would disappear if squashed by a vertical moving platform. It will now be respawned correctly inside the cage (@libreuser#9447)

- Fixed: In some cases, a cube on a pressure plate could incorrectly activate linked objects
- Fixed: You could bring a cube at the end of Chapter 1. Now, the cube will be destroyed. (@libreuser#9447)

- Fixed: Various gaps and visual bugs reported recently
- Fixed: On some devices, outdoor ending camera was not taking the entire screen (@libreuser#9447)
- Fixed: In some cases, the Bonus button would not be aligned correctly
Changed: Updated teleporter previews in Chapter 4
This changelog information is for the update 1.9.8 of the Pocket Edition of Fractal Space.
You can now fully customize the size and placement of all in-game buttons on the screen in order to place the Jump and Shoot buttons wherever you wish! For shooting with the Taser-Gun, you can chose between a taser-tap on the 3D model of the taser itself, or an additional virtual button.
This makes it much easier to play on large-screen devices like the Apple iPad Pro or large Android tablets.
You can now invert character movement and camera rotation placement in order to have the camera control on the left side, and character movement on the right side; that makes it more comfortable for left-handed players!
How much the screen is dedicated to either camera control or character movement is now also adjustable.
