Can I please get some suggestions on how to perform back,forward special moves for Street Fighter 2 on the iPhone.

For example moves like Guile's Sonic Boom with this action <- -> is near impossible and I can only get it to work about 1 in 100 times.

Other moves like anything Sagat does are reasonably easy.

Is my timing off or is this just damn hard on the iPhone?

Are you charging the move long enough?

Unless they changed the move requirements for the iphone, sonic boom is supposed to be hold back for 2 seconds then forward + punch.

Worked great. After all these years I need to practice timing. – xiaohouzi79 Jun 18 '11 at 8:23
