You should be able to do that with the mouse scroll wheel.

Shouldn't. Are you using a mouse as well as the trackpad, or scrolling on a trackpad?

just trackpad. The game also lags extremely, so I'm about 900% sure that it's my 5 year old computer. To save space on the forum, I was also wondering if this game will ever come out on mobile.

Ah, haven't checked it yet on a trackpad. I'll try it tonight once I'm at home and see what I can find, so we know if it's the trackpad or the computer itself.

As for mobile...no guarantees, but we have internally made the game into a single-click model. It's a little unusual, some weird things that we need to rethink, but the idea is to see how the game potentially could in the future run on tablets and the like. Not immediately of course (a few non-click things need to be accounted for as well, such as zoom), but we know a lot of our fans are into mobile games and we'd like Galaxies to be there for them as well.

Again, no guarantees, but we are looking into it as an option.

EDIT: Attempted the trackpad and it had some issues, to say the least. Definitely adding this to the list to see how feasible it is. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you at this point.
