I wish this game were about 80% as difficult as it is. I mean, it’s fair, and I’m not marking it as a flaw necessarily; but I just don’t think I’m good enough to keep up with it, and I love everything about the look and sound so much I want to see the whole game. One or two extra hit points would do it. Or maybe regaining a hitpoint with a parry?
It probably doesn’t help that I’m playing on a Steam controller, where the face buttons are close enough together that I’ll accidentally trigger the special when I’m holding down shoot and hit jump.
Anyway, I have zero regret about my purchase and would have been happy to chip in the $20 just to support them in making such a gorgeous game.
