I'm fairly neutral on sadomasochistically difficult platformers, but this one is particularly irritating to play. It takes much to long to respawn for something that's going to happen that often, made worse by how slow your character moves. It gets old fast
I understand it's not for everyone, thank you for the input, I'll take special care of how Sasha moves next time.
Has the same problem too many "hardcore" games have: mistakes the need for pixel perfect movement and brutal memorization for skilled play. I gave up after the third level because I just could not puzzle out the proper timing to proceed.
But I did focus on Pixel Perfect Movement and Brutal Memorization. It's all patterns.
I like the intro. And the title screen.
The game starts. No sir, I didn't like it.
Black moving spheres against a black background, the first level being 10 tmes harder than the more simplistic 2nd level, i dunno, i guess this is for people who like Chakan the Forever man.
Never heard of Chakan, learn something new everyday I guess!
I never heard of people struggling with the balls because they couldn't see them. Welp, I'll take that into consideration. Thank you for the insight.
way to hard, yes i know its supposed to be hardcore but when you cant get past the first stage its rideculious other than that good game
You can press B at the title screen and boom, you'll skip a level!
Had potential. I don't know about most of the game, because i died 20 times in the first set of obstacles. If the idea was to make a game that is so frustratingly annoying that one becomes bored and stops playing before even getting through 1/3rd of the first screen, then mission accomplished.
It's not that the levels are hard because they're well thought out, it looks like, it's that they're hard because they have a lot of shit that moves really fast and you pretty much have to rely on luck more than impeccable timing to get through.
So yeah, boo.
You can skip levels by pressing the B button on the title screen!
I am not gonna lower the difficulty, but you're more than welcome to try the rest of the game out!
There is no game. Trust me. DO NOT PLAY!
