It's been so long since the first game created a name for itself, and 12 years later the promised sequel rears its head. Slyck, you did a great job not only with this game, but handling the fanbase of people who wanted this game so badly, so overall, wonderful.


Slyck responds:

Glad I could finally give you and everyone else the game you'd been waiting for for so long! Thanks for playing and keeping the faith through all those years!

I love the game, I really do. However, I feel like it's somewhat lacking in danger up until the bosses. Everything was fairly simple, even the cloaked man's first form, but the difficulty level spiked unbelievably with the final (?) boss/second form. I feel that giving us something to fight before this would've made it a little more understandable, but there were no battles so intense until that one. All the battles before were incredibly predictable and had a clear, concise rhythm that made them easy to defeat once recognized. This one, however, has too many moves that need frame-perfect dodging. The fists are a perfect example of this. When combined with the bouncing red balls that can damage you endlessly because of the lack of invincibility frames and that lasers that corner you, that fight is all about winning based on luck. It's hardly fair at all, in my opinion.

I am utterly in love with this game. So much thought and effort went into it and it was thoroughly enjoyable! I was going to rate it five after the first stage but it continued to wow me. I could gush for a while about the excellent use of animation (including secondary animations), use of cinematography, suspense building, story-telling, characters - not to mention brilliant and varied gameplay. I appreciate that while there was a health system, there was no lives system and dying meant a short backtrack not a hg one.

My only contentions are 1) I encountered a bug with Malikai where he froze in his first damage animation. Fortunately, I killed myself on his orbs and could just restart the boss fight. 2) The movement is a little sluggish and made the last boss less reactive and more memorisation. 3) The navigation - especially early on with the side stairs - was a tad finicky. Also, the artwork, while not spectacular was polished enough to not cause resentment.

I'm going to search out the first chapter and look forward to the next one! Thanks Slyck!

Very interesting game, and very precise and measured puzzles. The fight with the bosses is very good, it is difficult to avoid the attacks of the last boss, but he is the last and it is logical that he be the most difficult. Honestly, I really enjoyed playing this game
