Another great work
After Arayh made Etherena, which is IMO the best Flash game ever created, he comes up with a game with a completely different style yet still manages to be elaborate, challenging, and very fun. The sprites are all very good, and I love the little touches like Buttercup doing a kame-hame-ha and Bell with Gir. The controls are very tight and intuitive, and it's a great fighting system, imagine Etherena Beta in perpetual juggle mode (albeit with limited juggles) at a slower pace. The blocking and dashing system means that it's very hard to hit someone but if you do they are in for a world of pain.
The character AI's, like in Etherena, are excellent, they are very difficult, react to you well, and aren't terribly stupid. The game has a very wide challenge level so that beginners and hardcore gamers alike may be pleased. The final boss in particular, Shira Bell, is a throwback to Etherena's Elites and is one of the hardest things that I've ever run up against in a video game. However the only problem here is that Shira is so much more challenging than the preceding opponents that you usually can clear the rest of a given difficulty level with ease, then take forever to defeat Shira. After hours of fighting Shira at level 7, I blew through level 8 with ease, and still can't beat Shira at level 8.
The characters all have their distinct techniques and their plusses and minuses. Dexter is slow and strong, Buttercup is melee-oriented, Bubbles and Rowdyruffs are combo kings, and Blossom has the amazing ice breath attack. Overall, it's all balanced, with the exception of Bell. Bell's ridiculous. Her only minus is that her dash is a little slower, but in exchange you get an uber jump, superior melee, a cylinder to nuke anyone who gets above you, and most importantly the most amazingly rigged long-ranged attack in the game. All you really have to do is spam that and your enemies are soon vanquished. To give an example of how much Bell excels, just today I was having problems with Invader Zim at difficulty 8 with Buttercup (who I've been using for a very long time, ever since I started playing the game). I in desperation tried using Bell, who I had never played at all before, and with her amazing maneuverability I fried Zim. Then, I had to fight myself, and I blew it out of the park using my rigged attacks. Shira prevailed over me in the end, but I defeated her once and the other two rounds were close ones. When I quickly switched to Buttercup, I could hardly damage Shira at all. But still, it's an incredible game.
