Truly hardcore, but the mechanics (mostly jumping and ledges) are subpar.
If they were properly set, this would be a great game. It brings memories back from the real nintendo hard videogames.
They werent kidding about the collision detection and faulty jumping, I usually try to finish every game before I do a review but the bugs make me want to punch a hole in my monitor, I think I'll refrain and maybe try again when I want to kill a good mood.
Wasted my time on a game with poor control all the way to sector 15 to find out that medal doesn't work.
The game is nice and all, but its also pretty damn frustating.
The 2 things that pisses me off the most are:
1. most of the time, when i jump to one of those small platforms, right in the middle, i magically fall down and die.
2. sometimes (uncommonly), the guy just decides to run off a platform, even when im not pressing the button.
Those 2 pretty much made the game night impossible for me.
Other than that, good game, concept and music. 5/10.
medal for 3000 crystals actually takes 5000. glitchy jumping: falling from great height while holding jump sometimes causes to do very short hop, running off ledge while jumping sometimes causes shorter hop.
made me rage quite a bit, especially the medal because i suicide after i hit 3000.
