I'm not a platformer fan ... But really enjoyed this one. Quality work all around.
Give it a try, it's worth it.
To Iarkeus: I have a few minor complains though. I almost gave up at 4th boss (story mode), the hardest for me by far. I identified some of the reasons:
- I suck.
- I got hit almost everytime I had to switch weapon as the keys to do so are quite far from the arrows.
- I lacked missile upgrades (had none).
Couldn't do much about the first two so decided to work on the 3rd. I'd have farmed a bit the earlier levels if it didn't mean to lose everything I picked up on the way to the boss. To avoid that, I went back into the level to find a few ressources, died on purpose in lava and repeat until I couldn't bear it anymore. Got some upgrades that way but it felt wrong and painful. When, at last, I managed to beat this chapter, I did the earlier ones again to get more health/upgrades and don't experience the same issue.
The rest of the game felt easy though, probably because of the lack of a proper death penalty.
Also, didn't find a use for the last weapon.
Don't get me wrong tho, it's a nice game you got there, very well done.
