This game is pure epicness, but way too hard, i've been trying to get past level 18 for days D:, still great job
Best Game Ever!!!
This game was great. Music was superb. Controls are minimal and precise, which keeps things simple, but allows for good map design. Pacing was incredible, action was great, variance was great. I had a lot of fun. Looking forward to future releases. I was disappointed in a few of the guns; they seemed worthless (saw blade, infection gun, and machine gun).
It took me ~2.5-3 hours to get all of the achievements. The final one was a real bitch, ahaha, but damn, I'm glad you made it beatable! I had to play that final worm level like 50 to 100 times before I beat it (~3 tries with the acid walk boots).
For anyone playing this: make sure you don't buy too much junk (the only weapons you need are spread, laser, and rocket). You need $6,000 for the final item/related achievement (which basically gives you all equipment; you'll see), and you only get money from the coins and website visit promo machine.
Only get 1 of each permanent sphere. Only buy like two pieces of equipment of each type before getting maxed stats. For special attribute equipment, get the no loss of speed when damaged armor, the no speed loss on goo boots, and the save 1 sphere of each type if you die gloves. Also get the acid boots, as they will let you complete all of the levels in a few tries so that you can get the final item, then go back and beat the ones you used them on (MAKE NOTE OF WHICH LEVELS YOU BEAT WITH ACID BOOTS IF YOU WANT THE FINAL ACHIEVEMENT).
This game is ridiculous.
Particularly the ending. It's absolutely mind blowing how deep and emotionally tied the final sequence is, regardless of how 2 dimensional the main character is. It pulls the heart strings. Truly.
However, I'm a little stumped. Even after beating the game, I can't seem to unlock the secret levels. Am I doing something wrong at the end? Regardless, this game is horribly addicting, and I'm going to be replaying all the levels for a really long time.
Thanks for the review, glad you found the story compelling! To access the secret level you need to collect all the coins
