It looks absolutely stunning.

I'm sure I will pick it up for that reason alone. I'm that shallow.

I really want to pick it up but I'm not sure how well I'll handle the hardcore jumping and dashing controls.

Visually stunning and deserves to be lauded for that. But gameplay-wise I don't think this is for me.

Hmm on second thoughts after watching the Giant Bomb quick look I think I'm with Sly.

Sure is pretty though.

I watched some of Outside XBox's stream of this. It looks nightmarishly difficult, way beyond what I would think fun.

I was being facetious off the back of that video with the awful journalist who had clearly never played a platform game in his life.

People seriously think this looks too hard? I think it looks fantastic fun.

Well, even practically all of the positive reviews on its Steam page (of which there are many) use the words 'challenging', 'difficult' and 'punishing', while one of its tags is 'difficult'.

So, yeah, I think its difficulty as seen on the high side. And that's fine, lots of people like games like that, but it's not my own personal idea of a good time. Which is fine.

That's where I am with it - I never got on with the genre either, so looks pretty but definitely not for me.

Fucking love it!

It's so great the animation the boss fights, the music and I may suck at it but I got to world 2 when streaming it earlier :D

Get the game it needs a sequel!

10/10 from Angry Joe:



Does highlight the extreme difficulty, but says the polish and presentation made it, for him, worth persevering with.

Really enjoying it so far. The art and music is all just bang on.

It's tricky but nothing too unfairly punishing so far. Every boss has had clear patterns and telegraphed attacks so once you've taken your time to learn the sequence they're all fairly simple.

Fantastic game though. Some really creative artwork involved.

Yep and the bosses have a fair few different phases or attack patterns so it keeps you on your toes. Only made it to world 2 and did 4 of the bosses so far I think, It's not something you can play for hours on ends though but a hour here and there works perfectly for me :)
