Cons:

  • Difficult even on easy.
  • Awkward jump mechanic where by to jump high you have to press up and jump at the same time and using analogue is tricky for it to be recognised.
  • Only one state save slot.
  • Bad checkpoints.
  • Not out in the EU.
  • Few broken animations/ enemies stuck on loop.
  • Enemies respawn almost instantly.
  • Boss battle areas are small and encounters are really tough.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
