Bosses are so much easier than normal fights
I've killed the first two bosses, and had absolutely zero trouble with either of them since they telegraph their moves so much and are thus super-easy to block.

But Day 08 took me about six tries because I'd get comboed to hell by basic enemies. All it takes it getting hit once, and then you may as well put the controller down and walk away for ten minutes because that's how long it takes before you can actually do anything again with the stunlock you get into.

What the hell?

I assume you're talking about the enemies in the autumn level - the ones with magic attacks that split in mid-air? Yeah. Those are absolutely lethal, and you should probably go after them first. The flying golems (do those appear this early on Normal?) can be pretty nasty too. The Berserker optional skill helped me a little on my last attempt at that level on Cruel, I think. Maybe. It's been a little while.

The bosses pick up in difficulty on day 15. The first two are pretty easy, but the rest actually are more tricky to dodge and can take out most of your health in one attack and even blocking does little good because they'll break your guard unless you have hard turtle equipped.

I personally like Peacock as far as skills go, not sure if you'd have that yet, but it makes it easier to get those flying enemies. Also the moment you get regenerate, buy that one and equip it and level it up as much as you can. It helps a lot in the later areas, just move around a lot and stay out of the way, hit with peacock when you can and you heal up a bit and still do damage. Combine with blocking and backstepping and it can be a livesaver. Also when you continue you keep whatever experience you got before running out of health, so that can help too since you might get a level in the meantime.

Oh god how do I tackle the vortex level in the winter area? Day 17 I think. The vortex is at the top but I have trouble getting up there because I can't see the flying enemies because they're off the screen, and I end up jumping into their attacks and getting knocked back down to the floor.

I'm using STR Up and Regen and they helped a lot beating Shynie (I retreated a couple of times onto a mushroom and dodge-hopped back and forth until I healed up to full again) but Regen at least doesn't seem helpful on the vortex levels.

Should I switch to Berserker maybe?

I used HP Boost and STR Boost for most of the game, I didn't have that much difficulty with these.

STR Boost and Regenerate: I used this for most of Cruel and Guardian Mode, and I know another guy who did too. The main reason I switched to Berserker was because of the magic attacks of the weak enemies in the autumn area and their tendency to bounce you around and kill you before you can do anything about it. I don't think that's as much of a problem in the winter area.
If you're having trouble hitting the birds, you may want to consider equipping Tears of Sol and/or Lightning Drop - the large areas of these skills make hitting the birds easier - but if it's just not being hit by them that's the problem then I have no ideas, since I get hit by them a lot too.

Edit: You could also try jumping to just below the ledge and using Silhouette Mirage to teleport past it, since the birds usually attack at ground level? I dunno, if knockback is a problem then Berserker might not be a bad idea, but I think it is still possible to get knocked over with it equipped.

I roll STR Boost and Pinball Wizard for the vortex levels. Kicking dudes into each other and the vortexes just completely destroys them.

I think first boss was hard but after that they were all easy. 3 boss was compelte joke.
and don't have any problems with normal enemies either, heck I like it when I get over run by enemy. cos I love the effect when they hit each other X3
takes about 1h to get the game through if you don't do anything stupid....with that I mean dying.

WTF?! Boss battles are easy?

I play on easy and I can't beat Plum (day 20) and watching YT videos doesn't help at all. Boss battles are something worst I ever saw!

My review of game:
Very good fighting game EXCEPT boss battles. They are TERRIBLE. Boss' attacks will interupt your attack on them which is COMPLETE BULLS.IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And less they have energy, their attacks become stronger, they use more advanced attacks and they cheat because they read your moves easily, and that's just in EASY mode!!! COMPLETE and UTTER BULLS.IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More BS - there are only good several skills and if you don't buy them - play again, ha ha - NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DON'T WASTE your money on it except if it's not part of some (indie) bundle.

The only good thing I got in some indie bundle otherwise I would totally waste my money.

I actually kind of agree with that, too! Most of the bosses (read: Listine and Shynie) are hilariously easy to cheese with Peacock, Silhouette Mirage, Regen and Hard Turtle, but if you want to beat them fairly, they're way more difficult than most stages.

I have no idea how you managed to get through the autumn shooty monsters (the red ones I think), though. Those things are absurd.

(apparently steam forums partially ♥-out a certain synonym of absurd?)
