How are new players supposed to learn to play this game?
Other co-op games (e.g. Torchlight 2, Dungeon Defenders, etc.) have varying levels of difficulty so that new players can learn to play. Even on the easiest difficulty setting in Dungeonland we get killed pretty much instantly. No idea how to progress, no idea how to improve. It is not fun to simply die non-stop. The shared life thing means you can't carry a player that isn't as good (read that to mean you can't play with your younger kids).
We're extremely disappointed in this game, it had a lot of promise but the gameplay just isn't there for casual/new players. Hopefully the devs will consider this as right now, had I tried a demo I certainly would not have bought the 4-pack, which I am stuck with now.
