Opinion
I heard good things about this game but it seems like a crappy game lacking detail. What is good about this?

Roguelike, random dungeons, very challenging. You wouldn't like it- it's only for men with cojones.

It's a cartoon style game that is for kids if anything.

Kids these days only care about graphics. Go back to CoD brosef, this game clearly isn't for you.

If you want to play a manly game with manly graphics, try Dark Souls 2. It's on sale

You're the one calling people children and saying others comments are invalid based on your sentence structure you aren't great at the english language now leave me alone if you don't want to give your opinion on the game. I'm not here to fight i was giving my first impression, i don't see why this should anger you. If you don't want to answer the question please leave.

What do you mean by lacking detail? Do you mean about the graphics or about the content? The game has tons of content, including a wide variety of enemies and secrets. So there's a lot of detail there.

Graphically, I can't say much. It's a matter of opinion, I guess. I think it's pretty and fits the game, but you may disagree. Even if you dislike its graphics, give it a try if you like hard platform games. It's worth it even when full price.

The combat is pretty much whipping and jumping on top of enemies. There are some weapons, such as shotguns and boomerangs, but what really stands out is the variety of enemies. Some jump towards you, some spits poison on you, some shoot stuff at you, some eat you, and so on. Each enemy requires a different strategy, which is nice and keeps the game fresh.

The game have a lot of traps as well. So, if you consider all the enemies, all the items and all the traps, you'll have a lot of gameplay before you get bored. Really. I have 158 hours and I'm still not bored.

I liked combat and ability to throw various things like skulls, arrows from traps and even mouse. :)
The only thing I strongly dislike is a time limit and ghost. I like to play games at my own pace.
When I first encountered it I was thinking that ghost appearance indicates that exit is nearby, but after I read some posts on a forum I found that it is time limit.
This knowledge alone is turning me away from the game. When I played it I was like "wow i want to play it, I want to rescue all the damsels, I want to explore every corner and collect all the gems!", but now when I learned about time limit its like "meh I have to skip everything and I'll fail anyway because I need to hurry".

If slowness and carfullness would win the game, where would we put the fun?

Sure, people could still go fast and reckless by choice, but then there tends to be a bit too much regret when you die: "why didn't I take that slower?" "maybe I should be more carefull." The preasure is an excuse to die and have fun doing it.

Actually going slow and careful can win the game. It doesn't lead to a high score thou, but that is completely optional. You can beat Olmec (and the game) with zero gold bars and just the starter inventory of bombs and ropes. All you have to do is get to him without dying.

Cartoony look doesn't mean its for kids.
Its a hardcore rougelike platformer, people even complaining that its too hard, i would not recommend this to kids. But if you care so much about it then dont buy, i dont see a problem here.

It's a game where Shopkeepers ♥♥♥♥ you up. That's all I gotta say.
