I've cursed more at this game in the last 7 hours it took me to win it, than any other game I can think of, which is saying something. The reason I got this game was because a read a few reviews that said it was hard, and slightly difficult to control, but I could probably work with that. Well...
Controls: On the ground changing directions happens instantly, no delay super nice. In the air however you float around sceaming and the computer BACK UP BACK UP! But noooo! It wont, it can't. The girl is so fricken big the levels with her were a pain, and since I have such a hard time with the air controls I found the cave levels to be the most fun, as all you have to do is time your jump right.
That is... until I almost won the game. It occured to me that it is a really good thing that this game is not multiplayer as a few platformers I've played have been, because with a 5ms delay it would be impossible, the window to actually make your jump on the end cave levels is like 0.4 seconds long, and 0.4 might be a little generous.
The levels are at most around 20-25 seconds long, most can be completed in about 12-15 seconds.
Now you may have recommended this game, and that my review seems negative... here's why. I was thinking about it and I want my friends to suffer at least as much as I did with this game. I've decided, if one of them can win the game which is all 100 levels, and get at least 75 Shinies before they accumulate the 1000 deaths achievement, I will give them 20$. I want my friends rediscovering all of their swears and all of the colorful ways to use them, and then I want to laugh in their faces as they get so close and fail miserably right at the end! That being said... I have a feeling at least one of them will breeze through this almost impossible game pretty much flawlessly and be like, meh... that wasn't too hard...
That said, for that reason, I say yes, I would recommend this game, because well... In an odd way, I'm doing just that to my friends. :P However, if you are thinking about playing the game, and you don't mind achieving the far too easy to get 1000 deaths achievement, then yes, go ahead and get it, you might like it. I personally will likely NEVER TOUCH THIS GAME AGAIN! And I mean that with all the seathing hatred I can muster... Aaah, my rant is over... now I can feel better. (°-°)
