This game needs an easy mode
Im sure there are many many people who want to play this game for the art style alone who arent so good at platformers and this definitely is one hard game. I can scrape through myself on some levels but damn is it just a bit frustrating sometimes, my son who also loves the look of this game too had to give up on co op because of the insane difficulty too.

Surely an optional easy mode with more health or actual checkpoints wouldnt kill the feel of the game for others who want the challenge to be extra high.

They actully have this in game, when you start a level it asks if you want to play on regular or novice.

when you start level, you choose between simple and regular.

Yes that is only on the boss fight levels, the run and gun ones have no options, and I didnt really notice any differenceon either mode, maybe the boss had less health or something but its still hard as ♥♥♥♥.
The high difficulty is kind of the point, and the simple difficulty outright removes the harder phases from the boss fights if you were curious.

The store description mentions actually nothing about difficulty, the art style of the games the true selling point.
If you're really having trouble with the forest level, go talk to the apple man on the map, he'll gve you 3 coins. combined with the free tutorial coin, you can buy any item from the shopkeeper. (I recomend the smoke gernade that turns you dash into a dodge)

I want to choose between Dean and Pigeon.

So far the game is intense but actually bearable. I am having fun dying and doing better and better as I go. Beat 2 bosses so far and they are a blast.

Yeah it is fair at least, once you learn the patterns its doable, its a lot of trial and error though.

Still would love to be able to play through this at all in co op with someone less skilled than me.

Try upgrading health in the shop. It reduces damage so boss fights may get a bit tougher, but this seems to be the way to adjust difficulty for run-and-gun.

yeah, the game needs some rebalancing. The extra heart shouldn't reduce damage, the Flower boss needs his final stage HP reduced, the first super needs to give a 1 second damage immunity uppon finnishing, and parry-jumps need to be higher.

Had to refund the game because it was too difficult for my liking.

Agreed, I think the game needs to toggle between a "Co-Op" and "Solo" difficulty. I'm doing ok so far, the game was cearly built around being able to instantly revive your friend.
You mean Dean Takahashi mode.
