A few tips that might prove useful
I haven't gone too far into the game yet, so far I reached level 3 but I am really enjoying the game and I would like to help people that seem to have a hard time with it.

First and most importantly check your settings and make sure that you have the zoom function on toggle that way you will always see whatever is next and you can dodge much easier.

Second is a small trick I found that will make your playthrough much much easier, I noticed that once you throw the spear the moment it leaves your hand you can cancel that long animation either by rolling or jumping. That in itself is really good but you can do something even better, throw the spear and press jump the moment it leaves your hand, then spear again almost at the same time as jump and you will see 2 spears one after the other and then you can throw a third one while you are falling from your jump at which point you can do a double jump and throw yet another spear. With this little trick you can kill enemies that have a ton of health like the flowers in seconds. In general the spears will come in handy a lot especially at the second level.

And the final tip I can give you, is to not be afraid of using your shield once it is upgraded, at first it can only take 2 before breaking but once it is upgraded it doesn't break anymore and it can cover your back while climbing on ropes and such. Really handy at the temple with all those arrow traps and on level 2 against the oysters.

Those are my tips so far, if I discover anything else I will post it here in case someone finds my tips helpful.
Good luck and I hope this helps.:thumb:

Helpful indeed. Being able to cancel any air attack into the double jump is actually a must for the game.

I didn't know about any of these tips but I just cleared the game. It's not that hard.

Yep you are right it isn't that hard if you pay attention to the patterns of the enemies :squirtyay: (the extra versions of the levels are still challenging though) but the animation cancelling makes it feel more fluid and makes some areas very easy

The jumping cancel is simple you just throw the spear in the air and immediately press jump again, it will make you do a double jump so you do damage with that or you can throw yet another spear.
Hope this helps :happycthulhu:
