Ratings and Reviews
Much better, after April 2012 update
I rated this game 5 stars when I first played it. I thought it was amazing. Great atmosphere, excellent storytelling, and decent enough gameplay that I didn't get frustrated and give up on the entire game. When Phosphor Games said they would be revisiting their initial "freemium" plans for the game, I worried about what it meant, but was pleased to hear that they'd leave the original as a separate purchase, preventing me from having to deal with any sort of crap related to the upgrade.
Upon the initial update to the "freemium" model, the game suffered from severe graphics aliasing and an unforgiving difficulty that appeared to be a ploy to force players to pay money to progress. Health packs were not spawning at all and gold drops seemed to have been drastically reduced, preventing reasonably timed weapon upgrades. As a result, boss fights became significantly more difficult.
Thankfully, the latest update has fixed the health pack spawning issue. Unfortunately, the rate at which gold is dropped, is still too low, which is why I'm only giving 4 stars instead of the 5 I gave for the initial release.
I've been a fan of this game since it came out. Proudly I say I've beaten it on all three endings. Saw the update and was thinking it would be nice then I saw it and nearly drooled rainbow gorgeousness. Sorry for my enthusiasm but the update made it spit and polished and I love it! The elevator was amazing I just I have no words to say how awesome it was. The teleporting ruins the work to fight through to your goal and new boss with the double bladed hands was exquisite but make him a bigger challenge. The new level made me feel like I was actually feeling the whole alternate dimension ordeal but the gauntlet set with the elevator made me sad. I dislike those in games. Fighting an even amount of enemies to cool your thirst for the boss' death helps but too many enemies drains the feel of still wanting to beat the boss. Graphics are much much better than before on enemies but patch the areas so they match the enemy graphics. He sun coins yes are undoubtedly annoying so add a gauntlet series where you fit more more and more difficult enemies much like the elevator sequence to earn those coins quickly for those awesome and funny weapons. Also on a last note maybe, make a fourth ending something goofy that'll be secret to find but make you laugh like hell or get a few chuckles from it. You guys did an amazing job keep doing what your doing it's gorgeous.
Great but the balance is off
I first rated this at 5 stars. Then after the past free-mium update, I rated it at a 1 star. Now, it's back up but not not all the way. Here is why. I like the content that was added, specifically the elevator section and staircase sections but the balance is terrible there. Monsters become impossible to beat without the use of sun bombs, an added weapon that basically lets you pass a monster without fighting. I don't like the sun bombs at all, it's just giving people a cheat. The problem is that you have to use them near the end. The final boss took ten sun bombs and nearly ten minutes of hacking with the sword to finally beat. There was no way I could have beaten him without the cheat bombs since it would have taken several hundreds of hits to drop his life bar down, and that's using a fairly high end sword.
