Love it but controller is a must

One thing I like about this game is it’s retro feel - not that it’s choppy or unpolished or anything like that - quite the opposite - but that there’s no participation trophy and no way to just hack your way through it. It feels like an old school game to me in the sense that in order to be good you have to absolutely and completely master the controls and button timing in the way that you had to with older sega genesis or nes games. It takes practice and muscle memory as much as it takes strategy. Because of this, though, it’s almost impossible to get through the later stages without an mfi controller. I tried this game a long time ago actually and ended up deleting it long before finishing. I recently bought a controller and decided to try again and it made a huge difference in my appreciation for it.

Awesome! Just a few problems

I couldn’t put this game down! The story and its characters are very well done. The artwork is fantastic, simple and yet lively. I highly recommend buying the full version, because stopping at level 10 just doesn’t do this game justice, but if you want the full version, you should buy the destiny pack. If you get to the final boss but you’re at level... 33 or so, the Torken arena from the destiny pack lets you level up easily so it isn’t so hard to fight the final boss.

Now, I have two issues. The gold bounces so much I can barely collect any (especially the bean-shaped pieces worth 25 gold) which hurts if you use gold to regain HP. An even bigger problem is the flying enemies, like spirits and (spoiler) the final boss. Whenever I go to attack them, they back up so they’re always a certain distance away from me, like they’re not interested in attacking me. They only stop at the very edge of the level (often over a pit) and I fall off! It’s very frustrating and I’d like to see it fixed

“Revert game” button pops up over “play” button

I love this game except I am so mad. It isn’t aynching with the cloud, which doesn’t bug me except every now and then a message pops up that says “your cloud game is older than your local game, revert to cloud version?” And the revert button is in the same place the Play button is. So I’ll get a bunch of levels ahead, then I’m about to hit play and this warning pops up as I’m already hitting the play button. So then I revert and go back 10 levels (and each level is 12 games which have to be won in a row to get to the next plateau).

Who put the button for that warning over the play button? The accept button could be in a different place on the screen so I can dismiss it instead of accidentally hitting it!

I just sat there and waited for the warning. And waited. Decided it wasn’t going to warn me, and the very second I hit play, the warning popped up and I clicked the revert button and went back 6 levels that I worked a long time to get back to. I’m really upset. I love the game and it was worth the paid version but this is a ridiculous and easy to fix feature.
