    1. Think like smash bros in terms of dodging and landing on the ground after being kicked by pressing L.
    2. In terms of aiming, think like mouse and keyboard instead of console controls.
    3. Get a weapon that suits your taste, there are like 100 to choose from. Personally I like one with rapid fire, high knockback and lots of defense, like a +6 defense ball cannon.
    4. Play on highest difficulty, feel your toes curl inwards.

    It does indeed take a while to get into it, and even then it ends up not being a game for everyone. But give my advice a try.

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    I gave this game to my friend to try it out, even he said it sucked. I really don't get it. I absolutely loved it, it was such a different game, but very well made.

    Because it's a shooter/bullet hell kindaish type of game. Games in that genre are usually boring as heck. Add to that the ridiculous control scheme and you have yourself a 3/10 game. Now if it was an action adventure hack and slash ala God of War or Zelda, the game would've been a hit.

    Apart from the awkward controls, I loved this game.

    You just don't have any taste in games OP.

    What are you doing wrong? Maybe you're playing that game. Perhaps try...... another game? :creep:

    Seriously not every game is for everyone, i don't like all games (But i like this one) :ninja:

    Had this may been for consoles, was my only desire for this game, and maybe more stages or something. Still perhaps if this game get Switch port, got to buy it all over again, HD, 60FPS, More content! :D

    I also enjoyed the game a lot.
    Before Smash 4 was out I used to play this pretty often online.
    The problem with this game is the control scheme, but after I got used to it, it wasn't that bad.
    Especially the plot development with the ring was really great and the boss rush mode made a lot of sense.
    I gave it to a friend who didn't like it, probably because of the controls as he only played the first chapter.

    the control scheme is something that most people hate in the beginning, including me

    Controls may have upset lot of people cause it didn't match traditional shooting games like Resident evil 4. But i just use buttons to move and analog stick to aim, it was like playing with lefthanded mouse and keyboard :P

    I feel you on this one. I played Kid Icarus on NES and GB, and it was really fun. I chalk it up to older me having a different taste now.

    just really really not a fan of having to use the pen plus controls. its one or the other for me, and I prefer the controls all day long. Not a fan of touch screen games.
