I just love everything about this game, graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack has some really nice themes and the mouse-based gameplay is awesome. The story is basic but the characters alone are likable and add a lot to the fun.

Only bad point is the length, even with the other characters and secrets to find you can see it all quite fast.

Very Fun but very very short game. I would not pay too much for it just because it is one of the shortest games I have played an a long time. Old school vide, good music. No controller support that I am aware of and since I am a key board masher it killed my hands..but it was short so it didn't kill them too bad.

First off, this is a very accessible game and is a blast to play. You just click to attack and dash/jump/kick. The environments and enemies are well-designed. The boss battles are the highlight of the game, but they can be a pain.

Like all good boss battles, there are certain patterns that you need to figure out rather than just button-mashing. However, the game actually punishes you for not getting it right away. You could be doing well in the level, fail to figure out the boss pattern quick enough, die, and if you "continue" in any way, it reloads from the nearest checkpoint, rendering it nearly impossible to avoid a "D" grade. While it makes sense for the score to reset after death, there should also be the option to restart a level from the beginning for players to "redeem themselves" in that particular level. You could just do a second playthrough, but the sole incentive of beating high scores isn't enough motivation imo to play through this game more than once. Might be different if this game had achievements however.

Apart from this minor complaint, there is little else wrong with the game. I would recommend it for everything it does well -- the fun of beating things up, the music, graphics, and the barely comprehensible but awesome sounding story. If you enjoyed the demo, then you wouldn't be doing yourself a disservice to buy this game.
