Milla Adventure! 1.20.6 Update Notes

We're ready to unleash the next update that makes some noteworthy graphical improvements and adds an Adventure mode for Milla. Let's see how this goes!

If you would like to keep playing the original version of the game with only Lilac and Carol's Adventure modes, select "1.20.4 - Right before the Milla Adventure update" in the BETAS tab. (Right-click Freedom Planet in your Library and select Properties.)

The following is a compilation of all of the most significant changes between the last public release and this one.

General:

- Milla is now available to play in Adventure mode. She has several new cutscenes in addition to an altered ending sequence to accommodate the fact that she's the one fighting Brevon.
- Because of Milla being playable in Adventure mode, it now has an identical character selection screen as Classic mode once she has been unlocked.
- In Final Dreadnought 3, the stage ends for Milla when she crosses under the tube where the Kingdom Stone was, instead of the right side of the room. This is to accommodate for the cutscene that now takes place here in Adventure mode and will likely result in faster clear times (by less than a second, but still notable).
- Milla no longer has to deal with the crosshairs in the red hallway before the final boss.
- The required crystals for the Gem Hoarder achievement has been lowered from 7000 to 6000.
- The dialog cuts from the Wii U version have been carried over. Only the cutscene break between Relic Maze and Fortune Night is affected, plus one line after Fortune Night. See "Adventure Mode dialog cuts" for details.

Tweaks:
- Improved the shading on characters and enemies that were lacking it including Mayor Zao, Aqua Tunnel's boss and various enemies.
- In Milla's cutscene before Relic Maze, it's no longer possible for her to get a 1up by collecting the crystals she runs over. The crystals still count towards your total crystal count, however.
- In the intro cutscene after Brevon says "My turn," the frequency of his blade noises has been reduced a bit.
- The player now regenerates life during the Battle Glacier schmup on Easy and Casual.

Fixes:
- Carol's hitboxes on her attacks would sometimes not register.
- In Fortune Night as Carol, pausing the game in the area between defeating the midboss and entering the mall would make the music fade out indefinitely.
- In Final Dreadnought 3, the end boss's hitbox would linger after death, meaning that players with a fire shield would repeatedly hear the hit sound if they overlapped the hitbox during the cutscene.
- The game could be paused during the score tally in Final Dreadnought 4 as Milla, causing the results screen to glitch out.
- Pausing and selecting Next Stage during the cutscene where the heroes talk to Gong in Shang Tu Palace would make the music in Jade Creek fail to load.
- Pausing and select Skip Scene in the cutscene where Lilac is being healed in Shang Tu Palace would cause the invincibility music to play in Pangu Lagoon instead of the normal stage theme.
- Exiting a stage during Milla's Super Shield Burst would make other characters unable to climb ladders until she was either selected again or the game was restarted.
- Death counter on the file select screen has been increased to allow up to four digits instead of two.
- Patched up all the holes in the ceiling in Trap Hideout.
- In Fortune Night, rolling arches in the first section would sometimes make it impossible for Milla to land on the ground when touched during her hover move.
- Dragon Valley's score tally now properly activates if you somehow skip the end boss.

Adventure Mode dialog cuts:
- The treehouse movie scene has been shortened significantly for Lilac and Carol. (Unessential filler)
- The "space cooties" dialog where Lilac explains the origin of dragons has been cut. It now simply jumps to Carol's question about why aliens are interested in Avalice. (Unnecessary exposition since Zao basically says the same stuff later on)
- Torque's tent scene now fades out when the girls do their victory animation. (Torque's request to keep their mission a secret never comes into play during the story. The rest is unessential filler)
- In the Zao dinner scene, removed Lilac's comment on how Milla and Carol both agree on something for once. (References an event in the story that was cut early in development)

“Freedom Planet is a criminally underrated game and a shining example of just how good a retro platformer can feel even in 2015...”
4.5/5 – PC Mag

As someone who grew up with Sonic, there is no closer game that recaptures the tricky platforming, the constant mixup of level/game mechanics and wanting to go as fast as possible of the original Sonic 1,2 and Sonic 3&K, than Freedom Planet.

To describe it simply, it's old school Sonic mixed with the cartoonishness of Stephen Universe with some damned tough bosses. Tough but conquerable in a Dark Souls sense - provided you can figure tactics around a boss.

Wildcat with a Motorcycle, who can complain?

A fan of the original Sonic games? Want similar gameplay, but with a little more actual story?

Then play Freedom Planet. There's more to do than just run all day! And more to play! Like seriously, great old-school graphics, but with stuff you just didn't get back then.

The Stage 8 boss can combo you like it's a pro Smash Bros. Melee player on crack cocaine, resulting in many lives to be lost and many Game Overs to be had. This ♥♥♥♥face can go shove a rusted pole up its ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ until it comes out the other side and it can then go burn in hell. It would save everyone a lot of trouble if it did that.
11/10 would have to buy replacement keyboard and mouse again over a game about a furrys wet dream.

[EDIT]: Finally beat it after about 6-7 Game Overs to find that this little ♥♥♥♥ is only a Mid-Boss. Yes, a MID-BOSS!!! The actual boss of the level is miles easier than this guy but they were still a challenge. Oh and btw, THIS GUY APPEARS AGAIN LATER AS WELL!! Ok, he is easier than this first time, but he did manage to take many of my lives again...

I went into this game thinking it was "pretty good" from what I've heard about it. Definitely liked the soundtrack from what little I heard before playing. So, I decided to wait for a little while until the Summer Sale came around.

After playing… I can't get this game out of my head. The music, the levels, the bosses–heck, even the dialogue in the game, as much as some people might consider it a negative (personally, I found it a bit charming for all but some of the bits at the end of the game).

Never was one for 2D platformers when I was growing up, and I've spent a lot more time playing 3D platformers over the span of my life. In spite of all that, I feel as though *I* can understand the love and care that went into this game from everyone at GalaxyTrail. A level of adoration that extends far beyond "an ascended Sonic fangame", and I'm not talking about similarities to other Sega Genesis games.

In short, despite my first run only bringing me up to four hours of total game time, I knew then that this is easily one of my favorite games of all time. It's not something I could have possibly known just from the music, just from other people's gameplay… This game is truly something that has to be experienced.

I give this game nothing less than my wholehearted praise, so much so that, if I had known how much I'd love this, I'd have paid full price for the game. So, instead, I want to buy the soundtrack and a t-shirt to make up for it as I eagerly wait for the sequel. :p

If you enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog, get this game.
If you enjoy platformers, get this game.
If you enjoy both, REALLY get this game.
If you don't enjoy either, still consider getting this game.
For the record, I enjoy both.

I have a ton of fun playing Freedom Planet. In fact, I was going to speedrun it until real life got in the way. The game has perfect controls and mechanics in general, at least in my opinion. There are lots and lots of movement options. In fact, each of the moves that the game gives you can be used in several different ways that the average player probably would not have considered in order to gain more speed, gain more height, or do more damage. There are currently three characters to choose from, and they do not all share the same pool of stages, meaning that the game has a great amount of replayability. On top of that, you can go and try to improve your times for each individual stage, if you're into that sort of thing.

If I HAD to find a negative, it's probably that the game can drop your input on extremely rare situations. However, I have experienced this with practically every other platformer that I've played (Super Meat Boy, classic Mario games, etc.), so at this point I basically consider it a standard flaw of the platformer genre in general. It's really not a big deal at all, though, and it hardly ever happens. Heck, I didn't even notice it once on my initial playthrough of the game.

So yeah, I would definitely consider Freedom Planet as one of the hidden gems of indie games, and I would highly recommend it to anyone, even if you're not necessarily big into the genre. Hyped for Freedom Planet 2 also.

A truly fantastic indie game. Don't let the looks fool you, it's much more than a "sonic clone". It's less speed oriented and puts more focus on combat and exploration.

Pros:
-Long stages (approx 20 minutes each if you explore)
-3 characters to choose from
-Graphics (Stunning, looks as if the game was pulled straight from SEGA Genesis)
-Music
-Lord Brevon (the character as a whole, including voice acting which was superb)
-Voice Acting
-Amazing boss fights (very "Contra" like)
-Smooth controls and performance
-Nostalgia

Cons:

-The story - it's a mix of your regular "hero vs the evil guy" plot with some humor and occassional darker moments, which were actually my favourite. I would not say the story is completely bad, but some of the cutscenes were extremely cheesy and sometimes they would drag on for over 10 minutes, which for me is too long. HOWEVER, there is a classic mode if you don't care about the story and overall the plot is not a disaster at all. I would call it okay.

-Difficulty spikes - the game flows pretty well in terms of difficulty until you reach the last stage. The difficulty spikes when encountering some of the late game bosses were very much unexpected. I would not like the developers to nerf the bosses because they are awesome the way they are, but perhaps the difficulty should build up more slowly in the sequel.

---
Would I say it's better than Sonic series? No, not really. Is it better than some of the titles in the Sonic series though? Definitely. I'd give the game 8/10.

Freedom Planet might be my all time favorite indie game of all time right now. This game's gameplay reminds me of the Sonic the Hedgehog games with it's gameplay and Gunstar Heroes with it's amazing boss fights and which are games that I love on the Sega Genesis. The gameplay is really solid and the best thing about this game is how fast paced it is. The story to this game is great, the story has moments where it can be light hearted to dark.The soundtrack to this game is one of the best I have ever heard. The music really reminds me and captures that essence of games back around the late 1990's era of gaming. From outstanding jams to Jade Creek, Fortune Night, Relic Maze, Thermal Base, and my personal favorite Dragon Valley. I really recommend this game to everyone. Just play it you won't be disappointed.

You might have heard this a thousand, or for the first time, but It is so similar to Classic Sonic but like not in a way. First It has an awesome story, I REALLY like the characters, and great gameplay. I'd give it a 9/10
