I've tried to play this 3 times and just can get myself to like it rather then a metroidvania this felt more like a game for speed runners. most of the reviews say its hard and comparing it to Dark souls but most of the difficulty would disappear if the controls where tighter. As is the controls are really sloppy and annoying and jumping is really floaty and there are moves that have the same button inputs thus causing action that you didn't mean to do Or ones you have difficulty doing quickly again. (4/10 - if your persistent)

I wanted to like this game but it's SO poorly designed the bad outweight the good, by a LOT

A platformer game that fails really hard at being a platformer. The controls are bad and unresponsive which often makes you fall into a pit of insta-kill spikes. The level design sometimes forces you to take damage which leaves you at a disadvantage with the few save locations they
have scattered around the map.

I got stuck in an area forever before giving in and asking the all-powerful internet what to do next and I learned that there were 4 switches I need to press in an area to open a gate, 1 of which is hidden inside a totaly ordinary wall with no collision that you wouldn't know was needed unless you were told so. After that hell I moved on to the VERY next area where my progression is stumped again. This is bad game design and in no way player error. I wish it was player error that way I could at least progress, but I'm stuck until I find the next wall with no collision or whatever the hell I need to do now.

This game is okay for maybe 30 minutes to an hour before it becomes a chore to get to the next save location before climbing another platform hell. Really not worth the price at all

This game looked appealing from the store page, but the controls are frustrating to the point of making the game almost unplayable to me. For a game with a similar premise where the controls are actually responsive, check out Rabi-Ribi instead.

EDIT To expand on the problems a bit after spending a bit longer with the game:

The problem is the mechanics of the controls. In particular:

First, when in an attack animation, including after releasing the attack button for most of a second, the character can't turn around, and the game ignores any attempt to do so. This means that attempts to attack, stop attacking, and turn around, and then attack again often result in the second attack going the wrong direction because the directional input wasn't accepted.

Second, the character doesn't stop moving in the air when you release the directional input. You can turn them around by pressing the opposite direction, but the only way to jump off a platform and fall straight down onto one directly below is to do an incredibly awkward zig-zag, pressing left and right repeatedly all the way down. This mechanic alone makes the platforming sections of the game way harder than they need to be.

Either of these flaws taken alone would seriously reduce the enjoyability of the game, but taken together they are a total deal-breaker. They're both awful design choices for a platformer, and they go directly against the expectations set by nearly every other game in the genre.

Beyond the controls themselves, the game has a few other more forgivable flaws. For example, it lacks any "continue" or "reload from checkpoint" facility. In a game where death is frequent and expected, going through the extra two or three screens to load your save game from the title screen every time gets annoying quickly. Also, as other reviews have noted, the weapon-switching system is based on random pick-ups that essentially erase your current weapon, many of them in central areas. This often creates annoying avoid-the-powerup puzzles when you are simply trying to explore but don't want to lose your current weapon.

1. Once I saw people comparing this to the ultimate meme game, Dark Souls, I knew that was a bad sign.

2. I expected this game to be difficult and it is, but it's artificial difficulty. It's a game with average difficulty that's boosted to very difficult because of the horrible controls.

3. I don't mind chinese hentais (that's chinese for cartoons) but this is just a bit too cringy for me. I understand the style they were going for and they did a good job of it, but it just doesn't appeal to me. That's not a critique of the game, I just didn't like it.

Overall: I wanted to like this game but it's just not fun. I like difficult games but this just sucks. Horrible controls, even worse mechanics... I just don't see any appeal in it. $10 is way too much for this nonsense. The $5 I paid for it was too much. Don't buy this, there are way more challenging yet fun games out there that are worth the money.

Disappointed with DARK SOULS III in general and feeling it pandered too much (and Bandai Namco support pandered to little when prompted to return my ability to play online for some reason), I find Bunny Must Die! Chelsea and the 7 Devils is a better sequel.

This is possibly the worst Metroidvania I've ever played. Doesn't help that the voices get grating and the controls are beyond stiff. If you desperately want a bunny themed Metroidvania I recommend you get Rabi-Ribi instead. That game's controls at least worked.
Edit:I just beat it and the ending is not satisfying if you don't collect 7 hourglasses. I'm glad I don't have to suffer through this piece of ♥♥♥♥ any longer. Do Not Buy This Game. If a friend gifts it to you they are a bad friend.

The closest thing to playing a Metroid game where Samus Aran is dressed in a bunny suit.

It's also less offensive than Metroid: Other M.

So what does this game offer? Well, let me list them off:
It's an excellent and unique Metroidvania. It has hilarious dialogue with the bosses. And also it has plenty of moments to make you go "What the heck?!". Oh yeah, and the soundtrack? It's awesome.
This game will challenge you. And it will also make you laugh.

The Year is 1999X. Thermomewclear power: a modern scientific marvel that allows free clean energy for all of bunnykind. This safe and renewable energy was the perfect solution, until the Thermomewclear Power Plant blew up and cursed poor Bunny with a pair cat ears. Still retaining her long lapine ears as well, she is vexed by the fact that no one can tell if she is a rabbit or a cat. She even went as far as to seek the aid of a wise old bunny, but unfortunately he was brutally murdered by a rampaging bull and has left Bunny stranded in the cave of the 7 devils. If you think sounds mightily effed up, you are probably right, but no matter. It is time for Bunny to set forth and kick some devilish ♥♥♥!

Bunny Must Die! Chelsea and the 7 Devils is a classic example of the tried and true Metroidvania formula. It was created pretty much singlehandedly by Murasame of Platine Dispositif (aside from voicework), and like his other works the game can be punishingly hard at times. The original release was only in Japan, with 4:3 graphics and a midi-ish soundtrack. However this localization offers many enhancements over the original release, such as new widescreen graphics coded in by Murasame, a wild soundtrack arrangement by Woofle, and a fresh English translation.

When starting BMD the first thing you'll notice is the lush hand-drawn anime graphics. The next thing you'll notice is that you can't walk to the right. You must first walk to the left a few steps to collect "The Gears of The Past" to be able to turn around. This quirky bit of humor quite obviously pokes fun at the general mechanics of the Metroidvania genre, and trust me when I say that a whole lot more will be lampooned before you finish the game. The game even pokes fun at you (and then throws a viciously hard boss your way) for sequence breaking. Yes, the large-foreheaded first boss lady will fly off the handle if you skip her.

Now despite the amusing jokes and cliches blown out of proportion, the gameplay in Bunny Must Die is your standard Metroidvania exploration with plenty of Castlevania-style combat. You also gain the ability to bend time to your will, and that opens a whole new dimension in gameplay and puzzle solving. I should note though that no matter how good you are at this sort of game, you WILL die often. Just go into this adventure knowing that fact and you will have a good time. The way we learn is by making mistakes, right? And sometimes being repeatedly run over by a turret-tank while it fires laser beams up your ♥♥♥♥ is a learning experience too.

Rockin' Android has definitely gone all-out in the process of making Bunny Must Die a breakout title for the western world. They have go so far as to give the options to use the original graphical mode and soundtrack, despite the overhaul that is provided by default. This speaks volumes of their dedication to customer satisfaction, and to their preservation of the original product's values. Just as with the Gundemonium Collection, Rockin' Android has taken an already awesome property and further polished it to gleam like a diamond and stand out on it's own in the rough sea of indie games.

So to recap: Bunny Must Die! Chelsea and the 7 Devils offers frenetic platforming, Metroidvania-inspired exploration, kickass brutal bosses, a rocking re-arranged soundtrack, a superbly localized and hilarious story, a cute as heck main character, a super secret hidden character with a second playthrough, and tight controls that ensure that if you screw up, it's your own damn fault. What the heck are you waiting for? Bust out your favorite gamepad, buy the game, and kick some demonic patootie! Bunny's fate depends on YOU!

This game is a rage game, as many others have said, but what many others haven't said is some of the rage comes from some very poor coding when it comes to movement - specifically turning back and forth and jumping. If you haven't completed all animation sequences down to the pixel, you are NOT allowed to jump or turn. That means you can't let go of the left button and immediately hold down right and expect to turn. You won't. In fact, if you immediately press right after holding left, the game may sometimes glitch and keep making you walk left.
Same thing with jumping. If your character is, for any reason, in the middle of standard movement - you will NOT be able to jump. Yes, that does mean that if you are being pushed forward by an enemy, you CANNOT JUMP. In certain situations this very much seems to be a bug. Now, I admit, I'm not the best player, but 1 to 2 out of every 5 deaths feels like I was cheated.

This is a cute game, though, and if you are able to drop a gamepad and walk away from a cheated death, then you can deal with this game.

This game is very much like Super Metroid and Cave Story with some bullet hell action thrown in. The movement is fast and the controls are really sharp (takes a bit to get used to at first) but works well since it has some pretty hardcore platforming challenges. The sound track is amazingly well done.

I was searching through the Greenlight section for games and this game stuck out to me, decided to buy it and give it a chance and I have no regret on it at all. The game is very good in my opinion and honestly, made me think I was playing a type of Metroid game, has quite a lot of similarities with Metroid, achievements/challenges for beating the game in a certain time with having all items collected, items/health to be found scattered in obvious and secret areas, bosses that are needed to beat to obtain items to open the next path, even a different suit that is purple and makes you stronger and take less damage, just like the Gravity Suit. When I had gone a few rooms to the right, I instanly thought of a similarity to Brinstar on Metroid Zero Mission, Dark King's Lair reminded me of the depths of Norfair from Zero Mission and there is even one dungeon further on in the game that will reminded you of Metroid games and Tourain (you'll know when you get there.) But enough about comparing this to Metroid, this game is hard at times as some of the bosses can be tricky the first time you fight them and you will need some quick reflixes on certain areas of the game. Overall it's not bad at all, didn't think it would be as enjoyable as it is. Controls weren't hard to get used to, lots of items to collect, soundtrack was done pretty good, nice boss battles that can be difficult or easy depending on how you go about the game and what items you have, another character to play as once you beat the game with her own story as well. Achievements in this game are quite the challenge on some of them, but that's what makes the game better, so if you're the type of person who likes challenges or going for harder achievements like me, then this will be perfect for you. I will say though, this game is going to bring back the older days with me, going back to speed runs which I haven't done in a long time. Amazing game, very enjoyable and very satisfied with my purchase.

Lots of enemies, tough boss battles, many areas to explore, many items/upgrades to be found, two playable characters and an awesome soundtrack.

This is one of the hardest games I've ever played.
It might be quite frustrating to clear some areas/bosses but overall it's a great game.
I recommend this for those who enjoy action-platformer games like Metroid and Castlevania.

A very good metroidvania game. Don't turn it down if you don't like the anime style, there's more onto it. Some may find it difficult.

Story: 7/10
Not the focus of the game, but the characters are interesting. The dialogues are funny. The ending was a big surprise!

Gameplay: 10/10
Fast paced. Controls very well, with keyboard or with the controller. Time control is a very good feature that works well. So many secrets too! You'll have to play a lot if you want to get them all. Some are required to finish the game, and even more to speedrun it, so it's a bad thing if you don't like hunting them.

Graphics and Design: 9/10
Beautiful pixelated graphics, the enemies and bosses look awesome.

Music: 8/10
You can choose between arranged and original versions. Not great, but not bad soundtracks, but what matters is that they fit nicely. Just like in GundeadliGne, other game by Platine Dispositif also translated and published by Rockin' Android.

10/10 if you like the fast paced gameplay and hunting secrets.
8/10 for the average person.
6/10 for someone who would turn it down because of the anime style.

This game's a Metroidvania title, and it's a pretty solid one. The bosses are humorous and simultaniously challenging, and there's a pretty wide amount of weapons to use.

Honestly, not much to say about this game other than if you like games like Super Metroid, Megaman or Castlevania, you'll enjoy this one.
