Haruneko strikes again!!
Just as with Akane the Kunoichi, Amazing Princess Sarah feels and plays like a platformer from the glorious 16bit era from the early 1990s. This means, it keeps its gameplay simple yet challenging and I mean really challenging, hard-unforgiving challenging. Additionally to a handfull of levels ever increasing in difficulty, there are several new game plus modes that alter gameplay in interesting ways and changing up the flow of the game.
It may not be a master piece but it is more that worth its price of admission!

Amazing Princess Sarah is a well made platformer with a pretty good difficulty curve. Sarah fights enemies the Super Mario Bros. 2 way: you mainly kill your enemies by picking up items -- or already slain enemies -- and throwing them at your foes. If you time it well, you can get cascade reactions where you kill multiple foes with a single throw.

The (forgettable) story is told without words through simple cutscenes. The same style is used to introduce the bosses.

Where Sarah is frustrating, is in the level design. Even for a game in the platformer genre, there is a LOT of backtracking here as you mainly fight your way to a switch, flip it, then backtrack to a previously locked wall/passage and continue.
Enemies respawn throughout so you are always in danger, luckily save points occur frequent and are mostly well placed so you don't have to repeat particularly difficult sections too often.
Most annoyingly, flying enemies and enemy projectiles go through walls, and as you'll be spending a lot of time passing through narrow corridors next to other sections you've either already visited or will visit next, there are a lot of cheap hits as a result. Luckily there are also sections where you can just dodge or kill enemies without worrying about cheap hits too much.

Overall the experience is a good one. A well made game and worth the (low) price.

Great fun! Seriously!

I got this for about 1$ (Sale + sold Steam cards) and I have to say the full price would have been worth it as well.
I don't understand what other people are complaining about.

This game is a fairly hard old school Jump'n'Run Game but thanks to a lot of checkpoints totally okay to play, even for casual gamers. The character is based on her ability to pick up and throw knocked out enemies or other items. Similar to Super Mario Bros. 2 on NES.
The thing, depending on what you pick up it has different consequences. Throw an archer and it releases a bunch of arrows that hurt enemies. Throw a fire woman and it spawns a few flames. Throw a so called Fatty and it won't fly as far but it will do a lot of damage.
It's a simple but fun mechanic which makes a very engaging game that you can play casually in a few minutes per session or in big chunks of time.

Really don't understand the hate.

So if your are an achievement hunter i am not as a rule. But this is a pretty easy 100% you go through the game 7 different times but each time throws a twist at you.

You are drunk one time naked and helpless another time a vampire ect Platforming is done really well in fact you can be on a block while just one little pixel of your foot in touching it. Think of this game like castle vania with rpg elements trhowen in the mix. Each level you gain you gain a small ammount of health.

be warned though this game is actually pretty hard dont get me started on the bosses cant tell you how many times i wanted to throw my controller.

As long as you dont mind a challange you should buy this game.

Definitely not recommended. Somewhat ok for a single run, but then the game tries to artificially prolong it's life by forcing you to play it through seven friggin times, with escalating difficulty and other annoying effects. A lot of people have commended the game on it's music, but unfortunately, that did not work for me at all (sound effects, but no background music), so I can't say about that.

I recommend you rather go check out free Phoenotopia or Spud's Quest or Valdis Story: Abyssal City; or if you must torture yourself with difficult jumps on tiny platforms something like Life of Pixel or Love.
