"One reason, and one reason only, the controls."
I got this game a long time ago in a bundle, and in all honesty only really became the slightest bit interesting in it when I became a fan of Edmund Mcmillen’s work, and found out this was something that he worked on.
I tried playing this game once before, and I personally found it unbearable to play.
For one reason, and one reason only, the controls. They really aren’t that great, and I found it very difficult to try and get used to. Which in the end, I couldn’t. I gave up and I watched a let’s play instead, of the whole play through. Which is a shame because it looks like a decent game, and for people that don’t see the controls as a problem, it probably is.
A lot of people moan about this game and say it’s bad, and that it’s broken. Which in ways, I suppose it is. I just think that this game had a lot of potential.
There was talk of a sequel being made, but from what I have heard Mcmillen can’t get a hold of the programmer that worked on the game, so can’t really do much about anything.
Fellow people with OCD-tendencies, beware!
The achievements on this game are broken, even though they all have a 0.3% achieved rate, which shows that a very few may have cheated to get them. (I guess I don’t blame them if they are well and truly broken and steam won’t take them down)
All in all, this is one I wouldn’t recommend. Buy anything else with Edmund Mcmillen’s name on it. Anything, but this.
