Use the $15 to get Shovel Knight, a game that will last 10 times longer and had much more replayability then this.
I finished it in 2 hours, mainly because the 1 hit kill mechanic favors just rushing in and cheesing bosses in the first 10 seconds when their first few moves are super predictable.
After you face the first 4 bosses that the demo contains, you've already seen nearly everything the game has to offer in terms of mechanics. It's a bit sad considering there are 20 bosses.
You'll die a bunch of times on some bosses but only because the game forces you to stand still while aiming and shooting your arrow, like in the old Resident Evil games, and this makes it very frustrating in a fast 2D action game, especially when the bosses are very agile and jumpy, leading to a ton of cheap deaths.
Nice proof of concept, lousy game. Also a shameful use of the "Souls" in the title to make it seem like this is a 2D Dark Souls, nope, since all the bosses here are all basically variations on Bed of Chaos.… Expand
