    Since there's no thread for this already... Anyone playing this? It's genuinely excellent. It's Meat Boy with a sprinkling of Shovel Knight and Rayman Origins for my money. It controls brilliantly, the level design is spectacular, there's a ton of secrets, a nice little story and a great soundtrack.

    Plenty of content too - it should take roughly 8 hours to beat on first playthrough and then there's at least double the amount of content again in bonus stages.

    So far I've cleared the first 2 stages, and the first bonus stage. Working my way through stage 3 now.

    I'd like to. Ideally I'd get it on PS4 but it'd be perfect for Switch for when the TV is taken.

    Just got my switch back, sooo I've bought this. Looks great. Will try it later after some MHW.

    I got this on Switch last night and am on Chapter 3 now.

    It's great. Each screen is a lovely little puzzle. Highly recommended for anyone who likes a bit of platforming. Worth mentioning it is by the team that made Towerfall and had the same perfect feel to the controls.

    Only reason I am not playing it right now is because I have thumb ache from hammering the jump button!

    One other thing, it is hard but not too hard. I am a very average gamer with 40-something reactions and am coping OK. There are remixes of the levels and collectables for the sadists, but normal people can still progress (so far...)

    Was a big fan of Daphne and Celeste back in the day, so interested to see what she does solo

    That's good to hear. You've just described me on a good day. :)

    Definitely looking to pick this up after all the rave reviews. How much is it on the Switch?

    Just came in here to make sure someone had covered this gag already. Nice work!

    Put that tune on a South London Pub jukebox back in the day. Wasn’t warmly received...

    My 11 year old self and my bro once put Spice Girls on in a sleepy East Devon pub at lunch. Cleared the place of codgers in 20 minutes: the song finished and they took that bloody long to get up to go.

    On to chapter 5 with over 50 strawberries and 1 bonus level unlocked. Reminds me of Cloudberry Kingdom as being bold as brass pays dividends

    Cracking so far.

    I'm on chapter 6 now, got just over 100 strawberries and found all the bonus tapes so far as I've gone back in after beating each level to find them. 4 Crystal hearts so far and 1 regular from the first B-Side.

    It's a magnificent game. Just brilliantly designed.
  • Deleted user 28 January 2018 20:59:49
    Think I'm on chapter 3. Only around 15 strawberries but I've not been actively trying to get them. Smashing game though so far.

    Worth going for the ones you see IMO. No real reward, but they're some of the cleverest platforming challenges.

    @Duffking are you playing on the Switch? If so, how does it feel to control in handheld..
  • Deleted user 28 January 2018 21:48:00
    It's fine handheld on the switch. That's all I've played it as.

    It's fine, I've actually used the analogue more than the d-pad but I think it's fine with both.

    @CompetitiveDad I've got to chapter 4 so far on switch and played mainly handheld.. no issues at all. I quite like the dpad how it is as I find it so much easier than using that analogue sticks, more certainly as to what directions I'm pressing.

    Nnnngh, it looks really good.

    Aren't diagonals difficult on the joycon's d-pad?

    I didn't find them too hard when I tried it out, but I've been using the analogues anyway most of the time.

    :D

    I started it up earlier just to have a little peak, I turned it straight off though as I'm working away for a few days from tomorrow so want to save it for the hotel room.

    Can't wait to get stuck in.

    Spoilers of course for all sorts of stages in this game from beginning to end, but I finished the regular stages of this the other day and I cut together some of my Switch captures. In case anyone's on the fence for this game and wants to see some of the various challenges. Most of these are the optional ones for berries.
