Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'm awful and terrible because I didn't know? Or was she saying YOU'RE awful and terrible?

    Both. And it's not so much as for not knowing, but not doing.

    Oh and when you're choosing a weapon, Spur will make fighting easier, and Snake will make the endgame platforming less rapish.

    Spur is the shit. I'm not a fan of the Nemesis much. You don't really have enough time to sit there and repeat shots before having to move and dodge something. Much rather aim well, take my one shot, and focus on not getting hit.

    Plus, the Whimsical Star or whatever it is called... way more useful than it would seem.
    Last Cave, if you're on the hard mode type, it pretty much lets you bypass having to boost under the Presses.

    I have no honor, but I have no shame either.

    Edit - And I totally just beat the game again like 2 minutes ago. :3

    How do you get this so called Hard Mode? Is it a legitimately good and challenging hard mode? (Think Shadow of the Colossus)

    This is the really retarded part of the "get the best ending" sequence, so I'm gonna elect to leave it unspoilered:

    Nope, if you got the Booster v0.8 by checking on Prof. Booster after he falls you done fucked up. You have to make the (slightly tricky) jump across the chasm and leave the area without speaking to him or getting the Booster.

    (more details)
    You get the Booster v2.0 later by doing this, which just doesn't make any goddamn sense but whatever!

    A book later gives a very very vague hint that says he needs time to upgrade the Booster from v0.8 to 2.0. I guess the implication is that you need to leave him alone when he falls to his death or something!

    Which brings us back to what I said earlier. You should have the CHOICE to take the booster from him or not, with him explaining he's trying to improve it, and also be able to climb back up without it.

    I'm willing to forgive it because it's toying with a trope. Booster survives just long enough to help you before dying, but if you just ignore him, he loses the opportunity to barely survive long enough to help you and ends up living.

    Wait, you can? Because I didn't want to take it. I made the jump the first time, and came back around after hitting the Labyrinth shop, but fell. Thinking I couldn't get back up without it, I (very angrily) took the Booster v0.8.

    E: D'oh, misread that. Yeah, I'm not too happy about that. I suppose it's nothing more than a minor annoyance, but a tiny little accident like that shouldn't change the entire ending.

    Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet (end game spoilers)!
    I kept trying to get through Sacred Ground and normally couldn't make it past the spikey room (the first one). Then I did. Awesome! Onto the next room, with falling blocks and angels oh fuck. But it wasn't too bad. Third room was where I started to get fucked. Every time an angel fell into spikes to die I was made because I had little health going into things. Finally made it to the Big Press boss, and was making okay progress... 'til an angel killed me. D:

    Round two on Big Press boss I win. Savvy. I make it to Ballos and beat his first form unharmed. I thought that was pretty great. Then I hear a sound after he disappears, and before I can react he turns into a big rock and crushes me. D:

    Round three! I get to Ballos yet again and avoid his death stomp entrance for his second form. I defeat it (after a long time; imagine being able to land next to his eye and shoot it with the Spur for MASSIVE DAMAGE) and decide to use my health pot. I may as well, just to get a hold of the next fight right? Well I get hit twice right away by his swirling eye things, but beat that form rather quickly. Then I see platforms around the room. And then notice spikes are forming on the ground. Up I go.

    I didn't have a CLUE on what to do so I shoot rapidly. I remember I have level 2 missiles after a bit and start chugging them into Ballos. Down to one hit. By some miracle, I score enough missile hits and he's dead.

    The ending was pretty great. :3

    And my time was 15:51. D:

    I got stuck on that boss the first time I played the game. He's a real son of a bitch, just dodge around until he stops and then use the level 3 sword on his innards. Works like a charm.

    Use the sword, level 2 does the most damage per second. The first time I fought him I tried pretty much every other weapon before I tried the sword, which took him apart pretty fast.
