Hey everyone, basically the topic. Just wondering how much there actually is to the gameplay of this game, as I've heard that the main character only has a very small amount of attacks.

It's more of an old-school platformer than a modern fighting game with 50 combos or something. Think Castlevania. You basically have your sword, a few special moves with your sword, a long range special attack, and one magic spell. The levels have different vibes, and there are some moments of creative platforming, though...and there's one bit that mixes up the gameplay a bit (in the same way that the minigames in Lollipop Chainsaw and Shadows of the Damned did). Overall, it's a pretty short but enjoyable platformer.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I'll give it a little more thought, but I'm leaning towards buying it.

Try the demo first but honestly I say it's a must-buy and at $10 it's a steal.

Really like the retro side-scrolling vibe it has. Brings you back to the days of NES/Sega.

Yep...namely the sidescrolling flying shooter stages.
