Are there a lot of attacks? Variety in gameplay?

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.
