Game Designer's Opinion
I really enjoy the simplicity of the controls and how effective they can be. The challenge is also well balanced if a little hard. My concern though is in regards to the collisions. Too many times I am in a situation where I have no move before, during, and after a confrontation. I am mostly referring to the snake type enemies. I understand that you must make the last areas challenging... but a nearly impossible situation is more likely to generate negative and hateful reviews than a well thought out and planned end boss situation.
Also I felt this was worth mentioning... I bought this game and I am almost finished, minus the near impossible situation. A game near finished in less than a day... NOT good value
First off, i'm very glad that a game this good is this cheap and doesn't have inn-app purchases. It is a full game, and a very good one.
Savant is an amazing musician and you play as him, attacking enemies to the tune of awesome savant songs. The game is VERY hard which is my only complaint but it's the good kind of difficult. It's a load of fun.
Brilliant but bug found
I recently came across a bug that caused the "shooting stick" or whatever it's called to become stuck facing diagonally up and to the right
other than that the game is amazing
