You can see the gameplay via this handy trailer (right), and make no mistake… Messhof is not kidding around when he states “I make video games. Most of them are pretty hard.” Both versions of this game reward serious arcade game skills, and woe unto you if your Mario-shit* skills are lacking.
Messhof recommends using a game pad, and I heartily agree. I use a wired XBox 360 controller for my game-pad** and that seemed to make all the difference in the world.
*The accepted term around Casa del Mono for any gameplay that’s a taxing combination of run/jump/obstacle.
**Which is surprisingly agile enough to play X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter with.
