I have a question. I noticed that after I defeated the bosses of the first two areas (I'm now in the third world), I can't go back and fight them again. This sucks because I had the volume turned down during the second boss fight, and I've heard the music is part of the experience.

Any clues on how to fight bosses again without starting a new game? Do I have to beat the game?

I'm not sure about how you can fight them again, but you can get the soundtrack from the official site.

I'm through the first 3 worlds and I'm really liking the game. Funny thing is, I don't really know why. It's certainly not breaking any new grounds but I guess it has just enough polish to keep me going.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Thanks for the tip on the soundtrack.

It does kind of suck that you can't replay the boss fights. I have found the boss fights to be highlights of the game, and the idea of starting a character from scratch on a different save slot just to play them "one more time" seems ridiculous. While overall I'd say the design of this game is just about perfect, but that is a very glaring oversight.

If anyone finds out a way to replay boss fights without starting from scratch, let me know.

Wow this game gets hard at the end. The last two worlds are pretty much full of instant deaths that have you falling into a pit as soon as you are hit by anything. A lot of frustration for me now and not the kind where I feel rewarded at the end. Slogging through world 5 but I don't know if I will make it to the end.

Yeah, if each level weren't 3-4 screens worth of levels and the only checkpoints are for beating each screen, it wouldn't be nearly as frustrating.

Yeah, I've given up after 5-2. The game just becomes trial and error with one hit kills all over the place. No longer fun. Oh well, I enjoyed most of what I played.

I found 5-1 the hardest. Those powerful axe guys, the two ambush rooms, and the numerous pits made for one frustrating level.

5-3 was pretty easy. The second "room" is a vertical one, so if you fall, you just land a floor below.

Keep at it. You're almost there!

I ended up getting it last night, and it really surprised me. The game is much more fun than I thought. Well worth the $30.

It does get really hard, but it's not that big a problem. I don't know WHY it suddenly gets so hard, but I didn't get it when Yoshi's Island DS got really hard all of a sudden.

The game could definitely be refined, but it's so "charming" to me that I can look past it. I'm looking forward to this dev's next game.

How long does it last? My sister is giving me her DS Lite seeing as she doesn't play it anymore. So I'm thinking rather then buying a few games to start off with and not giving all my games the proper love I'm going to keep my backlog down by only buying one game at a time and making sure I beat everything. Just want to make sure I'm getting my moneys worth though. So how many hours?

I found it to be a problem. I was enjoying the hell out of the game early on, then as it got harder still enjoying it....then it became Mega Man difficult with stupid pit traps and crap and I havnt touched it in 2 weeks.....

I agree. I gave up on the game during world 5. It just wasn't fun anymore because of the difficulty. I can't think of any other DS game I've played that got this difficult, it should have had an "easy" difficulty setting or something.

omg! finally FINALLY started playing today!!

I'm fashionably late to my own party! lol.

the action part is great, Henry man controls real tight so I like that.

not mind blowingly great tho... it's definitely no Ninja 5-0 or Drill Dozer.

the puzzle mode is freakin bootleg tho... but I only feel that way coz I take Tetris Attack as serious as I do Street Fighter.

still... it works well and accomplishes what it needs to. There's really no benefit in breaking the bottom screen anyways lol.

overall... I played thru the whole first world and definitely loving it all.

So far, I've played through the first world. Pretty damn fun. I keep forgetting about the lower screen until I see the red flashing on the bottom of the top screen, though. Working on that.

A bunch of concept art has recently been posted on Offworld. The art spans the whole game, so some might consider them a bit of a spoiler. Just fair warning. LINK

Also, I can only imagine that Evil Ben Franklin would have been an awesome adversary.

I wish this would go on sale for like $10-$15 already. I want to play this pretty badly, but not $30 badly. :bomb:

I finished today as well but I'll sort of disagree on difficulty. Some parts of the game **** you over for no reason at all except to piss you off like an old-school Mega Man game. I started dying a lot more late World 2 or early World 3 but stopped dying frequently early World 4. The final boss would have been very manageable except for one part...

u dont need a lot of projectile hits... you can jump off and shoot one or 2, and catch yourself back onto the wall easily,

furthermore dont forget... the bullets power up when u go into puzzle mode mid-trajectory. It's jus another one of the many useful tools that ppl overlook in the game.

I know that works with the bombs and boomerang but I didn't notice it working for the regular weapon. I beat the game already so tips aren't needed ;)

I had purchased all the upgrades and found all the missing Golden items before I completed it. I probably won't be playing through it again on the harder difficulty.
