I decided to quit the game at a point called "double jump" where you have to jump and teleport into a blue barrier to the left and then jump again before falling down and teleport to the right and then jump and teleport to the left into the blue barrier again and then again teleport to the right. There is an annoying bat flying around that follows you and tries to kill you as well as two ugly blob monsters on the ground. It's not that I don't know what to do (the puzzles are quite easy in this game), it's that I just can't pull off the "jump and teleport into blue barrier and make a second jump right away" move. I can only make it work once in a blue moon and in this part you have to do it twice in a row with a bat following you around. Apparently, most people have no problem with the controls but I keep confusing x and y in the worst moments and the controls feel completely random to me because sometimes I can make the jump work and sometimes not. The part I'm struggling with shouldn't take more than 5 seconds to complete but I died so many times that I unlocked 3 or 4 of those inane Steam achievements while trying and trying again, probably 20 times. I'd rather have a mental challenge than this "hit key at precise time" crap, it's not fun. I'm sure the game is very entertaining for people who enjoy platforming but it's not for me :/
genkicolleen: Gah! I'm stuck, too! >_< There's a scene where you either have to have split-second timing, or I'm doing something wrong :p You know, I should youtube it to see if I'm trying the right thing, thanks! haha
At least it was a very cheap game and I like the music but I'm not going to aggravate myself over this any further, platforming is just not my thing.
I also decided to uninstall Shattered Planet, still not giving up on Tiny Bang Story although I have no motivation to continue considering I can't make it past the very first scene with the "find the 20 million puzzle pieces" holdup that only a 3 year old can solve without going insane.
I'm looking forward to playing Technobabylon the day after tomorrow (release day) because I currently don't want to play any of the 60 games I have installed at the moment.
