I'm putting this here on the off chance that the developers will see it. There are some small edits from the other version. The Sphinx Boss
ruined the game for me! It is incredibly tedious to fight, for me, it just sucked all the fun out of the game. Fighting for a few seconds, dying, reloading over and over and over and over again until finally, you kill it... and then what? I'm pretty sure I spent more time in the loading screens than I did fighting it. For me, the game was ruined at that point. The game had just wasted a huge amount of my time and to add insult to injury, had given me nothing for it. Not that a bunch of stars or whatever would make up for the process I'd just had to go through. I ended up finishing the game as a matter of course but after that, it was just a slog. Hell, even the final boss was a cake walk compared to the Sphinx.
I don't know, I guess you might be able to tweak the fight to make it less tedious. Like maybe remove those lightning enemies, is it even possible to dodge their fire when there is no cover around? Maybe open up the area more? The final boss was much more manageable because of the space I had to maneuver.
Anyway, My point is, I was really enjoying this game until the Sphinx boss. It just left a bitter experience in my mind it and past that point, all the little annoyances that I'd been willing to overlook up to that point suddenly became huge problems that reminded me of that time.
Totally agree. This was the low point of the game for me. I really liked it up to this point though
