Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20hello everyone welcome to my arcade mode1cc commentary for steel assault a gamethat came out about a week ago that ihave a review on my channel if you wantto check that out but in this video whati want to do is continue on and talkabout the game in even more detail andeven more depth because i will say whenit comes to reviewing games even thoughyou can get a really good sense of how aWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40game feels and game plays in the usualreview window andyou know understand the basics of whatthe game's asking and offering as far asa casual play through i do think thatyou don't really fully understand thegame and really fully get to know whereits strength and weaknesses are untilyou start doing really dedicated highWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00difficulty runs at least when it comesto arcade style genres because this iswhere you really start to pick up on thenuances and the small details thatyou're not gonna really get in aninitial casual play through this issomething that i feel a little bitcritical of when it comes to a lot ofreviews that you see these daysWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20especially youtube reviews where theecosystem is so time sensitive and okaythe game came out we need to come upwith a review the next day or the dayyou know before it even comes out withsome people um in the case of electricunderground that's pretty rare because idon't get advanced copies almost ever ithink this is one of the very fewadvanced copies i've ever gotten if notWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40the only advanced copy and that wasliterally a day in advance so not awhole lot of time to work on arcade modeclearbut what i'm getting at here is thatuntil you really fully go for these highdifficulty mode clears and uh all thatsort of thing i just don't think you canunderstand the game as wellso i'm hoping even thoughWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00there is a review of the game on thischannel you'll also continue to watchthis because i think you're going tolearn a lot because i learned a lotduring the arcade grind here so nowlet's actually talk about the gameplay alittle bitso stage one i felt okay talking overbecause it's pretty straightforward butlet's talk about this first boss fightso the thing that we need to firstWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20understand about arcade mode is that itis a severe difficulty spike over normalmode and even over very hard mode andthat's for a number of reasons the firstreason is that you just take more damagethan you do in our in normal mode thoughi think you take the same amount ofdamage in expert mode but beyond justWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40the damage buff the other thing that'sreally hard about arcade mode is thelack of resources in regards to shieldsin regards to the electric shot you canactually change which type you want onthe fly if you hit it i'll point thatout because that comes in handy later onand of course health pickups and what'skind of interesting about arcade mode isWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00that in the first two stages the gamesort of fools you into thinking thatokay you're gonna havesome health pickups they're gonna besporadic but you'll have some turns outno so all your health pickups areliterally in stages one and two andthat's why when you saw me play stageone you could see how much more risky iwas playing and even in that boss fightWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20you get a choice where you can fight himwith a shield or fight him with theelectricum attack i don't know the proper namefor it so i'll call it the electricattack and the funny thing is is thatit's a really interesting routing optionwhen it comes to safety versus uhoffensive power because obviously havingthe sonic shieldWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40takes damage for you and that's muchbetter for safety and typically what youwant to use actuallybut if you want to go for a little bitof speed you can swap that out for theelectric attack that not only damagesthree parts of the boss at a time butalso just does more damage overall asyou'll see here with this electric thatWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00i'm usingbut the the trade-off being is that youknow if you take a hit in arcade modeit's a big deal because think about itbasically every two dots are a lifeand that's it those are all your extendsso i can't read it visually because i'ma little dyslexic or something butit's like five or something in thereWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20right you have ten dots five livessomething like that that's how youshould think about itbecause once you get past this stagethere are no more health pickups or ifthere are some they're very well hiddenbecause i couldn't find anyuh but another note i want to make aboutthe uh shield weaponthe shield and shock weapon systems isthat there is a mechanic about these twoWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40systems that i was not aware of when idid my initial review which isif you punch the smaller enemiesyou will getum ammunition for them and the way itworks is that they have a fixed amountof ammunition or healthnow when i say health it doesn't meanyou get more hits with your shield butWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00how long the shield survives becausebasically there's a little timer on theshield and once that timer runs out itgoes away that's why when you're playingthe game and you're first startingarcade mode you're wondering wait wheredid my shield go i didn't get hit sowhere did it go it's actually on thislittle timer and that's that gauge nextto your face or your profile face on theWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20uh hut up there forever i even tried tolook it up on steam i tried to look itup wherever i could i could not figureout an explanation of what the hell thatgauge was i looked i tried to see if icould find a manual for the game icouldn't find thatit's not in the tutorial so i'll tellyou what it is that's theuh health orammo for yoursub weapons soWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40there's that um so stage two is going tobe uh your first big hurdle in the gamethe thing about it that mitigates it isthat there's that night there's twohealth drops in stage two so you cansort of make some mistakes in stage twoand still be fine as long as you comeintothe final section there with only twoWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00hits taken you can fully heal but fromthis point onnow every single hit matters because youcan'tfor the rest of the game there are nomore health pickups and that makes ahuge difference so let's talk about thisboss right hereso the way i do this is i prioritizeuh trying to standardize all my swingsWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20and trying to standardize everythingthat i do sowhat's excellent about the boss thedesign in this game and i talked aboutthis in my review is just howintricately crafted it is and also howmuch versatility there is with how youwant to approach it here's somethingreally interesting so you're going tosee me take my first hitand the thing about that isWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40that was not actually totally my faultand this is something that you probablywill never see again in the history ofthis game which ison the night i was going for this uharcade mode clear this was like thethird night in a row i'd been grindingit i think i named this stream somethinglike if i don't get the clear tonighti'll set my computer on fire because theWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00night before i grinded the game for sixhours i stayed up till 5am in themorning which i shouldn't have done workwas really tough the next dayin order because i had two runs where iliterally diedon the finalsliver of health on the boss twice andit made me so pissed and so i was likeokay i'm just gonna keep playing thisWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20game until i get the clear no matterwhat happens i'm just going to keepgoingand soanyway to make things even crazier sothe next night i come back to grindingagain to go for the arcade mode clearand there's a bug that that appears thatwas not there the night before so therewas there must have been some sort ofWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40update because some of the ai changeshappened they weren't really that bigbut there was a glitch where two of thebosses you're supposed to be able towhip their colored bullets and cancelthem so the one you saw there where itried to go underneath it normally whatyou want to dois you want to jump up there if you sawmy previous runs you want to jump upthere and whip themWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00and that's the smart thing to do and itworks very consistently but because ofthe glitch if you try and do that like iwas doing in my previous runsit would just hit me because it wasn'tcanceling the bullets there was a therewas a literal glitch there so then i hadto try to come up with some sort ofdifferent route and it didn't reallywork out so no surprise i got hit thereWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20but from this point forward this iswhere i'm basically trying really hardnot to get hit for the rest of the gamebecause too many damages and that's thatespecially on the final boss though itheoretically could no miss the entiregame i ratted and practiced enough towhere i could theoretically no miss andone of those runs where iWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40uh died on the last liver health iliterally uh for the last three stages ithink it was no miss them because i onlyhad one sliver of health left myselfanyway so this is my challenge on thissnake mid uh my strategy on the snakemid boss probably pretty important toexplain what you want to do is the lefthead of the snake uh when it spawns isWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00lower than the right side so you canjust stand underneath it and spam itwith your upward width you want to keepdoing that until it spits that sort offireball thing you saw there then whatyou want to do is you want to run overto the left cornerjump double jump and then do the tetherand the thing about the tether that ididn't realize when i did the reviewWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20that ilearned since doing the view when goingfrom arcade mode clear is that thetether is a very very useful mechanicoutside of just grabbing on wallsbecause it gives you this tiny littleair stall and oh my that tiny little airstall is incredibly helpful andincredibly useful and i would say prettymuch required in order to get the arcadeWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40mode clear in a lot of sections so ididn't note that because i wasn't asaware of it during my initial review buti will note it nowso what you want to do in a lot ofoccasions you'll see me throughout therun when i'm jumping i'll jump doublejump and then tether onto nothing justto get that little extra air stall veryuseful in boss fights very useful in theWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00platforming sections very useful almostall the time so the tether mechanicactually gets used way more than iexpected but in a untraditional waywhich is uh using that aristotle like imentioned before another so this sectionis one of the hardest sections of thegame and i would say stage three iseasily the hardest stage of the game byfar the boss fight isn't the hardest butWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20the stage itself is brutal and mostlybecause of these two sections here sothis one and then the next rooma little bit of advice though so you seethese little uh robot parts coming offon the conveyor belt you're going towant to melee punch them and the reasonfor that is you're going to get extrahealth a timer for your shield which isWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40really important because uh you're gonnawant that shield throughout this sectionhere because this is a really dangeroussectionand so when you're playing this game inarcade mode i guarantee this section isgoing to give you hell and so idefinitely recommend practicing it a lotin normal mode and maybe even expertmode beforehand but i'll give you thegeneral idea so the general strategy isWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00there's one rule of thumb which is neverget caught on the bottom whatever elsehappens do not allow that to happen sowhat i do is i sort of make a littlemuscle memory where i jump tether andthen attack jump tether attack jumptether attack do not get stuck intotemptation and try and attack twice in arow because often you'll get stuckWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20uh this stupid enemy here so i watchediconic class running he had this reallyswag way of dealing with the enemy whichisyouattack it and then he jumps in the airanddiagonally hits itwhich is really swag and it works butthe timing on it is very tight andprecise and i found my method here isWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40much more consistent so i guess ifyou're speed running you're going towant to use the iconoclast method ofdealing with this guy but if you justwant to get the clear and you want to doit as safely as possible i think mymethods a little a little safer which isyou just run you slap it and thenimmediately jump away and thentrigger it again this section here isWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00very challenging unless you know how toroute it that little wall what you wantto do is you want to stand under thewalluh whip it once only once and then waitfor the enemy to spawn and the thingabout it that's important to understandis that the the whip has a massivehitbox the hitbox on your whip isactually much bigger than it looks whichWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20is very useful which means you cancancel these diagonal bullets with thewhip horizontally visually it doesn'tlook like it should work but it does soall you do is you stand under it attackthe wall once let the guy spawn whip himand rinse and repeat[Music]so here we go on this bossWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40so the name of the game here is you wantto get between those bolts obviously nowthis laser tag you want to jump over itright at the end there that way you canget a little extra damage off on thisbird the thing about this bird is it canget kind of tricky unless you justattack it and speed cut so you standWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00under diagonal diagonal diagonal keepgoing keep going then it's little birdsare going to chase after you you justkind of run away from them and just keepwhipping whatever you do and if you doit fast enough you won't go into asecond phase which is nice to avoid nowthis boss once again you kind of jumpover the beam at the start then he doesthe spinoff the walls like in mega man xWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20this is the trickiest jump herebecause if you touch those bombs theyhurt you and the weird bullets sort ofaccelerate coming out of him so you haveto be uh used to that it's going to hityou the first time it happens becauseit's so weirdbut once you get the feel for that bossfight it's one of the easier boss fightsin the game it's all about speed killingthe first birdWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40and then just making sure you're used tothe accelerating bullets it's all staticthough it's all 100 predictable once youknow how it works i think almost all theboss fights except the end boss fightironically enoughare pretty static at the first bossfight has some rng as well but if youspeed kill him it's not much of an issueand he's not that hardWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00but a lot of the other boss fights arepurely static so they're the same everytime which is useful so here's my littlesafe spot just run back to the back thevery back turn around and just whip withwith just keep whipping just keepwhipping until everyone spawnbecause your whip will cancel thosebullets and that section can getactually really gnarly if you try andWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20get too cute with it here if you jumpyeah if you umif you double jump and whip all the wayup as those guys spawn you can actuallycatch them coming in which is reallyuseful slidedouble jump then double jump this is oneof the harder dodges in the entire gamethis dodge right here because thesebullets are tiny they're fast they'reWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40diagonal your mass if i got hit uh i'mabout 50 50 honestly on that patternsometimes i get hit sometimes i don'tthat jump was awful though i shouldn'thave jumped i should have slidbut uhyou know sometimesyour head isn't fully in the game withthese types of things start to get alittle bit nervous when you're doingwell you start doing dumb crap uh soWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00such is the story of arcade mode as youwill find and basically what i had to dois i had to play the game so much and gothrough it so many times that iliterally just memorized all the dumbcrap you can do in the game and avoideditthis section herenot too bad if you're really comfortablewith your movement options especiallyWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20using that air stall so what you want todo here whip whip whip two just two jumpaway slide under or run underand then when he does that sort of athat was a really tight squeeze but whenhe does the part where he rotates hisguns that's where you want to jump overhim and get on the backside and oncehe's on the back side he can't jumpWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40backwards so don't get scared he'llalways jump forwards and so you can justgo to town on him uh that section haddone me in a time or two before youwould definitely want to preserve theshield here because remember no healthpickups no health pickups and you don'twant to be dealing with this sectionwithout the shield because there's allkinds of random jank these stupid uhWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00hovercraft cover pack guys jetpack guyscan use on youhere we go now what you'd ideally wantto do is you want to punch these guys toget a little more meter in your shieldthere we go let's see if i get the otherpunch toothere we go a little more meter in theshield not that big of a deal i shouldhave had morebut now we got two shields so thethere's two sort of timers the green andWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19the blue the green is like thesecond timer and then the blue is thefirst you know it's just like a littleextra timer on the green so it's alwaysgood to get fully green punch these guyswhen they come up at least the first onebecause you want to get more meter onyour shield otherwise it runs out bossfightthe thing okay that was bad i think i dokind of a crappy job here but this fightWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40here what you want to do is you justwant to spam him and then at the lastmoment jump over his shot because hisshot is actually surprisingly slow it'ssort of a change up to be honest ifyou're expecting of this fast attackwhat usually happens is youdodge it and then it's so slow that youmove into itduring your dodge like right thereWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00uh that can happen but as long as youget through it without uh taking damageit's fine because your shield isbasically basically going to run outduring this cutscenei did have a run where i was actuallyable to keep the shieldbut i felt like the routing that wasinvolved in order to keep the shield wasmore trouble than just not having theWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20shield because this section here as longas you know how to route itis pretty easyso you need to speed kill these guysabsolutely essential speed kill this guyspeed kill him speed kill himguys jump out from the science speedkill them speed kill him speed kill thisgun left now speak to the left jump overthe rightWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40there you go that last guy is a changeuphere's a bit of strategy that's reallyimportantso that section canbe an absolute nightmare that part wherethat guy was sitting on the platformwhat you need to do is right after youget those speed kill sections run to thevery tip of the platformof that uh ledge and whip whip whip whipwith him off on screen because that willWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00trigger his ai to back up what youreally need him to do because if youmess that up he'll just stand there andyou can't whip him and you can't reallyyou can try and time your jump but it'sreally risky and if he knocks you offgame over so i've had i had a game overor two on that guy before i found thatWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20ledge walk straight or thatledge strategy where you just stand onthe ledge on the very tip of it and justwhip whip whip and he'll move backuh so you definitely want to focus onthe girl boss first just standunderneath hera little bit of a bullet hell a taste ofa bullet hill here slide under thatkeep whipping keep whipping keepWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40whippingand one thing to be mindful of is um ifyou don't kill her early enough duringthat and you uh and she dies sure herbullets don't cancel when she dies sothere's times what i would recommenddoing is after you kill her just slideto the right corner just in case just tobe safe because sometimes she can sortof let off some revenge bulletsWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00but not true revenge bullets but sort ofpseudo revenge bullets as she's dyingbecause they're spawning as she dies andyou'll get hit by them so watch out forthat this boss fight is very interestingit's very simple just run away from rarun away from him until he swings hisside but really what it's doing is it'stesting your precision and patiencebecause you have to get pretty damnWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20close and hit him with the diagonalattackbutif you do it too aggressively he'll juststep into you and do damage you canactually take a lot of damage on thatfight through pure impatienceand he'll also walk forward after fourswings so my as you saw there what youdo is you run forward swing kind of do aWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40little step back step forward swingbecause you're not always fully lockedin when you attack diagonally you haveto remember that in the game is you youmight step forward a little bit eachtime you diagonally step that's why i irecommend whenever you're doing likeclose style damage like on that guydo like a little dash dance if you'refamiliar with smash games where you youWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00swing and then you step back and thenturn around swing step back turn aroundswing just these little step backs toreadjust your position that way you'renot accidentallyslowly moving into the enemies which canhappen quite a bit with diagonal swingso you'll notice i'm doing left rightleft right here one hit at a time why isthat because you want to kill them atWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20the same time like that so if you sitthere and just attack one and leave theother alone uh that's not good you wantit you want them to die around the sametime so that's what you just go one tothe other one to the other jump over dothe air stallthat air stall is the black magic i'mtelling you because if you try and dothat without an air stall you're notgonna make itthis this is funny this section hereWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40where you that little cutsceneum every time i play the game icompletely take my hands off the arcadestick because if you input during thatcutscene you'll diewhich or at least in an earlier versionthey may have patched that but in oneversion in the early version of the gameif you like jumped or moved it wouldthrow off the pre-programmed inputs andyou would dieWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00so as little death trap therethis thing you want to do here is youwant to really time that slide becauseif you're too early you're going to getclipped because your invulnerabilitywon't last long enoughand uh that's not good you don't want toget clipped because you're going to needevery bit of health you have coming intothe final boss smooth sailing so far iwill say two hits one i feel wasWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20completely unfair because the game wasglitched the other one was on thatreally tough pattern which like i saidis 50 50 of whether i got hit by thatthing or notoverall very solid run so far i wasactually excited this run clearedbecause it was one of my better runsi mean clear not with standing but likeWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40these the way the game works though islike i said i almost had a clear where iplayed like crap the whole game exceptthe last two stages where i playedamazing this one was more overall goodwhich is nice soyou're going to want to try and punchthose little guys if you can thoughdon't get too caught up on it uh becausei've had i had a run where i got toowrapped up and trying to punch littleWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00guys and i took a ton of damage tryingto do it i ended up game overing beforei got to the boss the thing about stagefive which i talked about in myreview is that stage five issurprisingly easy and it really isbesides a few little traps here andthere it's surprisingly easy other thanthe boss fight at the endthe thing about it is it's i'm kind ofWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20divided on how i feel about it becausein some ways it's sort of niceconsidering you have no health pickupsand uh to have like one more brutalstage on top of the rest would make thearcade mode even more brutalbut i still stand by my originalthoughts were i think they should havebeefed up stage five got rid of thissection replaced it with a differentWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40style sectionor beefed up this sectionmore and then maybe throwing a healthpick up in somewherebecause going basically the entire gamewithout health pickups is pretty brutal[Music]there we go and these things you juststun stand underneath them jump doubleWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00jump swing i guess it really tests yourability to double jump and swing becauseuh you got to do that a lot okay thissection heremy routing is very risky which is youhave to jump and land at a veryparticular rhythm therebecause you need to stop him so youactually need to kind of speed run techthat thing where you just run and jumpWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20very quickly because if he gets too faron the screen you're screwed you'regoing to take a ton of damage and get areally nasty scenario so it's one ofthoseit's actually kind of something you seein metal slug a lot actually where liketrying to play conservatively and kelpcarefully actually makes it way harderthan if you just goballs to the wall and really commitWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40really hard and you just the trade-offis you just have to be precise everytime butfor me that's definitely worth it thisbit here i punched them through thatlittle extra bit of shield that i couldsqueeze out this guy you just want totry and take out uh so i've seensometimes people just go around him buti had him in a nice position there sothe funny thing is is that this roomWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00i think was built just to drain yourshield it looks cool obviously but i'mpretty sure it's just there to drainyour shield another thing too is youkeep an eye on the shield meter thelittle cut scene here drains my shieldand this shield is super importantbecause there is a glitch in this bossfight like i was saying there's apattern a very key pattern of this uhWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20boss fight actually that you're supposedto swing and cancel the bullets butbecause of the glitch the bullets werenot canceling and i know it was a glitchbecause the day before they werecanceling so one day they worked one dayit didn't it was it's clearly a glitchand i'll show you the here it is so thispatternuh i was glitched so what i had to do isWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40i had to find the safe spotand stand underneath it the thing is isthe why the shield is so important isjust raw hitting that safe spot ispretty much impossible or or really luckdependent because it's not consistentit'll move aroundbut if you have the shieldyou can take that hit and then duringWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00your involve line up the safe spotand so that was lucky there's also somerng though too because he could haveliterally just done the pattern anothertime or two if he felt like it and thatwould have probably been game over but igot lucky he only did it once and i wasable to get rid of him here we go thisboss right here so my strategy forfighting this boss is very differentfrom other people's becauseWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20it's it's much more careful so it's alot drawn out so prepared buckle it thisis gonna be a long fight because mystrategy isone swing run awaygo in one swing run awayswing run away and the way i why i'mdoing that is because you basically canguaranteeWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40a lot more consistency with the fightwith the drawback that it just takeslonger and you have to be you know moreclutch for a longer time but as far asthe actual fight strategy this method ismuch easier than trying to be all swagbecause this guy has some real rng tohim and he can do some nasty stuff andwhat i do here is whenever he does theWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00shield attack or that charge thing theredouble jumpand then uh grapple over the top of himevery timeevery time and uh don't really engagewith him when he's standing in themiddle of screen like that because hecan hit you with some real nasty mix-upsinstead just let him run himself intothe corner and just run away from him sothat's phase one here's phase twoWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20the um there's some important advice ineed to get for phase two one do notdouble jump ever because if you doublejump your tether won't come out in timeand you'll hit the ground and you'rebasically dead so what you want to do isyou just do a single jump every time hecharges and he does a lot of chargeattacks then when he's on the grounduh you want to just stayWatch at: 26:20 / 26:4045 degreesnot 90. i learned my lesson 45 degreesaway from him because there's that nicesafe spotwith the uh one attack and also if hedoes the green you can just whip thegreens so there's thegeneral strategy it's long it's drawnout it's kind of scary because it justWatch at: 26:40 / 27:00takes foreverbut you can basically no miss the bossusing this methodfairly consistently it's just you needto and there's also sort of an idealheight so throughout this run that wasfrustrating as i kept so i was nervous ikept grappling too high so i'm just toohot right now i need to be a little bitlower not that much lower but a littlebit lower so i can hit that that wasWatch at: 27:00 / 27:20clutch and then i just landed down thereand swungand i got him there we go and i wasoh that that was a littlestraightforward for the replay because iknow missed him and everything butmy heart was pounding because again ihad two runs beforethe night before died on literally theWatch at: 27:20 / 27:40last hit literal last hit i wanted tothrow my computer out the windowespecially what happened the second timefirst time i was like oh okay that sucksbut you know every arcade run tends tohave something like that i had that inradiant silver gun for example had thatdodonpachibut twice that's that's when it's aWatch at: 27:40 / 28:00little muchbut yes so i was able to get the arcademode one cc what's fun is when you getthe steam achievement it shows you howmany people have gotten it 0.5 percentof the player base have the arcade mode1cc i'm not surprised though because itis pretty damn challenging like i saidit was it's a lot tougher than it lookson the surface becauseWatch at: 28:00 / 28:20one you just never get health upgradesand two there's a lot of things that ifyou don't know how to mitigate them youdon't know how to get around themthey'll just kill you and then you gottado it all over again uh it's a realtrial of valor and this is somethingthat i wanted to mention that wheneverpeople sit down and criticize a gamelike this for being too short i willWatch at: 28:20 / 28:40defend this game's length five stages ithink that's perfectly fine i think fivestage five could have been beefed upmore made the stage a little longer alittle more difficult but as far asmaking it like 10 stages two hours whichpeople tend to seem to want i actuallydon't like that style of design forarcade games like this arcade stylegames like this because it makes one ccWatch at: 28:40 / 29:00grinds insane because usually the waythe level design works stretcher h4 islike this actually where it's likeeighty percent of the gameisyou know level five difficulty basicallythen the last two stages are level ninebut in order to get to the last twostages you have to play an hour and ahalf and so in a lot of these runs youWatch at: 29:00 / 29:20can play perfectly for an hour and ahalf and then you know have a bad fiveminutes on stage on the last stage andgame over and then you gotta playanother hour and a half to do again itmade mania clears or whatever thehighest mold clear of sugar h4 which ido haveabsolutely brutal just the sheer timesync that it included soWatch at: 29:20 / 29:40umi think reviewers need tomention this a little bit more when itcomes to arcade style games thatjust playing through it once on normalmode is not the full extent of the gameyou should continue to play it at leaston expert mode and just that way youreally get familiar with the stagedesign the level design and you start tounderstand okay this is why the game isnot two hours long it's because uh theWatch at: 29:40 / 30:00arcade

  1. Just some notes:
    There is a health pickup at the top of the elevator shaft, before entering the sky bridge.
    The not being able to delete Balthazar's bullets was not a glitch, you're not meant to be able to delete flashing bullets, if you play on Easy, they become green bullets, which you can delete. Maybe read the bug thread next time.
    Personally, I prefer to get the Theta Hydron heads to 1 health each, then double kill them and save the minigun for the Core, because I don't want to deal with Trident Bots, while one head is still alive.
    Harris is always my run ender when I take more than one hit, because aside from the bullets, when he finished the 3rd pincer attack, the background pincer comes into the foreground, making you take a hit.
    The Orange Soldier can be dealt with by double jumping, using the zipline and punching him, with the other one behind him getting the whip, it's how I do it, personally.
    You're meant to delete the green bullets, not the flashing ones, during that attack the Magnum Imperator does.
    I can feel how you felt, because I lost the run to Magnus on his last life THRICE.

  2. Congrats on the clear dude! I know you’ve been grinding this on stream for a few days. Really rad game I love these type of action platformers. Once I finish grinding my video out for Sunday I’m looking forward to relaxing and playing this more. The pacing of the game reminds me of Gunstar Heroes personally even though it has aspects and mechanics from others.

  3. This didn't help at all and you know I really wanted to beat this beacuse I kinda like the idea a fun challenge since the game is enjoyable but ONE life!?! NO continues?!? Seriously give me a reason are there no continues!?! WHY are there no continues?!? WHY ARE THERE NO FREAKING CONTINUES AND HEALTH PACKS ON LATER STAGES?!? WHHHHHYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?!

    sorry for the outburst but this I just can't do this mode at all and I understand this mode is for hard core experts and it is challenging but there's a difference between challenge and just freaking impossible they need to at least patch it up a bit and have health pack in later stages I know this sounds stupid and again sorry for how mad I am its great that you beat it something that I can't and some other people can't do arcade mode sucks so hope you're having a good day

  4. I can't believe the Steel Assault tutorial doesn't teach the Air Stall by firing off a Grappling Line in the air. It's SUCH a crucial technique.

    Awesome play, I learned a lot from you! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Awesome playing and break down. This was a great game. The end of these extreme runs always gets super intense. I tend to fuck up right at the end. Happened to me with Super Smash TV and my 1 CC expert mode run of Double Dragon Advance. It looks tough with no health pick ups about 1/2 way in.

    Completely agree about long arcade modes. The two games I mentioned are over an hour, which gets real intense after a while. Playing for 1 CC can make you wish some games were shorter, ha ha.
