Quoting Werewolff .
Nice! Great work on the angles of the coats / capes on both the characters. I'll have to check this game out! (Though, to be fair, I'm...not the best at difficult games...)
It does ease you into the difficulty at first, but after a while you hit difficult platforming areas and other areas with enemies that require good reflexes to deal with (mainly boss fights).
One must resist the urge to try repeatedly hitting bosses; hit and run for most of them.
