NotesAccessibility Notes


There's no difficulty option but you can choose which order you tackle the bosses which impacts difficulty. When you pause you can view a map that indicates locations of monsters.

You can use both keyboard and gamepad at the same time to gain extra options for control. On smartphone you can use the touchscreen like a joystick and buttons.

Blood is disabled by default, but can be turned on if you want. Subtitle size is generally good, although the homemade font is a little tricky to read.

Although you can't save any time, the checkpoints are generous.

When enemies are hit they flicker. When they are defeated the word "Bashed" appears on the screen.
