I REALLY want this to be good. I have said before that I only found the first world, Boletarian Palace, to be at all difficult, with the others being a comparable walk in the park, only dying (in those other worlds) when I couldn't see a gap in the floor or a cliff because of camera issues or my own character BLOCKING that gap (3rd person view... I love you and hate you all at once!)
I know what part of the problem was: I played an archer, I found that bloody Thief Ring early on... may as well have turned on God Mode, if there was one. If this one has a similar item then I may just avoid it altogether because I firmly believe that ring completely ruined the challenge and some of the enjoyment for me.
