I am.

I got to the 4th area last night, I was struggling through the 2nd area for hours. It's tougher than the 3rd area imo.

Fantastic game though, i'm really enjoying it and i'm very addicted.

I like it but not a fan how you lose your progress like when you upgrade your life gun skills or the third skill I forget what it's called. Don't know how I feel about that and don't know how you make progress when you die and start over.

It's roguelike, that's how the genre works. It's the same with Dead Cells, Binding of Issac, games like that.

You spend your Sin points at the witch alter or whatever and whatever you unlock there is permanent. Like if you unlock the health flask, you get one heal for every run going forward. If you unlock the medium flask, you get two heals. If you unlock the armory you get your choice between 3 guns initially. Any weapon you unlock can now show up in the game.

It is permadeath, it's intended to play hundreds of runs to see how far you can get, earn Sin to unlock more stuff to help you go further. You only redeem Sin between levels though, if you die before finishing that level, you lose it.

These kinds of games are brutal and difficult, but rewarding the more and more you play.

Quick review, 7.5/10

Some of the shooting physics can be wonky, and there's a few issues like being seen and attacked before you even bust through the panels of a room, which gets you hit almost immediately. The camera isn't great. There is a lot to unlock, a lot of depth and a lot to keep going back to. The game looks fantastic and the narration is spot on. There needs to be more consistency with the difficulty, level 2 is so much harder than level 1, and then level 3 I made it through on my first attempt. I did about 20 playthroughs before I finally beat level 2.

If they fix a couple of the bugs, it's an 8 instead. I love this genre of game and they are few and far between. This is among the better ones i've played. Binding of Issac and Enter the Gungeon are still the best imo.

I'm finding double dual barrel pistols is great to have, 6 fast shots and quick reload. That 5 shot lucky pistol is solid also.
