Is it that good, then? I'm a little put off by the claims it's bastard hard and revels in "instant death syndrome".

Yup, 800 points which I had sitting there anyway.

/Buys

It's a great little runner-shooter and you get the first level to try out; inludes two kinda-similar bosses and a few of the weapons to try out.

Y'see, 6.80 for this doesn't seem too bad.

6.80 for the Midway "add on" is a fucking atrocious rip off.

I quite enjoyed playing it at the second Scandimeet on the Cube in co-op.

It's stupidly hard though and given that Live co-op isn't in, I'll save my money.

I do think it's rather over-rated though.

+1

On all counts. My mum loves it but I reckon it's another case of too much money being charged for just another flash game

I've only played it the once and I did think it was really well made and I did enjoy it but I couldn't help thinking Viewtiful Joe was better, if not better technically then in its game mechanics which are a bit more reasonable. Still excellent though.

I admonished Dan Paladin for saying that ASCII platformer was hard on the basis that AH was near impossible, and in turn he said they'd tweaked the difficulty for AH HD. So you should find it's a bit less forgiving than other versions you've played :)

Nope : to quote MS's blurb , "Multiplayer support: Two players locally in the main game, and up to four players offline or on Xbox Live in mini-games."

So mini games co-op over Live = yes
main game co-op over Live = no

Just had a quick crack at this... which is all I think I'll ever want to play of it.

Two words to the developer: Learning. Curve.

I'll have a fair go at a tough game, but this is taking the piss.

Nah, not a Southerner thing at all.

Must be an age thing. repairmanjack and Espad must be too young. Compared to some of the games we had on the 8bits and arcades "back when we were lads", AH is a walk through the park ;-)

Could be :)

Been enjoying R-Type on my Wii lately and that's brutal in comparison to games today!

Thirty-f*cking-four in June. :(

I've just gone soft in my old age. Especially around the middle.

Oww, my fucking thumb :(

It's fun and it looks really good, but I can't see myself lasting more than one level per session with this. I want to reach at least 30 before my thumb joints turn to dust.
