80% off from £9.99 is cold?

This will be good.....Why?

Heat from me bud (and don't forget to check out the weekly competition)

I hate platformers .... ever since sonic / mario / zool but this game was awesome. Quite hard in places.

One of my favourite games of all time. Hot!

Yep me too. Never managed to enjoy Mario and Sonic as much as the rest of the world did. I should really try this on Vita since I got it 'free' on PSN+. This is a tempting price to own on Steam too.

This is such a fun game. I can't beat the final boss because i am terrible when it comes to platformers, but i love the art style and mix of humour and serious tones.

Great game, can't wait for the Super Turbo Championship Edition! Until then this is worth £2 of anyone's money.

Had a blast on this 2 - player with my daughter. Highly recommended.

Excellent deal

Forgot to mention, it's on sale again today.

Linux ftw

I read this as Guacamole

Loved this game on the Vita but also can't beat the last boss. Seems to require a level of concentration that's totally beyond me.

SPOILERS FOR FINAL BOSS TACTICS (Kind of, no story details)

Its actually surprisingly easy once you know how. Just slow down and don't try to "twitch-tactic" to victory

For first stage: Basically don't panic. It's all down to timing. Stay still, and as soon as he appears dodge/jump to avoid his attack, and then make your way back to him and attack with the appropriate attack before he disappears(yellow = standing still, red = up, blue = left or right, green = down). I'd recommend just leaving him alone if he's green and waiting for the next one. Blue is easiest, as it lets you recover the distance lost when dodging him at the same time as attacking. You have until his cloak fully disappears to make the attack connect, which is a lot longer than you might think. There's a rhythm to his attacks, and going all out melee won't work!

As soon as your attack hits (breaks his shield) don't bother trying to connect more attacks, just jump away again and wait for his next attack which will likely happen less than a second later. Again, don't move too much, wait for him to appear and doge/counter appropriately. Rinse and repeat!

Second stage: attack him with the appropriate attack to destroy his shield, then retreat to middle of the screen and jump to grab the raining fireballs and throw them in his face. You're invulnerable during the "throwing" animation so you can breathe a little at that point. When he pulls back to the right, he's about to do a mid-screen blast so get to the floor and duck. When he raises his arms hes about to do a ground slam, so double jump and do an uppercut and you'll be safe. He'll occasionally spit fireballs but these can safely be dodged through. Sometimes he'll summon fire which either crosses the screen or descends vertically, but these are broadcast fairly early and if you return to the bottom middle of the screen neither of those attacks will touch you.

Watch a youtube video and learn the timings. You'll ace it in no time

Also, i just last week 100%-ed all the items, secrets, orbs, mask blahblahblah. And i'm AWFUL at action games. If I can do it, you can do it!

POLLO POWER!

EDIT: Also, heat added o_O
