Any Henry Hatsworth fans here? It is a great game if you haven't given it a try. It is a "core" game in the sense of being difficult...and it is difficult for the right reasons (i.e. not "cheap difficulty" or difficult because of poor design.)

I have yet to play that game, and my money is semi-literally on Pokémon Platinum.

I really love this game, it really took me by surprise. It's a fun platformer and puzzler in one. Yeah it gets HARD on some of the later levels but it always feels fair.
Everyone should pick this up, especially at the low retail price!

Yup, it is great. I wasn't expecting much, but I love it. OK, it's incredibly frustrating, but all the same...
4-6 is impossible.

4-6 took me several days and numerous lives before I finally came up with a workable strategy. What part is giving you the most trouble? I found that taking advantage of the times when you are only fighting Weasleby (sp?) was a great time to just dodge and not do any damage to Weasleby. This allows your puzzle to regenerate, hopefully giving you some hearts and building up your super meter. Use tea time for dealing with the monsters and with the clone, then just spend time healing/regenerating during the solo attacks. It took some time, but once I got a rhythm down, it wasn't too bad.
EDIT - Oh, also how are you at juggling? Learning that technique was an incredible help because you can do a ton of damage to him by juggling him for long periods of time without giving him a chance to get up and attack.

I love it. It reminds me of what made the Ducktales NES game so much fun (putting your life in danger for financial gain and NOTHING ELSE!) but with a brilliantly self-aware attitude of mockery.
I haven't beaten it yet. But I love it.

Woohoo! Just beat it last night. I don't think I'm going to bother with Gentleman mode...I've got too many unfinished games in my backlog to pour even more time into this one. Fantastic game though and well worth the budget price!

Dont do the gentlemen mode, thats pure pain :-[
Better try to get a 100% save file instead.

I just ordered this from Amazon and am greatly looking forward to playing it. One of my favorite puzzle-game series is Puzzle League (formerly Tetris Attack on the SNES), and the puzzle portion of Hatsworth looks exactly like that game, at least from the videos I watched. I'm also a platforming fan, so this is a win-win. At least I hope so -- I'll find out soon enough.
