Game is beating the crap out of me.

Had to take a day long break from the 4th level and play some Stardew Valley to chill out.

@Biff_ARMStrong You can carry them to different levels too, provided you don't exit the stage select. Plus, some have special properties, such as draining health from the enemy, extended range via "wind-cutter" or possibly chances of instant death (not too sure about this, but a certain axe looking like a scythe seemed to inflict disproportionately high amounts of damage while dismembering with ease). Shovels can be used as heavies too, they're weak and short-ranged compared to other heavy weapons but seem to have a higher chance of stunning for executions.

I'd also like to point out that almost every boss has a particular weakness that can leave them open to damage for a particularly long time. These can vary from dodging or countering a certain attack, parrying with your shield or using something in the environment to your advantage.

Well i played through the 2nd level as the little guy, and yea i died.. but after restarting from the check point i got the twins down half way on their last health bars so i know i could beat them but i just got tired and went to bed.

So i beat the 2nd lvl with the little guy, but it did take me a few tries.. and actually when i won, all i did was basically stand in place spamming attack while they kept walking into me..
but it sure seems like he takes way too much damage, or maybe im just making it up.

I did however use him and beat the last stage too... but I dont think it really matters who you have the last level, i just realized what the guy said about waiting till you're almost dead to break things looking for food... I got like 3 meats on the boss.

@Inertiacreep Good job! Yeah I discovered the food trick when I tried to break boxes ahead of time so that the food was ready when I needed it but they weren't dropping. Food only seemed to drop when my health is low. So you have to just play into the games dumb mechanics. lol

Lvl three boss is sooo hard. I can’t beat him. Soo annoying. Lol

@MarkTrav82 with Brennus I've beaten him on my second try. He's not much harder than the twins of the second stage imho. If you are able to get to him with rage full or nearly full it is a big help you could try once you get to know the stage a bit. For me, I got to him with all my lives and now I don't remember if I still had the dogs too but anyway I lost two lives but managed to kill him without losing the third one.

Arthal is vulnerable to being hit from behind. In particular, if you do that while he's using his unblockable bull charge attack he'll trip and be stunned. He's also very insistent about calling for reinforcements (to the point of of yelling even when his current wave hasn't perished yet), which can be annoying, but also give more opportunities to attack.

Anyone here try Guinevere? She has the ability to do a quick step in vertical directions with double-taps. Pretty handy.

@meleebrawler Probably it is because of his "obsession" about calling reinforcements that I've been able to beat him so early. He really behaved like a dumb idiot in the ending part of the fight I won

Just making a note of this thread. Got the game myself but not managed to put too much time in yet. These tips will come in mighty handy.

@Lroy It's superb I love it. I haven't been able to play it for long either and have yet to get past the first level but from what I've played, it's quite possibly the greatest beat-em-up I've ever played.

@meleebrawler yes, i played her maybe through part of a level but she is awesome... now that ive beat the game once, i want to play through with her next.

@OorWullie nothing is better than River City Ransom but this game is like, all you could ask for... could you imagine if they made like a FICTIONAL more light hearted side scroller with a richer color palette but still just as violent?

Inertiacreep

LuckyLand

@Inertiacreep I prefer this kind of setting but I would have liked even more something similar but fictional with some magic elements here and there like wizards, elves and dragons. Anyway this game is really wonderful. River city ransom is good but I prefer Wulverblade

@OorWullie Wowsers! That IS high praise indeed and from the short time we've conversed on here, I already recognise a kindred spirit in our gaming histories/tastes. I'm struggling to get much Switch time these past couple of weeks (less even than normal as my wife is bloody addicted to Salmon Run mode in Splatoon 2) but relish the chance to get further stuck into Wulverblade. Still on my first-try and think I'm on level 2? Basically, only downloaded the game and beat first big boss character and then had to shut it down.

@Inertiacreep @LuckyLand For me the setting is perfect. I'm Scottish, so being able to fight the English and ward off the Romans is a great feeling. Perfect game to play after watching some Braveheart haha

Yeah I really like it but it's only that usually I prefer at least some fantasy elements in games/movies/comics... but it's just personal taste this game is great and it is also very atmospheric and immersive.

Today I've beaten 4th stage losing only one life. It was just my second attempt at it. I'm really satisfied and it's been very fun.

yea like its so well done i could totally picture this in an arcade cabinet with minor adjustments. and like the last boss difficulty is like you need to keep throwing quarters at it to win.
