Under rating threshold (show) I thought everyone was just whining about the final boss. Well, first time I got three rainbow bonuses and two rages and I still couldn't beat him. Took a few tries but finally he raged on me when I had a counter bonus set up and we knocked each other out, which apparently counts as a victory. Awesome.

Under rating threshold (show) There's a lot more strategy to this than I expected, I'm impressed. Multiplayer would be awesome, but adjustable difficulty levels with smarter and dumber AI would be even more awesome. The AI sure makes a lot of stupid moves, at least in the earlier levels.

Under rating threshold (show) Now I finished the game with all 3 characters. Concerning the luck factor: somehow all match 3 games are a bit luck based. My tip is to play with Ryu first: like mentioned full upgrade and use counter attack and defense in the last fight and it'll be not that hard. I had the most problems when playing with Pixel (with Bit the Bunny it was also easy). Epic game, hoping for a second part!

Under rating threshold (show) It's a fun game, but there's too much luck involved to make the final boss that hard. There is definitely some strategy, but it's mostly luck. I spent an hour and didn't beat the last boss. Now this game is just frustrating and I don't want to play it anymore. :-/ 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) Now I remember why I stopped playing this game; because you can have a great game and then the boss gets a lucky combo chain with a dozen HP and kills you in three hits.

Under rating threshold (show) First time against the final boss i knocked him out haha the trick is always go for 4 combo first so u get an extra turn on top of chains and then go after defense tiles, then go after counter tiles in that order that way your protected against all attacks and u have a chance to chain others like rage, health, energy.

Under rating threshold (show) The fact that you and your opponent both use the same board can be annoying, because you can't set things up for yourself. But at least if all the moves are bad moves you can skip your turn and force your foe to take the bad move instead.

Under rating threshold (show) Strategy guide: Pass your turn (by waiting) unless you can get 1) a 4+ clear or 3+3 of the same color 2) an attack/rage 3) a counter/defense/heal/energy that does not open you up for getting attacked. Also, don't take the last valid move; a fresh grid is very helpful. I beat the game with just 67% upgrades this way.

Under rating threshold (show) Reminds me of Puzzle Quest but even more luck-based and annoying. When the AI can play the game /this badly/ and still win consistently, you know the deck is stacked in their favor. And quit on the final boss after an hour or so. At that point it quit feeling like a challenge and instead became beating my head against a wall. It's just not entertaining enough to put up with that level of difficulty.

Under rating threshold (show) Pretty much cruised through the game until the octopos, but now I've lost more battles in a row against him than I have against everyone else in the entire game up to this point. Don't feel much incentive to keep at it until I get the lucky win it seems to need. Like the game, but it needs rebalancing.

Under rating threshold (show) Wow, an amazing game. I like the characters, and after the first level, I was ready to play for a while. Great music animations, and I have never seen these two concepts combined. If it's pre-existant, thenyou made it really enjoyable. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) I love the concept!...but judging from just the first few games played and the other comments here that there was no playtesting or balance testing. When you make the second one, make sure you take some advice or at the very least grab a few of these people that finished the whole game and have them play test it for ya.

Under rating threshold (show) I beat the boss basically by having max defense upgrade and keeping the shield up. look for x4 all the time, recover health so you can take at least 100 dmg when you're not shielded. recover energy as needed. rage when there's nothing for you to do. Also, it's better to keep shield up so you don't take damage even if octopis attacks. with shield and counter on, you can take down the boss
