Under rating threshold (show) After playing briefly, my intention was to rate this game 3/5. After finally getting the hard badge, I rated it 1/5. This is an honest rating because I honestly hated it by the end. I would say the hard badge should be impossible, but really this game doesn't deserve badges at all. The game is not hard so much as it is stupid, and there are a few basic problems: (1) the tail is too long and too unresponsive; (2) the locational damage of armor and blades abuses the sloppy control; (3) powerups are far too rare; (4) objects dart in from nowhere at random times and random speeds; (5) the claustrophobic screen has too little space to maneuver. These are all examples of Fake Difficulty, and the game is far too reliant on luck. Futility is having swarmers spawn directly on chunks of tail, and this perfectly encapsulates the Oroboros gameplay experience.

Under rating threshold (show) OK - I was willing to let the fact that the game had no tutorial slide, and the first lvl seemed intruiging; the idea of the game was to protect your tail and eat stuff I thought, fine. Then in the next level it tells me to attack with my tail whilst protecting it... And in the next level it tells me that I have to destroy my food to protect my tail so that i can use it to kill things. WTF?

Under rating threshold (show) Ok, an explanation for those confused. 1. Energy Bombs are for the little antimatter particles that look like food. They will destroy all your food(which might be good since food can hurt you, too), AND all of the purple antimatter gobs. 2. Blades: Each segment will gain blades. If you hit a seeker with a BLADED segment, the seeker dies. If you hit a seeker with a naked segment while having some segments bladed, he will latch on. Every time you hit anything with a bladed segment, the blades degrade some. 3. This game is not about destroying things. It's about dodging and surviving. Be happy there is ANY way to destroy things at all. Your focus should be: Dodge > Eat > Destroy. 4. The way to get a high score is, as Luisn said, to get a big multiplier in the beggining levels.

Under rating threshold (show) False Difficulty, 'nuff said. Game is incredibly challenging not because of depth of the game but because the tail is out of control 90% of the time and there are so many projectilces. Love the concept but I can't say I enjoyed this game very much :^/

Under rating threshold (show) I can't find any way to tell if my blades are activated or not. What does a bladed segment look like? Which enemies are seekers? I'm only here for the badge, I've played 5 times, and killed 1 thing (somehow, at some time, no idea when).

Under rating threshold (show) Hard badge seekers: Do not be discouraged by your low score! Keep playing! I was around 60,000 when I hit the level with lots of seekers and blades. That level boosted my score to over 150,000. A few levels later there is nothing but food, just collect the food and increase your multiplier (agility and cohesion help scoop up food without losing your tail). My mutli went to 20 and my score was over 600,000. With that multiplier on the following level my score was over 1,000,000 in no time! The scoring system is silly, yes, but just keep in mind that being at 40,000 does not mean you are THAT far from the hard badge. Just stay alive and keep playing, look for that all-food level!

Under rating threshold (show) this game is a very interesting idea and design, its just WAY WAY WAY the hell too hard. There is NO way to protect all of your tail once it is above 4 segments, it is just too long and there are just too many enemies. After 30 minutes of playing, I am only at 40,000 points... how the hell are we supposed to get 1 million? that hard badge is complete bullsh*t

Under rating threshold (show) The easy badge is actually very easy to get. For the first upgrade max out your tail of blades and you can slice two seekers in the 2nd round with the tail of blades power-up. Restart and repeat until you get 5, show people that's how you get one of the lowest earned easy badges.

Under rating threshold (show) Yay got the badge. A tip for all of those struggling out there: You want to not get hit at all the first couple levels, maxing out your bonus tail to like x20 will get you to 1,000,000 easily, I got x20, then got hit and went back up to x16 somehow. (Use your evos on segment cohesion and retraction stamina, mainly segment cohesion though)

Under rating threshold (show) Actually a very easy HARD badge to get so long as you spend ALL of your time avoiding enemies. Ignore blades, ignore armor. Those powerups are so rare so as to be useless (the only exception is the level with constant blade powerups, and the level with ZERO enemies). Just keep avoiding everything, and you'll get a million points easy.

Under rating threshold (show) to get the easy achievement well easily just play level 1 and 2 and kill 2 seekers each time. Because the kills are cumulative between games just start new game after level 2 and it should only take about 10 min (3 games) to win.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is exciting and interesting!!!=] The hints are that you just keep eating the white things. Once you have 3 upgrade points, add them to agility and the one above it( forgot the name) Once these two get to max level, then add points to top right one which help you to protect your tail from being attacked. Next, add point to blade and then finally shield. If seekers come, just shake your tail to get rid of them. But make sure your tail is in blade form(you can eat balde power and then press 'x' to change your tail to balde) ***Remember not to use your tail to touch the white things and the mobster with an ugly eye and the small purple bombs.*** That's all you need in this game. Enjoy yourself and the awesome game!!!=]

Under rating threshold (show) The easy badge is NOT that hard...all you have to do is play the game until you get to the tutorial-ish part where they give you the tail of blades, about 30 seconds in. Use it until it is depleted, then simply start over. Please help others see this, obviously a lot of people are having trouble ;)
