Under rating threshold (show) the easy badge is not that hard, when you first get the blades a seeker will come and u will probably inadvertently kill it, and from my experience u pretty much have to play through it five times getting that same exact kill. I can't even begin to imagine how to get the hard badge...after a while, i seemed to understand the mechanics of the game but my highest score was around 50K. Altogether, interesting concept but poor execution (and badging; looking at you kong)

Under rating threshold (show) I have to agree on the confusing complaints. After a few games and being no further along in figuring out what is good and what is bad I just rated it a 1/5 and gave up.

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) 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) Very cool game actually. The "seekers" are the things that look like frogs that try to chase you beginning on level 2. The easy badge actually lives up to its name, once you know what to do. After completing level 1, you should have 6 points to spend. I recommend maxing your blade durability. When level 2 starts, a power-up should appear toward the beginning of the level. That's the blade power up. Get it, and when the seeker appears, try to swing around so it touches one of the blades. It may sound complicated, but it's really easy once you get the hang of it. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) ok first of all i dont think this game deserves all the hate it gets. this being because i find the controls to be responsive the concept intiresing and THE USE OF UPGRADES (for all of you who probably didnt see that) to be origional and the dificulty challenging. the gam isnt supposed to be so hard its unfare just hard.

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 ;)

Under rating threshold (show) Most annoying thing is you get Item X and Z in first level... well freaking let me keep them so I can actually get used to using them. And offer me upgrades for them or something I mean you're already limiting the time length I can even use them for when I get them. Also the Point scale seems to be going up gradually but still seems a bit slow. Concept is worth two stars but as I keep playing will see if I can find any value as I go.

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) O.o I don't know about everyone else, but I quite like this game. The music is catchy and fun, and the gameplay's different from most games I play. Yes people, the hard badge is hard... Isn't that what it's supposed to be though? I mean really.. Getting worked up cause a hard badge is too hard. I give this game a 4/5, and a hope that the developer creates more unique games :)

Under rating threshold (show) I hate it, I press X because I've just got the bonus to do it. But there is absolutely no obvious signs that you've done it right. I've died so many times just bevause I thought that it was alright. And you can't know when the effect will end.

Under rating threshold (show) for those not knowing norse mythology, which is probably most of us, Ouroboros was a giant serpent-like dragon who circled the world like a belt, and had to put his tail in his mouth.

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) 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) 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) 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.
