Be aware!! The first one had some EVEN numbered achievements with their counter parts sometimes being quite tricky. Thus, you can be left with the dreaded awkward Gamerscore total. (Maybe this is annoying for just me, I'm just warning...!)

However, first one was a lot of fun and a decent new[er] concept. Artwork was fun and game play can get quite difficult at some points. I'd recommend the demo to people first, the play style may not be for everyone.

Glad to see there's a second though, may have to wait for a sale price since these previous sales have drained my MSP vault :)

Achievements are nothing, we get it. But thats not gonna make us stop getting them.
