How to play: New Game of Hard Mode, for best simplification.

Hard Mode is really hardcore, so prepare for a great challenge! There are greater numbers of enemies; the enemy has three times more life energy than those from Easy Mode; Bosses will rape you; bullethell is much more hellish than in Easy Mode; lesser Silver Skulls during Boss 4 sequence; indestructible projectiles during Boss 5 sequence. Greater mass of projectiles during Boss 5 sequence; And one aiding change: One additional projectile attack pattern of Boss 5 in phase three, which one is very easy to evade!

Solution: If your life energy consists of at least six units, go and save game status afterwards Checkpoint is done; upgrade your life energy always when able; restore your life energy by four units every time; apply additional Armor Parts if possible as well, before Boss battles - from Stage 2 on - price is increasing, consider wisely - leave it in the first four parts of Stage 5 be; perform evasive Back Flips in battle against greater knights and other greater enemies; get atop of the enemy's head even when target is up to high: Example, head of Boss 2 - double jump, then attack with Black Knight Sword at height, now immediately attempt to perform a Back Flip in the air up there, and swiftly hold your Sword down to stagger target efficiently; in Boss battles, prefer the Black Knight Sword to deal damage to the enemy.

We need endurance, willpower - but for luck, is not to ask for - however, luck is what you seek in the battle against Boss 5 in phase two! Good luck here - eh, and when the winged low level enemies are drawn, let them live - in Hard Mode, that Boss will not hesitate to attack directly - it helps you immense, out of that madness of a Boss battle.

Important Upgrading relevant: Upgrade Black Hellebore's Attack Power for at least two times, in order to get a slight chance to destroy Boss 5 in phase three (Damage x3 - Hard Mode, five hits with Black Hellebore)! Save Hearts as good as possible during Stage 5 or before, if Life Energy is fully upgraded per 24 units already.

About difficulty settings: Hard Mode is 3x that difficult than Easy Mode. New Game+ is about 2.5x as difficult than Easy Mode. If you play Hard Mode with New Game+, it will be extremely difficult (about 5,5x as difficult as Easy Mode).

If more techniques and strategies is what you want to get to know to, just ask - I will write them down in that case as well - I had to learn a lot, in order to get through this in Hard Mode, and I keep learning.
