    A lot more backtracking than ascending

    This does appeal, but the hectic nature may be a bit much for me!

    I notice on the store page it says it includes local co-op but in this review there is no mention of the co-op or what it has to offer. Is it the full single player experience but in split screen?

    Side note: I found this blog post from the Dev regarding the development of the game - https://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/KennyCreanor/20180430/3....php - always nice to see someone with a genuine passion for their project do well.

    Nice. Good to see a Dev making changes so soon for things that aren't even game breaking.

    Ideally I want to play this in co-op but cannot find specifics on it anywhere other than it's vertical split screen and you have independent times/scores. I would like to know how split screen effects progression, i.e. are both players on the primary profile so progress is shared etc.

    https://theinsatiablegamer.com/getting-pissed-pretty-colors-... - has a short video of split screen but doesn't really elaborate on...
    It also features a nice split-screen mode, so you can race your friends and gloat about how fantastic you are.
    Whereas the store page says
    Local Multiplayer mode - complete the game with a friend, or race against them for the best time!

    Just to add in case anyone else was wondering: It is a kind of competitive co-op, you both race to finish the level but as long as one of you finishes the level, it still counts as your progress since it's a shared profile co-op.
