It was more a case of 'no-one gave me any praise'. :(

Also we really should be wheeling out the Hyper Sentinel GRcade logo again to celebrate launch day.

I can guarantee you that it is more shock than praise as I am really really bad at games.

It’s happened. The game has been 100 percented on PS4 (every mode, every level, every difficulty). I’m in absolute awe at that.

I beat the final stage/boss earlier, it was good!

I'm sitting at number 1 on the 4B leaderboards too B)

I was second on the Xbox overall leaderboard last night. Need to play more though as still learning best way to play.

I did a full run without quitting or dying!



Aw yeah B)

EDIT:

I've also just discovered this great protip - you can get the speedrun medals on boss mode, which is way easier as you skip half the level

Yup that’s exactly right :o

Also on gamepad - pro tip. Use the Y button on Switch. Tap to fire, hold to boost. It’s way quicker for pro speed runs and scores,

Is that true? I've just spent ages trying to beat the speedrun time on 3A. :fp:

Last medal I have is 3B, On Guard. Which is the sentry guard, is it the big thing in the middle? Because I've done that level so many times without being hit now. :?

Which platform are you on? - I’ll check it out to see if there is any issue.

I'm on Xbox, but don't worry, a few people have already got all medals so it's probably just me. It is that middle thing though right?

It is yes. Make sure you complete the level as well - you only get the medal at that point, so don’t quit out early. I’ll double check whether it was in our patch fixes, that will be going out.

Are you aware that Survival mode is a bit broken? I'll spoiler the issue below because it really does ruin the mode completely.

You can pretty much survive any level indefinitely by moving to the bottom of the screen and holding left and fire

Ah thanks - we are doing a patch for a few things right now. I’ll will get that sorted.

Tried out retro difficulty. Did this just add a load of blue barriers to collide with?

I was expecting more damage from enemies, although to be fair I think I prefer this :lol:

Yup you collide with walls as well as your lasers now. Also your shield re-gen is slower and the critical hit rate is smaller.

Glad everyone is still playing. We have a few patches coming out soon. Sorry for a couple of glitches that have been found. We’re a tiny team and releasing on all consoles and PC at the same time is like trying to keep all the plates spinning together.

I’ve been massively humbled by the game’s response. Much more than I expected to be honest.

This bodes well for the future :-)

You have absolutely nothing to apologise for dude, the game is incredible! I've been critical of a couple of things but to be fair no-one really cares about achievements except me, and that survival mode glitch is just something random I found while playing. And that's because I've been playing a lot. I really really love it.

Although the 3A boss can strawberry float off and die in a fire.

Cool, thanks! :toot:

Glad to hear the launch has gone well!

Another glitch was found in Breath of the Wild today so I wouldn't feel bad about finding any in this game ;)
