    yeah I just had a look, I agree totally with you about there being a fine line between "just one more go and I'll beat him" and too hard.

    ive left it, it's a very good game, which I don't like

    I was thinking more a game that has no bosses - Robotron didnt need em !
    Apparently they have had a lot of requests for some kind of survival mode... Maybe that would be boss free

    yeah I got that the last time I gave it a go. I was thinking I would like the game design to be a bit like Geometry Wars 3 adventure mode where you have five or so levels then the boss so you can do each level on it's own, rather than in Nex where you have to do all levels in the world in one setting

    Got as far as the real last boss. Its mediocre at best. Worse still is theres a laser twirling around at the start of the level. The power up is top right.. so if you die its almost stupidly hard to reach the power up. And of course because of how the checkpoint system works.. it actually makes more sense if you die w/o getting it to just stand and die and wait for it to respawn next time. Same goes if you get a useless powerup - and for this boss around 50% are.
    finally because of the shit he fires at you when you do die - chances are it wont be once -because 7/10 it will just spawn you were theres bullets already.. so you just die again.

    All in all a bit of an anti climax IMHO. Which is a shame for sure.
    you might want to try out Cryptark, it's a twinstick shooter which has excellent shooting macanics but requires a lot of strategy to get anywhere in it

    Great news! Now to get the extra world (space station) you have to do the same thing on 'Experienced'
