Yarg! I was kind of unimpressed with how easy this game seemed compared to when I last gave it a whirl years and years ago on the SNES. But then I started unlocking the bonus content and it changed my outlook completely.

Helper Arena and The True Arena are so infuriating! They seem so tantalizingly doable, and yet at the same time, so challenging! I'm getting so tired of playing for ten minutes and then getting wiped out (or nearly so) by Wham Bam Jewel (in either game); I've only made it to Marx Soul twice.

Has anyone else been playing this?

Haven't played it since it's release, but the Helper Challenge or whatever it was called was very difficult.

...See, I made that post because I knew right afterwards I would finally finish the darn thing. :embarrassed: I read on GameFAQs that a) opponents in the Arena have less health if you don't use a helper, and b) that Plasma power (especially when combined with blocking) kicks major tush. That's pretty much all I needed to know.

Now I just have to decide if I'm crazy enough to finish Helper Arena with the remaining characters. (Yay, Parasol!)

Personally, I found Helper Arena to be hardest with Capsule J. Even in the original, I could never get the hang of the Jet power.

A very handy feature is that you can build up a charge (by rotating the control pad) while guarding, and the field that subsequently surrounds you protects you even more. Suddenly the original Arena is practically trivial!

Even in the original, I could never get the hang of the Jet power.Yep, that was the last one I needed - and I ended up finishing with my second-fastest time, after Bonkers. Seems the GameFAQs people were right about that one. One very useful tip I learned there is that you can store power just by tapping L or R instead of having to jump.

Yay, finished! That was so freaking amusing I might just do it again sometime. I should add that I really like how the cinematics for each game come up automatically when you start; it never occurred to me to wait at the title screens when I played the game on the SNES, so the Milky Way Wishes story was thoroughly confusing.
