    I think it's still a bit unbalanced. Just played the first battle of level one. Loads of skeletons with swords, healers, the blood skulls and the high stamina ones with hats all came up. I just didn't seem to have enough time to kill them all before being overwhelmed.

    I still can't beat the second boss! I must have played about 40 games. I can hit the pirate twice but after that things are always too tough to keep going. I've unlocked lots of spells now so runs are getting a bit easier due to interesting combinations sometimes appearing.

    Some tips:

    And make sure you stack the rogue's ability sometimes. Then you can get crazy amounts of hits.

    @rice_sandwich I swear I only hit him twice. I definitely only hit the one on my second run twice. I did pelt them with spells though so maybe that's it?

    @BigOrkWaaagh

    It could be like you say. I did another run and was really close to beating him again. The normal battles are great fun. I'm at the stage where I'm playing like clockwork and everything is making sense and I'm stunning, reducing stamina and knocking back at will. I reckon I just need one lucky run with a good spell to see me beat the second boss. What a brilliant game though.

    I must be doing something wrong, I went straight through and beat the 2nd boss on my first go, got 81 unlocks. It also seemed to be the end of the game, I take it the next go will have 3 levels?

    WHAT?

    I only made it to the second boss twice in maybe 30 or 40 runs and haven't beat him.

    How is that possible? Not played since the latest patch, so I'll console myself by assuming it became much easier. :p

    @neems Yep, exactly right. Also, well done! :)

    Cheers :)

    The second level was definitely much harder, I don't think I managed to actually wipe out the enemy in any battles but I always managed to survive.

    @neems

    FFS! Must be beginner's luck!

    I'm totally addicted to it. Cant stop playing. I had a big leap forward in my understanding when I realised you can rearrange everyone to any lane after a character attacks. It's a bit of a faff sometimes even although the controls are good.

    Started my second run with the minstrel replacing the mage. As I no longer have Vortex I don't have the luxury of a 'panic button' and have been near death since my second battle. Despite this I have somehow managed to soldier on, managed to beat the first 2 bosses without really knowing how.

    I have no stamina or money, the knight has half health, .but I do have a couple of water spells and a floating lightning skull. Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.

    I really must beat the second boss to get all those unlocks. Will give it another try tonight.

    I only got 75 unlocks, so I guess you can unlock them whether or not you beat the boss just by playing. Also you unlock each item one at a time, which is fun.

    So basically neems has played this game twice, and beat the second boss both times.






    I really need a new hobby.

    @UncleLou Well, kinda. In the first run there are only two levels. One with a skeleton midboss and one with a pirate final boss. Each subsequent run you get an extra level thrown in, so in the second run you get two skeleton midbosses. Sounds like he hasn't yet reached the second final boss.

    @UncleLou

    What trouble are you having with the second boss? I find I eventually became overwhelmed by hordes of enemies after hitting him a couple of times and it's impossible to break the last statues in time.

    I can reach him almost every time and most of the normal battles are manageable, but I just can't beat him.

    I finally died on my second run fighting against the ghost pirate(?) at the end of level three. I lasted a long time, but I just really struggled to put any of the enemies down.

    I seemed to have a lot of health on the plus side (and some items regenerate health slowly) so I could tank a lot of hits. Just got overwhelmed in the end.

    @rice_sandwich Same as you! At one point it just all falls apart and I am getting overrun.

    @neems Wait, the ghost pirate is the boss of the second level, surely?

    @UncleLou Ghost Pirate is the boss of all final levels. They just have different elements depending on what run you're on.

    @BigOrkWaaagh Ah, cheers! Makes sense. Well, in a way, I guess. :)

    I'm playing one game a day until I beat the second boss. Last night's attempt went ok. I reached the second region but then became hampered by an item that greatly increased melee power but also greatly increased my rogue's recovery time. So I couldn't keep up with the hordes and was overrun.

    I beat the second boss last night, after a handful attempts. Finally! I really think something in the latest patch made things a little easier.

    The second tier game I am now on generally seems easier, due to all the unlocks (and the new character).

    @UncleLou

    So it looks like I'm falling behind the rest of you guys. Hopefully I won't be posting 'Run 872: Reached the second boss for the 800th time and lost. Again.' 😁

    Congrats Lou!

    Still haven't even reached the third pirate yet (I fell one node away), but I did just beat bandana boss in under a minute :D

    Cheers. :D

    rice_sandwich, I am confident you'll beat him sooner than me, I think it took me 65 attempts or so.

    Also, do you all think I should maybe ban neems?
