I think the lesson from Video Game Critic is not to try to learn how to play in a hurry. That was my experience too. When I ran the game the first time, I was in left-handed mode and found the controls pretty confusing and frustrating. Even when I read the manual, I had to peruse it a few times to even understand what LH and RH meant.
Glad to see people are enjoying this game. I'll give it another try when I have the time.
I'll look at the online manual tomorrow and see if it can be made clearer. (I wanted the words to be spelled out in the game, instead of using RH and LH, but I ran out of space.)
When I asked him if he could review it (although it wasn't on cartridge yet), he said that he was busy, but he'd try since he has a Harmony cart. I guess we're lucky he found time to review it. It just sucks that it seems like he played it for 5 minutes and spent about 3 seconds glancing over the online manual. But a bad review is better than no review. At least it's in the list on his web site and more people might see it.
It's great that this game is getting attention, even if it's occasionally bad attention... Awesome job with the game RT!
