I don't think it's that brutal with the OP characters. Pretty cool game though.

It's says. You need to buy all characters or fully upgrade all ,one or the other I forget first then it unlocks. They are all trophy related anyway.

 

And it's not brutal at all, I actually beat arcade with Jon, but the platinum is heaps. 2/10 or 3/10. Depending on twin stick skills I'd say.

 

Edit: I might as well make a trophy guide at this point lol

The OP-character Erika is unlocked when you unlock and fully upgrade Cloe, Liery and Fael. Once you upgraded those 3 you have to pay 9,999 gold to unlock Erika. Best thing is to unlock Cloe as soon as possible and then spend some time playing stage 4 (and maybe 5) until you have enough money to fully upgrade her and the MK 1000 which will greatly help to kill the enemies. Just ignore the turret as it feels rather useless.

If performing well you can earn about 3.5k to 4k coins with Cloe in stage 4 and about the same amount in stage 5.

That's some really good advice my friend, thanks a lot for that! It seems we almost have a roadmap ready! 🙂

About how long would the platinum take? I think I'm finally going to get this.

I'm not quite sure about this actually. Someone else can answer this question? Didn't play a lot after making the video.

Between 5 and 10? It's skill-dependent, and the high percentages are a little deceptive - it can be quite hard.

 

Regarding the tip above, I would personally recommend using Liery to farm gold, assuming you're comfortable enough with the game. If you end up picking up over half the gold drops, you'll earn more than what you'd have with Cloe.

It will be useful information to know when I decide to go back, thanks buddy! 🙂

Not sure if you ever bought it, but the game is on ”stealth” sale. Doesn’t show up in the weekly list, but if you go on the Vita store it’s 50% off. $6.74 here in Canada, so presumably $5 US. Cross buy, so you get both versions.

Recently bought this game at an even better sale. At $2.99US, this game is absolutely worth it. Maybe the best game I've bought under $5. I'm about 10hrs in and just one arcade run away from the Platinum.

Got this game on a whim on sale for $2. 

 

Awesome game. If Nex Machina was on the Vita, this would be it on a smaller scale. Fun and fast bullet hell.

Game is not definitely a 2 /10 plat. The major issue to me is the inconsistency on sprite collision. I've played it quite a few times and to this day I can't figure if the collision is body detection or position (feet position related). Sometimes I'm sure I'll must die and don't, sometimes I die without any apparent reason. It's way worse than C64 or ZX Spectrum games. Considering the abyssal power gap between both (current consoles and PCs, 70s basic computers) this is not acceptable.

At the beginning the 2 most interesting characters are the one with the magnet and the one that provides 2x gold. I do find the first better, although the magnet is dumb as it only attracts gold and you have to pick everything else.

Don't compare this to Dead Nation. DN is a fantastic game, RC ex is an OK game, personally I think the quality between both titles is too large. Although DN is more difficult overall, due to how consistent and reasonably predictable it is it becomes a lot easier than this RNG fest.
