Enemies that can kill you in two hits or ones that barely do anything. Either can spawn on the first floor. I'm moving on from this mess.

This was going well. The final boss having an undodgeable attack you need to survive at least twice is enough to take a star off in itself. Achievements: 50 / 56 (89%)

Congrats on beating Toki Tori 2+, but now it truly opens up as I recommend you make an attempt at picking up at least some of those golden collectible things that you didn't naturally pick up in the course of playing through to the ending. Figuring out how to reach those and you start to realize how well thought out the puzzles in the game actually are as while it seemed like you were "just" going through a series of separate distinct puzzles... well to get those other collectibles they may have to start bleeding together a bit.

EDIT: Yeah, when a friend of mine sold me hard on Toki Tori 2 my first thought was "it looks kinda simple, how much could you really do with it?" There is also a reason I listen to his recommendations as it turns out if you are good enough at puzzle design you can do an awful lot with even just a couple actions.

I could see giving a simultaneous Torment: Tides of Numenera playthrough at some point in the future, sure! I'm also likely not free to do it in the near future as I've decided to spend some time digging through that massive 1700+ game bundle from a couple months back (if you've wondered why my now playing list has been so... eccentric recently, that's why) but at some point I will need a break from that. Best of luck with Pillars, I know a few people who think very highly of it.

I played Mutant Year Zero last year thanks to it being an Epic Games Store freebie and while I have next to no experience with the genre I found it to be pretty fun in a puzzley kind of way. I suggest abusing every advantage you get and being as unfair as possible, I'm not sure if it is possible to get through every encounter without taking any damage but you can get pretty close if you don't screw up too bad. I screwed up too bad more than I'd like to admit >_>

Also I never played the original Toki Tori but I think its sequel may be a legit overlooked classic.

I didn't even think to see if there was a 100% ending for Axiom Verge as it felt like there wasn't anything else to add in. Checking it out via youtube (I got 70-ish% on my first go round as I made a wrong turn near the end and accidentally wandered the whole world, I am content with that amount) does add a bit of a twist, although I must admit that the story was a bit of a secondary concern to me overall. The funny thing is that I sat there deciding whether to play Axiom Verge or Environmental Station Alpha, so we were rather close to ending up unintentionally synced up there.

I am a big puzzle fan so I am a bit biased, but through the first three and a half areas in Baba is You unless it suffers a big drop off later on I find it to be an easy recommendation. It's been pretty great up to this point, it can get rather tricky but it generally offers enough different paths that if you get stuck you have other avenues open to you. It has been just stupidly clever so far, the text gimmick is very robust and the puzzles built around it take full advantage of that fact. I'd say it is trending towards getting a 4+ star rating from me so... yeah, I'd say go for it.

...Worth noting is that I've had several people take my game recommendations and have them blow up in their faces over the years, so maybe also check with other sources as well
