You can unlock the first part of chapter 9 with less but about halfway through there is another barrier that requires 15

I just got to here and wtf it's only halfway?? god damn

But yeah 4 hearts for chapter 8 sounds right. And there's nothing extra required for chapter 9 after that. But the B sides do need it.

Yup skipped it... this second half might be too hard

Honestly I never beat chapter 9 either, like 2/3 of the way through I just turned on assist mode to see the ending

It sucks because I can tell that the entire level is really well thought out but it's just too hard for me

Without spoiling too much, are the chp 8 and 9 endings part of the plot, or more just like a "wow u r awesome gamer, here's a cute little scene"?

Chapter 8 has almost nothing in the way of story. Chapter 9 does have a story but it's entirely extra and not really related to the 1-7 plot.

Chapter 8 is "woo you did it", Chapter 9 is self contained epilogue

Haha I think you and I finished at the same time

Definitely going for chapter 8 and 9 though. I'm pretty hooked.

Nice! Seems fitting because I think it was your post that reminded me about the physical edition

Also, regarding chapter 8 and 9-- same. Definitely gonna try to complete what I can.

I honestly didn't find the main game difficult at all. Perhaps recently beating Super Meat Boy through the dark ending has battle hardened me.

Haha, weirdly I was thinking that this was finally scratching the Super Meat Boy itch. The B-Sides definitely have the same level of difficulty as some of the dark world levels.

The main game is definitely not meant to be very difficult. I thought some parts of chapter 7 got pretty hard though. Enough to make it feel like a climax at least. The bonus levels get exponentially harder for sure. Not necessarily in a fun way though.

Holy crap you weren't kidding about the difficulty spike on the b-sides. I'll be using the double dash assist mode for these first few...

Yeah, the first few B-sides are rough. I'd say 2B is probably the easiest? I remember 5B being somewhat manageable as well (in addition to having the best theme in the game). The rest are tough as nails.

On Chapter 9 - stopping 2/3 into Chapter 9 is a bit of a shame because the middle part of the Chapter is definitely the hardest section of the level IMO. The difficulty scales down noticeably in the last 25% or so (though the final room can be a pain, admittedly).

Chapter 9 is still consistently harder than anything else in the game, and stays punitively harsh for longer than anything else, though a few individual rooms in some of the other levels can rival it. It's more a test of persistence and grit.

I think 90% of my deaths in the first half of 9 were in the last 4 levels

Chapter 8 was fun.

Just got past the five locks part of chapter 9. Chapter 9 feels a lot more puzzley in terms of figuring out how the mechanics work and can be used to get past certain parts.

Question-- when it stops me for not having 15 hearts, is there a save point there? I assume there is, but wanted to make sure I don't have to repeat stuff needlessly

agreed, one of the first things i thought about chapter 9 was "this feels more like every room is a puzzle"

but i also agree with the last segment scaling the difficulty down, and i actually think this is a brilliant design decision - after working your way through some of the toughest rooms in the game, you are given the reward of one final stretch where you get to fly through everything and feel great doing it. in fact, the final room is sort of designed in the same way - the beginning section is hard, but once you get to the vertical part it eases up, and you likely won't die more than a couple of times in the final segment

Got to the 15 heart gate. The last screen before that point definitely took me many tries. Now at 5000+ deaths.

Now to get the remaining 7 hearts.

Man chapter 3 is just the best. Is this what the persona games are like? In terms of atmosphere I mean

I dunno. It just seemed like a mix of creepy and funny in a very Japanese way.

Finished up to the sixth C-Side over the last week or so, probably going to try the rest tomorrow

I'd like to beat chapter 9 for real at some point but even if I do finish all the C-Sides I don't have high hopes, it's such a long level
