      I've been playing it, I like the aesthetics and the theme but the action is very simplistic. I think I'd like it quite a bit more if the game had like, jumping, or a light and heavy attack so you can vary combos based on which order you hit the buttons. Action is kinda just hitting one button until something attacks you (dodge) or one of the other buttons lights up (special attack, character switch attack, ultimate attack)

      Game feels like it was designed to extract money from people because it literally was designed for that
