I will admit defeat when I know I can't win. Butcher is mean. Butcher is brutal. Butcher is a tough as nails 2D version of my favorite 3D arcade shooters. I didn't think it was possible for a platformer to feel like it belongs in that genre.

It never stops and never lets you breathe. I can only take so much of it, but dammit, Butcher, I respect you. I want to get better, but I don't think it wants me to get better. Even if the developer ended up making an "easy mode" after launch, I know what the real game is. I'm not ready for it, and I'm ok with that. Thanks for destroying me, Butcher.
