Gish is the shit

#1 Posted by ectoplasma (980 posts) -

Seriously since I unlocked him I played alot of levels with gish. Basically everything that involves climbing. Sticky gish is just the best - makes me wanna pick up the indie title ;). So far I completed worls 1 with 100% and played though all the levels of 2 and 3. Now I'm going back to complete world 2 with 100%. Which characters do you guys like to play as?

From what I've played, I'm more a fan of meat boy but commander video has helped on some levels.

#3 Posted by ectoplasma (980 posts) -

Commander Video drives me crazy, I cant stand his floatiness. But Meatboy is a little faster than gish.

I used Commander to get a warp in Salt Factory that would be impossible to get with Meatboy. I myself think Gish is pretty cool, but too slow. 
 
You should try the game Gish, its pretty cool, but its really difficult.

I hate Gish. He just sticks to the wall instead of sliding up.

Btw. this one bandage at level 18 i think, in teh first world, can u get it with another character than gish? Im already stoked to unlock some more characters.

I tend to use Jill for collecting bandages, Gish is too slow to A+ stuff for me! Although I did use him on that level with the lasers.

I mainly use Meat Boy and The Kid. Love that double jump.

Yeah, come on everybody. Just use the kid like me and Valestis. It's not like he's mind-numbingly difficult to unlock or anything.

If you don't hold sprint down he slides up the walls as well.

I use meat boy must of the time ... I like using Jill for banadages  , tho I use Gish from time to time .... hate commander video and Alien Hominid

@Aetheldod:  my thoughts exactly, Jill is easily the best for grabbing bandages, and then I switch to meat boy to A+ the level

I hate meat boy! Gish is my favourite so far. Dying to unlock N, soo may bandages though.

#14 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4793 posts) -

Commander Video controls horribly! Jill's pretty cool though, good for some of the trickier bandages.

I tried Alien Hominid, couldn't seem to activate whatever special ability he has.

I mainly use Meat Boy for everything, save for the few bandages and warps he can't possibly get. I just got Tim last night, and so far am loving him for how useful he can be for getting bandages, so he's quickly becoming my 2nd most used character in this game.

Super Meat Boy and Ogmo 
 
 On part 2 of "The Kid" right now, So I may wave goodbye to Ogmo 
 
Also,  I friggin hate Gish

Gish is shit.

Gish hasn't quite struck it with me, but Ogmo is where it's at. I don't have "The Kid" or anything like that yet, so Ogmo has been my go to for bandages and tricky jump stuff. Unfortunately his vertical wall jump is super shitty, but I always welcome a good double jump.

Loving Kid definitely worth the effort for unlocking for some timed runs / warp zones, meat boy and Jill are my other go to ones for the time being 

#21 Posted by ectoplasma (980 posts) -

So I unlocked Jill and Alien Hominid. I think both are pretty usefull. I love how the characters are very usefull for certain circumstances. Alien hominid can shoot on the ground and gain leverage. Its the most easies pulled off, when u hold x and a pressed and then use the right trigger to shoot. Man my thumbfriggin hurts and I start to hitting a brick wall, dunno if i really unlock everything. Im on the 5th world now stuck on level 4 and I unlocked the light world stuff in world 2, but Im stuck on like level 4 in the dark world of world two (the propellerz). Man I dont know. Maybe I'm gonna hit couple youtube tuts. 
Also can anyone tell me how to finish that 4th level in the last world?

I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone say they use Flywrench, I find him sooooo useful! 
I normally use Flywrench or The Kid

#23 Posted by Sarumarine (2251 posts) -
@Lumley: 
I can't seem to get a handle on Flywrench's triple jump. Sometimes he pops up like I expect, other times he just kinda sinks like a rock. Does it have something to do with momentum?
#24 Posted by Nadril (531 posts) -

Aside from meat boy I'm using the kid and Jill a lot to get bandages. 
 
Figures after a few hours of unlocking kid I have to use him at least a bit to justify it :S.

You get the most out of your jump when Flywrench has completed his flapping animation. I can see him being useful, but he's so damn slow and floaty that I'll almost always take The Kid over him. 
 
That said, Flywrench is a pretty sweet free indie game, and worth a download.

I only used Gish for one particular level but I can see where he'd be useful in a few other spots. Anyone like using Tim? I unlocked him earlier today but haven't tried him out yet, hopefully he proves useful as I go through some dark world levels tomorrow.

You have to hold A and press X right after to get a really high jump you can also spam x to float down kind of like Jill but less powerfull

I come more and more to the conclusion that the game is not so much incredibly hard, but that you have to approach certain levels only with certain characters. Im loving it <3 :).

#29 Posted by Hao_Kaiser (31 posts) -

I've found Tim to be incredibly handy in a lot of spots. 
 
You can't get hurt while he's in his rewind animation, and if you double tap the button, he'll just say in place. It's really useful in a lot of the missile stages.  
 
I love how I like my favorite secondary character for the lamest, sissiest reason possible. 
 
Also, Spelunky seems neat, but I haven't really gotten to mess with him yet. 
 
And, despite all the trouble I went through to get him, I'm really not too fond of The Kid. :/
