For "Collect X cards" missions, ignore as much enemy as you can. The more you kill them, the more they spawn and the harder the mission becomes. As much as possible, just let cards kill them and avoid swinging your sword.

Is no one else using those?
Ive been using the 50% evade Helmet and everything else are +hearts. Works fine so far, even if i havent maxed out all my upgrades yet.

^this

using level up accessories will only make 1-2 Cards stronger at the cost of 2-4 hearts... It's best to use Heart equips and the 50% Dodge helmet since that helmet means you can theoretically have 50% more hearts...

iCade

Tried it on iCade and soon as I pressed jump once, he kept on jumping. It didn't detect that I released the jump button.. even if I pressed and released it again.. just kept on jumping.. made for some interesting gameplay, though.

Do the skill cards still give you the + bonus even if your skill is maxed out already?

Ok, this game is fun, but there is definitely some wonkiness with the controls. Often I seem to get stuck on a platform edge and then jump, jump, jump and then I go up and I seem to float like I'm on the moon. LOL. Hopefully that gets fixed in the update. Also the controls are uncomfortable on iPad, but I see that's going to get fixed with adjustable controls.

Thanks for the tips on the get 50 cards mission. I've been stuck on that one for a while. It seems I've been killing too many enemies.
