Oh yeah... for those... You can use as much as 5 fingers on each hand and tap away, which is only possible with an ipad.

You can use 4 fingers on each of your hands and 2 more fingers from your little brother.

So Exact (and everyone else), whats your highest score on any stage (track 1 or 2)? I just got a 132k round....but I know there's a lot more to come cause I'm missing a lot on Hard. Also, whats your highest combo? I reached 237 earlier. I presume if you're really good and don't miss anything, getting combos into the 1000+ region is not all that far fetched.

Ok so today I went back to the game and I got through on Hard with Astaroth first time round....finally! Played the first 2 demons with her. Then went to Asmodeous but still felt difficult. Then went with the Italian dude for the 3rd boss (which is the italian himselfs) and managed to get through first time round. It is hard to understand how I got through the Italian first time round on hard when I actually only used him once previously in easy mode. Been using Asmodeous a lot through Easy and Medium yet cannot go through after a few tries (2 yesterday and one today). I think this is because of the higher DEF rating of Astaroth and the Italianos.

In any case, I came here to vent out my anger on one thing - the friggin boss battle are SO EASY!! I mean, it took me a while to get up and running with Astaroths beat on Hard, but I beat the first 2 bosses both on my first try. And with too much of health to spare. It was slower action too. God, I was expecting hell-like difficulty on the hardest mode. Even the 3rd boss was pretty easy. Does it get harder by the time you meet Astaroth?

^That's what i thought about hard mode bosses until i realized... It's because we are already a bit familiar with the music through easy and normal playthroughs.

This is similar to my Guitar Hero 3 experience where the first time I played Slipknot's Before I Forget on Expert mode i got 5 stars... All because i am too familiar with the song.

Come on, not true. I have NEVER used the character of the second demon (the one in the golden outfit with afro hair). And I only ever played the second demon twice - on Easy and Medium. I doubt I know the tune of the demon well.

Like I said, I am more accustomed to the beats of Serenity and Asmodous yet cannot use them on Hard just yet. I am comfortable with Astoroth on Hard and have used her often in this mode - but still playing Astoroths Track 1 is considerably harder than the Track 2 bosses.

I really think this is the game's undoing ultimately. Sad. Now I wish there was the Hell mode some guys were talking about earlier.

I guess you're being too hardcore. Not a bad thing, but it could make the game drag for you.

I think the game's hard mode is a good balance in difficulty without being frustratingly hard. In Guitar Hero and Rockband games, I fail a lot and the songs end in the middle. Here, you still have a good chance of completing the song, but you get lower scores unless you try to work it.

That's why the other music games have practice mode, and this one doesnt, as the others require memorization more than Demon's Score.

Yep. Even the end boss would be like a "6" in Jukebeat.

Inis's earlier games Ouendan 2 and Elite Beat Agents have a fourth difficulty it's really a shame that there doesn't seem to be one here.

SerenitySatan is hot btw I recommend forking out to unlock her.
