How difficult is Eliss?

I was considering purchasing this game but i looked at the reviews and many of them were complaining about the difficulty being so high that it makes the game near impossible around level 10 (some were whining about it being too hard at level 3). I don't want to spend $4 on something that I'll find too frustrating and never come back too. Just how hard is the game?

i was on the edge about purchasing this game for about 2 weeks and finally caved. it is a GREAT game. it is very difficult, but why have an easy game. im only on level 5 and i play it when i get a chance to sit down and try to tackle a level. so far not close to impossible but i cant speak for any level beyond 5. just my experience, i think its for sure worth picking up. hope i helped a bit

very very hard but very very fun. i have been stuck on level 9 forever. if you don't like hard games, you probably wouldn't like it. but its fun and unique and enjoyable

It's one of the toughest games I've tried. I don't know if its Fast Lane difficult, but it's up there.

It's not impossible, though. I'd still recommend it.

It is very difficult. Level 3 is really hard, but once u get passed it, it gets pretty easy till level 8. I would never com back to play it but the music and visuals are so good!!

They're about equal, IMO. They're not the same kind of difficult, though.

I can tell you that this game is relally, really hard so if you don't like challenges don't get it coz it's not for you
I was on the edge of getting this one a couple weeks ago when the 5-hour sale ended but I still got it and there are no regrets
Right now I'm stuck ok level 12 and try it more than 5 times a day but still can't get through it but I still recommend this game a lot

Waiting for: Plants vs. Zombies, Cogs, Riddim Ribbon

It is difficult, but it is also very innovative, so it is worth the trouble, IMO.

Now Playing: Vietnam '65 | .Decluster | BP2Black | Monster Hunter Freedom Unite | Banner Saga | Ultimate General Gettysburg | Papers, Please | SmartGo Kifu | Crowntakers | Brogue | FTL
