Cannot advance. Platforming is awful.
I thought the part where you had to scale the tower was bad; bad camera angles and wonky direction controls had checkpoints reloading more times than I care to recollect, but that pales in comparison to the dam escape at Alkali Lake.
I've died about 30 times already. A fraction of a second too late on the jump? Plummet. Captured. A fraction of a second too early? Plummet. Captured. Have made it past the first jump many times, but never landed the second; luck won't hold out that long.
I've died more from platforming in this game than in Mario titles. The platforming sections of this game are about to make me shelve it. Am I the only one loathing this aspect of this game? Is there a trick to passing the dam that I'm missing?
Edit: 40+ deaths later, made it. Awful: either the game's platforming, or my play. Maybe both.
