I started doing pass 3 on the levels.
This is the first balance and level fix phase.
One important thing that happened is that I removed the rocket launcher attack, and the freeze super power.
The reason is the game is action oriented, and having a lot of buttons to accomodate these doesn't work nicely.
Switching weapons in game with buttons is not good, slows the game and breaks the action.
Doing street fighter 2 moves to trigger special attacks doesn't work nicely.
So I made the decision that Shadow Gangs is a pure action game, and needs simple and rapid controls.
So now there is one button for jump, one for fire, one for the mine, and one for the Kanji super attack.
4 buttons, that's all, simple and effective.
