Issues unresolved[edit]

Missing terrain[edit]

There are parts in game where environment vanishes. This happens randomly and mostly after dying in certain part[2]
New patch supposedly fixed this but some users still are still experiencing this. Devs are working for next patch[3] which should also fix it for all the recent savefiles without having to restart[4]
If this happens only workaround at the moment is restart level and levels are lengthy. Playing without dying is best workaround.

"The Rhythm Leecher" enemy not working[edit]

There's an enemy called "The Rhythm Leecher" which you can hit in rhythm to advance. However, sometimes it simply refuses to take hits at all and usually killing it is required to advance in game[5]
This seems to be problem with restarting/resuming game at point where Leech is present.
If this happens only workaround at the moment is restart level and levels are lengthy. Playing whole level through before quitting is best workaround.
