Struggle Guy is a 2D sidescroller which, fortunately, seems to redeem from former similar games. First off, because it doesn't have the "endless" label on it, thus letting us enjoy to beat different stages in increasing difficulty. Secondly, because there are no unicorns involved; and lastly because there's been a good level design job to make this game enjoyable by kids and adults alike and being challenging at the same time.
The array of moves and their combinations is quite ninja-like, so game can be quite trick at the beginning. Nonetheless, once you get the hang of it you'll enjoy combos like jump-dash-jump-dash-dive-slide and lose a lot of lives for overexcitement. Movements are done swiping on the screen.
On the other hand, there are only less than 40 stages, divided among four worlds or environments and two game modes (normal and timed). Fortunately, there's a story behind, funny enough to make you reach the higher levels and completely unfold it.
