To be honest I feel the controls are extremely awkward and stiff. They don't feel responsive at all and I keep dying due to basic lack of control of my character, and I'm not exactly new to platformers - they're my favourite genre and I've played near every metroidvania you can think of that's half-decent.
I see a lot of people talking about Melee, so maybe that's something I'm missing, but I used to play Melee a lot as a kid and never had any problems with the controls.
Specific greivances I have:
Only two jump heights instead of variable heights - very awkward when trying to platform precisely. Hard to time shots correctly with the gun to hit targets and such
Walking/Dashing is very awkward feeling and the gap between speeds is too big
Default xbox control scheme is super weird - B and Y to jump? Why? And if I remap it it changes which buttons I use to navigate the menu too which is super annoying.
The game in general seems cool and I like a lot of the mechanics in theory, but to me the gamefeel is so off that I just can't enjoy it. I died in some room where glowing floor and wall panels hurt you because I find it near impossible to accurately navigate around platforms with these controls.
