|So I just found out the Harpy's attack is completely broken, it kills enemies in one hit... Also the spider venom is a projectile, making most enemies that are dangerous to attack close-range into a joke... The last level of the game was a cakewalk because of this.|
Also I did get stuck for a bit on the part where you have to destroy the steam engine... I couldn't figure out where the things you had to destroy were, until I checked a walkthrough and found out you had to use the monkey to get into some very easy to miss corridors.
I liked how the first game was ridiculously hard to the point that even just navigating the world and backtracking to collect stuff during the day/night cycles was an endurance run... But then near the end of the game you gain the Harpy transformation which makes navigating the world 1000x easier and it's like an amazing feeling suddenly being able to steamroll over everything casually and go anywhere in a fraction of the time it used to take.
