|Now I'm liking the story mode a lot more than I thought I would... I just found out that each level has a research note in it to find somewhere. I had to go back through the first 4 levels again and search them out. Suddenly these linear stages became a lot more interesting since now I'm always looking around for a hidden thing to find.|
Then later in world 2, there's a non-linear arena stage where the path to the goal is easy, but there are humanoid octolings fighting you all over the place. Also there's a level that makes use of the tutorial area, with a miniboss at the end.
