The demo might have been easier, y'know? Who's to say the game doesn't get stupid hard and fast-paced?
Consider me skeptical. If that many complained to warrant a patch, then I'm thinking the game might actually be a bit of a fuck in the ass. I know I'd complain, these types of games make me nervous... and I guess if the gameplay is as basic as a moving-block, tower-climber, Atlus saw fit to make it a hard one... probably on par with NES puzzlers.... brrrr..
