Who has beat Gish?

Phew. Finally beat the game. Those hell levels are a bitch-and-a-half. Took me about 5-6 days total, playing on and off.

A level editor has me absolutely panting in anticipation, though. You could do *so* much cool stuff with this game it's not even funny.

I bought it a few days ago, and immediately started playing it. After, I think, about 3-4 hours playing I got the good ending. That amount of time includes a huge mistake at the last level...

I could get her into the pit fairly easily (switch at the right, luring her into the closed pit (if you do it very careful she can get stuck), switch again), but I didn't notice the button at the top left. I was trying different timing etc, because I thought it was the only way. But now it really begins... I finally noticed the button at the top left, but I accidently pulled it out of the ground a bit, after which it didn't act like a button (and I couldn't see what happened with the pit)... I thought I needed to do something with that, so I tried to get the whole thing out of it for minutes. Once I got the button out of it (!) it was floating in the air, only able to move horizontally (it's pulled to a specific Y location with lots of force). I started trying messing with the switch again, but combined with the floating button. Something actually happened with the pit, but I didn't know exactly why (when interacting with it it waves up and down a lot, so it's hard to figure out). After trying various other things I finally found that moving it below the position it's pulled to opens the pit, so I tried to get that super-slippery thing (no single wall is even 1/4 times as slippery) that is pulled with lots of force to that Y location below the bar (so it can't move up again). After lots of tries I got it below the bar, but it was rotated too much, so it moved out of that position! After getting the same result a few times I finally managed to get it at the right position, and the pit remained open! I could finally end the game...

I can't really explain what's so difficult about it, so try for yourself. ;-)

I accidently did it again. Some screenshots:


Just floating there (pulled to that Y location), and very slippery.


The only way to permanently open the pit.

Finally beat the game.

Have you also found all of the Warp Zones?
(3 Classic-Games and 2 Devil Islands)

I've played the game through two times now,
second with finding every secret and two Warp Zones,
but it seems like I'm not getting anything in reward. '<img'>

Any ideas or helping hints?

Finally beat Gish. Whew! The 7 planes were a major pain!
Rapture was just kind of annoying, interesting though. The
end surprised me.

-=-Spoiler:-=-
Too short. I was sitting there: "What's after rapture?!" Then
it ended. How annoying.

It needs a level editor. Right now the game is just worth the
money. With the editor, it would be worth much more.

Once the editor is there, if there is a campaign maker, then
the game will have much more value, maybe the community
could make an expansion together.

I finally managed to beat the game without killing Hera! I tossed a block up to press down the switch (Hera was at the lower level, not above the lava pit), went down with Hera, and when she tried to run me over I used heavy/hard mode to bounce her up onto the right side of the second level, and then hurried over to the right to get Brea. Hera tried to follow me, but just ran into the right wall on the second level. I caught Brea and took her to safety, with Hera still up on the second level safe and sound!  ':cool:'

Unfortunately, there is no special ending for both Hera and Brea surviving, as I had previously thought  '<img'>  It still gave me the same old "some say you can hear her screams from the depths..." blurb. Rather disappointing. I was hoping for something like "Gish knocked talked some sense into that crazy ho, Hera, and she stopped bothering Gish and Brea, who lived happily ever after."

Maybe in the next version...?

Unfortunately not. I can't even find both secrets on 1-1. I've got one Warp Zone, and both endings. That's about it.

beat gish 3 days after days after i bought it.(did not played all the time of course,spent quite some time making a fan art for gish that i sent to the site but i did not got any answer '<img'>  ).
7 planes is the hardest part of the game. and i was disapointed that hera was the last boss, i thought there was gonna be something somewhat bigger... and i already knew hera from the versus mode, so i had no surprise.
great game anyway,really needs the editor (i know it has been said hundreds of times '<img'>   but it would add a lot !)
still, there are some bugs with collisions, died a lot when just jumping on small surfaces, or did not took any damages while run over by giant rocks while in heavy form.
excellent work anyway!

It took me a couple days. The hell levels were the hardest, I'd say. Fun game but disappointingly short.

In its current state I would say it isn't worth the money. If there were a level editor -- official Chronic-Logic or not -- it would really increase the game's value.

You lose you energy when some part of Gish is too flat. And you get very stretched (=flat) when you jump on a small surface...

or did not took any damages while run over by giant rocks while in heavy form.
That's what heavy is meant for. 4-7 proves that. Try 3-7 if you want to test the limits. '<img'>
(btw, I know you can do some really strange things while being heavy, including tarball mating)

The replays are written to gish/replay/username-levelnumber.gre. In Gish you only need to type something like Jonathan-10. You have to figure out which number is for which level yourself...

i still think its strange sometimes, got killed once while just sliding down the wall in the "U" thing (in level 5-3 i think)
i dont think we r meant to be invincibible when heavy,or it would not have much interest to have a big rock pursuing you...
i can lose 50 hp when falling not too fast on a corner while a monster will deal about 10 damage  :I
ok i stop criticizing here, the physical motor of this game is amazing.
