Complaints by players that the first Hotline Miami was “too easy” will be addressed in the sequel, with developer Dennaton Games promising the addition of an unlockable Hard Mode.

Earning a C+ or better on any level allows you to retake the level in Hard Mode, where enemies will be more difficult to defeat and certain abilities will be removed, such as the ability to lock onto an enemy.

“In normal mode, it’s pretty much the same [as Hotline Miami],” said developer Dennis Wedin to Polygon. “We will add a hard mode to the game, like in the way Super Meat Boy works.

“We wanted to give them (the players) something more. Also, all the players trying to beat the world record or top the leaderboards — we wanted to give them more stuff to be good at.”

Hard Mode is still being finalised, but Wedin describes it as “very hard”.

Can’t stand games that require you to finish it in order to make it harder. Just give me retardedly hard off the bat, I’ll be happy with that.

 

artfuldodger,

Damn you Max Payne! *Shakes fist*

 

Gotta find time to beat the addictive first one before I get addicted to the second. Only so many hours in the day.
