Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Nope. You still charge around like a madman.
It might not seem like it but there is actually a "system" in place. Hitting enemies head on is never good. It's best to hit them from behind or from the side, but when that's not possible, hitting them with your shield works as well.
And just in case "hit them with your shield" is unclear, I mean to say that you should try to be kind of off-center when approaching an enemy from the front, so that the "shielded" part of your sprite it what touches them. then you can just run them down.
