Forums  /  I Wanna Be The Boshy  /  Help I'm new

I've recently picked up Boshy to play in class, but I'm clueless. I'm playing through on easy mode and no set of controls seems to feel right. I also would like to speed run the game in the future, but I have no idea how. I don't know if anyone is still active on this, but if someone could give me some pointers on how to speed run the game, plus what set of controls I should use and how to use them that would be greatly appreciated.


For platforming watch this:

For controls, do whatever works well for you. A lot of people play with Jump and Movement keys on the same hand, so they can focus on shooting with their other's not required though. A few control setups are:
WASD for movement, Backspace to Shoot
Arrow keys for movement, Shift to Shoot
Arrow keys for direction, Spacebar to jump, E to shoot (this is what I do, don't copy this, it's bad)

For bosses: Don't use Double Shot (bind Up or Down to the same button as Shoot) on Hello Kitty, Skeleton King or Shang Tsung. You can freely use it on every other boss. Once you beat the game you unlock a boss rush, so practicing becomes a lot more comfortable.


Thanks, that really helped. I was just wondering, by binding a key do you just mean setting that as your button to shoot, or something else? I have my control scheme with S as jump, Up Arrow as shoot, D as reset and arrow keys as movement, which is currently working okay for me.


You can open the control menu with CTRL + Y. In there, you put Up or Down to the same button as Shoot. Then you will shoot 2 bullets at once.
