Your article is incredibly instructional! Looking at your work has enlightened me. Learned a lot from it. I will store your website and will continue to browse your upcomi-- I mean what I'm no spambot who gave you that idea?
I don't actually know if there's any other way to play Ness other than spamming PK Fire. That would be like saying you're NOT supposed to use the Falcon Punch at every available opportunity. And that would be ridiculous!
Agreed, tutorials are a necessary part of game design. Some games just manage to craft tutorials in an entertaining and game-y way-- an example I like to use is Portal, whose entire first half is basically all tutorial, but doesn't feel like it because of how those tutorials are designed.
