Urgh. There really is no excuse for using checkpoint saving nowadays. Just forces you to redo a lengthy chunk of content over and over and over if you run into trouble or want to try something different, or need to stop playing for a while to do something different when not being near a checkpoint, which is just a boring waste of time. :/

But at least they can't use the "Save often and in different files" hint to work around a bug-ridden crash-prone game then...

There is no flight or jumping in the game, then? Strictly 2d movement?
