Hmmmm. It's hard to say if that's a bug because it's kind of the whole point. :P I'm sorry if it ruined your experience though... hopefully you were still able to beat the stage? :S

The top spin has incredibly low damage and only moderate accuracy, but it keeps hitting indefinitely until it misses or the target is disabled. It is my opinion that this makes the ability very powerful in the right circumstances, but very unreliable in most others - just like the original Top Spin in the games.

I'll consider putting some kind of damage cap or lowering the accuracy, but I'd like to see what others think first. Anyone else feel like this ability is overpowered or do you think it's unreliable nature keeps it in balance? Please let me know!

I just lowered the accuracy from 76 to 70, so hopefully that helps a bit. I'm not sure if I should keep it like this for challenge or make it weaker for the sake of accessibility. :| I'll keep playing with it and update this thread if I make any changes. In the mean time, you should definitely use the Copy Shot to steal it for yourself. Can't hurt to have an ability with that much potential for yourself. :P

EDIT: I've also made it so that the accuracy of the ability goes down by one point with each hit until it reaches only 1%. This should further prevent it from OHKOing so often.

I think it should be a bit higher than 76. It is quite possibly the weakest move in the game at this point in time. It should be around 85, because here is how it goes:


2 dmg, 2 dmg, 3 dmg, 3 dmg, miss. That is compared to 50+ damage through normal BUSTER SHOTS.

Thanks for editing the Top Spin, because it happened to me on the extra stage with the high level robots, causing the damage from Top Man's Top Spin to do much more damage, and killing me. :( Now I shouldn't need to worry about playing the extra stage and seeing Top Man on the roster of the opponents.
