As you might have guessed from the title, today's update is about the new and 2nd playable character that has been added to Starsss!
But before we do so, let's go through the characters' names! Now if it was not mentioned before, the first playable character's name is Beat!
As shown in the new character selection screen above, Beat is a balanced character where your health (HP) and mana (MP) starts off with the same amount. This means that he is a great introductory character to start the game with (albeit the fact that he is the only one unlocked from the start).
On the other hand, Ro, the 2nd and new playable character of Starsss, is a character that you have to unlock by clearing the first (brick) world.
Ro also has more mana but significantly less health. In that sense Ro can be considered a more difficult character to play as compared to Beat. However, once you have unlocked Ro (from defeating Big Teeth), and have spent some time with him, you will notice that his huge mana pool gives him an offensive advantage.
You might also have noticed by now that when you select a character in the character selection screen, you can see a line in the character's description which starts off with a S in a circle. This is a secret for now but rest assured that it is coming soon!
