If I can't get past it, I'll have to trash the game.
The lava is the single most annoying thing I've seen in a videogame in the past year or so - stuff that hurts a LOT when you run over it, but can't be removed. Yes, it's possible to fly around, but it's too hard to figure out where the bounding boxes are.
I can navigate mild lava okay, but the thick stuff that I apparently need to get by to get a blue gun is impassible. Is there some trick I've missed? (The part I refer to is in the big "lava field" in Volcano on the left side. I've explored both the right and the bottom, to my own disappointment. By the time you get to the bottom, your shields are so low that the shields provided do no good whatsoever, and the right side holds...nothing but a closed blue gate.)
I really want to buy this game, but I won't buy it if I can't even beat the demo. The learning curve for flying like this is huge - players without arcade reflexes will be at a total loss.
