Alrighty, feedback time for the second mode! Hope you don't mind the wall of text I'm about the throw :p.
(Oh and for anyone who hasn't played the game, spoilers are up ahead so play first read later please. Trust me on this one)
For the record: I got up 60 times and it took about 30-50 minutes.
Random thought: I was going to write "I got kicked down" instead of "I got up". Saying I got up actually made me feel way better about getting destroyed.
For all bosses I felt like there was too much going on, especially for the special attacks. On the third one's special attack it was actually not that bad and it was a lot of fun, I think that's because of how rhythmic it was.
Another thing, the targeting attacks that the second and third boss used were really frustrating to me, because they made no sense to me and made my little monkey brain angry because it couldn't find a proper pattern.
The keyboard layout is still kind of odd and makes it difficult to play. Just an option to switch to something like zxc instead of xcspace would be helpful. Having the jump placed on space made me neglect it for practically the whole game, and only using the roll actually went fine for me.
Tiny thing, the elevator is drawn in front of the sword fx while the ground is drawn behind which is a bit meh.
Another tiny thing, most attacks don't cancel when you defeat the boss so for the long attacks so they keep playing during the "finish" sequence.
The audio gets pretty crowded in the more dense parts, might be something to think about.
Now this is very much a taste thing, but I really like when things are pretty strict patternwise, so I would have liked the attacks to be a bit more strict in how they go. That would make it more predictible for me and would just make things a tad less random-feeling. Once again, that's a thing that is very subjective.
The laser attack for the third boss is really weird, it's super awkward that it is red, as red always has been a telegraph for something up to that point.
The third boss getting up so many times were really suprising to me but I liked it. The last one's final phase (I have no idea if that is the right spelling, I don't know if it's phase or faze or fase or whatever) actually made me let out a lil "oh fuck yeeeeee" before absolutely kicking my ass for ten minutes.
The second boss's style also got me this time, I just found him to be pretty funny. That was really nice after the previous asswhooping.
Oh sweet bloody floor, I think that's all. I hope so at least heh. It was nice to come back to this, great work with it!
Last thing, can I remix the last song?
