Even after playing castle crashers for quite a bit and leveling up some of my characters, I am still having problems with the beefy versions of enemies that you run across every now and then.
I'm talking about enemies like the one on the bottom right in the following image:
Seeing how they can take quite a beating, do not really seem to be stunned by melee attacks and can simply pick you up and throw you away, I spend most of my time running away from them and using my magic every now and then until they die. Not very heroic, and very difficult if there are many bad guys around to interfere.
So my question is, is there something I'm missing here, or must I rely on ranged attacks to take them down without getting pummeled?
