For those who think Story+ is too hard, the trick is to avoid the powerups and let them accumulate until things get really tight. You only need to reach the boss, not beat him, if you reach him you'll have the option to "Retry Boss"

ok. i hate shoot-em-ups.

that said, this game was done very well. full 5 stars for clean pixel art, no bugs, good scaling of upgrades, and general game balance. and the best part of this game: the plot twist. awesome. you did alot with the limited amount of plot you used here, and ended things with a very thought provoking ending.

your story-telling talents are so good, my first thought was wondering if you might have made any games with heavier storytelling. if you haven't, please do. twitchy games are ok, but my favorites are more intelligent genres. looking forward you seeing if you do empire builders, or turn based games, too.
