Immediate questions: Why is Brix the stickguy so violently against comic book movies?
Why should I care about his hatred? And why on earth would we, the target audience, being nerds, not find this annoying and/or offensive in the first place? No reasons are given, and no plot is to be had in the entirety of the game, and I find myself caring not at all about when I die, nor do I feel a sense of achievement for defeating any of the given bosses. Except all the bosses are the same, anyway.

This is described as a shooter, but plays more like a bullet hell with an extra large hit box. The tracking is very imprecise and "floaty", so I found myself doing graceful loops around bullets with my mouse while "Brix" sort of... drifted through bullets? and died. alot.
The graphics look like they're meant to be a mockery of more modern graphics, but the 8 bit soundtrack clashes horribly, and covers all sound effects aside from the badly rendered "cling" of collected coins.
Normal enemies followed pre-arranged paths and scripts, and could easily be avoided for the most part.
The recurring boss swapped costumes alot, but never added anything new to its kit, making the fight repetative and bland. The fact that the boss dropped exactly the same amount of cash as the normal minions, and lack of explanation about why the bosses had to die (see above, to whit, lack of plot) meant there was no sense of accomplishment.

In fact, it felt like I played the same 2 levels 6 times in a row, to defeat the same guy with weird costume changes 6 times in a row, for no... particular... reason.

Major miss, people. Skip it if you can. (And I really really dislike whoever upvoted it enough for it to hit the front page.)

The game was fun for me and I'd have given it a five however there seems to be a glitch when I upgrade my fire power. Even though I have the say two hundred or four hundred coins necessary to upgrade I still seem to be put into this negative. Believe me it happened to me twice while upgrading my fire power and I found myself collecting coins not to upgrade but just to claw my way out of of the hole the game had put me into. It's made even worse when I finally reach level four and can't even make it mid way through the level via the fact I was unable to upgrade caused by the lack of coins the hole had put me into. I wish I could give this a five as it is fun but the glitch prevents me from giving this game the score it deserves.

Since I agree with a lot of the posts below me I'll just post about a bug I encountered. Upon completing the game I get the credits and normal background music running concurrently.
