I love this game. It's full of everything I love: Mobsters, 8-bit everything, the Tommygun! This game is epic to the top degree! The only Issue I have is that the soundtrack to this game isn't in the music section here on Newgrounds. I love the title theme especially and listen to it while working on projects. That would be my only request. Upload the soundtrack onto the music section. As for the game itself, it's challenging, interesting, and most importantly, fun! 5 stars.

Loved it. However; needs more levels and more bosses. Also, the ability to control movement with one hand and utilize the mouse to aim would add more to the game. Still, great!

Excellent theme, great noir-movie type feeling, sounds and music were awesome, this is a great platforming game, the only complaint is the unavoidable damage you are bound to take from EVERY enemy. But, with how spread out the vending machines are it can be overlooked, great job.
