Bosses can kill you as they're dying? Yeah, that's totally fair.
Didn't have the patience to find the secret or beat the last boss. He was incredibly frustrating. Also he had 11 HP left before I died again.. That was the last drop for me. Still a great game, back to the old retro years. Great upgrade system, sounds and song and ofcourse the sprites. Maybe I come back in the future to beat the boss, but for now im calling quits.
I beat the first level, collected crystals, couldn't get to level two, and couldn't upgrade at ALL....
Good stuff! Not the most sophisticated game, but fun and good gameplay.
While not a great game, I still found this to be good. I think it's mostly because of how it's interesting to see how the upgrades get better. It doesn't seem like much at first, but it does get more interesting. I appreciate how it's done in a simple manner, but is still complicated. You have little idea what enemy is going to show up next.
But yeah, it does take awhile for it to get really good. It's still worth playing. I like collecting all the little white pieces. Sometimes I'm too busy doing that to even pay attention to shooting the enemies. Automatic works the best as expected.
