wow. still shocked this game never got any medals. it always seemed like a game that was ripe for it. anyway, i always thought this particular entry was way more fun than it's successor, mostly because that game went way over the top with upgrades, but also because this title just felt that much more natural. and although i can gladly say i hope never to have to blast through at least 10 bosses on Insane Endless Mode to earn a badge again (Kongregate), i still come back around and play the game from time to time. it's just that fun.
