This was a surprisingly engaging game. It was fast-paced, and I liked the retro look to it. My only complaint is that it seems a bit glitchy. I couldn't make it past Stage 3 because halfway through the spaceship flight, my character clipped through the bottom of the ship to his death, even though I refilled my fire along the way. This happened twice, and I got a game over. Other than that, though, it's a pretty good game.
Thanks for the review!
[Re-editing my previous response: I actually found the problem you were discussing this time... it seems to happen when I have bad internet. I don't really know what to do about it. Sorry, I know this answer is unsatisfactory.]
The game is fun. I just think the background music was too loud. But it may just be my opinion. :)
I really appreciate your feedback! I didn't even notice how loud the background music was. But you're right. I play this game at a lower volume than other games which is not a good thing. Thanks!
