Although that game doesn't work properly anymore on newer systems. :-(
Three stars from me; difficulty jumps up on third level way too much, the shot window is miniscule. Yeah, I guess I just should "git gud." Less voice loops would be optimal. I get weird lines on my end, that could be due to refresh rate difference?
I didn't get a checkpoint, would have wanted to get to the end, but I'm on the similar line with JeffreyDriver.
I could spot body armor but it seemed like on stage three you just have to be damn good.
It's a decent effort! :-)
