Took me a day to beat it but it was pretty tough. Then I set it on Expert mode and that made it a bit harder, especially when your weapon gets downgraded after you take too much damage. Ouch. But i'm good at these games so I mastered it pretty quickly. Anyway, it's a great game for passing the time so thanks a lot! I still play this like once a day, if I can. My strategy: Use the green weapon until the final boss, then switch to the Red. Crazy? Nope! I beat the final boss when the counter hit 79 with that weapon. In other words, I blew his sorry butt up when he showed up the second time.
