Succeeds where Xiao Xiao 4 failed!
Everything was going reasonably smoothly until I approached the final hallway, at which point enemies started swarming up close, blocking off my field of vision and shielding the men firing from the back. It ultimately took me 4 tries to beat this game, and even then with a single health bar left. It's difficult, but far from impossible, which is just the right amount of challenge needed to keep this game interesting.
For those who are having difficulties completing the game, keep at it! Once you get to the poster with the ugly looking man, victory is just around the corner.
There will inevitably be comparisons to Xiao Xiao 4, but in my honest opinion, this is a far superior stickmen shoot-em-up. I know that a credible story is pretty much an after-thought with these interactive games, but I found the premise of this "mission" oddily interesting. The fact that it's a heroine seeking to rescue a loved one makes it that much more personal.
Kudos on a job well done! This is the only game on NG that has successfully grabbed my interest for quite a while now. Here's hoping for a sequel. ^^
"Xiao Xiao 4 as it should have been."
