Nice amount of detail
This was a nice game to play because it was simple with its style but still not an easy game. I am surprised at myself for managing to get past the first boss the first time I tried on hard mode! The music is also nice and sets a good tone. I think there might be something wrong with the bullets, because they keep just jumping around everywhere. I suppose that might be part of hard mode. Whatever the reason, this is still a playable game and one that I would recommend.
I can understand why the medals are not worth that much, as the game is not hard. I seem to have died and not received that medal. Oh well, this is good for a quick play because you get a good clear look at what is coming ahead of you and can prepare yourself. While not the most detailed, it does not have to be elaborate to be playable. Not one of your best games, but still good.
