Wow, that was one very strange game. I think it's safe to say Tom Fulp appears most frequently under inspirations. I personally did not find this to be all that good. I guess this is at least done in the style of Newgrounds. It was nice to learn some history, not that I didn't know that stuff already. It was too strange to recommend.
This is the first time I saw the medals show up below. They didn't even show up in the actual game! I heard the sound, but that was it. Maybe it was intentional? The shotguns didn't seem to work.
