This is almost great. I like the art style, the music, the humor, all that stuff, but the actual gameplay is the problem.
First off, everything is cramped into the upper half of the screen. While I appreciate the dialogue at the bottom, I have no way of reading it because I'm to focuses on the action.
Also, the player character takes up too much space, I feel. It gets to the point where there is physically no way to avoid what is coming at you.
I dunno, maybe I just suck. Either way it is a decent game, just not an excellent one.
