hopefully there will never be achievements for this game, that way nobody will ever have a reason to play it
5 Jan 17:21 2017
Well, I have to make achievements for this game. It's been requested several times, and several people have given up on it, so it must be done. I'm sorry!
5 Jan 21:24 2017
Great Scott!
6 Jan 0:50 2017
I know, it's heavy.
18 Jan 22:08 2017
I'm glad the developers created the 'Mute Music' cheat: Pause, hold b then unpause while holding b. :D
19 Jan 2:24 2017
Yup, and then you can just play the top-down-shooter music of your choice in place of it. =D
26 Jan 10:47 2017
This game's music is ear cancer.. thanks sireture for the fix, but overall, just avoid this game.

I came here for reassurance. I couldnt be the only one who thinks this game is garbage. How come great movies in the 80s had so many shit games?

I Think You Mean Johnny Be GREAT, Scott (10) (42)Never miss ANY music note at the dance!Not Work!!!!!
18 Aug 9:06 2019
Why this terrible game merits 600 points is beyond my understanding, especially when 120 of those points are tied up in not hitting a specific type of enemy for no real reason.
27 Aug 22:48 2019
I Think You Mean Johnny Be Great, Scott(10) not working
