hopefully there will never be achievements for this game, that way nobody will ever have a reason to play it

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!

I'm glad the developers created the 'Mute Music' cheat: Pause, hold b then unpause while holding b. :D

MGNS8M
Yup, and then you can just play the top-down-shooter music of your choice in place of it. =D

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?

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.
