Under rating threshold (show) This game is 80% fun and 20% banging your head on the ceiling like an idiot, looking for secret passages.

Under rating threshold (show) I'm pretty sure that Runner mode should be renamed to "Fireworks Mode", cause that's what it sounds like if you have a fully upgraded spread gun :D

Under rating threshold (show) Tip. Play through once completely before coming back to find everything. Near the end you find a secret passage locator beam, and at several points during you find items that allow you to get to more places.

Under rating threshold (show) How to give yourself motion sickness: Grind the tadpole minigame for diamonds for 20 minutes, then focus outside the game window and feel your stomach lurch as your brain tries to figure out why your screen appears to be moving to the left and staying still at the same time.

Under rating threshold (show) I just uploaded an update with a few changes that you should see soon: Fixed freeze bug (if you click at the top of the screen), added story speed run times to high score board (sum of chapter times), fixed completion time and boss mode high scores, and decreased enemy spawn rate and speed in tadpole mode (so it's more fun and less frustrating). Thanks for the great suggestions and bug reports, your feedback is awesome!

Under rating threshold (show) A good tip so you don't have to bang your head in the wall...... Simply, shoot at the wall. If your "bullet" explodes when it hits, there is nothing there... but if the bullet doesn't seem to collide..........

Under rating threshold (show) After the first secret passage, I went crazy looking for them, not keeping count of my diamonds. I wondered why the bosses were so hard, only after 2 hours of play, i realized i never upgraded and had accumulated over 3000 diamonds. Remember to upgrade!!! lol

The first is near the start on the right just a couple screens up. The second is on the right side on the same screen as the checkpoint near the magnet power up. :)

Under rating threshold (show) I love almost everything about this game. It's extremely well done and addictive, and the classic art style fits it perfectly. I played through the whole story mode twice (the first time, and then again to find everything), played the mini games, beat boss rush, got the four achievements, and I loved everything but one thing... the end of the story. Seriously, what kind of sadistic jerk would make it end that way?? Why?? WHY?! I feel like I want to give it 3 stars just because of that ending, but it's too fun and too good to give any less than 4 stars. If the ending was better, it would be 10 stars (out of possible 5) hands down. Why did it have to end that way?! WHY??

Under rating threshold (show) @FlyFree12: Personally I like the rebound gun the best. It doesn't do as much damage as the prime, true; but the prime doesn't let you stand at the mouth of a passage, fire a few rounds, then stand back and watch the fun. And with autofire on, I can't even count how many times I just run around watching diamonds fall from killed monsters I never even see on-screen. As far as skills, you already have the main ones there. Attraction can be nice for early game when you don't feel like diving into lava for those last few diamonds, though. Also, Aegis is nice for not being chain-hit killed (somehow you get yourself backed into a corner, and every time you recover, you get hit again)

Under rating threshold (show) Great game, enjoyed earning all badges. IMO another game worthy of an Impossible badge. Speed run for both story mode and heroic boss run and very refined scores achieved in escape and both mini games. This game has so much more to offer than what is required for both Hard badges. Well made creative game, rated 5*'s

Under rating threshold (show) First, I find it funny that every level 1 comment is negative with no constructive input. Anyway the game is good, but it could use a bit more work with the areas before the bosses, It's a bit annoying to go backwards to get more diamonds or just keep fighting the boss and hope you get lucky. Other than that it was a great game, good level design, good music, 4.5/5
