Great reimagining of a classic genre of game. Its level pacing is tense,fast-paced, with few, but very much appreciated, bonus modes in the middle of the levels to give you a brief respite from the frantic action. The game switches between different perspective approaches depending on area, giving you more than one style of play to keep things interesting, including side scrolling, top-down, and the thankfully brief "over the shoulder" forward-facing views. The challenge of the levels scales fairly fast, with the all too easy first level and its way too easy boss, the second with slightly more compentent enemies and a more challenging boss, and with the third level , things start to get progressively more insane, As you play the game, you unlock more continues and more shield points to take you further into the game.
After about 8 hours of repeat playing to get a full initial shield bar I beat the final boss. so the game is kinda short, possibly shorter for players more familiar with the genre, but does offer decent replay value in the form of online score boards and unlocks, This game might not seem as good a value in gameplay hours as some other games, but definitely worth buying anyway with how fun and challenging it is. Its great for when you only have time for a really quick gaming session.
