This game is sweet!

Some might ask: Is the game as awesome as the trailer wants us to believe? Yes, every bit of it, BUT it's one of the shortest games I have ever played. To me, it is satisfying enough to maintain a decent replay value. On normal difficulty I would say that you might need an hour to finish the game from the beginning to the end. This game has rather poor animations and colour depth, a nice retro soundtrack, and excellent gameplay. If you need a challenge willing to revisit the game on it's hardest difficulty, then the sweet gameplay is all you need. If you're not the kind of person who enjoys playing the same levels multiple times, then you probably should stay away from it.

There are only seven short levels, but with with a lot of mini bosses and of course an end boss in each level. The bosses are this game's highlight. In fact, you will spend more time fighting them than fighting through the levels. Non of the difficulty settings are really hard and you probably will not be frustrated at all when playing the story mode, because of its MANY check/spawn points. On the other hand there is the arcade mode that will unlock after you have completed the game once.
In order to 100% the game you have to beat the arcade mode on the hardest difficulty level, which is one of the most difficult tasks I have ever encountered. The game itself has an extremely stylish gameplay. There are no excuses to hide behind. Just you, the game and a 100% skill. I played it using a gamepad and have to say that there's nothing to complain about the controls. It is responsive, fast and it makes you feel like a blockbuster hero.

I would argue that the main character of this game is even better at jumping and shooting than megaman. high energy, great sound track, and probably the best short game i've ever played. I just wish is was longer :C

Does murdering all the other heroes really make you a true hero?

In this case, yes. It's a really well-put-together run-and-gun platformer with great controls, fun bosses, and an amusing main character. I was surprised to hear this was an XNA port!

I just caught this on sale for $2. The first level alone was worth the $2.

Buy. This. Game.

It's a hidden gem of twin stick, shooty, dodgey, platformy, bullet timey goodness.
