When this first came out on steam they only gave you 20 continues to beat the game. That was a huge problem considering this is the most brutally hard and unfair game of all time. One-hit deaths, screen filled with bullets and enemies, and a thousand BS ways to die even if you know the patterns. Not even Silver Surfer or Battletoads for nes can touch this game's difficulty. Since then it has been updated to include what it should've had in the first place, an infinite continue option to simulate being at the arcade and feeding as many quarters as we want into the machine and not be limited to only 20 quarters. When it was without infinite continues, I had gotten to the last boss and died and quit playing the game for good. I just found out they updated it and finished the game. Without the infinite continue option I definitely wouldn't recommend this because all that does is brings back days of horror of putting a quarter in this arcade machine and losing both lives in about ten seconds because they go into the game options in the arcades and jack up game's difficulties to make people have to spend more money. We didn't know that back in the day so we would have to spend dollar after dollar to beat even one level. I usually stuck with more fair games like SF2 or whatever.
Anyway, it is cool now that it gives you unlimited continues. I would appreciate it if in the future they don't try to turn my PC into a simulation of being at the arcade when I was 14 and not being able to play enough because my mom didn't give me enough quarters before she left.
I know a lot of people consider it a classic mega hit, but to me it is just a reminder that some old arcade games were just designed to steal your money unfairly. 7/10
