    Back from Gamescom, I'm a bit too tired for this old school shoot 'em up. But it's very cool, and it seems to have infinite continues, so I should be able to brute force it.

    An excellent way to begin the day. It turned out that the continue countdown was very important, and I should have continued and then exited the game from the level select screen, so I had to start over. Anyway, I reached the planet of 'Verminest', a nice reference to another Locomalito game. Or is it the other way around?

    This is so much fun and very difficult. I had trouble with Verminest, so I went the other way and found Rubinia and unlocked some more weapons, including a Laser primary weapon, and the Turriwall, a Turrican-style fire wall weapon.

    I think the Light special power is an item used in a special dark location, and not a weapon.

    For reference, because this still confuses me:
    • Green capsule: primary weapon up
    • Red capsule: secondary weapon up
    • Lighting bolt: +1 special power (smart bombs etc.)
    • Arrow: speed up

    The Galactic Inferno level is too difficult - I think I reached the final boss, but even getting there is extremely difficult.
  • 9267
    The Deep Space level can be used for grinding lives before trying Galactic Inferno again.

    No, wait, it can't, because you cannot replay levels. Dammit, I thought I had found a way to make this game a little bit easier.

    Argh! The Galactic Inferno is making me seethe with rage! I'm shaking my controller, punching my couch, and yell. I hate this level!
  • 9277
    I beat Galactic Inferno! It took me around 3 hours, but I finally did it! And now, some new levels to explore.
