Game Details

shooting with limited firepower, enter doors to get bullets, and/or machine gun upgrade - a sinister overtone to the game with dark music and evil enemies - overall a very challenging game to play, each level based on time to complete.

**** by inajamaica. Comment: "This is an AWESOME game. Jumping up and down from different levels on the screen is fun, and the sounds are great. The music is also really cool. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that the difficulty increases almost exponentially by the 3rd stage. Seems a little unfair!" 2004-03-01 13:16:52Z
