This is a great game, with great gameplay, and is VERY ADDICTING. However, it has a few points that bring it down, but what's to be expected from a game that has been on every TI ever?
Gameplay 10/10: This game is very fun and addicting.
Controls 7/10: The controls for standard actions (arrows to move, 2nd to jump, ALPHA to shoot) are intuitive, but the other actions were difficult to figure out. For example, it took me a while to figure out that the inventory was assigned to Y=. Also, the quit key (MODE), is dangerously close to the jump key, and it was accidentally used on several occasions to get out of inventory.
Special Weapons & Items 5/10: The only weapons that seemed to have any practical use were the Anchor Toss (massive damage), Swear Scream(hit all foes on screen), and Badge Boomerang (obviously). The Freshman's Zit Shield and Top Secret Weapon had absolutely no function at all.
It was also difficult to figure out what the pickups did. (I still have no idea what the "E" does, although I did figure out that the diamond with a face on it was a extra life.)
Graphics 9/10: Awesome graphics, but the scrolling isn't clean (it only displays complete blocks).
Replayability 1/10: I beat this game in two days, and there is no replay value.
Overall 32/50 (64%, D): Not a must download.
