If you're wondering why this game doesn't have a High Score leaderboard, well it's because it's extremely easy to infinitely grind free score on this game.

I think u can not press L + R + Shot buttons for achievement "Complete the game without using a Bomb"

Why not have a speed run leaderboard?

Not a huge fan of hitless achieves, especially those that require a lot of time investment before needing to reset.

I'm revisiting this soon. Also I'm pretty sure there's no in-game timer for a speedrun leaderboard. I plan on removing the achievement for beating the game on Hard without dying.

Demoted 3. If you don't feel like the set is good, leave a suggestion, because I don't see how I can improve it further.

Going to recheck the actual code of some of these soon, because it was only my 2nd set and I know the RAM in this game is bad.

Hi Evereyone....I asked meleu to link the hash 01e10d6afdd0c4a3e160ebb7286c18ba to this game. It's a MSU1 patch for better sound effects.
