Tough set, tough game for me. Hats off to people who can marathon this thing.

Mastered. In which I reckon with how hard old arcade games are. Honestly I thought I'd be at this for a while longer, but I managed to pull out 82400 points on wave 24, with my last three deaths in the last ten thousand points or so because I tend to fall apart all at once for some reason.

It was an interesting experience, but not really my thing, I don't feel like I'll be coming back to this game in particular. A bit simplistic and yet finicky in its mechanics for my taste. I'll be seeing waveforms in my nightmares. I'm going to pick something more chill to play next.

How come you have to do waves 2-5 on your first life, feels a bit extreme to have to do all of them in succession deathless.

If you can't do that, you're probably not going to make it to wave 10.
