hopefully there will never be achievements for this game, that way nobody will ever have a reason to play it

Well, I have to make achievements for this game. It's been requested several times, and several people have given up on it, so it must be done. I'm sorry!

I'm glad the developers created the 'Mute Music' cheat: Pause, hold b then unpause while holding b. :D

Yup, and then you can just play the top-down-shooter music of your choice in place of it. =D

Why this terrible game merits 600 points is beyond my understanding, especially when 120 of those points are tied up in not hitting a specific type of enemy for no real reason.
