Fine!

A disgusting game! Difficulty curve pierces the sky at the sixth level. Control... very unresponsive. And the problem is not in me. I went through "Mega Man 2" without any problems.

"A disgusting game!" I laughed at first, but you are absolutely right. This game is putrid and vile.
PhilTheStampede 3 Jun 2019 19:36
I beat the bonus stage and the first stage and nothing popped, no pun intended.

Mastered!

Level 1-5 what an easy and fun game. Level 6. !@#$ this game.
MrScottyTay 20 Feb 2022 08:33
This game was fun, but don't think I could've done the last level without save States. I tried to keep save States to a minimum at the start of each level only just to save time. But that went out the window by the end haha.

Yay, mastered! Quite fun, but nearly lost my nerves during the last boss.
Jaytwelve 25 Aug 2023 16:12
Mastered! Not bad game at all.
Richglix 21 Sep 2023 02:16
Very basic set but fun nonetheless. Thanks!

I actually enjoyed this game. I agree the difficulty spike from 5-6 is pretty sickening. I was catching myself getting overly upset trying to figure out how to bounce up to the first bonus game in Stage 6. Tip is to hold the jump button while hitting the bumper to bounce you up. Either way, after all these years I was happy to come back and finally best this childhood game. And yes the controls are pretty unforgiving compared to any other games I’ve played.

Mastered !!!
namae3 11 Nov 2023 21:23
Somehow mastered on my first run. Finished off the final boss on the last life of my last continue - it was nerve wracking.

I really love some of soundtrack (like when you defeat the boss) so I trascribed it on sheet: https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/download/pdf/5154

This game was really fun, not sure where all the hate is coming from!! Except that last boss, ouch what a pain.
