50 lives? Piece of cake. Cracks knuckles...Ah.

I didn't take to this game at first, but I'm really getting into it now. It's bloody hard. The adrenalin junkie AY music really helps it along.

Only 5 levels in. Might need to resort to infy lives.

Me too, and now I understand why the game has 50 lives!

'Hardcore' is a too generous definition of the game in my opinion...

Indeed. I'd have released this with infy lives. Mind you, 50 does give you a natural break point to say "I think that's quite enough for now".

I love that it is intentionally making the player suffer like hell. There are loads of blocks placed just to make certain bits really frustrating. And the music really carries you along; mixed with caffeine it really gets you 'in the zone'.

9 levels in...

Argh I think this game was actually made by the devil itself!

Level 9, the 'fishtank', was a nightmare. I'm not sure I'll be able to do that again.

Level 10...
