that seemed to do the trick :D
one other suggestion: can you make it like the original, where if you shoot a bad guy before destroying the generator, they pause for a few seconds ?

I'm really enjoying playing this :)

I did originally have the pause in, but it just made the game too easy (without the killer walls)!

Anyway, did some more work on it tonight, fixed some bugs, added the last few robot variations and began work on the remaining levels. Also added a pcb score bonus! :P

Great job on this! :) I loved this game when it first came out, like "Beserk" but on steroids hehe

It is pretty hard to play though, I got killed out so quick I was like..."What the... what happened?"

it wasn't like that in the original, but it IS really cool, thanks for the great remake. :D :cheers:

What a nice chap. Credit from one of the original developers is a huge pat on the back. Well done, sir! :)
