Oh my God. You know what? How?
I understand, and even to a certain extent encourage that the point, the very PURPOSE of this game is to be ridiculous, but SERIOUSLY.
I managed to reach stage four in an actual play, even sort of getting buy the completely absurd boss at the end of stage 3. But stage 4 is one big mess. It's just completely insane. I don't think it's actually possible to get through that stage without being killed every few seconds.
And then the boss is basically the same thing, except you're restricted to a thin, moving corridor (touching walls kills you, by the way) which undulates between being just wide enough to fit in, to closing up completely in different areas.
All while the same impossible maelstrom of bullets flies around.
I sometimes can't believe that the developers went to all of the trouble of making the stages and enemies, and indeed the whole game, so pretty... when no one's every going to actually see it.
