This looks like a great game. But it feels a little not-great.
Properly titled Silpheed: The Lost Planet
You restart an entire level if you die, but you get plenty of chances to avoid shots. Some of the enemy appearances and movements can be very confusing.
The second bunch of chatter-naration mis-spells "resque mission" =/
THERE IS ZERO REPLAYABILITY.
There is an "option" to load a savefile, but there's nothing to do but restart from scratch. You can't even skip some of the cutscenes. What the heck. You die very easily without a lot of practice, and you can't stop playing and come back another day. Bad bad bad bad.
