Thanks for reviewing this. The conclusion makes an interesting point that should be obvious, but is often overlooked: creative/maximized innovations are remembered, and foolish/wasted innovations are forgotten.

From the word go, I enjoyed reading this review. Given this is indeed a game that virtually nobody has heard of, as you astutely pointed out in the intro, comparing and contrasting this game to other well knowns such as Space Invaders was a good call. Your descriptions and examples about how the game is unfair and what strategies work and don't work also help give the reader a clear picture of what this game is like.

Good job with this one. One thing that could perhaps be improved is it's hard to tell whether you like or dislike the game until the final paragraph. Sure, you make it obvious the game is very challenging, but there are a lot of people who go for this sort of thing, so I can't necessarily equate an insane challenge level to bad gaming. Perhaps that's being a bit nitpicky, as I think this is an excellent read with plenty of descriptions, comparisons, and contrasts to help us understand a really obscure game.
