The Price of Victory is wicked f'in difficult. Now, my hand-eye coordination isn't as good as it was in the Eighties, but I will still blame the stupid controller for not letting me jump. And what's with that ENERGY gauge!? Took me an hour and a half to even get to the first boss (stupid V power-up ruining my day). Tutorial was a little confusing, but when I realized I have to stop and heal, and that this is a partial resource management game, I stopped wanting to rip the controller in half. Maybe that'd fix the darned jump button, though. I had a few bucks left on a gift card I threw at ya, as the game brought back the memories of me wanting to become an engineer and design a controller that has a functioning jump button. If you ever have time to clean up the tutorial, that'd be cool.

Interesting. 4.99 is bit much for the quality here but the gameplay is solid so maybe 2.99 or 3.99. lol
Thanks for the comment! I do appreciate any feedback thrown at me. I hope the game play is providing loads of entertainment!
I apologies for the art it's not really my specialty, but I do take pride in my game play. If people play it for free, but sing it's praises. I'll accept that as a job well-done. :)
Version notes 1.0.3
FML I updated the build but not the version number on the game title screen. I'm sorry about that. :(
Esc Key is now bound it functions the same in game as the START Button / T Key (it pauses the game.) While on the Title Screen the Esc Key will Quit to Desktop.
edit (addition) re-uploading 1.0.3 with correct version number displaying.
