Yeah, it's also weird that you can die an infinite amount of times without getting a game over. =o/

But so far... LOVING IT!!

The little subtitle hints for all the hazards... The hidden items...

One little thing

-- when running, and changing direction, it's not as quick as it is in Meganoid 1. It does feel more realistic, needing that little bit of ground to actually slow down before changing direction, and don't know if it's intentional, but it's just kinda strange ATM. I'm sure I'll get use to it, and eventually prefer it... Just wanted to let others know first impressions.

Anyway... So far, it's fantastic. I hope GC is added, even if leaderboards aren't added because of the infinite life thing, but achievements would be awesome. THANK YOU ORANGEPIXEL!!!! You guys friggin rock

Either that or use your eyes and look for the clues.

This looks like more fun than Super Drill Panic and the original Meganoid combined. Which is what this is.

Can't wait to play it tonight!

I immediately thought the same thing when I saw the trailer. This is a terrific surprise! Orangepixel is among my favorite game developers, consistently releasing excellent titles in my favorite genre - glorious retro pixels and chiptunes! I am eagerly looking forward to the new game.
