NotesAccessibility Notes

The game is old school in style and because of this quite difficult. There are no accessibility settings but the game's design does mean the enemies are bright and relatively large.

Along with the left/right direction and jump control, shooting is controlled by a slider that you can lock on in a direction. This means you don't need to hold down the fire button, or press it rapidly.
