This report is created with input from accessibility experts and the player community to help people find games that have the accessibility features they require.

You play by moving with one stick while shooting with the other and work through floors of enemies. It stands out for blending the arcade shooting of Smash TV and Robotron with the hierarchical item collection of Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands. If those references don't mean anything to you, think of it as a bombastic shooting game with over the top collectibles.
The first screen of the game acts as a mini-practice area, there are some items to shoot and you can use the Iron Fist smart bomb weapon as many times as you like (a replacement pickup respawns after use ONLY in this room).
The arcade mini game have some time pressure, as you are chased by a giant roller and must stay ahead of it.
