Along the way you meet larger bosses to fight, each of which has its own patterns of attack. You have infinite lives, but the game is very hard and dying sends you back to the start of the level. At the end of each level you get a grade based on the time taken to defeat a boss, damage avoided, and the number of parried attacks.
The result is a really tough challenge that revels not only in its 1930's visuals but walking the line between impossibility and fun. If you have the dedication and time to try and try again, it's a game that is hugely satisfying to get through -- partly because not every family will manage it.
Depicted in cartoon Tom and Jerry style, but there are melting faces, exploding bodies and eye balls popping out as you can see in this example.
10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Although it looks like a little kid's game, it actually requires a large amount of quick reaction and timing skill. But more than that, you need huge amounts of resilience and patience to keep trying and slowly improving.
