It's not terrible, but the downward zigzag in level two is brut-al.

And it probably has the worst Gradius syndrome of any of the shooters on the system.

 

Oh yeah man just hit dat RESET button if you die at all.

 

Has the makings of a low score contest as well. 

The game really isn’t that good. Shame, Natsume programmed it I think. 

It looks cool. Control is decent. Weapons are lacking. And it just seems like a shot in the dark when firing at enemies.

Meeeehhhhh. I like the game a lot, but it may well be from me spending time "mastering" it. I've 1LC'ed it a few times and I don't really consider any of it random, quite the opposite actually, it's really very predictable.

I'm getting better at level 2. It isn't as difficult as I remember it being as a kid. It isn't so bad if you die in the first half. It's easy and you can get your weapons back. But if you die in the second half after the snake boss then you might as well reset.

I hope it's a high score contest with a rule against point pressing. Low score contests suck for shooters.

I don't expect many people to finish Abadox, let alone be able to manage a low score on it.

I liked low score on UN Squadron. It presented a unique challenge in that in order to beat the game you (basically) NEED to get the best ship for the huge increase in firepower. But that means getting points to buy it. It's an interesting challenge on certain games.

I can’t get passed the vertical scrolling laser beam level. I keep dying after the mid boss. I guess I mean it seems like I shooting but can’t tell how to hit the enemies.

Damn. That's near the end of the game from looking at a Youtube playthrough. I've only been able to reach level 3.

Well played Tables. I’m guessing Power Gloves has a better score? “Is that a good score”? Psh! He’s smarter than that.
