I think it's also my first time beating a game before it is released, as well. The final boss was pitiful... it died in about 10 seconds and never even attacked me. Overall the game is pretty easy on normal once you learn the game. Stage 6.2 boss is quite difficult, though. R-Typer difficulty is extremely difficult, so if you like seeing the game over screen, make sure to play on R-Typer. Stages will change if you play on R-Typer, so... yeah, I'll let you guys see what I mean. It seems that all of the difficulty settings have their own routes after a certain point and I know exactly where that point is. Continues are limited but you can get more of them somehow and I had 99 of them at one point, but the number you get seems to depend on difficulty. All of the ships are a lot of fun to use, but some of them require passwords. It looks like some are going to be patched in later or something. Not sure what is up with that. Unlocking ships is interesting since you have to finish levels to get materials to make them. I spent like 4 hours just replaying the first half of the game with different ships. R-9DH3 Concertmaster's MASSIVE laser is really fun when you fully charge it! It's not practical to use that huge laser, though. Switch version's resolution is quite poor and it has framerate problems in some situations, but it's playable and quite fun. Looking forward to playing the PS4 and PC versions.
