Kids level is really easy
Yes, the FAST increase you speed and SLOW slow down your opponent is VS mode and give you more points in solo mode.
That capabilities are the same but hit box change.
So if you finish the game in "NGF" mode with the neogeoCD ship then you beat the game in the hardest mode. It won't be easy but it is possible.
In versus mode, each time the game loop the enemies have more and more lives.
The best we managed to reach is loop 5.
From the teaser video i can say it reminds me of the old shoot em up construction kit on Comodore 64 and Amiga.
You could do the same kind of game with it. It was kinda easy but the gaphics where kinda hard if you not so talented with computer graphics.
Anyway still looks very nice, if the graphics improve more they could actually sell the next games for big money.
Anyway awesome work to the creators !
Your game would look great in one of these, not to mention the fact that you would make a ton of us that missed it extremely happy. I'm sure you got plenty of requests (I know I sent one) for extra copies.
I'm sure if you made a post asking for people's interest in another MVS run you'd get a pretty good idea of how many more copies you could sell.
