Phew... I finally beat this game. I was sooo focused the whole time. I haven't this focus since I beating R-TYPE III, Axelay, and Alien Solider and many more. I well forever remember this game as one those "frustrating games to beat" and I freaking loved ending of this game.
Anyways, here's my score, I only had to use 1 continue out of the 9 they give you. So good luck to everyone else that well try on getting a high score too, cause this was at my 7th attempt at trying to beat this game, lol.
