Funnily enough haiden, I personally always thought of this as one of the games' strengths.

I got through easy on the day I bought it (yes, I bought it before it went freeware), and was a trifle disappointed, but normal took me a degree more practice to beat and I've never done it on insane.


for my money, this is actually how difficulties should be, so once you raise the difficulty, you need to raise your game to match.

I also noticed philip seems to carry this on in his other games as well, in fact generally I'd say formulating difficulty levels seems to be one of philip's major strengths.

Hi,
My only criticism is the shear difference in level difficulties. I can beat
easy, hands down, but I cannot beat normal at all.

Best Regards,
Hayden

You should actually give it a try especially as it's free, you can get it
from Tom's free games section.

it was also produced by philip bennifall back when he was running pb games,
and has various cool features like cut scenes and multiple weapons, pluss
some rather fun bosses and obstacles.

in fact I think my only major problem with the game is that while the side
scrolling levels are rather fun, there are also none side scrolling levels
which can vary in quality.

one in particular is especially awsome (I'm thinking of the torgon battle
here), but a couple of the others are rather less interesting.

Stil, the game has far more good levels than bad ones imho.

Beware the grue!

I have never played Tarzan Junior, so cannot comment on it. But all of the

others are good side scrollers.

I personally wouldn't like to choose.

superliam is a great game with cutscenes etc, and is stil fun to play, in

fact the same could be said for Tarzan junior, however Mota is a far more

inervative game sinse it's practically speaking the first true 2D side
scroller with significant use of vertical movement, also it's an
adventure game not an arcade game.

Q9 is simply a case of the concept of a side scrolling arcade game ala
superliam done exceptionally well.

If I were asked to choose, my vote would probably go to Mota sinse in
many ways it pushes things forward more, but Q9 is stil a great game in
it's own right and I'm very much looking forward to having more of it in
the upgrade.

Beware the grue!
