The main thing I hate about this game is that you literally need shields to play. There are certain parts of the game where there's nowhere on the screen where you won't get hit, so if you miss/lose your shield you will die no matter what. Not only that, but none of the yellow shields would pick up for me. It'd make the same sound effect as if I had picked it up while I already had a shield on, but it wouldn't do anything or protect me against anything. It didn't even change the colour of my block. The gameplay was okay and mildly entertaining, and I probably would have played more and given you a three or a four if it wasn't for the impossibility factor at certain points in the game. The block is somewhat difficult to control but that didn't bother me, it just made it more of a challenge, which is good.
