"...the music is mostly just one techno track that can get stuck in your head really nicely. In fact it sounds pretty good; It works with the action nicely."
"...go five levels in and, oh my god! And this will keep on going you'll keep ramping up and you will enjoy every second of it."
"It's strangely addictive. [...] this clip that you're seeing right now... this wasn't intended to be recorded originally. I was originally just going to record one run and then when I got game over I'd go upstairs and start working on the review. But, you know what? I played a second round and recorded this. Now, after I stopped recording that round, I played a third round. I'm not lying!
"...you'll have a good time. I can guarantee you this."
And there it is.
