This game is alot harder than I remember it, and that is probably why I never ended up beating it on Genesis console. I am currently at my first time playing through and I am on the machine level and it sucks I hate this board there are definitely some frustrating parts throughout this game. I don't know how anyone in their right mind could beat this game with only 3 deaths w/o the save option. Sorry just needed to vent for a bit. LOL.
