I'm stoked for the release of this game. I still have the original NES title, but I never could beat it. I remember getting to "Last 7 of 32" but that was about it. It just felt that in the higher levels pixels would drop from the game as the screen got more and more crowded, and I'd inevitably get hit by freaking invisible bullets.
I'm really surprised we haven't heard more about this game's release.
