Undressing women has never been this fun!
Sentimental Shooting is a game with no plot, no boring dialogues,
and no useless options to choose from. What you have here
is a spaceship that travels above a human forman innocent
looking girland your ultimate goal is to blow up every
article of clothing that that form wears. But it isn't going
to be easy. While you go about trying to finish your "job",
a group of enemy ships will launch in your direction and fire
at you like there's no tomorrow. If you're familiar with old
school games like Galaga or even Twin Bee, you might understand
where Sentimental Shooting is coming from.
It takes a while getting used to this game as it's been nearly
two decades since I've touched Twin Bee and Galaga. At least,
with these two you only need to concentrate on the enemy ships
and dodging is never an issue. With Sentimental Shooting,
you have to shoot at the clothes and at the same time avoid
missiles and other opponents that randomly appear out of nowhere.
You also get to battle bosses that send you bullets at an
unreasonably fast rate. This is what hurts most: You can't
afford to duck in the wrong direction as the screen keeps
moving upwards, causing you to sometimes miss your target.
Sentimental Shooting has three levelsEasy, Normal,
and Hard. You get better viewing pleasure the harder the game
goes. Let me just warn you, they weren't joking when they
said the game is difficult. It gets painful the more ambitious
you become. Not to worry, though. You get a lot of bonuses
and extra small allies that help make your battles easier.
There's also the magic key "X" that instantly annihilates
enemies when the screen gets too crowded. However, the use
of this special is limited, so hit this key moderately. Original
number of lives are 3, but if you use a "trainer"
or a cheat application successfully, you can actually achieve
god mode. Alas, I could never make this cheat work so I had
to barbarically storm my way to the top.
All in all, it's a fun game to play once in a while. Replay
value is very high, considering you don't have to go through
so many hurdles just to get the game going. Oh, and by the
way, the command key is "Z". It took me quite a
while to figure this out when I couldn't get the game to start.
