RayofJay has given the whole game an overhaul. Palette changes, complete level layout changes, enemy logic changes (AI/timers), enemy health, bullet speeds, countless timer values, Power up function, death decrements your weapon level instead of resetting it, gaining weapon upgrades allows you to do more damage now, screen repeat function to make the game longer, double digit life count, randomized enemy locations (a select few) to name a few.
Some have claimed this game is unplayably hard. Yes, it is very hard, but, once you know the secrets and tricks, it’s really not bad at all. I recorded myself completing this hack with no continues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnU5LlA1t-A&t=116s
Expect to die a lot, though. My modification that only decrements your main weapon power instead of resetting it to zero on each death is critical for this hack to be playable.
Version 2.15: The hack was broken up into several patches to allow for customization and difficulty selection. Additionally, there is a patch to modify the jeeps’ bullet direction.

Amazing hack with improvements for all types of players!Reviewed By: edwinmusic on 21 Feb 2020
Wonderful option for players! novice or intermediate players can now have a better fun option with the “Main - Level and Enemy Layout” patch. For intermediate players it would be excellent to launch a “Main - Level and Enemy Layout” patch with 7 lives to make it more challenging but playable! Ray of Jay could you please them? Thank you for your great work!
Version 2.15 Recommended - Yes
