An unforgiving game gets a heart

Reviewed By: timeisup on 10 Apr 2020

Sorry for the bad joke, but this was an unforgiving game in many ways. One major one was your hearts going to zero after a game over (3 lives, no chance of any 1-ups.) This wonderful patch simply halves them, which is much easier to deal with, especially when coupled with the double hearts patch from annoyance fixes patches. Your experience will still be zero after each game over, however.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
